The house is ideal for large family groups, but thanks to the size of the house and the well-separated rooms, it is also suitable for other larger parties.
The large garden and swimming pool are great places for relaxation. As well as a balcony and a large terrace with a great view of the countryside, the house has another small terrace, which exits to the garden and a patio in front of the main entrance. Feel free to use the outside pizza oven located on the main terrace. You are also welcome to take advantage of the vegetable garden. Depending on the season it offers onions, tomatoes and zucchini, as well as plenty of rosemary, thyme and sage. The fruit trees bear apples, pears, plums and figs. There are lemon trees in the patio. The olives are harvested in November and processed in Panzano to finest extra virgin olive oil. A sample of the oil awaits every visitor and can be purchased on request. The grape is processed in the winery of the Tenuta Carobbio to Chianti Classico wine. Tenuta Carobbio is situated a few minutes away from Il Capiteto and offers a shop and wine tasting.
Thanks to its central location in the Chianti region, "Il Capiteto" provides many interesting targets for excursions. The nearby villages of Greve (5 km) and Panzano (4 km) offer a good variety for shopping such as supermarket, deli and small family-run bakeries and butchers.
The cities of Florence and Siena are both just 30 km (18 miles) away. San Gimignano is 43 km (26 miles), Radda in Chianti 15 km (9 miles) and Castellina in Chianti 16 km (10 miles) away. There is a diversity of restaurants from simple to exquisite Tuscan cuisine. During the high season the entire Chianti region offers a variety of cultural events such as classical concerts, wine festivals, antique markets, and more.
