The
Experience

A stone’s throw from Tavarnelle, down a country lane, this ancient farmhouse stands among vineyards, olives, cypresses and pines. Though the setting is secluded you are in the middle of some of the most popular touring country in Italy; on a clear day, you can see the towers of San Gimignano. Every view is breathtaking. Sovigliano has been renovated by the family with deep respect for the architecture and traditional materials. The self-catering apartments – one palatial, with a glorious stone fireplace – are most attractive, all white walls, ancient rafters, good beds and country antiques. If you choose to go B&B, the double rooms are equally charming. The big rustic kitchen, with a private fridge for each guest, makes it easy to meet others should you wish to do so, or a delicious dinner can be arranged. Breakfast under the pines in the garden, take a lazy dip in the pool, work out in the exercise area (children must be supervised), enjoy a pre-dinner drink. Vin Santo, olive oil and grappa are for sale. Signora is most helpful and will insist you return!

Reviews

Sovigliano is set in it's own secluded and peaceful grounds. The buildings and grounds are beautifully maintained and ooze Tuscan charm. Patrizia and Claudia made us feel very welcome and relaxed with their friendly hospitality and a desire to ensure we had everything we needed. The view from the rear terrace cannot be described - some things in life need to be experienced to appreciate them. Sweeping Tuscan hills covered in vineyards and olive groves with the odd country house dotted here and there - sublime! A fantastic place to relax and visit nearby Florence, Siena, San Gimignano...

Local points of interest from Patrizia Bicego

  • Sovigliano is settled in a quiet place but at the same time in a very good location for sightseeing. The surrounding view is amazing.
  • The village of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa is easily reachable also walking and there you find all the facilities.
  • Eat and drink well is a must for us and it has surely a big part in your travel experience that's the reason why we are always happy to suggest you the local markets, the more characteristic osterias, a romantic restaurants for a special occasion etc.
  • The largest telescope in Tuscany is 15 minutes from Sovigliano. The Chianti Observatory is a region's excellence. In addition to the observation of the sky, it's possible to hear the sound emanated from the planets. Can you imagine it?
  • Many are the activities you can do starting from Sovigliano, surely all interesting and various; we suggest photography workshop, truffle hunting or pottery course. Some of them are also for kids.
