“Will definately return”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

It was a shame we were only in Italy 3 nights. The rooms are basic but comfy and very well equipped and the views are amazing of the lake. Worth every penny of the small cost it is to upgrade. I was surprised and very impressed to have such fast wifi that far up the hills. A honus to have it as I wasnt expecting such luxury. The apartment was very clean and tidy. We were welcomed warmly by very polite and excellent hosts. The hosts were very helpful when we arrived very late at night after travelling by car from Rome. Siena is about 40 minutes drive away which is lovely.
Overall a fab stay albeit only 3 nights but I loved every second of my first experience of Italy and can only say this was helped dramatically by my stay at Villa Sensi. Thank you all.

Paola was a font of information and spoke English very well. We had a standard room that was clean and quite comfortable. This B & B is located at the top of a hill so has a spectacular view of the lake and countryside. Paola made suggestions of what we could do and which restaurants to eat at. The restaurants were great and the food delicious. The breakfast is served in the main house and was OK. There was bread with ham and cheese, sweet cakes and coffee and tea.

Room Tip: There is a honeymoon suite upstairs that was very large with a lovely view.

From the moment we arrived until we left, we felt like home at Villa Sensi. Paulo, the host and owner takes great effort in making his guests feel at home. He is a great person. Also the ladies assisting Paulo in the B&B were great. We had a wonderful time with them.
The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. The view on the lake is absolutely astonishing! In the village of Tuoro, there are several nice restaurants where one can have a wonderful meal for a good price. Paulo can assist with information on good restaurants in the neigbourhood. The pool is nice and clean and has a beautiful view on the lake.

The location of Villa Sensi is an excellent starting point for trips to cities in the region. We made trips to Florence, Siena, Cortona, Perugia, Spello, Spoleto, Assisi and many more. All are within an hour drive. We will definitely return to Villa Sensi on our next trip to Italy! Remember Paulo: corri corri!

After all the positive reviews i can only agree, Paolo, the owner, is a very friendly and helpfull Person. Villa Sensi has a very much private and relaxing athmosphere. The views from Terrace and Pool over the lake are outstanding. It was a bit hard to find but if you book in advance Paolo gives you instructions by email. Overall a place made for couples.

Room Tip: A Car is very much advised! As Villa Sensi has no Restaurant be prepared to go out for Dinner to One...

Advantages:
- The location, the view and the house itself are very beautiful.

- The swimming pool adds up a lot.

Drawbacks:
- The rooms are very basic and quite
- The wifi doesn't work properly

Dear guest,
first of all I wish to apologize if you thouhgt I have not been nice to you and if I ever gave you the impression of offending your personal religious beliefs. This is certainly not my style as it is not the opinion of 99,9 % of our guests from all over the world. Kindly look at more than 130 feed backs (trip advisor and booking.com). It seems that what all guests appreciate most is our kindness and warm and sincere hospitality. You have only been here 1 day and we accepted and respected your strict kosher diet gladly providing fresh fruit and milk for your baby as you requested. We and all the other guests were just a bit surprised when, without asking, you cleared half the breakfast table of all plates, cups, etc., which we had set up for other guests. Than you emptied 2 bags of kosher food and asked us for plastic and sealed plates, cups, knifes, spoons which we prompltly supplied (luckily we had them!). After that you went on playing very noisily with your kid in the corridor while other guests were still at sleep. Nobody complained although we all felt that sharing a place with other people should really mean respecting their space and privacy. When you asked us to warm up food for your baby lunch in our kitchen we said it was ok. We also agreed that you could do the same for your baby's evening meal. It was almost 11at night and we were relaxing in our sitting room, almost at sleep after a full day work, with door and windows closed. Obviously, at such late time we thought that you and your baby must have had your dinner hours before. We were surprised when you rang the doorbell and asked to use our kitchen at 11 at night!!! By then we were a bit annoyed by your general, careless and unrespectful attitude towards other people. Nevertless, thinking of the baby, we let you in and left you in the kitchen. Without asking for permission you opened our refrigerator, start cooking pasta and frying eggs for yourselves, not for the baby which was at sleep in the room. At that point I came into the kitchen and told you that you had booked only a bed and breakfast and that a self contained apartment might be more suitable for you. I am sorry you felt I offended you. That was not my intention although I felt that you had a very selfish attitude and were not very polite towards your host and the other guests. Best wishes from us all. Paolo

With my sister we visited villa sensi to have a few days chill out before everyone arrived for my wedding that was taking place at villa baroncino.
We had the best time with Paolo! it rained for the afternoon when we arrived so he took us into his kitchen and poured us a glass of wine and made us some lunch. We sat chatting all afternoon as i fretted about the weather but he assured me it never rains that long in Italy! he was right!
This place was a home from home, a very special place. We felt so comfortable and relaxed in this little place of tranquility. It was quiet and the rooms were so clean and tidy. The breakfast and coffee was also very good, with a beautiful pool and the mot stunning views that i don't think can be beaten.
If you are looking for a place to get away for awhile and just relax with the nicest host you could ask for, then this is the place.
my parents are now going next week and my husband and i will be going next year for our anniversary. my sister and i could not have chosen a better place to relax and chill for a few days. Paolo you are fab, we miss u ! see you soon ;-) kelly and emma
