The wifi didn't work. The AC didn't work. My girlfriend -a native Italian speaker- was disrespected in a way I have never seen in my life, both in person and online. First she was told that if she wanted to use the wifi she should have gone to a 5 star hotel, then she was told that she was bringing... More

Dear Mr. American, I don't spend any words to contradict you, NOT worth it! TripAdvisor has lately become less true and allows anyone to defame a tourism company, as you and your partner. What is most interesting is that : you and your companion in misfortune, with your defamatory reviews, are just over 1% of all my comments on TripAdvisor.... More

They do their best to enjoy your stay in La Capanna di Sovestro. Fantastic homemade breakfast, useful tips (places to visit, parking places, restaurants, local manufacturers to... More

My wife and I stayed at La Capanna di Sovestro in the upper room. The place was a little hard to find initially. It's just down the street from the "Hotel Sovestro" and we made the mistake of going there first. We were welcomed by a nice lady who spoke no English (which is fine, we are in Italy after... More

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

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
