Genuinely one of the best places to stay! The setting & location are amazing, the facilities and the villa are perfect and Federica and Lavinia are brilliant hosts. We stayed for one week with our 2 kids and honestly didn't want to leave that leg of our holiday. It felt very homely and relaxing without being intrusive. With fantastic weather... More

This is just one of those places which have the power to break your vacation routine. I normally go to Tuscanny for sightseeing, good food ... But this place put shackles on my legs and made me stay put. Beautiful vistas, extremely friendly owners, coold evening air (important during the stiffling hot summer as this year), large pool, big apartment... More

This was our second time back to Sensano. The property and grounds still looks great. It was enjoyable to just relax at the pool and soak up the Tuscan sun. Federica and Lavinia were always there to help and so welcoming!!!

My family comprising of 2 adults and 4 children (15, 12, 9 & 7) stayed in Villa Sensano for a week. The apartment was perfect for us - it had 3 bedrooms (2 big bedrooms and a single room), 2 modern bathrooms and a very well-equipped kitchen. The apartment was beautifully furnished in the old Tuscan style, clean and very... More

If you would like to have the right feeling what Tusciany’s spirit is, you will be at right place. Nice villa on the hill, the driveway lined with cypresses, the view of the surroundings and the best is inside, the service.

We stayed at Villa Sensano last week and it was a delightful experience. The property and grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The two sisters who run the villa were extremely friendly and helpful. I would recommend Villa Sensano to everyone.

A really beautiful property with wonderful garden and lovely pool. in the middle of nowhere but within easy reach of San Gim, Volterra and only 1.5 hours from Florence. we didn't use the facilities on offer but the little kitchenette would be perfectly satisfactory for a self catering holiday. the owners, 2 sisters, make you feel welcome and 'at home'....

The villa is located on a hill overlooking miles of unspoilt rural countryside. We had 'Rosa Tea' apartment overlooking the garden, which was comfortable and well appointed inside. Really enjoyed our short 4 day stay and wish we had just relaxed more here but had a busy itinerary to see as much of Tuscany as we could. Volterra, San Gimignano,... More

The rooms in which we lived for a small time (one week!) were nice, clean, no-nonsense, shaped with nice feeling for style. Historical, but totally clean. The rooms are in a historical setting on the top of a hill, from where you can overview a wide environment. The two women who cared for us were very nice and helpfull in... More

I am delighted. The two sisters hosting this villa made me, a sole elder woman, feel very comfortable. The appartements are wonderful, Everything you need for a vacation, even cooking is there. And the view over mountains and a rural italian countryside is amazing. I enjoyed the stay and will definitely come back, next time with my big family -... More
