We stayed four nights in this villa (in the annex, with garden view) and had a very pleasant stay. The property is quite old (fashioned) but comfortable. The staff goes out of their way to assist and has good tips and advice.
The rooms are spacious (almost a suite), only the bathroom is very small, and I never liked having a shower in the bathtub.
The location is nice but out of the city (3K, € 12 for a cab)). Beautiful gardens and views of the Tuscan hills.
Breakfast is OK, but limited and exactly the same every day, so not much fun there.
There is also a tennis court and a swimming pool. Free parking.
Do have dinner in their restaurant Altri Tempi, and have the Panna Cotta for dessert - it is divine (so is the chocolate pie).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The four star hotel “Villa Scacciapensieri” is ideal for clients looking for a peaceful, warm and cordial atmosphere, an excellent kitchen and attentive service. Location : the hotel is set in its own large park and gardens on top of a little hill only 2.5 km north of the medieval city walls of Siena, 1,5 km from the train station, just on the border of the Chianti wine region; all the main sights of Tuscany are easily reached. There is a very regular public bus service from the Villa to the historical centre every 15 minutes (on weekends twice an hour, after 8 p.m. once an hour). The main villa, constructed in the late 1790s – early 1800s, has rooms on the two upper floors, while the reception desk (24 h.), the restaurant "Altri Tempi," the cosy bar-lounge with open fire place and library, the private little chapel and the media-room with Internet access are all located on the ground level. There are two annex buildings "Limonaia" and "Villino" both very close to the main Villa. All rooms are air-conditioned. The outdoor swimming pool (open from mid May to October) overlooks the Chianti hills. We also have a tennis court, bicycles and parking for the exclusive use of our guests, there is no charge for these facilities. Garages are available on request (Euro 20/night). ... more less
