"Our multigenerational family of eight spent three weeks at La Capella. The villa was the perfectly located base for a grand family 'introduction to Italy" adventure. Upon arrival, Jude and Richard offered glasses of cold Prosecco while we were shown around the house and grounds. We arrived to find a carefully selected welcome basket of food and wine and a fridge stocked with the basics including a jar of homemade fig jam. The meticulously detailed Welcome book that had been emailed to us prior to our trip was available in book form on our arrival at the villa. We soon learned that this thoughtful attention to detail and guest comfort would carry through in every detail of our stay.
La Capella was idyllically located while enjoying all the modern amenities and almost within walking distance of local produce and a local trattoria. Ours is a family of cooks and we found the kitchen fully stocked for cooking and the grapevine covered pergola a blissful place to dine al fresco with a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing. While nearby Acquapendente was great for convenience items, we purchased organic meats, produce and handmade pasta at nearby farms and markets (all recommended in the, by now, indispensable Welcome book). We learned to carry "the book" in our car to guide us to local points of interest, trattorias, and on recommended day trips. The villa grounds were lushly awash with roses, hydrangeas and fruit trees. Our ten year old grandson loved picking the peaches and fresh figs!
Jude and Richard's personal attention to our family went above and beyond anything we had ever experienced.
Jude arranged for Dori, a personal chef, to prepare a Tuscan meal on our second evening at the villa. She arranged for hiking guide, Petra, to lead us on a day long hike through ancient Etruscan tunnels to Sovana. When we expressed an interest in walking an ancient forest below Torre Alfina Castle, Jude and Richard guided us on a walk through the magnificent forest they obviously love.
Our adventures included the vineyard dotted landscapes of the Chiantigiana Wine Trail and the Val D'Orca, the Fosso Bianco wild thermal springs and an overnight trip to Positano with a stop at Pompeii. Day trips included Bagnoreggio, Pitigliano and Sorano and to Tarquinia's amazing intact Etruscan frescoed tombs. Fascinating!
There is not enough space here to list all the reasons we loved La Capella. Our family gives it a "thumbs up"...way, way up!"
