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..."

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.
