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

Villa Sensano deserves at least four stars!!! We went to Tuscany for three weeks. We stayed at villa Sensano for six days in appartment RosaLila. We enjoyed it so much, because of the beautiful surrounding, the silence of nature and the services of the owners. The accomodation is near to San Gimignano, a lovely town. It's a nice region to...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Sensano. It is located near Volterra and San Gimignano. Both cities are worth visiting and both have a grocery store. We also did day trips to Florence and Sienna from Sensano. It was nice to return to our large, clean, fully equipped apartment to relax, to stare at the beautiful countryside from the... More

We chose these accommodations because it is difficult to find this type of lodging in Tuscany that rents for less than a week and we only had 2 nights. Our apartment was clean and well taken care of. Villa Sensano is difficult to find and I did not do a good job of making sure that I had the best... More

We spent our holiday with 3 small children in the Laurence room, early July. Overall a very pleasant experience, the family enjoyed its time. The enterprise is small, which allows for great personal attention from Frederica and Lavinia. Everything is very clean and well maintained, the garden is large, full of green with many trees offering the shade, leading to... More

We spent four nights here in June with our 3 children, 13,10 and 7. We all loved it after the frantic pace of Rome. Frederica and Lavinia went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed for our stay and helped in arranging our day trips. The Laurence room was very well set up for a family... More
