“Beautiful property in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We always look for a property with a pool, a view and somewhere shady to sit to enjoy the scenery. Capanno del Lupo ticked all the boxes and offered so much more.
As a group of 5 (parents with grown up children) there was plenty of space to find somewhere quiet for time alone or dining and sitting areas both inside and out to socialise together. The property is very comfortable and well equipped.
Sue and John are excellent hosts, welcoming guests at the bottom of the drive and showing them the best route to the top. The welcome pack was much appreciated and enabled us to put together a meal on arrival. Sue also arranged a delicious Tuscan meal that was served at the property and we had great fun making pizzas with Sue which were cooked in the wood fired oven by John.
We managed fewer visits out than we had planned because the pool and grounds were so inviting that it was difficult to move from watching the ever changing landscape and enjoying the scent of the lavender, honeysuckle and jasmine.
We highly recommend this property and will be back for another visit.

“A very special villa”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from a fantastic stay at Capanno del lupo. Whilst we would certainly echo the praises of other reviewers on the excellent facilities and location, it was John and Sue's hospitality which made our stay so special. Outstanding examples of this were:
Meeting and guiding us to the villa
Providing a generous welcome pack sufficient to feed 6 hungry adults
Ferrying some members of the group to a nearby village to watch the World Cup final when it transpired that it was not available at the villa.
Thank you John and Sue.

Thank you for your lovely words and it was a pleasure having you all to stay. We like to think that here, at Capanno Del Lupo, we always have solutions so taking you out for football was fun! We hope to welcome you here again one day.

“Holiday Hideaway with the 'WOW!' Factor”
Reviewed 10 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We arrived in the dead of night, having driven non-stop from the UK - yes, it’s possible! Nonetheless, the reception was warm and welcoming, with glowing beacons of light shining through the darkness to show our way. The kettle was full and still warm, there was ice in the freezer, glasses chilling in the fridge and a cork eased from the neck of the bottle. The holiday had begun!

This was a return visit for us all – 4 adults and 2 children (seven and five) - so we knew what to expect. We had a bit of a late start the following morning, but John and Sue waited quietly in their own ‘quarters’ until we surfaced, ready and eager to tell us what local events and activities were being planned in the area over the coming week and what changes and new attractions were available since our previous visit.

The house was very comfortable, well-equipped and spotless, just as we remembered – a ‘home-from-home’, but better! The pool, the stunning views, the countryside, the peace….. All this to be savoured, and despite the rumbustious turmoil of two excited children, four adults unleashed on holiday and the added joy and distraction of Sophie (the adorable dog) and Hobnob (the cutest of cats).

Although this was just a short break to recharge the batteries, we made full use of the facilities on offer and made it down the mountain to Arezzo, Anghiari, Sansepolcro and Manzi, fully sampling the delights of Italian cuisine, drinks and ice cream! We also explored the local markets and shops in some depth, too.

But most of all, we relaxed and rediscovered the full meaning of enjoyment, in our family and the friendship of the hosts.

We loved it – and we’ll be back, John and Sue (and next time we’ll bring our own baked beans and Marmite!). Definitely recommended.

Lots of love,

Alan, Lindsey, Robin, Louise, Ellie and Caitlin xxxxxx
