Tuscany all to ourselves! (There was literally only one other couple staying at this resort and we hardly ever saw them) Owned by two sisters who were very helpful and accommodating. We weren't aware of the check-in rule but one of the girls came by just for us and helped us check in a bit early. The apartment was quite...

Wonderful villa in the middle of nice nature with perfect views. There is a nice small restaurant right next to it, so you can benefit from being in the nature while having the services close to you. Owners speak very good English and are very nice and helpful. Apartment itself looks even better live than on the photos.

It's hard to choose accommodation in Tuscany, simply because there's so much choice out there - Booking.com alone lists 14,000+ hotels. So we picked Villa Sensano somewhat at random, based on good reviews, nice pics of the pool and a reasonable mid-point location - and it didn't disappoint. Special thanks to the hosts for staying up without complaint until almost...

We visited Villa Sensano with our 5 year old, and it was a lovely three days. Fredirica and her sister couldn't be more helpful. The villa has been restored to a very high quality and the location is beautiful. Before we went we were a little concerned that it might be too far from anywhere but actually its ideally located...

Villa Sensano is well presented accommodation in a lovely setting. The swimming pool has particularly fine views over the neighbouring Tuscan hills. The owners are friendly and responsive to guests' requirements, and we very much enjoyed our few days there.

Genuinely one of the best places to stay! The setting & location are amazing, the facilities and the villa are perfect and Federica and Lavinia are brilliant hosts. We stayed for one week with our 2 kids and honestly didn't want to leave that leg of our holiday. It felt very homely and relaxing without being intrusive. With fantastic weather...

This is just one of those places which have the power to break your vacation routine. I normally go to Tuscanny for sightseeing, good food ...
