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

My husband, my sister and I spent 6 nights at this lovely villa in September 2014. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous with wonderful scents of lavender and honeysuckle. 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

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
