Lovely views and friendly staff. The decor is to an older generations taste, but it works well for the location. Certain appliances could do with being upgraded eg air conditioning. The dinner service was great, the homemade deserts were particularly great. Overall great, it was like stepping back in time.

Dear Guest,
Many many thanks for your kind words. Above all for the accuracy with which you describe Villa Scacciapensieri : every detail is correct.... it's like stepped back in time indeed ! You understood what we are and seem to have immersed yourself into our peaceful, serene and charming world of old times . We promise that we improve with air conditioning. We do hope you will return soon!

Best regards,

This family run hotel makes you feels like you are going back in time with the old world charm. The hotel is located on a Tuscan hilltop just outside of Sienna (only a short taxi ride away). We enjoyed our days relaxing pool side with the sound of Cicadas all around. The lobby and lounge area are gorgeous. And the buffet breakfast in the garden was a great way to start the day. We highly recommend this hotel for couples or families that want to take a break from sightseeing and just relax.

A lovely hotel with great staff and a "old world" setting in the mountains. Pool is very refreshing, room was comfortable and the restaurant was first class. We would come back if we return to Siena, which is highly likely.

Dear Guest,
No words could be more pleasing and comforting to us. Yes, Villa Scacciapensieri takes you to "old world". And yet, certain values such as a deep relaxing silence, a sense of the value of time and true beauty, are eternal.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your sincere and lovely words. Do return soon!

We first stayed here nearly 40 years a go, and went again last week on a whim of nostalgia. It is a bit old fashioned, but the reception was warm, room was lovely (spectacular view and a nice bath tub, so rare these days), and a fabulous dinner starting with zucchini flowers and ending with the best tiramisu ever. Breakfast under the shady trees was delightful and plentiful. Service terrific. The concierge even helped with our plans as we were leaving -beyond the call of duty, but so nice! This is a great family owned hotel with character and charm. Wish we had stayed longer! I only give 4 stars because it isn’t super deluxe, but that’s not what we were looking for.

If you like to stay in no other hotels than a Hilton, a Hyatt or a Sheraton, then please do not go to this hotel. This hotel is different and it has really style and grandezza. It is unique and charming. The furniture is old-style, but in a good shape. The rooms are nice and well-preserved and nothing resembles one of the multinational good hotels that have high quality standards, but look all the same where ever you are in the world. We had the chance to have dinner at the restaurant of the hotel and it was a really good meal and a very nice and professional service. The hotel is just around 3 km away from Siena down town. The view from our room to Siena was astomishing. All prices were fair in our mind. The hotel has an own parking space that is for free. The hotel staff was very friendly. All was gentle and welcoming, we had nothing to complain. We will surely come back. But please bear in mind: it is not a Hilton, Hyatt or a Sheraton.
