This villa is HUGE. It's gorgeous, clean, well kept, peaceful and it has everything you could possibly want or need for an enjoyable stay in Tuscany. You're truly in the middle of nowhere at this villa, which is such a breath of fresh air. It takes time to get anywhere around you, but it's worth the effort. Five adults stayed here for a week to celebrate my mother's 65th birthday and the villa was an amazing place to spend the day or come home to at night after a long day touring the area. There was plenty of space inside and outside for everyone to have their privacy during our stay.
A few highlights:
THE KITCHEN: It had everything you could possible want or need to cook for yourself. We spent a lot of time in the kitchen making breakfasts, lunches and dinners. It was nice to have that option and we took full advantage of it.
THE GARDEN: We were given a ton of veggies and spices for cooking from the villa's garden upon arrival. They were fresh and delicious. It was a nice perk having a well tended garden on site.
THE POOL: The salt water pool is phenomenal. We would literally eat appetizers and drink wine IN the pool as the sun set. It just doesn't get better than that.
THE HOT TUB: The wood burning hot tub was amazing under the star packed sky at night time.
THE PROPERTY MANAGERS: From the very beginning to the very end, dealing with Jacopo and Fabio was very easy and pleasant. They communicated well and followed through with everything that they said they do for us. They even offered to have food in the fridge upon our arrival for only the cost of the foods we chose. They cooked for us the first night for a small fee and everything was perfectly fresh and homemade from the garden. We had leftovers from that meal that lasted us all week. They even have a wine cellar with very reasonably priced wine available. It seemed to cost even less than what the stores nearby charged. The icing on the cake was when we realized we were missing salt one night for cooking. We called Fabio to ask him if it was hidden somewhere and, in fact, it was not. Fabio literally biked salt to the villa for us within 15 minutes. It was unbelievable. They both went above and beyond the call of hosting. Throughout our stay, Jacopo would check in here and there to make sure everything was going okay. He even recommended different tours we could take and we loved the ones he suggested.
Stay here-you will NOT be sorry!

We spent a week at this villa to celebrate my husband's parent's 50th wedding anniversary as well as their 75th birthdays. We presented various food limitations (gluten-free, Kosher, etc.) and Jacopo was so kind to e-mail a great deal ahead of the trip to help plan a few meals that they prepared for us, as well as our grocery shopping - including a surprise dinner party for the anniversary which Jacopo so generously researched and volunteered to go to Florence to a Kosher butcher to make the meal truly special for the honored guests of the party! Above and beyond anything that was necessary - simply classy. Which is how we would describe the whole operation at Caggia - classy. Everything is so thoughtfully arranged, placed and planned. From linens, towels and kitchen equipment to a lovely selection of wines available. We recommend having Jacopo and Fabio make your arrival meal, at least! Delicious and lasted us into the next day! They also outdid themselves with an elegant and delicious meal for the anniversary party - leftovers lasted us a few lunches! They are both so accommodating and have already thought of everything. Beds are comfortable, towels are plentiful, the renovation of the property (overseen by them several years ago) is smartly done for maximum comfort and appeal. The gardens (Fabio's endeavor) are truly lovely. The property is situated with sweeping views in every direction, making for such tranquility and peace that is rarely found. We were there with three couples and three children (aged 4, 6, 9) and everyone had plenty of space - and the kids, who all live in cities at home, had room to run and enjoy the great outdoors. The pool is perfect for afternoons of entertainment, while there is enough space around the property for privacy, rest, and relaxation even if the pool is occupied by delighted (and therefore loud!) children. There was far more room than even we needed so I wouldn't hesitate to return with an additional family or two and still know that we'd have plenty of room. For those desiring to be closer to the action of Siena or any town activities, this property might not be as easy since it involves 20 minutes or so of winding and/or unpaved roads to get to Siena, however it is worth the charming drive to have the perfect tranquility upon returning from any sightseeing. Simply put, we loved it and hope to return some day. Mille Grazie to Jacopo and Fabio for taking such wonderful care of us all!

