We picked this place based on positive reviews, and while it was quiet and friendly staff, it was not convenient for frequent trips into Siena (had to take a bus and as you might guess they do not follow the schedule in Italy!). Expensive lunch (sandwich and drink for €12) and thought the room a bit pricey. The staff are the highlight because they are friendly, but we found ourselves locked out one night and the night porter was none to friendly when we had to wake him! This is a quiet place but does not live up to our expectations (though the scenery and views really were nice).
- 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 1790’s – early 1800’s, 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
