Villa La Senaia is just 3 kilometres away from the lovely village of Castiglion Fiorentino which has all that one could wish for on holiday: local shops, supermarkets and great restaurants. Castiglion Fiorentino is very well located for visiting many of Tuscany’s jewels – Cortona, Arezzo, Siena and the spectacular countryside near Montepulciano are all within a short drive. Florence is either an hours drive or one can take the train. The charming owners live next door to the villa. However, the local village could well be your favourite of all these.

Lovely with one’s favourite view, a castle and a hill top town. We had a lovely holiday and all 3 generations appeared to love it. A very amusing owner who helped whenever asked.
Rachel Delaney, Gillingham
Just 5 minutes from local town with lots of choice for restaurants and bars, supermarkets etc. Views were amazing from the villa. Very helpful and friendly owner who was close by when needed but not intrusive. We had a great holiday and would recommend Villa La Senaia.
