We made an impromptu trip to Italy this May and had dreamed for years of seeing Sienna. With less than 2 weeks to plan, we knew we wanted to hit the Sienna region but didn't really know where to start. So, after scanning lots of reviews online, looking for a Villa close to Sienna with a pool and Tuscan style furnishings, we settled on Villa Curina. It was significantly less expensive than some of the really expensive famous ones, a little more than others, and it turned out to be PERFECT!
As we drove from Florence with two sets of directions and a GPS machine (all telling us slightly different directions), we began to worry a bit, as we wound through the hills. After driving the area, over a few days, we realized there were so many different routes, that any of those we had probably would've taken us there eventually.
Anyway, when we arrived, we were immediately taken into another world. It was not only beautiful but timeless with amazing details: rod iron mini tables setup overlooking the valley, opening windows and doors overlooking the pool and the valley, antique furnishings. And it was quiet, even though it sits next to the winding road. A 20 minute drive from Sienna, it was the perfect location.
I will also say that the food was amazing. I was expecting a continental style included breakfast, but it was a VERY complete and filing breakfast, typically filling us up until dinner, which was also amazing. We ate two nights at the on-site restaurant on covered patio overlooking the valley at sunset. The food was maybe the best we had in all of Italy, and the proprietor was so fun to chat with about food, Italy, etc. My mouth's watering as I type and think about it.
While the rooms were not "fancy" by Western hotel standards (super large beds and bathrooms), they were certainly comfortable and in keeping with the style of the Tuscan architecture. And, did I mention the views? You felt like it was your own villa. While I loved the site seeing, including some of the off the beaten towns the owner recommended, next time I'd make sure to have more down time to read by the beautifully landscaped garden and pool area. Villa Curina, we're sending all our friends, and hope to see you again!
