You can observe the rest of a medieval stonewall where wild capers grow. And sometimes you can take part in a wedding ceremony in the small old church. The houses are normally used by the owners and are only rented sometimes. This means privacy. Situated away from the mainstreet, tranquility and peace are guaranteed.

Pretty and quiet
Our stay was lovely, the house is perfect and very relaxing and comfortable. It was nicely decorated and suited us very well. Bettina who met us was helpful and stayed in touch if we needed anything.
There was a stunning view at every turn. Picture postcard beautiful.
The only downsides were a very rough track to get to the house and lots of flies and wasps around the pool area.
Overall it was lovely.
Beautiful property and excellent cottage!
My husband and I stayed here for a week when we first became engaged in 2011. The location and views are spectacular! We enjoyed relaxing outside eating breakfast before heading out to explore some of the local towns. In the evenings the quiet beauty of the property cleanses the soul, as you sip on wine and watch the sunset. I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a relaxing, authentic Tuscan experience while still being close to some adventurous days out exploring.
Wonderful, relaxing, peaceful, an echo of the past
If you want to get away from the stresses of life then this property and location is definitely for you. Words cannot adequately describe it and the photos don't exude the atmosphere, it has to be experienced to be believed. Don't be put off by the white road because the views are truly forever. The description on the website is accurate, it was clean and we had an amazing 3 weeks there. This allowed us time to explore the area where a good map is essential.(Touring Editore of Chianti map is great, available from bookshops and Tabacchi) Siena, Arezzo, Pienza, and Montepulciano were favourites but a morning coffee in Monte San Savino was a treat especially on Wednesday for the small market. A must is a visit to the leather shop in Ambra and then just savour the atmosphere of Sogna where you feel like the world has passed you by. The pool is very clean and refreshing after a day out and it is well worth taking tennis racquets as the court is excellent even if, like us, you are not serious players. If you do need the outside world then the wifi connection was excellent whilst we were there. One tip buy bug spray because you will get bitten in summer but it's a minor issue.
Dear K Family,
thank you so much for your overwhelming and nice evaluation of your stay in Tuscany and our property.
This is the biggest compliment you ever could make to me !
I'm very happy that you enjoyed your long stay in our apartment, please recommend our house to your friends and family. I do really very much hope, that you once have the opportunity to return to S.
Warm regards and all the best for all of you
geschmackvolle Wohnung in wunderschönem altem Borgo - Erholung pur
Wir haben die ersten beiden Augustwochen mit 2 Erwachsenen und 2 Kindern in Sogna verbracht und es sehr genossen. Die Temperaturen von über 40 Grad haben unseren Entdeckerdrang in der Toskana stark eingeschränkt aber dank der Lage des Hauses und der Bauweise konnten wir trotz der Hitze nachts gut schlafen. Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, die Küche allerdings für passionierte Selbstversorger etwas zu rudimentär ausgestattet - wir konnten uns aber immer gut behelfen. Der Pool ist toll, der Borgo ganz wundervoll, den Tennisplatz konnten wir wegen der Hitze leider kaum nutzen. Die Feigen vom Baum waren köstlich und der Besuch des kleinen Fuchses im Garten war ein Highlight.
Wer Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit mag, ist hier genau richtig. Und der tolle Brötchenbring-Service von Luca hat uns den täglichen Weg vom Berg ins Dorf vor dem Frühstück erspart!
The nearest town is Ambra, four kilometers down in the valley, with a restaurant, grocery store, laundry, and bank. The fabled medieval cities of Tuscany and Umbria are only a little further afield. The splendors of Siena (32 kilometers), Arezzo (35 kilometers) and Florence (65 kilometers) are easily accessible. A little further are Gubbio, Assisi, and San Gimignano. The Tuscan cuisine and wines-Chianti, Motepulicano, and Brunello-are here at their authentic best. Just thirty-five minutes away, slightly south of Florence, is The Mall, a huge complex of luxury outlet shops where the best of Italian fashion and style are temptingly available.
Other Activities: Swimming, Tennis court (in the borgo), Riding stable (6km), Hiking, Mountain biking.
