The four star hotel “Villa Scacciapensieri” is ideal for clients looking for a peaceful, warm and cordial atmosphere.. Location : the hotel is set in its own large park and gardens on top of a little hill only 2.5 km north of the medieval city walls of Siena, 1,5 km from the train station, just on the border of the Chianti wine region; all the main sights of Tuscany are easily reached. There is a very regular public bus service from the Villa to the historical centre every 15 minutes (on weekends twice an hour, after 8 p.m. once an hour). The main villa, constructed in the late 1790s – early 1800s, has rooms on the two upper floors, while the reception desk (24 h.), " the cosy bar-lounge with open fire place and library, the private little chapel and the media-room with Internet access are all located on the ground level. There are two annex buildings "Limonaia" and "Villino" both very close to the main Villa. All rooms are air-conditioned. The outdoor swimming pool (open from May to October) overlooks the Chianti hills. We also have a tennis court, bicycles and parking for the exclusive use of our guests, there is no charge for these facilities. Garages are available on request (Euro 20/night).

Villa Scacciapienseri is a place with lots of Tuscan atmosphere. Placed in the suburbs of Siena it is close to the historic center, yet placed with a beautiful view to the Tuscan country side, whether you are in the room or dining at the outside terrace. Service is nothing less than excellent, warm and embracing, walking the extra mile for the customer. We had some unexpected challenges during our stay, which the staff kindly helped us overcome and for which we are truly grateful. Dining at the restaurant is also worth a recommendation. We had a delightful dinner under the trees in the sunset with excellent courses and splendid timing from the staff. Thank you Scacciapenseri. We warmly recommend you to anyone considering a stay at the Siena area

*** WARNING *** This hotel is FRAUDULOUS. I have booked a stay in August 2020. The day before my arrival, I have sent a email to confirm my arrival time and I have got an automated message that says that the hotel was closed! I have got no email message, no phone call or whatsoever. I have sent emails and emails to get refund and I have go no answer for more than 4 months. Then, a man, that introduces himself as the new property owner, proposed me a voucher but does not want to refund! This guy is communicating with the official email of the hotel, he can issue voucher, but guess what, he blames the old property. Don't looser your money, and find another hotel!

Will not recommend this hotel nor come back. Forced to avail more expensive room. Suggested also by Cecilia. Even asked her whats wrong with the room i got? Got charged for dinner i didnt avail. Just found out after checking out and left. Rooms a lot better in pictures. Location not so accessible. Use taxi. Bus not so frequent as Cecilia also mentioned. Breakfast same everyday. Service reception ok not warm. No dresser in the room. No table. Very small side tables. Double bed is 2 small single beds put beside each other. Pillows hard. Be wary of Cecilia. What she says is different from what other receptionists say. Other receptionists better. But i think she is the head or assistant to the owner? Not sure of her position. Otherwise, there is a dog gives a nice touch. Old wood furniture nice too! Villa is nice..

Another villa hotel that we loved as a family. Uma (the super friendly golden retriever mascot) sat at the front door to greet us. Rooms are spacious. Property is stunning. Gardens are beautiful. Restaurant food also superb. Staff also very friendly. Will definitely return

We stayed at Villa Scacciapensieri for 2 nights as a group of 3 friends. The hotel is quaint, and the staff were very helpful and friendly, particularly in the restaurant. We stayed in the more modern annexe building. The room was spacious and clean, set over two floors, and room enough for 3 people. The one complaint is that the walls were extremely thin! We could hear every sound from the business group next door’s night of “what happens on conference stays on conference”... there are also wooden stairs in each room and loud slamming doors which can take away from a restful night. Otherwise, a good value, well located hotel for Siena!
