About Dorita Anza
My husband and I love to travel. We traveled throughout Italy for several years, and fell in love with the Tuscany Region at first sight! We settled into the Sarteano countryside and have enjoyed renovating our new home. We set up our new house with some of the amenities and comforts that we enjoy and have added a modern decor to blend in with the old charm of the Tuscan decor. We hope to make our guests feel comfortable and provide them with assistance to make their stay the best as possible.
Dorita Anza purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Dorita Anza chose Sarteano
The property has a special charm which we love. It has a very serene, quiet and tranquil setting in the Tuscan Countryside. It is five minutes from the A1 Autostrada, which allows us to get to many major Italian cities, such as Florence, Siena, Rome and Perugia, It is a five minute drive to the historical town centre with several restaurants, cafes, shops, and supermarket. We like being in the country, but enjoy being close to town as well. We get to enjoy watching some beautiful sunsets from our Patio and Terrace.
What makes this Villa unique
Property is private and set among the Tuscan Hills. We enjoy waking up in the morning and seeing the beautiful views out our windows, and then watching the magnificent Sunsets in the evening. There are several wonderful Hot Thermal Springs within a short distance which we enjoy swimming and relaxing in. Waters have a therapeutic effect on the body and the skin. We can return back to the Villa and enjoy eating outdoors and having our local amazing wines while enjoying the beautiful views of Tuscan Hills.

This was very peaceful place to stay during our vacation to Italy. The home is very cute, well equipped and clean. Surroundings are very quiet. The outdoor space is nice. Dorita and Vincent were wonderful hosts! Dorita helped us find local grocery store and made other local recommendations and Vincent show us his treasure "Fiat 500-600 collection", I love it. We recommend this place

Wonderful Property with Gorgeous Garden
I’d highly recommend this property! The owners are very nice and were welcoming, showing us around the property and giving lots of suggestions re: restaurants, supermarkets etc. They had very kindly provided some water, fruit and a terrific bottle of local red wine! The property is next to the owners home but it is very private. The property itself was very spacious for two people, it was clean and well equipped. For me, the garden was the star of the show! It has a good sized patio with a covered section for shade and a lovely lawned area with sun loungers. The garden gets sun all day. The owner is obviously keen on gardening as it’s designed and maintained really well.
You definitely need a car if staying here. You can’t walk to any of the local restaurants or bars. Sarteano is about 3-4km away but on a road that’s possibly a little dangerous to consider walking due to the tight corners (and the crazy Italians driving!!)
All in all we couldn’t have been happier with this property and we will be certainly booking again in the future!
The house was comfortable, nice, clean and in a good location.
The house is very good. The owners was very welcoming and helpful. We had a really good time and recommend this house. We also appreciate the privacy we got.
But Please, Dorita, buy a new mattress for the bed!!! It is so important to have good night sleep, also in vacation. Thanks a lot for your lovely host.
Tali and Amir.
Thank you for your kind words on the comfort, cleanliness, and good location of our house. We strive to have our house be very comfortable and clean for our guests We also provide lots of privacy for our guests , but let them know we are available if they need anything. You acknowledged that you appreciated the privacy. I am confused about your complaint about the mattress. The mattress is new and you are the second guest to sleep on it. I also sent you a message a couple of days after your arrival to check on your stay and you responded that everything was very good. I wish you would have informed me of your concern over the mattress and we would have tried to address any issue and insured you were comfortable.
Wonderful place and wonderful hosts
My wife and I stayed in Dorita and Vincenzo's guest house for four nights in September and loved it. They were very helpful and gracious, and the house is spacious and very comfortable. We loved Tuscany and the convenience that staying in Sarteano provided for exploring the area during this part of our trip to Italy. Sarteano is close to the thermal springs in Chinciano Terme, and there are several good restaurants in the area. One that we particularly enjoyed on our last night there was Tuscany Divine in Chiusi, a short drive from the house. They had a great tasting menu as well as main courses and other options. Dorita can guide you well with other suggestions, in addition.
Perfect location for exploring Tuscany. Peaceful and serine view. Wonderful hosts!
We often rent homes/apartments for our vacations. This one ranks in the top tier. The hosts met us near the house to show us the way. They welcomed us with snacks, a bottle of wine, breakfast for the next day and wonderful suggestions, directions and hospitality.
This was favorite house house during my vacation to Italy. The home is very cute, well equipped, clean, and peaceful. Surroundings are very quiet. The outdoor space and view are breathtaking. There is ample outdoor space with seating to enjoy the scenery. Dorita and Vincent were wonderful hosts! Dorita helped us find local favorites at the grocery store and made other local recommendations. They even met us as the grocery store to help us find their place. These two are so hospitable. I hope to return!
