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.

Hi! great view from the terrace, though not the city, but on the field, beautiful. silence. Beautiful room! Senor Bruno simply wonderful. We walked to the city and the surrounding area is beautiful, the real province, nothing made specially for tourists. San Gimignano and nearby farm - the most beautiful recollection of Italy . the city is full of tourists... More

We are a couple and We want to share our beautiful experience in this fantastic place. You can wake up with a breathtaking panorama, in the Middle of San Gimignano's hills. A fantastic breakfast waits you when you'll wake up, with croissant, marmellate, yogurt s, fruits juice, and a top cappuccino. The apartment was clean and tidy, and we didn't... More

I was excited to stay at the Cappanna di Sovestro based on the highly positive reviews and ratings. This was a mistake because the 5 circle rating is far from deserved. Based on Damiano's suggestion we booked the apartment for 3 - my husband & me and our friend. We were charged 100 euro per night including breakfast. What we... More

Thanks Damiano and especially his father Bruno for a wonderful stay in San Gimignano! We couldn't have asked for better hosts. They were very accommodating and helpful, and went above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable. From start to finish, it was a great experience. Damiano's father told us everything about San Gimingnano's history and also recommended nice restaurants... More

The lady at the tourist information center in San Gimiano smiled when we asked for a room for three nights and asked us if we would consider a Guest-house. When we arrived we understood what her smile meant. Toto! This isn't Kansas! (Actually it isn't anywhere that I had been before). A dreamlike property overlooking the Tuscany countryside. The best...
