In the Crete Senesi, at the heart of a working organic farm, the two traditional farmhouse apartments sleep six. La Casetta is a large open space for two: a double bed, living area and kitchen with dining table. Il Poderino has two double bedrooms, a living room, one bathroom and a kitchen with fireplace. Both are beautifully furnished with family pieces. There is access to a large common garden with barbecue and table for dining. This is an ideal place in which to enjoy the countryside in spring and autumn, far from the bustle of a city. The focus of farm activity is on the breeding of thoroughbred horses. Mares and foals graze in the fields and horses train on the farm's sand track. Situated within the Ombrone River valley, you can enjoy walks along its banks and in the surrounding woods. Here you will discover an unspoilt landscape of cultivated fields, abandoned farms, and many species of wild animals and birds. There are many good restaurants and trattorias serving magnificent local wines. Alternatively, you can have fun preparing dinner in the well-equipped kitchen with a fireplace for grilling. The Rapolano thermal spas are just a few minutes' drive away, and cultural cities such as Siena, Arezzo, Florence are within easy reach.

Immerso in una natura incontaminata. Ci sono stato a novembre. Luogo accogliente, persone accoglienti disponibili. Ottimo servizio e cortesia. Ci tornerei e ci tornero' volentieri.

Un podere bellissimo e lasciato intatto nel suo fascino, una campagna vera, un azienda vera. Accuddire ai cavalli, veder nascere i pulcini, cani e gatti, passeggiate interminabili senza udire rumore alcuno se non quello della natura. E poi colazione da Dio, pasta fatta in casa anche con lezione per imparare. In poche parole siamo tornati a casa diversi e felici

I spent an amazing weekend here , Az . Agr. Capannacce in the province of Siena. I was with my girlfriend , Scarlett , and when we woke up on Saturday morning , from our window we saw this incredible landscape, surrounded by nature and surrounded by the rolling hills of Siena. When we went down for breakfast we found ourselves in the classic spoiled for choice in the face of delicacies , all made ¿¿in house, that the staff of Capannacce offers to its guests. Then the amazing thing was that one of the horses owned by the company he ate a clump of grass from my hand ! Perhaps it is normal for them , but for one of the "city " is a really unique experience . I started by telling you that I was there with my girlfriend , well Sunday morning I asked her to marry me and ... Capannacce happen to them in the spring! So thank you to the family Folco for the wonderful weekend . Now I'm home and I'm relishing the salad with oil bought from you , and thanks again ... soon ! Michael & Scarlett
