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

Villa Sensano is fabulous. Frederica and Livinia, the proprietors and onsite managers, were lovely hosts. We became fast friends, and I am coming back in August! The late-18th century building that hosts many of the rooms/apartments is so nicely appointed - one can really feel the old world Tuscan charm. The grounds are beautiful, with amazing views and a pool... More

A great find. Federica is a smart businesswoman and accommodating hostess, together with the assistance of her sister. They take great pride in this wonderful property, and Federica speaks English very well. The apartments are spacious and well outfitted. The location is remote and hard to fund, but it is beautiful and very quiet. There is a good restaurant next... More

The pool area was very relaxing with wonderful views. A nice break at the end of a busy day of touring the area. Our 2 bedroom apt. was very comfortable and spacious.... More

We've just returned from 2 fabulous days at Villa Sensano at the end of our holiday in Italy. Our apartment was spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped (particularly the kitchen which had a full-size dish washer) and the setting was stunning. We all enjoyed the pool area, the pretty gardens and the wonderful calmness of the place. The kids were... More

The road to the Villa lined with pine trees puts you in a mood reminding a successful movie about ... who said Gladiators? Finding this kind of quiet and desolate nature mid-August is almost unreal, but it is possible in Sensano. The views are breathtaking. Great apartment, wide, clean, silent, well equiped and comforatble. The pool allows some real swimming... More
