Luxury rental cottage in Tuscany - Sovrana is located in a picturesque setting deep in the Chianti countryside of Tuscany, mid-way between Florence and Siena. This stone-built, character building was once a chapel but is now a carefully restored cottage, ideal for a small family holiday.

Set over two floors with its own private garden and patio area, it is located on an immaculately maintained estate where there are several apartments and a larger villa also represented by Quality Villas.
Sovrana is air-conditioned and elegantly furnished, with neutral colours, wooden flooring and antique pieces.  There is a large communal pool and within a mile or so of the estate there are tennis courts, horse riding stables, restaurants and banks. 
The closest shops, a couple of restaurants and a little market are to be found a short drive away in the pretty medieval village of San Donato, while nearby Barberino Val d'Elsa is another attractive and well-preserved medieval hilltop village, with a handful of restaurants & pizzerie, as well as a bakery and little grocery.

The estate staff are on hand for any number of extra services that may be required, including booking museum and event tickets, offering airport transfers, cooking lessons, chef services to name but a few.

Insider Tips

“This is simple and comfortable accommodation in the very heart of Italy. You have your own patio and garden area by your own private house, set in the midst of well-maintained communal gardens. The communal pool is carefully situated so that it is very easy to stroll across the lawns to, yet not close enough to intrude. A great place to stay if you want to be within easy driving distance of some of Italy's most famous towns and cities.”
