10/10 Exceptional

The property has been renovated recently, with modern fixtures and the shower is powerful, which I really appreciate. Our triple room is spacious and has a patio which is nice. I also appreciate that bedroom slippers were provided. So rare for a countryside hotel. This is a gem. Breakfast was very good, with pies and tarts homemade by the owners. There is a lovely spacious terrace to enjoy the views and fresh air with a view of Italian cypress trees. There is a path at the back of the property which one can track up to the town of San Gimignano. An easy track of about 30 min to the town. We really enjoyed our stay here and would return again.

8/10 Very good

The Sovestro hotel is some 1,5 Km from San Gimignano city center that can be reached by car in just a couple of minutes by. The room was large, clean, and quiet. It had air conditioning, flat screen TV, fridge and bathroom with shower. There is an outdoor pool, a gym and a restaurant. The parking is within the property. The surroundings are very beautiful typical Tuscan countryside.

Beautiful Hotel at the bottom of San Gimignano
It’s a beautiful nice family run hotel with great service. Went with family and everyone enjoyed the stay. It’s also walking distance to San Gimignano and a great beautiful walk. Entrance lined with Cedar trees is just beautiful. Restaurant is Michelin’s recommendations but my expectation was much higher. Overall a great experience at the hotel. Love it!

We loved this hotel, especially the friendly and helpful staff. Laura and the young server in the dining room and restaurant were most attentive. The breakfasts were substantial and well laid out with excellent variety, including fresh eggs, made to order. My only wish would have been for a room that didn’t face the road, as the scenery would have been lovely to enjoy withou the sound of traffic. However, the room was quiet with the doors closed. The shuttle to town was great, and the walk back on a dirt road was quite pretty.

The whole experience was fantastic. All the staff are amazing. The rooms were spacious and clean. The shower was really good. The back of the hotel by the 2nd pool could use a bit of TLC but it really is a minor thing.
