    Tuscany all year round: events not to be missed during your stay with us

    There are numerous recurring events, sometimes world-famous, which take place every year in Tuscany. Often behind these events lies a long historical tradition, which has its roots centuries ago. Just think of the Palio di Siena, the most important event in the city of Siena, which has taken place twice a year since the 6th century.
    A long tradition accompanies all the celebrations organized in every city, from the largest to the smallest village, on the occasion of the patron saint's day. At any time of year, you will most likely find an event or party to take part in while staying with us.

CARNEVALE DI VIAREGGIO

CARNIVAL OF VIAREGGIO - FEBRUARY

During the weeks preceding Ash Wednesday, Carnival parties and parades are organized in various cities in Tuscany, before the period of Lent. One of the most famous carnivals in Italy takes place in Viareggio, with a parade of large allegorical papier-mâché floats, fireworks and masks along the city's seafront promenade. 
FESTIVAL MERCANTIA

MERCANTIA FESTIVAL - July

In Certaldo Alto

Mercantia, the largest Italian theater festival.
With shows of dance, music, juggling, acrobatics, circus performances, installations and crafts. Mercantia is amazement, magic, imagination. All in a unique context: in the streets and squares, in the gardens and crypts of the medieval village of Certaldo. At just 19 km from us.

LUMINARA DI PISA - GIUGNO

LUMINARA IN PISA - JUNE

June is important for Pisa, and all events are part of its "Pisan June". On the night of June 16th the Luminara begins the celebrations in honor of San Ranieri, the patron saint of Pisa, which is celebrated the following day, June 17th. More than 70,000 candles illuminate the buildings on the banks of the Arno and, late at night, you can admire the beautiful fireworks display.

To celebrate the patron saint of Pisa, four boats representing the oldest city districts compete in the San Ranieri Regatta on the waters of the Arno, in honor of Pisa's glorious past as a maritime republic.
PALIO DI SIENA

Palio di Siena - July & August

The Palio horse race is a colorful, bareback horse race round the dirt-packed Piazza del Campo, Siena's main square, that takes place every July 2 and August 16. The contrade (traditional neighborhoods) compete for the palio, or banner, dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The square is filled with costumed pageantry before the race, and massive feasts are set up on long outdoor tables that can stretch for blocks on the medieval side streets.
Something about us
  • When my husband and I planned a trip to Tuscany, we weren't exactly expecting a relaxing vacation. After all, our toddler was coming too.

    We boarded our flight from Calgary to Rome with eyes wide open (literally, we have not slept in days), with little anticipation of any chance to truly unwind. However, we had not reckoned on the soothing power of our destination, Villa La Cappella, a place that enfolds you in the comforting hug of a nonna who then proceeds to stuff you with heaping bowl after heaping bowl of delectable homemade pasta....

  • We arrived at Villa La Cappella on the 12th day of our 20 day adventure in Italy. We came after 4 very busy days to this peaceful, joyful villa.  We were mesmerized, the beauty of the birds' songs, the aroma from the kitchen of delicious food and the views that left us breathless.  Somehow we had been transported to a dream!! We felt both privileged to be here and at home here, embraced by the magic of the villa & its people. Elenor Roosevelt once said, "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." Paola & Marissa, I'm so thrilled for you both, I can see that you are dreaming big everyday.   Canada

And the host, Paola with her daughter are so kind, so friendly, so attentive.  Giovanna the cook is a real "Master of Cooking".  Everything was so delicious. Thank you for everything. We'll come back!   - Germany -
    A place next to paradise
  • The first thing you need to do when you arrive at the steps of Villa La Cappella is take a deep breath and know you are going to experience a stay full of beauty, tranquility and tradition. You instantly feel a part of the family, the rooms each have a unique charm, and their chef is an absolute delight, concocting delicious meal after delicious meal steeped in the local flavours.

    The villa is nestled in an unbelievably gorgeous part of Tuscany, with rolling hills and ancient castles and vineyards galore. The serenity of morning cappuccino on the rear patio with the birds and wildlife awakening and the views of hot air balloons in the distance is something I will never forget.

    Cheers to Paola and family for this incredible venture and cannot wait to see you all again!  Sandra
