Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Where, exactly, is Sogna?
Sogna lies in the heart of Tuscany, within the cultural triangle of Siena, Arezzo and Florence, on the edge of the Chianti region.

How many people can the cottage accommodate?
The house is furnished to comfortably accommodate two to four people. The master bedroom is furnished with a king size bed. The other bedroom has two single beds.

Are Pets allowed?
No, due to unfortunate past experiences with animals, we regret that we can no longer permit animals in the cottage.

How does Sogna La Fonte differ from other cottages in the region?
Sogna La Fonte is part of a small, privately owned community of ancient, restored buildings in one of the most beautiful regions of Tuscany. Only seldom do the owners of houses and apartments in Sogna come at the same time. Due to differences in holiday schedules, Sogna is never crowded, and this makes it ideal for relaxation.

Are tennis rackets supplied by you?
No, we supply neither rackets nor balls. We would expect players to bring their own equipment.

What does the rent include?
Rent includes bed sheets, towels, kitchen cloths, water, electricity, heating, wood for the fireplace, laundry changes every Saturday, pool care and cleaning after your stay.

What does the rent not include?

Which is the best season for Sogna?
Our favourite times for vacationing in Sogna are May/June and September/October. Culture, however, knows no season. The luscious Tuscan landscape regularly renders beauty and surprises.

Will I be able to use my cell phone in Sogna?
Yes. All services function in the area of Sogna. Signal strength within the building may be limited due to the massive stone walls. No land line is provided.

Are there parking spaces on the Sogna grounds?
Yes. There are two spacious parking lots, near the edge of the Borgo. You are asked to use the upper parking lot, and leave the lower parking lot for passing tourists. You may also drive right up to the house for loading and unloading. The peaceful athmosphere in Sogna is maintained by parking cars only in marked parking lots.

Where is the nearest grocery store?
The nearest town for all your grocery needs is Ambra (3.5 km from Sogna). There you will find stores for fruit, vegetables, meat and bread, in addition to a bank with ATM, two bars, two restaurants and one gas station. The nearest supermarket and train station are in Bucine (a 10-minute-drive). We also like Monte San Savino, a beautiful medieval town for all your shopping needs and good restaurants. The bending road from Sogna to Monte San Savino offers stunning views across Tuscany.
