Villa Sovrano is a stunning home clad in original Tuscan stone, set on a hilltop, amid elegant gardens and dramatic panoramas of the surrounding countryside.

With 9 bedrooms showcasing stylish interiors blending artisanal flavour with a meticulously restored aesthetic, 14 guests can be accommodated in the most graciously finished surroundings. Upon arriving at this sophisticated yet authentic villa, guests would be forgiven for thinking they had stepped into the pages of a travel magazine.

Finessed with exquisite attention to detail, Villa Sovrano offers a host of extras; the details that make a place special, such as wandering to your own vegetable garden to pick ingredients for lunch, to a sumptuous chef-prepared dinner (from the Michelin-starred restaurant down the road), to concierge services, elegant outdoor living and private wellness space inside.

This immaculate home sits in pristinely manicured gardens, fragrant with herbs, wildflowers and lavender. Imagine sitting down for a meal in the balmy evening air with the fragrance of roses from the pretty trellis, or fresh coffee on the sedate stone balcony as the Tuscan hills come to life.

This Tuscan farmhouse makes holidaying look so chic: stepping inside, guests will stop to draw breathe at the sight of this dignified and elegant home. It blends refinement with understated luxe with creamy neutral tones, natural stone and pale timbers, airy proportions and unfussy design. Unpretentious, yet polished Villa Sovrano is executed with ease and seamless living in mind.

Original touches such as the exposed timber ceilings and stone fireplaces jostle with contemporary touches, huge windows, a minimalist Scandi touch and dazzling whites with neutrals for an upbeat, sunny and light-filled effect.

Large groups or families will enjoy plenty of space to spread out and the decadence of an indoor pool and wellness space complete with a sauna for indulging in some relaxation after a busy day. Whether you’re searching for private moments to enjoy the striking views, or lively group meals with the local wines flowing - this home has it all covered.

The bedrooms are serene retreats, with quality linens, generous proportions and timeless design choices. The free-standing bath has a very advertorial quality to it - while contemporary poster art, photography and slate tones in the kitchen-dining spaces add a sultry note of sophistication.

Nestled in a rustic setting, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, Villa Sovrano boasts views of the Val d'Orcia which inspired so many Renaissance painters, dotted with little villages, castles and churches - it’s a place that feels like time has stood still. This region is famed for its Etruscan and Medieval villages, churches and monuments, traditional way of live and local cheeses and pastas, offering a taste of authentic Tuscany. 

Both Siena and Arezzo are worth a day trip, while the hot springs of San Casciano dei Bagni are just down the road surrounded by chestnut forests and sublime Tuscan landscapes reminiscent of a Renaissance painting.

Villa Sovrano is nestled an hour and a half south-east of Sienna and an hour south of Montepulciano in a lesser-trodden part of southern Tuscany. Enjoy a genuine rural experience complete with views of the Val d’Orcia with cows and goats occasionally wandering around in front of the front gate!

The hilltop town of Montepulciano is famous for its wine and is brimming with character and culture. Explore the medieval streets, renaissance piazzas and  ancient churches and admire the views of the surrounding valley. Arezzo is another hilltop town an hour and a twenty minutes north of Villa Sovrano, featuring fortresses, cathedrals and museums.

The region is surrounded by reminders of Italy’s Etruscan heritage. Close to both the historical village of Celle sul Rigo and the thermal baths of San Casciagno Dei Bagni. Celle sul Rigo is a small place brimming with medieval charm, an original defence tower and its own locally-made (“pici”) pasta.

The thermal spa and hot springs of San Casciano dei Bagni are a wonderful place to soak after hiking or sight-seeing. This magical spot is nestled in a thick wood of chestnuts and ancient pines. The "Bagno Grande" (great bath) which dates back to the 1400s is easily reachable by foot from the main square of San Casciano. The town also boats a smattering of excellent restaurant.

Siena is worth a day trip and the nearby Maremma region boasts stunning countryside for hiking and biking. The ancient city of Chiusi has a charming historical centre while the graceful, Renaissance hilltop town of Montepulciano is an exquisitely romantic town, famous for its wine.

The historical Pienza is a stunning spot known for its cacio (cheese) - the pecorino of Pienza is made from sheep's milk and enjoyed worldwide. For nature lovers, the Pietraporciana Nature reserve is a green oasis between Sarteano and Chianciano known for its striking beech trees and wildlife

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Babies & Toddlers Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Sovrano is a stunning choice for a family holiday in Tuscany, with proximity to the region’s finest towns and villages.

From riding to cycling, to cooking classes to museum trips to underground tunnels, there is so much in Tuscany for children. Young historians will enjoy trails along with sunken Etruscan roads, and the underground tunnels at Chiusi.

Keen equestrians can enjoy the ‘maneggi’ and ‘centri ippici’ that can organize a half or full-day horseback ride that includes introductory lessons for little ones and beginners.

A treetop walk at the Saltalbero Parco Aventura is a novel way to enjoy the region, swinging at a great height followed by a picnic on the grassy lawns. Siena is an hour and a half away and one of the famous Palio festivals will leave youngsters with lasting memories, while the central Piazza (Il Campo) is a bustling melting pot of craft stalls and family-friendly dining.
