About the property

Villa Senaia - Enjoy your stay

In stunning Tuscany, along its endless artistic heritage and countryside, where stretches of silvery olive trees stare after vineyards and cypress trees, lies the Villa Senaia.

An ancient stone farmhouse, located in a strategic position where it is easy to uncover many of the hidden and characteristic secrets of Tuscany and Umbria. The local atmosphere will leave you with unforgettable moments of quiet and relaxation, enjoying the colors, odours and unique sunsets.

Various paintings of flowers and colours of Tuscany hang on the walls bringing nature indoors. The living room is plain and simple, starting with the stone walls where the fireplace stands. Here you can take a relaxing break while watching satellite TV (with LCD player, stereo, VCR). The kitchen goes well together with the outside covered porch, with facilities for dining out in front of the swimming pool with a view of the entire valley.

On the ground floor you can also find a bedroom and a bathroom with shower. An external staircase leads to the balcony, two double rooms with shared bathroom and a bedroom with private bathroom and access to the loggia.

The villa offers a private garden surrounded by olive trees and Mediterranean plants. It contains an outdoor oven / barbecue to enjoy local food, a laundry room and private parking. The pool offers peace and tranquility in an attractive spot. (6 x 12 meters - 20 x 40 feet ca.) The whole property is well designed for the needs of guests on holiday. The owners, who live nearby, will welcome guests on arrival with a small buffet lunch which is always a great success. If you wish more privacy, the owners will not interfere with the guests' stay. In each case, for any need and help, the staff will be available on site every day.

The nearest town which has many restaurants and shops is only 3 km away and the cities of art & culture such as Cortona, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Siena, Florence ... can be reached in under an hour.The farmhouse Villa Senaia is recommended for all those seeking peace and tranquility, but also to those who want to explore Tuscany.

The family atmosphere and the helpfulness of the owners will help guests express their opinions and ask for advice especially for those who do not know the area. The guests can ask freely for information: from where is the nearest restaurant, the local post office to the trails for walkers etc.

About Giuseppe Baldetti

Hello everyone, my name is Giuseppe. I am a curious and cheerful person. Our family is lucky enough to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world: the Tuscan countryside. I know every corner of these hills, I'll be happy to show you routes and unusual places and reveal some little secret.

We like guests in our villa between Cortona and Arezzo, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards which I manage personally.

We love to share our knowledge and experiences with local people from all over the world.

Giuseppe Baldetti purchased this villa in 2003

Lovely, welcoming, authentic villa.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Senaia is all it is shown to be in the listing description and more! The views from the property are outstanding and a wonderful way to start each day. The entire atmosphere was so authentic and Giuseppe

was so friendly and helpful with information on sites to see, places to eat, (Muzicone was awesome) on food to try, wine, history of the region, any question we had. His lovely wife Laura, took the time to bake us a delicious torte for breakfast one day and she made limoncello for our final night. Very much appreciated as Laura was so busy with a brand new baby and their daughter Margaritta as well. Would highly recommend the chef night as well. Giuseppe and Chef Anna cooked us an authentic Tuscan four course meal, all done in our villa so we could see and participate. We enjoyed the pool, not heated so only when feeling brave, however the sun was very hot so it proved refreshing once in. Only suggestion might be a few pool amenities, noodles etc. and pool towels should be included ( were available but at a charge).

Overall, would absolutely recommend and hopefully we'll return.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

There were 5 of us staying here and everything was as we had wanted it. Giuseppe was very welcoming and kept a perfect balance between being available without being intrusive. We had a wonderful stay here and my only regret was only booking 1 week instead of longer.

One note of caution though. Out sat nav got very confused when we put the address in and took us on an interesting detour. I recommend using google maps to find the villa.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Villa Senaia and Giuseppe and Laura could not have been more accommodating. Everything was perfect at the villa and the pool and gardens were delightful!

There were lots of wonderful places to visit from Cortona which was approximately 20 mins away to Siena which was about an hour and twenty mins away, with many others in between! We spent 2 weeks alternating between the villa and touring around and the balance was just right.

We did take advantage of the Chef service one evening for a wedding anniversary celebration and Anna and Giuseppe did an excellent job. The food was delicious and the setting was just perfect!

All in all we would have no hesitation in recommending this property and hope to return one day in the not to distant future.

Geoff and Sue A.

Great location, comfortable home, warm hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 7 stayed at Villa Senaia for 5 nights in late April. It was the perfect location for day tripping around Tuscany. The home was big enough for all of us, and the views from the patio and pool of Castiglion Fiorentino were marvelous! Giuseppe was a wonderful host, available to help when needed. We did take advantage of the outdoor pizza oven and Giuseppe was ready to assist when our first pizza didn't turn out quite right. The convenience of having a washer onsite was also very nice. We hope to return some day!
