The villa in the hills above Siena lets you step back to the time when film stars, princes and princesses stayed here. Our kids thought it was the most special place they had ever been to. We had massive rooms with high ceilings in the main villa, took breakfast and most evening meals on the terrace in the beautiful garden... More

In our travels we have stayed in some great hotels but this one has to be one of the best! The location is amazing with the most wonderful views and gardens including a pool. The service can't be faulted and the meals are served on the garden terrace. It really is perfect!

We were celebrating my husbands 60th and took our teenage sons to Italy. The villa is set in gorgeous gardens and swimming pool was a delight after the heat of the day. Buses run to the city from the gates to the villa very frequently so you have the views into the countryside and peaceful setting with dinner and breakfast... More

Our family of four stayed here for 2 nights in June. The service was just amazing - the wait staff at breakfast and dinner was exceptional. The views from the terrace were fantastic and the grounds were so well kept. Our kids swam in the pool - it was very cold (on a hot day) and not super clean. Our... More

We stayed for 1 night on our tour of Italy and this was probably our least favourite hotel. The location was good and our room had lovely views. The outside of the villa is attractive and there are gardens to sit in with lemon trees but the inside is definitely in need of some updating. We had a warm welcome... More

I can not recommend this hotel. Upon arrival there was a wedding at the Villa and we were clearly a nuisance. This was made very clear as we pulled up and there was no where to park and no one to direct us. AT this point let me explain, there is a sign 300 yards from the entrance to the... More

My girlfriends and I just spent 7 nights here and it was everything we expected it would be. We had suite #46 and it was immaculate. Very nice and clean. There is nothing bad about this property. If traveling alone this is a very safe place to stay. Restaurant was amazing and everyone very friendly. Booked a tour that was... More

If you are looking for a beautiful hilltop villa with the old Italian charm then you can't miss with Villa Scacciapensieri. My wife and I stayed 8 nights here in late May and enjoyed every moment. We had a very large room in the main villa with balcony overlooking the valley and rear gardens. We preferred to stay in one... More

We toured round (8 hotels in 14 nights) and this was our favourite. A real oasis near our favourite city, Siena. The service was top notch without being overbearing. Outside breakfast was a highlight for us. Our room had a bath which I had been missing. I want to go back. Comfy bed & aircon too.

I stayed here for four nights and absolutely loved it! The hotel is a classic Italian villa with spectacular views of the chianti hills. The gardens are beautifully landscaped with roses and lemon trees with plenty of sitting areas to relax and enjoy the views. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, and my room (which was not in the... More
