My wife and I stated here for two nights and were immediately impressed with the room upgrade upon arrival. The hotel is possibly a little dated in some areas but we get it added to the quirks of what was a lovely place to stay. The views were stunning surrounding the hotel. We took a walk behind the villa and...

Shocking and unhelpful approach from this establishment. I wasn’t sure when were going to be able to get to Siena from South Africa so a RESERVATION was all I wanted. I found Villa Scacciapensieri and was led to believe that I could make a reservation and would only have to pay on final booking and confirmation. After all, our flights...

A lovely Villa surrounded by gardens on the hilly outskirts of Siena so there are good views of the countryside. Took bus no. 3 from the train station (tickets from Information inside) or Piazza Gramsci.

The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The villa is beautiful, the rooms are comfortable and cozy. The hostess kept the fire going while we dined on wine and sandwiches and after-dinner digestivos in the late evening in the bar. Wonderful. We will return.

My wife and I were decided to spend more than just a day or so in Siena. We carefully chose this location because it was out side of il centro but on a bus route for city buses. It had a pool, it had "a room with a view" something my wife tries to make happen as often as possible...

This hotel is situated outside of the historic part of Siena. If you travel without a car you have to take a taxi from the train station. Right in front of the hotel is a bus stop which brings you to the center in about 30 min . The buses run about every 15 minutes. It is quite worthwhile to...

The long, tree-lined drive up to the Villa is impressive. The Villa was built in the late 1790’s and even has a fresco in the hall done in the early 1800’s. Our room was spacious with an adjoining bathroom. The grounds to the villa are wonderful; in the summer you can sit on the numerous chairs under shady trees. There...

On outskirts of town, about 20 minutes by bus to city centre, and overlooking surrounding countryside. Peaceful, quiet and readily accessible. Loved eating in the restaurant with the type of service and attitudes that we thought had disappeared form the planet long ago. Many thanks for a great stay.

This is a beautiful grand dame of a hotel just outside Siena, which we completely fell in love with. It has a old world charm that oozes from its every pore, a beautiful main building, with many different nooks and crannies inside and out in which people relax and chat. Everyone who works at this family run hotel is friendly...

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
