Beautiful and typical villa with private swimming pool with panoramic view over the village of Torrita di Siena. Small pets are welcome. Furnished in rustic Tuscan style, well equipped and tastefully finished.


Villa Scianellone is an ancient stone and brick villa in a privileged, hilly and panoramic position. You will be able to fully experience a building whose origins date back to the 14th century and which preserves intact its original structure with its terracotta floors and brick arches, a plunge into the past, into the ancient Tuscan peasant traditions.
The villa is set in an enchanted place, shrouded in peace and tranquillity, where you can relax and enjoy the harmony and serenity of the Tuscan landscape.

You will find Villa Scianellone 1.5 km from the town of Torrita di Siena, a characteristic and turreted medieval village. In the village you will find shops, restaurants and services of all kinds. If you like walking, the village can also be reached on foot, and we certainly recommend spending an evening there, for dinner out or for an aperitif in one of its ancient and particular piazzas.
In a few minutes by car you can reach the beautiful villages of Montefollonico (10 km) and Montepulciano (12 km), which are well worth a visit and a stop, where you can taste the typical dishes and above all the prestigious and renowned wines of the area such as the 'Nobile di Montepulciano'.

Villa Scianellone is surrounded by lush, silvery olive groves, vineyards and meadows that are part of the property. All around the villa you will find a large and well-kept garden (about 5,000 m2), where you will find a cool pine forest equipped with games for your children and the beautiful swimming pool (size 5x10 m - depth 1.20 - 1.80 m - open from 01st May to 30th September).

In the pool's solarium your lazy days will flow by in the warm summer air. For your open-air dinners and grill parties there is a comfortable wooden porch, table, benches and barbecue. Even your small four-legged friends will be welcome at Villa Scianellone.

Ein sehr gepflegtes, sehr schönes Haus mit riesigem Garten und schönen Pool mit prima Aussicht, Netter Kontakt mit den Vermietern.

We had an excellent time staying at this family home with an amazing view of Torrita di Siena. Great access to many popular hill towns (Cortona, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, etc). The house and property are beautiful, very private and populated with song birds and olive trees. The hosts are charming and very welcoming. They provided us with all the recommendations we needed and were readily available whenever we wanted to communicate with them. The house is well appointed and has multiple ways to cook from gas range to pizza oven and wood fired grill. I really liked using the giant pinecones as fire starter. We would definitely return and hope to. Such a precious slice of paradise.

 Michael (Germany) - aprile 2022

We enjoyed this wonderful villa in a group of 9 people. As the weather was chilly we used the open fireplace in the large living room. We enjoyed cooking in the very good equipped kitchen which had enough dishes for all of us . The rooms are elegant and functional, the design looks like the family moved out only a few days ago and not steril like in a hotel. Mauro, the owner, and his wife are very engaged and helpful and take lovely care of house and the large garden. It was a great stay and we do recommend this wonderful house!

Nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour dans cette villa. Le confort, l'aménagement, la piscine et l'espace à disposition contribuent à rendre cette expérience unique. Une mention particulière aux propriétaires, toujours disponibles et sympathiques, ainsi que l'emplacement idyllique du lieu. A titre indicatif nous étions 6 adultes et 2 enfants de 1 et 3 ans.

Best way to enjoy Tuscany

We have nothing but great things to say about Villa Scianellone. There were 8 family members and we utilized the entire house and has plenty of room. We cooked dinner 4 of the 6 nights we were there and found the kitchen had everything we needed. We did have to buy paper towels, Toilet paper and trashbags. The views were amazing as we sat by the pool to enjoy apertivo before we had dinner at the big table outside. Make sure you follow the directions they send you vs Google maps to find the place. It is centrally located and we were 15-45 min from everything we wanted to see (Siena, the Lake, Montepulciano Val d Orcia). We were there during a heat wave and I asked the owner if he had fans and he did get enough for each room that helped. The beds were not the most comfortable as they were a bit hard. We had an issue with the water pressure the first few days but the owner had someone there to fix it first thing Monday morning and issue was resolved. We are looking forward to going back and would definitely recommend this place.

Everything worked out well for our family’s week at VS: Very good house, grounds, location in Tuscany with access to other interesting towns, wineries and restaurants. Owners were a surportive, daily unobtrusive presence. Highly recommended.

