My family and 1 (Mother, Father, Girl 6, Girl 4) stayed in Villa di Sensano for almost a week at the end of August 2012. We had spent a week at another location, which we had enjoyed enormously, and so were a little concerned that the second week would not be as excellent.... We had no need to worry, as Frederica and her sister (as well as a small terrier!) made us very welcome, and the accommodation is impossible to fault.
The building was an old villa which has been totally renovated, and to very exacting standards. All modern conveniences are in place, including a wi-fi connection specific to each apartment which actually worked, contrary to many other hotels supposedly offering this convenience.
We are not really 'Spa' people, so did not avail of any of the offerings in that regard, so cannot comment on those facilities.
The surrounding countryside is typical Tuscany, rolling hills, covered with productive fields and treelined roads, to our eyes very lovely. From Villa di Sensano we travelled to Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra and some other more lesser famous towns. There is a restaurant in a nearby building (not owned or controlled by the villa) which does a good job for an evening meal, i enjoyed a seafood platter starter which was really very good.
I would have no reservation recommending Villa di Sensano, as I know that anyone would have to enjoy it.
