Description from owner

Sogna Amore is our romantic one bedroom stone built hideaway located high up in the Tuscan Hills. It is ideal for honeymooners and romantics of all ages. A perfect oasis of peace and tranquility with the additional benefit of being less than an hour’s drive from all the main cultural centers of Tuscany. This "love nest", originally built in the 15th Century, is beautifully furnished and decorated with an emphasis on design, comfort and luxury. Sogna Amore has been authentically restored to reveal its original chestnut beams, terracotta tile ceilings and floors, pietra serena stone kitchen sink and worktops, and luminous calce plaster wall finishes. A special feature in the bedroom is the exposed ancient stone boulder forming the rear wall. This feature has been painstakingly uncovered and is prominently displayed behind plate glass evoking a feeling of drama and contemporary style. The house is furnished in a mix of modern and antique furnishings and artwork.

Entirely private, the 11th century medieval hamlet of Sogna consists of 12 unique homes with a shared pool and tennis court. Perched high atop a hillside, surrounded by terraces with over 700 olive trees, numerous fruit trees and ancient woodlands, sits this stunning medieval borgo. The village itself is beautifully restored maintaining all of it's original features, with a church and bell tower, a village green, the remains of the original fortressed walls and cobbled lanes that lead through the village between the stone houses. With panoramic views of the Valdambra, Sogna offers our guests the chance to relax, sunbathe, swim in the oasis shaped pool, play a game of tennis, eat al fresco under the private jasmine covered pergola or do nothing at all! In season, figs, apricots, plums and grapes grow throughout the borgo and there are few pleasures greater than eating a freshly picked, sun warmed fruit with your morning coffee.

About the area

If you can tear yourself away from the beauty of our medieval borgo, Sogna makes a perfect base for exploring Tuscany. It is just a 30 minute drive to the centers of Siena and Arezzo and an hours drive to Florence. The classic Tuscan hill towns of Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, are all within a short drive and Chianti's famous villages of Castellina, Greve, Gaiole, Radda are just on our doorstep. Closer to home, you can take a leisurely stroll to Rapale, the next village in the chain of hilltop borgos or discover the beauty of the Valdarno and particularly the Valdambra where the magical medieval towns of Badia a Ruoti, Cennia, Ambra and Bucine, cling to their hilltop perches evoking a sense of timelessness. When you tire of the natural and historic beauty of Tuscany and find yourself in need of a little "retail therapy"; a quick 25 minute drive will take you to the anonymous grey warehouse called Space, which is the outlet store for Prada, Jill Sander, Mui Mui, and Helmut Lang. A further 15 minute drive brings you to "The Mall", a huge complex of outlet shops where you can find labels such as Alexander McQueen, Agnona, AJ Armani, Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Burberry, Emanuel Ungaro, Ermenegildo Zenga, Fendi, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Hogan, I Pinco Pallino, La Perla, Loro Piana, Marni, Pucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Sergio Rossi, Stella McCartney, Tod’s, Valentino, Yohji Yamamoto and Yves St. Laurent. There is also a Miss Sixty and Diesel outlet at The Mall as well as a stylish café that serves salads, sandwiches and fantastic coffee. Down the road from The Mall you will find the Fendi, Celine, Loewe and the Dolce and Gabbanna outlet shops.

“A Heavenly Hideaway in Tuscany”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2016

Whatever your reasons for a holiday Sogna Amore will not disappoint you in any way. It is immediately stylish, welcoming, well equipped and comfortable. A great base for visiting the outstanding sites of Tuscany. Florence, Siena, Arezzo, San Giminiano, Cortona and Volterra are all within a delightful and easy drive. Alternatively the Borgo itself is such a beautiful place to relax by the pool, walk, read, or play tennis in peace and tranquility. With great restaurants nearby and in the night stars and fireflies will keep you company. Thank you so much for sharing the magical delights of your very personal piece of heaven

Owner's reply: Hi Joanna, Thank you for your very kind words I am thrilled that you had a lovely week at Sogna Amore! We look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future. All the best Minda
