“Heaven in Tuscany”
Reviewed November 10, 2010

This place is a beautiful gem amid peaceful rolling hills. Allessandro greeted us and handled our requests and showed us around the property. We met Giuseppe, the owner who hung out with all the guests who could speak Italian, and his son Ricardo gave the tour of the winery, which was delightful, ending with a tasting of the wines and olive oil produced on the nearby property. It was harvest time for the grapes so it was especially interesting. There is a full course dinner prepared each evening for the guests which we found to be excellent. Everyone was so attentive to our needs, and the wines were heavenly! I would like to return someday....

We are going again in 2010 for our seventh visit. Just so relaxing with lovely owners, great staff and nice guests. You meet the same people year after year and we have made some good friends that we meet there as well as in the UK. The owners are removing the kitchens from the apartments but upgrading the fittings. Not sure how that will work out as you will be forced to eat at the restaurant (limited choice and not cheap) or go out for breakfast and lunch. Evening meals are superb but no choice you either like the menu or make other arrangements. A bit of a professional ghetto- lots of lawyers, doctors,dentists and the occasional actor. If you want a really relaxing time with great food and wine then look no further.

La Sovana is simply wonderful. It pretty much fits the profile of the ideal Tuscan-Umbrian holiday, with the beautiful apartments set in old stone buildings, restaurant overlooking the swimming pool with both overlooking the sunset, gorgeous grounds maintained to prefection, with cypress trees, sunflowers, lavender, etc.

The owner, Giuseppe, is the typical genial Italian host who has the ability of making you feel like a personally invited guest rather than a customer.

When we arrived on a Saturday we found a bottle of the glorious local wine, Vino Nobile, waiting for us (it retails for about £10 in the UK) and were immediately invited to a "meet and greet" drinks reception where we were supplied with the local dry sparkling wine, Prosecco.

A walk around the grounds is also recommended -- glorious views from everywhere, everything maintained to perfection.

Even the location is perfect for exploring Italy -- La Sovana is situated on the Tuscany-Umbria border and is also a few miles off the Rome-Florence Autostrada, so you can explore the delights of Tuscany (Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, etc) while also be handily placed for the quieter gems of Umbria (Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto, Todi).

We didnt go to Rome but I think it is about two hours by car or you can drive to one of the stations to get the train -- the mainline is, like the Autostrada, only about 8 miles or so away (ideal for convenience but completely out of earshot!)

I have never gone back to the same hotel or apartment/villa before but wil be making the exception at La Sovana. It is pure bliss!
