Villa Scacciapensieri is a charming, family-run hotel just north of Siena, meaning the city is a short taxi or bus ride away. Originally a 19th Century villa, the owners have tried to keep its original charm and have carefully decorated throughout with pieces in keeping with a time gone by. Guestrooms are traditional and based in either the villa, or in the more newly built annexes.
The villa is set in a large park, with manicured gardens offering little spots to sit and relax. There’s a pool in the grounds with sun loungers and tennis courts for those that want to be more active. Guests are also welcome to dine at the hotel’s restaurant, where you’ll find traditional Tuscan cuisine and a warm hospitality.
