About This Listing
According to the Huffington Post, Sorano is the fifth of the 10 most beautiful villages in Italy. You will feel at home and I'll be happy to share with you all I know about this amazing and very quiet place.
A romantic flat with astonishing view, perfect for those who love the medieval atmosphere and the uncontaminated nature. Thesan's (the etruscan godess of dawn) house is into the middle of the east quarter of Sorano. Located in the pedestrian area but not far from a parking lot, it has got three small floors: kitchen, living room with a dining table and a sofabed, big bedroom for two + a bed for a child. The garden is not far, it takes just 5 minutes of a fascinating walk into the valley to join it. Sorano is located in the middle of the most secret and sacred etruscan lands, and it is loved by artists and by who is sensible to the real things. Breathtaking scenery, excellent tipical restaurants, wonderful walks or rides, baths in several different termal waters, quality craftsmanship.
This is a magic and hospitable land — volcanic and tranquil, wild and sweet. Here dwells something inexpressible and magnetic which preserves it from any form of pollution.
“The whole thing small and dainty in proportion, and fresh, somehow charming instead of impressive. There seems to have been in the Etruscan instinct a real desire to preserve the natural humour of life. And that is a task surely more worthy, and even much more difficult in the long run, than conquering the world or sacrificing the self or saving the immortal soul..."

Thank you Clara for the nicest time in Sorano! It has been a wonderful experience! We loved the house. Clara made us feel at home and gave us all information that we needed. The communication with her was super easy. The house exactly as described. Many things to see around ... I wish we had at least one more week! we hope to be back...
Clara est une hôtesse très accueillante et la petite maison qu'elle met à disposition de ses hôtes est très agréablement décorée. La disposition peu commune des pièces, et les escaliers un peu raides qui les séparent, nous permettent d'appréhender (avec le confort en plus) ce que devait être la vie dans ces maisons imbriquées les unes dans les autres, qui composent un village pas trop fréquenté par les touristes (du moins au mois de mai).
Ho apprezzato tutto in questi tre giorni trascorsi nella casa di Clara. Si sente un affascinante, riposante senso di equilibrio delle cose essenziali. Dentro e fuori casa non manca nulla esattamente come nulla manca tra le mura del borgo di Sorano. Esemplare l'ospitalità di Clara, ci ha fatto sentire liberi di sentirci a casa. Super consigliato, è un gradito riferimento nella Maremma toscana.
We had a wonderful time in sorano - a charming little town - and the appartment that is just as charming and thank clara for her hospitality!
Abbiamo passato una settimana bellissima. Sorano è un luogo splendido pieno di pace e tranquillità e Clara è stata molto gentile e sempre presente quando necessario. La casa si trova nel centro storico dal sapore medievale con una vista mozzafiato sulla valle di fronte al paese. E' uno di quei luoghi in cui vorremmo tornare e ritornare appena possibile. La casa nel magico borgo etrusco è uno dei luoghi più belli che per ora abbiamo trovato su airbnb e lo consigliamo a tutti quanti.
Clara's place was cosy, charming and complemented the beautiful town of Sorano perfectly. There was a nice closed fireplace that kept the house nice and warm. The views from the bedroom were so breathtaking.
Clara was very nice and patiently waited for use despite us being significantly delayed.
Make sure you get good directions as our gps and google maps did not pick it up.
We really enjoyed staying at Clara's and highly recommend staying there.
About the Host, Clara
Hi my name is Clara, I like to cook, go for walks in the woods, gardening and make handcrafted felt accessories. I work with hemp and other natural fabrics and I'm glad to open my store on demand. I'd like to welcome my guests as friends and help them discovering all the local secrets and treasures of Sorano.
This is why I personally restored this house dedicated to Thesan, the etruscan goddess of dawn, using original raw meterials and antique furnitures.
Mi piace cucinare, camminare nei boschi, lavorare in giardino e creare accessori in feltro fatto a mano. Lavoro con la canapa e altre fibre naturali e, a richiesta, sono felice di mostrare le mie collezioni di abbigliamento. Mi piace accogliere i miei ospiti come amici e aiutarli a scoprire tutti i segreti e le meraviglie di Sorano. Per questo ho curato personalmente la ristrutturazione di questa casa dedicata a Thesan, la dea etrusca dell'alba, utilizzando materiali originali e mobili d'epoca.