Our family of five (3 children and 2 adults) stayed in this beautiful house for 10 days in Dec 2012. From the moment we arrived, we felt warm, comfortable and completely relaxed.
Whilst the photos show exactly what the house looks like, what they can't convey is the comfort, the attention to detail and all the little extras that make this such a fantastic place. The fully stocked wine rack, the selection of glasses, the quality and quantity of the towels, the selection if books, the fantastic cooker ... these all just make the holiday experience that bit more special.
There was enough space in the house for many more people but we felt so indulged having it all to ourselves. Whilst we were there in winter and couldn't enjoy the outdoors as we would have in summer, we still loved waking up to the stunning views every day. The children had a great time playing outside in the frost and ice (we're from Australia so it's exciting!!). The house was warm and cosy and we had a great time sampling the wine and cooking with all the beautiful ingredients that we bought on our daily expeditions.
The location worked really well for us. We loved being in the middle of the countryside but we were close enough to Siena to pop in regularly when we needed to. We ticked off everywhere on our wish list of places to see with nowhere being further than an hour's drive away.
Fabio and Jacopo were fantastic hosts and always available to answer questions or provide us with recommendations.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Le Caggia and can't wait to come back.
On a final note, Tuscany in winter is BEAUTIFUL. It was cold but we had mostly sunny days. There was hardly anyone around. There was no traffic. Parking was easy. And everything was open. A great time to visit!

Before choosing Le Caggia, our group spent many hours preparing lists of requirements, then researching villas and locations, and finally creating spreadsheets to compare requirements, amenities and disadvantages. This was followed by emails to the few "finalists", making inquires about the details. After this process, we chose Le Caggia because of the location, appearance, spaciousness, the fact that the price included everything (no unknowns for heat, hydro etc.) and the manager's responses.
Our group of ten rented Le Caggia for 25 days in October; during that time we came to regard it as home. The villa is even more attractive than in the pictures and even with all of us there; with 3 bedrooms in a separate building, it felt very spacious. The kitchen is large enough for group preparation of meals, and the grounds are lovely for a quiet stroll. We found the villa to be clean, well maintained and well supplied with the accoutrements required for daily living.
Most days, we toured around to different towns in Tuscany, which was a new adventure every day. We found the villa to be centrally located for visiting places like San Gimigiano, Volterra, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Assissi, Sienna, Florence and Chianti. At the end of the day, we enjoyed coming "home" to Le Caggia.
The road to the villa (and to some degree, many Tuscan roads) requires careful attention while driving, particularly if you are driving a standard transmission vehicle that you are not fully comfortable with. One suggestion would be the installation of a large convex mirror where the Le Caggia driveway meets the road to allow better visibility.
We visited the restaurant down the road, Donato e Donata, for one meal while we were there. Although it is not a 5 star setting or gourmet food and little English is spoken, the food and prices were good and the owners very hospitable.
The quarry up the road is worth a visit for the fabulous views of Sienna and the nearby Castle. The nearest town for groceries is Rosia, several miles away.
Jacapo and Fabbio, the property managers, were very gracious and responded promptly to any questions. On request, they stocked some basic food staples prior to our arrival. The meals they cooked for us were divine and ample; well worth the extra expenditure. They made us feel like honoured guests.
Overall, our Italian holiday was like 25 days in heaven, and Le Caggia was the perfect place to stay.

We had the pleasure of staying at le Caggia August 25-September 1st 2012
We found the place online and read all the reviews and as you can see there are no complaints. We had a group of 9 and could have easily added 9 or so more. It is a great out of the way location that is near Siena. Around 12 kilometers I think. Very private and well appointed. It's the sort of home that doesn't feel like a rental, it actually feels more like the home of a friend. Everything is there that you need including bar stocked with wine at very reasonable rates. The caretakers were great- Jacopo and Fabio could not be more welcoming. We have traveled and rented homes all over the world and this was the best!
Can't wait to return
