That title might sound a little exaggerated, but I'm really not kidding! This place was incredible - everything you could ask for in a Tuscan villa! We were there for friends' wedding, and were so, so impressed.
We didn't actually stay there - we stayed at the Fattoria di Corsano next door (literally a one minute walk away, and that one is owned by the brother (I think) of the owners of Tenuta), which was also just stunning.
The villa was split into apartments, though they could be opened up to a large house type setting, as it was for the wedding. The owners and staff were just incredible - so welcoming and friendly, super helpful, and they were funny, too! They took just amazing care of us.
The grounds were also awesome - vineyards and olive grooves, a little park at the top of the drive, and a quick 10 minute walk into the tiny town of Corsano, where there was a market and an Osteria. The villa had refrigerators and washing machines. The pool was the perfect place to hang out on a hot Tuscan afternoon, and the views of the vineyards and the 1,000 year old church across the little valley could not be beat.
It's a little expensive to get to by taxi (about $40 each way from Siena), but fairly easy to get to with a car.
We felt so welcome, ate delicious food, drank wine made from the property's vineyards, and had just a perfect few days there. I will absolutely go back at any opportunity I get!
Two things to remember - it's typical in places like this to collect and take out your own trash (to bins at the end of the driveway), and some of the bathrooms at our villa shared hot water, so on the day of the wedding when everyone was showering at the same time, the hot water went quick. But in a centuries old villa, that wasn't a huge surprise.
