I feel ambivalent about being the first guest to post a review on TripAdvisor for Villa Buoninsegna. It's one of those places that are so special that you just want to keep them out of the spotlight, because you know they will then become popular and you may never be able to get a room again. However I would feel guilty if I didn't write one, because the lovely villa deserves to be adored more often.
Take a look at my photos. Breathtaking 2-story villa with gigantic rooms and amazing views. Largest bathroom and windows I've ever seen and everything was elegantly decorated. This villa has a long history and you can tell just by being in it.
The 2 pools are great. We didn't get to swim in them because that week was unusually cold, but they're both close to the villa and the apartments and very clean.
On Fridays and Sundays you can eat at the villa, a set menu of 5 to 6 courses with fabulous wine for around 30 euros per person. Divine.
The villa also offers a wine tour, and the nearby town Rapolano Terme was famous for its hot spring and spa. Unfortunately our schedule didn't allow us to experience either, so that's another reason to go back. I absolutely love this place....it is simply grand yet charming.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Villa Buoninsegna is a big agricultural property with 320 hectares and a few apartments (in self-catering accommodation) and rooms in B&B accommodation for spending a pleasant green holiday, in the very heart of Tuscany, just 27 km from Siena. Our most important cultivations are vineyards and olive-trees: our Super Tuscan Red Wines and our Olive Oil, from organic agriculture, are sold directly on the property. A wide Mediterranean forest surrounds the whole estate, where we grow also corn and sunflowers. The property is named after the big XVII century Noble Villa, with a typical and noble structure, built in the centre of the "borgo". The apartments for "agriturismo" are placed exactly in the "borgo", where some of the houses were totally renewed in 1999/2002/2004: altogether 5 apartments for max. 20 guests (self catering accommodation), and 6 double rooms in B&B accommodation. Villa Buoninsegna has 2 swimming pools situated in two different parts of the garden: the smaller one is 10mt x 5mt and the bigger one is 14mt x 7mt. ... more less
