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.

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!

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.
