Dream place
Nov 2019 • Family
Just got back from a 6 night stay at the historical villa Cetinale. The villa is stunning with its beautiful architecture. Each room is different from other and is quiet unique. The artefacts collected and displayed in the villa adds so much character to the place. The stunning garden is its crowning glory. The property is huge but the staff makes it a very safe place. The team of chefs with their helpers are so well trained. Each one would go that extra mile to make the guest comfortable. Last but not the least. Isabella and Charlie are great organisers. Very patient and co operative. Great place to have a family holiday.

We were just the entertainment at an event but wow !
Jul 2019 • Business
We were booked to perform at an event here. Lets be clear its miles from anywhere and a hidden jewel !
I think they rent it out with seperate rooms and apartments but if you have a huge budget and are planning a party / wedding - this place is extraordinary
30 mins drive from Siena and you enter the most beautiful gardens and so immaculate. The villa is imposing and impressive and the food we had was mind blowing
Even if you go to take a walk around the gardens - do so !

incredible GARDEN with PENITENTIAL STAIRCASE
May 2019
We didn't go inside the villa, but the garden around the villa and up the hill behind it
was full of lemon trees, wisteria, irises, and a green pathway up to an amphitheater
with statues, beyond which was the penitential staircase made for Pope Alexander VII,
for whom Bernini made a tomb in St. Peter's. At the top of the hill of this long crumbling
staircase is a Romitorio, where a real monk lived until the nineteenth century. We couldn't make it all the way up, but those who did felt truly "beatified."
Make sure to look at the double stairs at the back of the villa, too; they are probably the model for Chiswick in England since they predate Burlington's building.
We saw both this garden and La Foce in the same trip and loved both for different reasons. Cetinale absorbs the hill into the landscape of the garden, while La Foce
forces the viewer to compare the "intimate rooms" of the garden with the vast land
beyond.

If there was a 6th star it would be yours!
Dec 2016 • Family
There is a reason why nobody has anything bad to say about this place. The property is immaculate, the staff is extremely professional and lovely to be around. You will never hear the word "no" and you will probably never have a holiday quite like it. We were lucky enough to stay at Villa Cetinale for a whole ten days and almost immediately were made to feel at home. The in-house chef prepared beautiful meals from ingredients sourced locally and we quickly came to realize that meals in were better than meals out at a restaurant! I highly recommend Villa Cetinale for anyone visiting the area. You will find yourself in a paradise within a paradise, being so close to so many other beautiful things in the area.

A stunning formal garden with wonderful views
Apr 2016
I contacted the venue before we left, and then confirmed a day to visit once in Tuscany, as visits are by appointment only. This is a lovely formal garden, with orchards, olive grove, topiary, rose garden (partly called the English Garden) and a remarkable walk up to a feature called the romitorio - up being the important word, as there are 300 steps. Lovely visit in great weather; butterflies, bird song and fragrance, and virtually no-one else there. Heaven!
