Villa Sensano is run by two very hospitable sisters, Federica and Lavinia, and the property is set in stunning surrounds with views that seem to go on forever. The location of the villa feels "off the beaten track" but day trips are in easy reach which makes it a really great place to base yourself for exploring Tuscany. You will...

Just a great place. Our family loved the hotel, although more will call it home. Because she really do not resemble the classic hotel, but the rural apartments. Everything was clean, fresh and new. Manager responsive and recommended the best sights for which we had not imagined.

A wonderful relaxing week was spent by us. We particularly enjoyed the spa & chair massage and the ambience in the Wellness Centre. Our apartment was excellent, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Wi-Fi available was a bonus. The downside was its location to shop for food being 17 kms to Volterra, around winding roads. We needed to self-cater for special dietary...
