The location of Sorano is ideal. Equidistant from Rome and Florence. 45 minutes from Orvieto to the East, and 45 minutes from Orbetello and the beautiful Costa d'Argento of the Mediterranean to the West. 75 minutes to Siena. 25 Minutes to the lovely Lake Bolsena. Sorano is a beautifully preserved medieval hill town in the Alta Maremma area of Tuscany, characterized by unspoiled rolling landscapes and fascinating Etruscan sites. Described by a guest as a "nid douillet"- a cosy nest-, the "Swift's View" apartment is located in the historic center of the town, and affords wonderful views down to the valley of the Lente river over terra cotta roof tops. The name of the apartment is inspired by the ethereal birds that nest in the volcanic tufa stone walls of the town. Wifi is available and parking is a short walk away. The apartment is on 2 levels. The main floor is the living area and kitchen, with a large 14th century fireplace and a pull out couch that could sleep an additional 2 people. The lower floor, accessed by three steps, contains the bedroom and bathroom. The owner/host lives in the adjacent 3 bedroom house, which is also available to rent by special request. Both places were renovated as period homes with great attention to detail by the owner, and are furnished with lovely antiques. The cul-de-sac, where the apartment is located, can be used to eat al fresco- and the opposite cantina is usually open for an excellent glass of homemade wine.
Chris is an excellent host that goes out his way to make your stay the best! He has great reccomendations for day trips. The apartment is cozy and very comfortable.
Chris' charming medieval apartement in the old town of Sorana will provide you with all amenities on little space. The windows frame a landscape of almost romantic quality, that will unevitably remind you on Caspar David Friedrich paintings. Chris hosted us with greatest generosity and hospitality. A place you'll never forget!
We had read the reviews and thought that Chris sounded like a great host and Sorano was a great place. Both exceeded our expectations! We loved Sorano and the surrounding area. Chris was an exceptional host. He made our experience so rich by sharing his town, his stories and his vast knowledge of the area. The apartment was adorable and super comfortable.
I can only rave about my experience in Sorano. Chris' place is the perfect getaway if you are looking for a place off the beaten track.
Chris was great, really helpful in telling us where to go-we didn't even need a guidebook.
And he's got two cute cats:-)
Chris was incredible, went way out of his way to make sure my stay was as best as it could be and Sorano is breathtaking. You're immediately taken back in time as soon as you set foot in the town and Chris' place is an extension of that. It's perfect. Highly recommend it.
Oh boy! Sorano is an undiscovered joy. We are half-tempted to lie and pretend that Chris and his wonderful apartment were awful just so we can keep it to ourselves!
Chris is a gentleman and the perfect host. The apartment is gorgeous, homely and has breathtaking views of the valley and surrounding countryside. Sorano is idyllic -- a quiet, not-too-touristy haven.
Chris gave us great recommendations for things to do and places to eat.
Thank you Chris and hopefully see you (website hidden) For excellent local food and wine, visit L'Ottava Rima (only open weekends) in the old town of Sorano itself. Bit hard to find but worth it.
Direi che è stata un'ottima esperienza , posto bellissimo assolutamente da vedere come anche tutti i luoghi là intorno.Ottima l'ospitalità.
We were so happy to meet Chris. He's a great host, speaks English, and owns a little corner of Sorano, a charming, laid back medieval town in tufa country. He knows a lot about the area and is full of suggestions on what to do. The apartment is cozy and full of funky old world charm. We would stay there again.
I can't tell you how grateful we are to have found this sweet spot in Tuscany. It wasn't our honeymoon, but close. My husband and I wanted to replicate our honeymoon for our 25th Anniverary and Swift's View Apartment was perfect. We could have gone high end, but this lovely homey apartment was way more gratifying and closer to the original. We felt (and acted!) like 25-year-olds again!) Chris, who lives next door, brought us his homemade fig and ginger jam with a fresh loaf of Italian bread on our first morning. In the evening we shared a bottle of his home bottled red wine and a pot of wild mushroom risotto. BTW, prettiest town in Tuscany! Thank you, Chris! You rekindled the magic! Come stay with us in NYC any time!
Not only is this an incredible, special, charming and beautiful place to sleep, explore and relax but Chris is a perfect host. The house you will stay in is clean, cozy and will quickly become your home--regardless of how long you stay. I didn't know that such beautiful villages exist...maybe just in the movies. Listen to his suggestions, enjoy the quiet and magical village and eat lots of yummy food!!!! If you have a car I also highly suggest visiting his friend in Sovana, stopping in Pitigliano and (email hidden)autiful and natural hot springs about 40minutes away. He'll tell you everything you need to know. Thank you so much Chris!!!
