We stayed 3 nights at this lovely villa in a small suite. It is in the most beautiful setting as long as you avoid looking at the hospital which is big and very ugly. Very unfortunate.
The rooms were reasonably clean and the decor was ageing, but did suit the villa well. Think that little touches for this type of accommodation were missing - like thick towels - we were supplied old rough towels. I would also think that this type of villa would provide dressing gowns and slippers but they don't.
The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly and the service was exceptional. Breakfast was tasty and offered a good choice.
Some of the gardens were beautiful, but some needed to be tided up bit, but to be honest I am being hyper critical. It was lovely. The swimming pool was large and cold!
Overall we had a lovely time and I would definately recommend this to relax in and enjoy your Siena trip.
- 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
