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.

The space

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 sofa-bed, big bedroom for two + a bed for a child. 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 typical restaurants, wonderful walks or rides, baths in several different thermal 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..."

There must be few better views on offer than this charming rustic house in the unique Tuscan town of Sorano! The house looks directly out onto the valley, and a number of ancient Etruscan caves are visible directly from the windows, and can be reached on foot in minutes, via the many delightful paths through the lush valley below. It's a wonderful place to spend a few relaxing days!

The apartment is in a very beautiful old town. The town is tiny and very quiet and peaceful. You will find yourselves often as the only people about. The views of the necropolis are picturesque. There is great access to beautiful walks and the nature that surrounds Sorano. The restaurant recommended, la ottiva rima is also a gem. If you are looking for a secluded stay in a place lost in time this is an excellent option.

Our stay with Clara was by far our favorite part of our trip. We felt like we were in a magical land or fairy tale and we're free to roam and discover our surroundings. People in the village were very pleasant and welcoming, even though we spoke less than 5 Italian words. We cooked the most flavorful pasta dishes during our stay and had the genuine old-timey experience of heating up the space with a wood stove and we loved everything about it! It encouraged us to sit back and take it all in. We will consider a repeat visit for a longer period.

This is such a magical place.. the house, the medieval village, this whole area of Tuscany. What a find on airbnb! I felt like I was going back in time to a different era. This is the perfect place for someone who likes to stay a little off the beaten tourist track and who appreciates the simple things. I loved just getting lost in the maze of stone streets that make up Sorano. At every turn you stumble upon beautiful flowers and cats napping in the sun :) The house itself is decorated in an quaint antiquey style that makes you feel right at home. Although it can be quite cold within the old stone walls, once we lit a fire in the wood burning stove it was more than cosy! Clara was also a great host and made sure we had everything we needed, even acting as a guide to point out her favorite spots. *Make sure you take time to explore the Etruscan pathways just outside the door.. there are so many beautiful trails to discover. This is truly a unique place to unwind and see a different side of Tuscany.

We had an extraordinary time at Clara's flat. It was beautiful, comfortable and very clean. Clara is a wonderful and thoughtful host. The flat itself was exquisite in its unique beauty, and the views from the windows were of nature, the small river flowing by down in the valley, and the picturesque roofs of the neighboring historic homes in the sweet village of Sorano. The bed upstairs in the gorgeous bedroom was very comfortable. We loved spending time in Sorano, and Clara's flat was the perfect place to stay.

Clara was a terrific host. The apartment is quaint, Sorano is beautiful, and Clara made sure we had a great experience settling in. Highly recommended as a base to explore the region. I would stay here again - thanks 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.
