I had the opportunity and the pleasure to spend some days at La capanna di Sovestro this summer. It was the first time for me in San Gimignano. The accommodation is a wonderfully small farmhouse, recently restored by saving all the old traditional parts in stone and wood. The house lays down on a typical Tuscany hill and surrounded by...

We stayed in the self contained cottage at La Capanna di Sovestro, with a fully equipped kitchen, separate bathroom, large combined lounge/bedroom overlooking a lovely garden patio. It was a highlight of our stay in Italy and I really enjoyed the conversations with Damiano and his mum and dad (in Italian). Damiano speaks good English as well. His parents are... More

We stayed here for 5 days and could not have been happier with our choice.The apartment was awesome, large and comfortable. The beautiful old town is very close to the residence. Damiano and his parents were very welcoming. Thank you very much.

This place is in the countryside near San Gimignano surrounded by vineyards. The property has numerous flower and fruit bearing trees which we were encouraged to eat straight from the trees. And boy, those fruits are sweet!!! They even raise chickens and ducks in the back which are watched over by a brave dog named Leelo. It is run by... More

I stayed at La Capanna di Sovestro last November because of great reviews on this website and on Airbnb. The price seemed fair although I was a bit put off by the heater surcharge - feels as having decent heat should be included in the cost of the rental. We were originally supposed to stay there for four nights, but... More

Dear customer, I would not dwell too much with people, like you and your friend, who forced me to pay you back for no reason or you would have written the worst of the worst ... In Italy this offense where a person compels another to do or not to do something to benefit from it, it's called extortion. I... More

We had a wonderful time at La Capanna di Sovestro. The apartment was very comfortable and our hosts, Damiano and his lovely parents, were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The location was excellent and the terrace and garden beautiful. We hope to return one day. Thank you.

Overall great time at la campanna. The hosts are an old married Italian couple whom we loved. However when we booked through airbnb no one mentioned that's who would be taking care of us during our stay. Communicating was very difficult. We expected to see Damiano the person with the airbnb profile with whom we were communicating. Other than that... More

La Campanna di Sovestro is a perfect localization for tourists. We spent (2couples) there amazing time. Family Solvestro is very helpful and friendly - their advices what to visit in Tuscany were invalueable. Rooms were clean, beautiful and contained everything what is needed.
