“The Authentic Tuscan Experience”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Villa Scopetella is the authentic Tuscan experience. The property is majestic with picture perfect views of nearby Sinalunga, and far off Cortona, and the villa is clean and cozy. With sixteen in our group of families including seven young children, the villa exceeded our expectations as a relaxing space. Sonja and Michael were very helpful, friendly and resourceful. We especially appreciated their local knowledge of the area for the best restaurants and sights, and their help in organizing the activities that made the trip so memorable. We hope to visit again!

“you would be crazy not to love this place”
Reviewed July 30, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We were a group of 9 adults and 7 children. Everything about this place was wonderful and exceeded expectations! Sonja was lovely, responsive and easy to communicate with throughout the booking process and during the months leading up to our visit.
The villa itself is even better than the pictures suggest. Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, well stocked kitchen, enough space for our group to spread out and relax.
Can’t say enough wonderful things about Sonja and Michael. They were incredibly accommodating, yet never intrusive. Do not miss out on Sonja’s cooking! Pizza parties with the wood burning oven were a favourite of both kids and adults, and the multi-course Tuscan dinners were delicious. What an incredible treat to have such amazing food prepared for us by great people in a beautiful setting. Kind of regret not having them cook every single meal for us while we were there!
The adults loved the wine tour arranged by Sonja, while the babysitters (also arranged by Sonja) kept an eye on the kids at the villa.
The location of the villa is very convenient. Just a few minutes to get to Sinalunga (easy access to groceries, butcher, gelato), 30 minutes to Cortona/Pienza/Montepulciano, 40 minutes to Siena.
Would highly recommend Villa Scopetello to anyone looking to enjoy a visit to Tuscany. You won’t regret booking here, we certainly hope to be able to return again someday to enjoy more of Sonja and Michael’s hospitality! Thank you, Sonja and Michael, for the wonderful memories!

“Amazing villa rental”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at Villa Scopetello in June as a large group of friends. Sonja and Michael were friendly and accommodating, helping us with our meals and giving us directions without ever making us feel we couldn't stretch out into the space and enjoy ourselves. There was more than enough space for the 18 of us who were there and we all were able to enjoy the beautiful grounds (outdoor seating, hammocks, hills to run in, pool, tennis courts, the views of the valley, the peace and quiet of the countryside) as well as take advantage of the short drives to Siena, Montalcine (for wine!) and Montepulciano - as well as Rome, obviously. This was a once in a lifetime vacation.

“Villa Scopetello is as presented... and more!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

Our week-long visit with family and friends at Villa Scopetello was nothing short of perfect. Villa Scopetello, Sonja, and Michael helped make my dream come true. The photos on the villa's amazingtuscany.com website do not exaggerate the villa’s beauty. It is centrally located to travel by car for less than an hour to a multitude of Tuscany hill towns. It is also close enough to Sinalunga to make a quick drive to the grocery store. This allowed us to enjoy the villa and all it has to offer, and experience Tuscany.

Michael and Sonja are the perfect hosts. Prior to our visit, Sonja promptly and thoroughly answered our multitude of questions. Going above and beyond what we ever expected, they offered their personal services to conduct train pickup or arrange transportation, translate for doctors, and assist in supplying a method for villa to pool transport for one person with limited mobility.

Sonja is an amazing cook. The foodies in our group all agreed that Sonja’s 4-course Tuscan dinner was the best food we had in Tuscany; and we had some great food! We also loved making and eating our pizzas with Sonja’s homemade dough and Michael’s expert baking in the wood fired pizza oven. Oh, and the wine - what a treat!

Although reassured by its presence on multiple reputable U.S. and international websites, we were hesitant to book the villa, and crossed our fingers that it really was as presented. Let us reassure you, it is…and more!

“INCREDIBLE!!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This place is AMAZING! The villa is huge (plenty of space for 19 of us), and it stays cool even during hot summer days because of the porticos and the breeze coming through. It is spread out enough that if some people stay up late, others can go to bed without being disturbed by noise. The tennis court and pool were great and we spent a lot of time (day and night) in the pool.

Sonja and Michael are wonderful. They had great advice on everything from running trails (you can run 3 miles around the property) to day trips in nearby towns. I would highly recommend having them cook you dinner for an additional price--their food is DELICIOUS and it is well worth the cost to sit outside and watch the sunset while you eat! Specifically, the pizza night (you get to wood fire pizzas you make yourself) and wild boar were incredible.

Overall, this place is as great as the pictures suggest! Definitely would do it all over again!

“Perfect Palace for a Relaxing Tuscan Getaway”
Reviewed June 20, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Villa Scopetello is like a dream come true. If you are traveling with a large group in Tuscany, I can't imagine a better place for you to stay! The Villa is truly a palace with twelve bedrooms, two kitchens, and ample common space to sit, relax, and enjoy the breathtaking views around you. The villa is situated on several acres that you have all to yourselves with a stunning view of the nearby hill town Sinalunga with the rolling hills of Tuscany all around you. The grounds has a tennis court, a pool, hammocks, and a large lawn amenable to any leisure activity you could imagine. And if you came to Italy to party, there aren't neighbors to bother as you dance the night away on one of several balconies soaking in the stars. Although secluded, the villa is close enough to town that you can stock up on groceries or Italian wine in no time at all. It is conveniently located a short drive from several beautiful towns that are great for day trips--Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Cortona, and Montalcino, to name a few. The real upside of Villa Scopetello, however, are its two caretakers who are there for your every need. We opted to have them cook for us every night which you should do, as well. Each night brought a truly excellent Italian feast, with countless courses of fresh tomatoes, pastas, pizzas, wild boar, and of course red wine. They were a source of great travel information, great conversation, and were genuinely interested in making sure every detail of our trip was perfect. You'd have to be a real scrooge not to have the time of your life at this place!

“Authentic Tuscany”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Our group originally rented Villa Scopetello due to it's great location as a jumping off point for day excursions to Tuscan wineries and it's close proximity to Siena. However it was very apparent during our first few minutes on the property that this experience would be much more than that.

From the welcome reception provided by our gracious hosts, Michael and Sonja, to the tour of the property and the beautiful setting, we instantly knew that this would be a highlight of our trip to Italy.

If you are looking to stay at an authentic Villa in Tuscany with family, friends, or business, look no further than Villa Scopetello. You will not be disappointed!
