About Esther and Stefan Schwarz
Esther and Stefan are Swiss, who have been visiting Tuscany for over 20 years. They enjoy the history, art, architecture, culture, food and wine that the region offers. When the opportunity arose for them to purchase a property on this famous estate they were very much attracted to its peaceful location, as well as its close proximity to the famous historical towns of Tuscany. They bought the beautifull Villa from David and Karen Conti.
Esther and Stefan Schwarz purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Esther and Stefan Schwarz chose Castelnuovo Berardenga
The Villa and its surrounding landscape present even better than the photographs show and the glowing reviews of past guests are testimony for its special appeal. The Villa has been recently restored with the finest Tuscan materials and provides superior accommodation and facilities. Villa La Cappella is part of Villa d'Arceno. The antique splendor is still present in every farmhouse and traces of the ancient crafts are to be seen in not much known corners: what strikes today is the splendid harmony of the vines that follow the dancing movements of the hills and encircle with elegance the farmhouses. Unpaved roads and footpaths wind among woods of holm-oaks and amazing alleys with cypress trees: who lives in these places breathes history and finds again peace and harmony, thanks to a respected nature. You'll find more information on http://www.arceno.it/en/history/ With your holidays at Villa La Cappella you support YMCAs (Founded in 1844 by George Willimas in London) as a non-profit organisation. Esther & Stefan invest there payments into youth.

A Tuscan Delight
Coming from Australia, we were really pleased we allowed two weeks for our stay in this superbly situated and elegantly appointed three level Tuscan villa, designed by our hosts Stefan and Esther just over two years ago. It meant we could plan our days according to the weather (mostly sunny days in our case) and how we felt. Cappella di Pancole is a very spacious, clean and comfortable home to relax in over a good book, in front the open fire, or simply lounging outside around the large table and beside the heated privat pool on the enormous terrace overlooking lovely gardens and lawn leading on to a 180° view of the surrounding forest-covered hills. The pool is very nice also by night and so warm. The villa is also a welcome home to return to after a long walk through the 1100 hectare estate, or a half or full day drive to one or more of the many beautifully preserved medieval towns and villages which surround this much loved area of Italy, where we sampled some of the finest food and wine, and visited many charming markets and shops. Our villa had everything included we could wish for: the best quality kitchen appliances, comfortable sofas, TV, including a variety of English news channels, excellent WiFi connection, fabulously comfortable beds and enormous showers with a strong and steady flow of soft water. While most Information about all aspects of the villa and its surrounds was clearly and comprehensibly provided in a book, Stefan and Esther were also very happy to supplement this with their extensive knowledge of the region. On their recommendation we enjoyed some excellent meals in nearby restaurants. We were very sorry when the time came to leave. Pancole had become a home away from home, where we could relax and enjoy the Chianti at our leisure and feel part of the scene. And this is just one of many reasons to return to this beautiful and unspoilt part of Italy.
Ein echtes Bijou
In dieses Bijou kommen wir gerne wieder hin.
Alles, wirklich alles sehr gut: Lage, Sauberkeit, Comfort, Pool, Multimedia. Sehr liebevolle und hilfsbereite Inhaber. So tun Ferien richtig gut.
Eine Familie die weiss, wie man La Cappella als Ausgangspunkt nutzt um alle Sehenswürdigkeiten zu besichtigen. Aber auch weiss, wie man einfach die Terrasse mit Pool, grossem Garten und der fantastischen Aussicht genissen kann. Well done. Bis bald!
Beautiful villa in an equally stunning countryside
This location was everything we expected for a wonderful 1 week stay to explore the area on bicycle. The villa was excellent - everything we needed was there and the pool was so refreshing. A big thank you to our hosts! Definitely recommend this property.
Dear André, thank you for your review. Our inclusive 'Welcome Basket' is one of the numerous services that we offer and we are glad that it is so popular. We love also to explore the Crete Senesi by bike. We offer 5 bikes for free. It is wonderful. Thank you again and we hope you'll return to our paradise soon.
Beautiful Villa - Truly Enjoyed our Stay
The pictures do not do the Villa justice! Our hosts were very accommodating, the villa was immaculate and we truly enjoyed our stay. Please note, you must have a car if you stay here as it is 10 minutes from the closest town Castelnuovo Berardenga. However, the only way to see Tuscany is by car. We also took the advise from the owners and hired Andrea for a fabulous "in Villa" cooking class and meal. We enjoyed Andrea so much we are going to set up an event while he is visiting the USA in 2018. We used the Villa as our home base and took daily "day" trips...even to Venice. We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to return one day.
Dear Fran, thank you for your review, we know that you made the most of your time with us and that you will have gone home with hopes of returning soon. As you have mentioned Arceno is beautifully situated to allow easy access to many other cities, towns and villages, for days out, nights out or even Venice. With our inclusive services we can help our guests make the best of the estate the local area and further afield. Again thank you.
Wunderschönes Haus mit traumhaften Panoramablick
Ende August verbrachten unsere Freunde eine fantastische Woche in dem Ferienhaus mit einer überwältigender Ruhe und toller Aussicht auf die toskanische Hügellandschaft.
Das sehr liebe- und geschmackvoll sowie praktisch eingerichtete Haus liegt in einem gepflegten Garten voller Olivenbäume, umsäumt von Weinbergen.
Die letzten 3 km Anfahrt auf den nicht asphaltierten Weg zum Haus, war auf Grund des fehlenden Asphaltes spannend und erhöhte unsere Erwartung.
Das Haus ist mit Naturstein gebaut und ist auch bei großer Hitze gut isoliert. Die zur Verfügung stehenden Deckenventilatoren sind ausreichend und fast geräuschlos.
Der neue Pool, bequeme und breite Betten, Fliegengitter, eine sehr gut ausgestattete Küche. Alle unsere Wünsche wurden erfüllt!
Der Willkommensgruß der Vermieter in der Küche war außergewöhnlich großzügig.
Von dem strategisch günstigen Ort kann man Ausflüge in die Regionen "Chianti" sowie "Crete senesi" unternehmen, sowie die vielen bekannten toskanischen Sehenswürdigkeiten innerhalb einer Stunde erreichen.
Das Ferienhaus kann uneingeschränkt empfohlen werden. Herzlichen Dank den Vermietern für die Gastfreundlichkeit und den freundlichen Kontakt.
Herzlichen Dank für diese umfangreiche und wertschätzende Rückmeldung. Ihr habt das Beste aus eurem Besuch herausgeholt. La Cappelle als Hot Spot genutzt, um alle Top-Sehenswürdigkeiten der Region zu besuchen und die wunderschöne Lage der Villa genutzt, um am Pool die Ruhe zu geniessen. Es freut uns, dass unser umfangreicher Willkommenskorb den Einstieg in die Ferien erleichtert. So kann gleich gekocht und der erste Toskana-Wein genossen werden. Würden uns sehr freuen, euch wieder als Gäste begrüssen zu dürfen.
