He is EVERYWHERE. The mother is the Chef, the grandmother (and grandfather... More

Fully agree with recent reviews by Markhoni and Jean B. The hotel is a short 20 min walk via a back road to San Gimingnano.

Thank you Hotel Sovestro for another wonderful stay. The pool is immaculately clean and a pleasure to swim in. The small pool is also good for cooling off when the bigger pool is more full in the afternoons; it's great to have two venues for relaxation.
