Villa Cetinale is a 17th-century luxury villa in Tuscany. Built in the Roman Baroque style for Pope Alexander VII, this spectacular property is an ideal villa for large groups. A Tuscan country house with 13 bedrooms, it’s home to one of the most outstanding gardens in Italy. Located in a small hamlet 8 miles west of Siena, this rural villa boasts a swimming pool, tennis court, games room, children's TV room and exquisite landscaped gardens. It is fully serviced by a team of professional staff and a private chef for all meals.

The nearest airport to Villa Cetinale is Florence, which is about an hour’s drive away. The country house sits just outside the small village of Ancaiano, and is 5 miles from the historic town of Sovicille. The city of Siena is an essential stop during any stay in Tuscany. Just 30 minutes by car, this medieval marvel is famous for its gothic architecture, superb art collections and tempting cuisine.

Guests approach the villa through the immaculate gardens, lined with imposing cypress trees, to be greeted by ‘Spring’ and ‘Summer’, two statues by Giuseppe Mazzuoli. Inside the house, the bedrooms are sumptuously decorated, many with rich fabrics hanging from four poster beds. A chef and team of professional staff serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to guests either in the magnificent muraled dining room, or out on the vast lawn. Children will find plenty to entertain themselves in the TV and games rooms, with a Playstation, table tennis table and table football. Exclusive use of the garden, including its swimming pool and tennis court, will delight guests young and old.

The villa has recently undergone major refurbishment, fitting the property with excellent modern amenities while retaining its original character. Your host at Villa Cetinale is the local house manager who is on hand to oversee your stay and provide a comprehensive concierge service. The property is run to exacting standards with daily housekeeping, daily pool cleaning and a laundry service. Bed linen and towels are changed twice weekly and air-conditioning is available on request.

This family-friendly villa is well suited to weddings or any special occasion in need of an elegant setting. With a team of professionals on hand to create the perfect event, this ultra-luxury villa gives guests a unique opportunity to experience Tuscany’s history and landscape in style.
