Client reviews Return to property description

First off, I would like to say thank you, thank you, thank you for such great service. My interaction with you and "Gira" as a whole was easy, smooth, and very helpful throughout the entire process. You provided timely and accurate information and went above and beyond with useful tips for a newbie traveler like myself. Your communication between the establishment, Sosta del Duca-Capanna di Sopra, on my behalf whenever questions popped up was instant and greatly appreciated. Secondly, as a whole the group of us (6 adults) had a wonderful time at Sosta del Duca-Capanna di Sopra! * the staff was amazing and made us feel right at home. As soon as we exited our cars in the parking lot we were greeted by Ricardo who helped us with our bags and who directed us to check-in with Simona. * Simona and Nicola were always available to answer our questions and provide suggestions for our outings (from best routes to travel to parking and where to find the best food and shopping) * The accommodations were everything we imagined and more! Whichever direction you looked, the views around the villa were spectacular Italian countryside. * The pool was a favorite relaxing spot of mine. * The dinners provided on property were amazing. The food was home cooked Italian fare and the entire experience from appetizer to dessert (and lots of delicious wine in between) was a once in a life-time experience. * Simona, Nicola, Riccardo and all their staff took pride in their property and could been seen at all times of the day working hard keeping the grounds and property up to perfection. * The atmosphere was relaxing and also entertaining with the ability to mix with those families and individuals staying in the main lodging area over dinners and time at the pool, while we could break away for privacy in our own little villa whenever we chose. * The cooking class was a fun experience that we recommend to anyone staying on the property. The property chef was so engaging and enjoyed teaching the group making it both a fun and delicious time! * The close location to San Gimignano was perfect placement for our group for an afternoon of site seeing and also great dinning options on nights we did not feel like cooking in at the villa. * The villa itself was perfect size and accommodations for the 6 adults. We enjoyed the use of the kitchen when warranted, the blast of the cool air conditioning (much needed in early Aug.), and the privacy allotted from the rest of the property. I could go on and on, but in conclusion we had a wonderful time at Sosta del Duca-Capanna di Sopra and would recommend it to everyone. Thank you again for your expertise and professional attention to all our traveling needs throughout the process of getting us to Italy! C.S. August 2015

We had the time of our lives! I fell in love with Il Borghetto and Sandra and Nickola and Simona and Ricardo! I loved our cottage, Capanna di Sopra, it was our little piece of heaven while we were there. We did many day trips that we all thoroughly enjoyed. Our only regret was that we had not booked for two weeks instead of one. We did not aniticipate falling in love with these people and their Villa and would have cherished more time just at the Villa to take it all in. I was drawn in by the history of the Villa and the owners affection and commitment to this beautiful place. I have to say it was the owners that made the difference with their personal hands on touch of heart and soul to make this the excellent vacation it was. I can't wait to go back! L.H. July 2014

We had an amazing trip and absolutely loved Capanna di Sopra. This was one of the best trips we have ever taken, and it on our list to do again. Simona and Sandra were the most wonderful hosts. The highlights for us were the dinners at the villa and the Tuscan cooking class. I have made the menu often since returning home...still working on the gnochhi, but the rest of it comes out great!! The pool was lovely and a welcome respite at the end of some long days sightseeing in nearby towns. We made some great new friends and look forward to returning. It was a pleasure working with you and thank you for helping make our vacation truly wonderful! K.M. August 2012

I can honestly say our experience was even better than we could have imagined. We had a wonderful and beautiful time. Our hosts were very helpful, and we thought our "villa" was perfect. We had just the right mixture of privacy with our family, but we all had the opportunity to meet others. We had a great time meeting families from other countries at the pool, and eating leisurely dinners over the Tuscan hills. We used Il Borgheto as our base and had the chance to go to Florence, Siena, Pisa and nearby San Gimignano( yes, one of our favorites.) I would recommend this to anyone... The only thing that didn't make this a full 5 stars was the need to pay for the pool towels, and extra towels...However, your recommendations were right on and we would absolutely work through you again. Thanks, E. G. July 2010
