Villa Senese is an ancient mansion dating back to the eighteenth century, located in the heart of Chianti Senese, just 17 km away from Siena and 45 Km from Florence. It is located in a vantage position on a hill above the old town of Staggia Senese. Recently subjected to a fine renovation and restoration, that has enhanced typical charm of the Tuscan villas without altering the original structure, Villa Senese is today an ideal place to enjoy a pleasant and exclusive stay under the Tuscan sun and to visit the most important art cities of the area.

It was originally a manor to host the noble families during the hottest months of the summer. The villa has belonged to the same family for several generations and it is now managed by the young owner and his girlfriend who take care of their guests with attention and respect in a friendly and genuine family atmosphere. Its location in the center of Tuscany, a few km from the highway Firenze-Siena and near the historic intersection between Via Cassia and Via Francigena, makes Villa Senese the perfect location to experience the essence of Tuscany in the many enogastronomic, cultural and art-historical sites of the typical villages in the area.

Staggia Senese

The original Chianti, the area between Florence and Siena, is the heart of Tuscany, traditionally identified with a thousand-year-old history of wine-making, gastronomy, artisanship and culture. At the very center of this area lies the Chianti Storico consisting of the three municipalities Radda in Chianti, Gaiole in Chianti, and Castellina in Chianti. People in this area have cultivated the land and made wine and olive oil at least since Etruscan times.

The undulating hills form small, protected valleys with a unique, mild microclimate, which has made this area attractive since Etruscan and Roman times. Here we find a special flora and fauna and this is the reason for the high-quality wine and food products from this area. More than half of the Chianti, however, is woodland, which makes it perfect for outdoor activities.

Festivals, concerts, museums, exhibitions, fairs offer a wide range of cultural entertainment. The central position of the Chianti Storico allows for comfortable daytrips to Florence, Siena, San Gimigniano and Montalcino.

Medieval castles, churches, fortified hamlets, villas and farmhouses are scattered all over, making just driving around an experience in itself. A network of partly unpaved country roads invites to explore this beautiful landscape on foot, by bicycle or on horseback.

The Chianti being one of the most famous wine regions in the world means that wine tasting is a key holiday experience, whether visiting local wine festivals, touring wine producers, visiting enoteche, or simply choosing among the many local wines to go with a meal.

Eating out in the many little family restaurants gives a chance to experience local food specialties first hand. The welcoming and friendly atmosphere, the traditional Chianti recipes and the consistent high quality of the seasonal products all contribute to an enjoyable and relaxing experience.

Accommodation ranges from very elegant, high-end luxury hotels or rental villas, over agritourism and farm holidays to family run bed and breakfasts. A warm welcome and personal treatment is assured in any case, and as everywhere in Italy children are more than welcome.
