Very nice room, quiet location and a beautiful stroll towards San Gimignano through the Tuscan vineyards. The owners were so nice, they really went out of their way to accommodate me and make sure I was comfortable.

This guesthouse was in the middle of the most beautiful Tuscany. My mom and I were very happy to stay there and discover the wonders of the vineyards around in the morning. Damiano and his father were very friendly and helpful, and the mama's torta very tasty! Thank you!

At arrival we had a free parkingspace and were greated by Bruno and his wife (Damiano's parents). We were shown to our little guesthouse next to the family's home. It is big enough for two people to stay comfortably. Bathroom spacious and has everything you need from plenty of towels to soaps. There's a little patio surounded by trees, loads... More

The room and bathroom have all the necessary for you to feel very confortable. The house is within walking distance (20 min) from San Gimignano, one of the most... More

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
