The Suite Il Tinaio is a ground floor apartment in the building which is on the other side of a courtyard of Villa Caprera. The apartment was decorated in a very simple and elegant way. Every detail was nicer than the other. The rooms where very spacious and comfortable. The nights were a little chilling at the time but the heating was perfect so we had no trouble. It was very well equiped. There were everything in the kitchen and batroom that we could need, including tea, coffe, slat, sugar etc..
The only trouble we had was about the wi-fi, it was not very stable and when the times it worked it was slow and we could not connect more than one device (phone & a ipad at the same time)
When we arrived there fresh flowers in every room, a fresh baked tart in our kitchen and a cooled sparkling wine in our fridge :)
Daniela, our host was speaking a little English and it was enough for simple conversations. She was also very kind and helpfull.
There were two garden areas where we used for our breakfasts and for some relaxing time. The Villa is located in a nice spot in the village and overall location was great too. It was close to Siena city center (max 5-6 minutes drive to a free parking spot and 10 minutes walk to center) and it was also close to the main road from Firenze to Siena. At the heart of the beautiful Toskana area. It was in the center of places like San Gimignano, Cortona, Montepulciano, Pieaza, Montalcino, Chianti etc... You can go all of these villages maximum in an hour by car. The place has also free parking space just beside the apartment.
We really had a great holiday and a very nice stay. The only thing I would want to change about the place would be the busy road nearby. When you are in the apartment with windows closed there was not a single noise so we slept like babies but when using the garden you hear the noise of the cars passing by.
