This was our second time back to Sensano. The property and grounds still looks great. It was enjoyable to just relax at the pool and soak up the Tuscan sun. Federica and Lavinia were always there to help and so welcoming!!!

If you would like to have the right feeling what Tusciany’s spirit is, you will be at right place. Nice villa on the hill, the driveway lined with cypresses, the view of the surroundings and the best is inside, the service.

We stayed at Villa Sensano last week and it was a delightful experience. The property and grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The two sisters who run the villa were extremely friendly and helpful. I would recommend Villa Sensano to everyone.

A really beautiful property with wonderful garden and lovely pool. in the middle of nowhere but within easy reach of San Gim, Volterra and only 1.5 hours from Florence. we didn't use the facilities on offer but the little kitchenette would be perfectly satisfactory for a self catering holiday. the owners, 2 sisters, make you feel welcome and 'at home'....

The villa is located on a hill overlooking miles of unspoilt rural countryside. We had 'Rosa Tea' apartment overlooking the garden, which was comfortable and well appointed inside. Really enjoyed our short 4 day stay and wish we had just relaxed more here but had a busy itinerary to see as much of Tuscany as we could. Volterra, San Gimignano,... More

The rooms in which we lived for a small time (one week!) were nice, clean, no-nonsense, shaped with nice feeling for style. Historical, but totally clean. The rooms are in a historical setting on the top of a hill, from where you can overview a wide environment. The two women who cared for us were very nice and helpfull in... More

Villa Sensano is fabulous. Frederica and Livinia, the proprietors and onsite managers, were lovely hosts. We became fast friends, and I am coming back in August! The late-18th century building that hosts many of the rooms/apartments is so nicely appointed - one can really feel the old world Tuscan charm. The grounds are beautiful, with amazing views and a pool... More

A great find. Federica is a smart businesswoman and accommodating hostess, together with the assistance of her sister. They take great pride in this wonderful property, and Federica speaks English very well. The apartments are spacious and well outfitted.
