Country Relais & Spa Le Capanne is a 100+ year old farmhouse we purchased and later renovated in 2014. It is a Rustic, Country Chic Style Villa located in the Tuscan countryside of arguably one of Italy's most historical and prominent cities: Volterra. Adjacent to us is Ulignano's Natural Reserve Park: Reserve Natural di Monte Nero. Villa Le Capanne sits on over 100 acres of land, where we contribute to the growth of our local community, farming grain and producing our own Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Vera Toscana. For our clients, fig trees, berry bushes, asparagus ferns, lemon bushes, mint, rosemary and basil grow. 

With 360 degree panoramic views, Villa Le Capanne offers exquisite, breathtaking views from every angle. Villa Le Capanne offers a variety of private and shared spaces, perfect for holidays, business venture and weddings. With seven bedrooms and two private suites, housing a maximum of twenty-two persons, Villa Le Capanne is ideal for large groups looking for a peaceful, private escape to relax and unwind at a location where everything is brought directly to you. Our house is your house and we would not have it any other way; let us take care of you while you sit back, relax and enjoy your holiday to the fullest.

"We scoured the Tuscan hills looking for a suitable venue for our wedding and looked at many, but le Capanne had the magic!

The villa itself has all the charm of rural Tuscany with authentic modern styling and breathtaking scenery from every opening. Dario, Vera and all the Giovannini family were fantastic from the very start. Their help and organisation was invaluable to our preparation and on our wedding day itself their service and attention to detail way exceeded our expectations. The food was to absolutely fantastic. We will be highly recommending this place for any special occasion and will be forever grateful for finding this gem. We are already thinking of our next big celebration as an excuse to come and stay again! Thank-you!"

"I was lucky enough to stay here as part of a Lovegrove photography workshop. This venue is so beautiful, peaceful and I really didn't want to leave. The rooms were stunning, the food gorgeous and the staff amazing. Looking forward to going back again some day."
