IL CAPRICCIO in the hamlet village of Celle dei Puccini. Tuscany as it was & is

Located in: Pescaglia »
New for 2019 - Il Capriccio can be 2 or 4 bedrooms - Through 2 interconnecting doors in the living room, we have added 2 further bedrooms - one double and one single with a separate shower room. Please contact us for details on cost for the 4 bedrooms

Entrance is through the kitchen from a terrace where there is a table and chairs and a gas BBQ for al fresco dining. The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, gas hob, elec oven, a drinks fridge with a further fridge freezer. Stairs leading up to bedrooms & living room. Original terracotta floors & high ceilings with chestnut beams, maintaining traditional charm.
From the kitchen a spiral staircase leads down to a utility room with washing machine, tumble drier. Large living room is on the 1st floor taking advantage of the magnificent views from 3 windows overlooking the the valley & roof tops of the village. Comfortable leather sofas. Wifi, TV & DVD player. The thick walls & high ceilings keep the rooms cool in summer. 1 double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom & the twin/double bedroom has a separate shower room with WC. There is an extra single bed in living room (which is on same level as bedrooms) for an extra person. All rooms are comfortable & to high spec. The en-suite bathroom has a bidet & bath, with shower attachment. The separate shower room has a shower cubicle, basin & WC. Both rooms have attractive tiled floors & walls with traditional chestnut beamed ceilings.

We purchased the building in an almost ruined state in 1999 after many years of it being uninhabited. It has been lovingly restored by local craftsmen to include all the modern day appliances while maintaining the traditional Tuscan charm. There is a fascinating mixture of high ceilings, original floors, chestnut beams, stone fireplaces and terracotta floors.

With a heated swimming pool set in the extensive grounds, commanding an unbroken and breathtaking views of the hills, makes a perfect place to relax.

Each of our properties has a detailed information pack that we have put together for our guests, showing places of interest, activities for all ages and we hope it will give our guests an idea of how to enjoy the Province of Tuscany to the full. To name but a few that you may wish to search on Google, Vinci, the home of Leonardo where there is an interesting museum for both children & adults showing models of his inventions. The monastry built 'in' the rock in Calomini (Eremo di Calomini) by the monks in the 7th century. Grotta del Vento, an under ground world of galleries & chambers. Parco Avventura, offers a challenge for children, youths & adults who can test their ability with suspension bridges, swinging beams, vertical nets, ropes etc. (trainers & long trousers essential) Many fabulous places for walkers, San Pellegrino to name but a few.

Shops: With only 32 people living in Celle, there is not enough business to warrant shops.
Only 10 mins drive down the hill is Diecimo. There is a row of small shops run by the locals, including a bank, Post office, 2 petrol stations, chemist, a baker who bakes on the premises. There are 2 cafes, where you can stop & have coffee & delicious cakes freshly filled rolls. A further 5 min. drive to Borgo Mozzano, there is a supermarket & large deli. An ideal shop to start your holiday shopping. There is another, larger supermarket (Esselunga) in Marlia which is in the direction of Lucca. Many great restaurants within 8-10mins drive from Celle & one in the village itself serving fresh homemade traditional Tuscan food, made with local produce & local wines.

The nearest Train Station is in Diecimo, about 10 mins drive from Celle. You will need to change at Lucca for Florence or Pisa. Free parking at Diecimo Station

Climate: In the Spring (April/May) & Autumn (mid Sept - mid Oct) the temperatures are at their most comfortable & pleasant. July/Aug are usually hot & temperatures tend to stay around 30 - 35 degrees. Off peak holidays also have their attraction: May/June are wonderful months to visit, when the air smells of honey & the wild flowers are abundant. This is an excellent time for walking with many walks in and around Celle.

Sept & Oct are interesting months when the grapes are picked and the wine is made. October is when the fabulous porcini mushrooms appear & the locals go hunting in secret to find them in the forests. Restaurant menus change to include delicious dishes using these precious mushrooms, precious because the season is so short. It is also the season for zucca (pumpkin) and there are zucca festivals in nearby villages where you can buy locally made produce. October is also a time for collecting & roasting chestnuts.


During the high season our bookings are usually 'back to back' and we are not able to be flexible with our Saturday changeover day. For those families who wish to arrive a day early or stay a day longer, there is a very good and very reasonably priced local hotel in Borgo Mozzano. (Hotel Milano) Their charges include breakfast and they have family rooms for up to 5 people. They also have a restaurant. If you wish to consider this option, please do not hesitate to contact us, or if you wish, contact them direct. They do have english speaking staff available.

For folk arriving late in the evening, we can arrange for some breakfast items so that you can enjoy your first morning without having to hurry out to shop!
