This hotel has standards of service which I imagine existed before the war. Since my imagination is probably an idealised fantasy the Villa Scacciapensieri is probably much more perfect than the reality. The hotel is beautiful in a slightly old fashioned way, the gardens are magical and there is a good pool and tennis court. The service is kind, attentive... More

The villa was booked by chance since previously we wanted to stay within the city but later chose wise and probably was one of the highlights of our Tuscany holiday this summer. Starting with the room with Siena Panoramic views one can visually be enchanted as soon you step in. The service comes next which is truly 5* starting with... More

I wish I could add something unique here, but the five-star folks have nailed it: This is a beautiful respite from the hectic crowd in Siena (as we went during the Palio). The service was delightful and intelligent and dinner on the veranda was one of the best meals we had on our two-week trip throughout Italy. The grounds are... More

Aside from the stunningly manicured gardens, the gorgeous bar area, the panoramic views from the dining area, the service at this place equals that of anywhere else in Europe. You ask, they answer, and answer intelligently as a bonus. We went for the Palio. They arranged for everything from large car to pick us up in Pisa, to tickets, for... More

We chose this hotel, even though it was a bit out of our price range, because the reviews were so good and we want somewhere to relax in beautiful surroundings when we first arrived for our two weeks in Italy. The environment did not disappoint - the grounds were lovely, the gardens well tended, the staff very helpful and professional.... More

My entire family (15 of us) just returned from a 3 day stay at Villa Scacciapensieri. Perched on a hill outside the Siena city center (about a 5 minute cab ride), this is not a super-luxury hotel, nor does it pretend to be. Instead, it is a peaceful and authentic respite from the crowds of Piazza del Campo and the... More

We had a fantastic 2 week stay at this beautiful villa hotel. We got a room in the annex as there were none available in the main villa but we were more than impressed. It's in a great location about 15 minutes from the city of Siena and is set in lovely landscaped gardens. We particularly enjoyed the peace and... More

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
