The Capanna Leopoldina, dating back to the first half of the 18th century as marked on the first Tuscan land register, has been completely restored and now offers 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, while maintaining its typical Tuscan style with wood beamed ceilings and terracotta floors that are so typical for the old barns in the Chianti region. The house is part of a farm comprising 2 other apartments and the owners house.
The Capanna Leopoldina is a beautiful and independent country house from whose panoramic terrace it's possible to admire the beautiful Hills of the Chianti region.
