We visited this property in June and were in for quite a surprise! The host is fabulous and took us through the property, showed us where we were on the land and gave us many handouts for places to eat, shop and see. The home is very comfortable and looks just like the pictures. The kitchen is incredible and just...

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...

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....

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...

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!

“Try to get the downstairs room which is larger, has an exit directly to the patio and a kitchen (for a small increase in price), The room upstairs is much smaller and is usually offered as a breakfast room (for the guests downstairs), when it is not occupied.”