Forrygende sted

Alt klappede som det skulle. Værterne var utrolig venlige og kom med grøntsager fra haven, men trængte sig iøvrigt ikke på. Byen Torrita har en begrænset interesse. Man kan dog se indflydelsen fra Siena på våbenmærkerne. Men det var varmt og poolen var saliggørende med flot udsigt over Torrita. Gode resturanter i og omkring byen.

Patz für 10 Personen

Die Villa ist sehr gepflegt. Der Pool wird täglich gereinigt. Auch der (große) Grill wurde vom Hausherrn nach unserem Gebrauch wieder gesäubert. Eine Tüte Holzkohle war bei Einzug schon dabei. Beim Haus waren auch 3 Fahrräder - keine Sportqualität, eher was fürs Brötchenholen. Sehr eindrucksvoll ist der Blick über den Pool auf die erhöhte Altstadt von Torrita, die man auch in ca. 20 min Fußweg erreichen kann. Dort gibt es aber keine Restaurants, sondern nur Bars, einen Alimentari und einen sehr guten Metzger. Zum Essengehen muss man fahren, da gibt es nichts fussläufiges. Am nächsten: Il Brigante Gentiluomo auf der Str. nach Sinalunga - dort auch Takeaway Pizza. Etwas Besonderes ist die gestylte Stallung in Fraatta (La Toraia)mit viel Beef von lokalen Rindern. Etwas weiter außerhalb sind wir gerne in Macine auf dem Weg nach Montefollonico. Als etwas Besonderes hatten wir für 1 Abend "Chef in Villa" bei Eurocasa gebucht. Wer viel und gut essen will - das Geld ist es wert. Man wird in 4 Gängen mit lokalen Spezialitäten bekocht und bedient.

Fantastic stay

We had 7 adults & 4 children stay at this magnificent villa for a week in early July 2017. The villa is in a great location, with easy access to a nearby village with restaurants, supermarkets, etc. The villa exceeded our expectations. It was very comfortably furnished and well equipped. There was plenty of space for all of us. The views were amazing and there were places of places to stroll around. Olive trees and grapevines were in abundance, with a lovely vegetable & herb garden, which we were generously offered to utilise. We took the option of having a meal cooked for us one night by the very obliging Walter and we were served a magnificent and very generous meal, which we all thoroughly enjoyed. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday, or looking for a great base to explore Tuscany. Thank you to Elisa for always responding quickly to our emails and being very helpful and obliging.
 Paul (United Kingdom) - luglio 2017 An excellent week (late July) in a most outstanding property - as others have said, the photos do not do it true justice. Family (9 adults, a 6 year old grandson and a 5 month old granddaughter and a dog) from all over the world gathered for a most memorable holiday. The villa, its expansive grounds and locality were everything, and more, that we could have hoped for. Sincere thanks to Ilaria (host) for her warm welcome and assistance and her wonderful parents who, daily and totally unobtrusively, tended the grounds, cleaned the stunning pool and even cleaned the BBQ! I cannot speak highly enough of what we experienced and unreservedly recommend Villa Scianellone as a perfect place from which to enjoy Tuscany.

Magic Villa in the heart of Tuscany

We where 9 persons staying at the Villa for a week. Still early April so the pool was not available. Everything at the Villa was to our satisfaction. Everything was very clean and the garden was tended to every day. The view from the pool area is fantastic. Help for anything was never more than a phone call away. We used three offers from eurocasa and they where all fantastic. We had a half day wine tour to montalcino and tasted the famous Brunello wine. We also had a chef who came to the Villa and made a fantastic 4 course dinner for a very affordable price, and taking care for allergies that some of the guest had. We even got a norwegian speaking guide in Siena for half a day. (Go there, it is a must see!) We really loved our stay and are sure to return the next time we travel as a large group. Thanks to Ilaria, who are a fantastic host and owner of this Villa, and last but not least at lot of love to Michela at Eurocasa who is just fantastic and helped us out with everything before and during our stay. You will love your stay here at this beautiful Villa!
G. Marc (USA) - settembre 2016 Villa Scianellone was wonderful. It was as nice or better than the photos and in a very private setting. The owners were very nice and great on our arrival and departure. We had a great week and certainly would recommend this villa to family and friends.
Nitzan Shmuel (Israel) - aprile 2016 Excellent place, exactly as described and even more. I'd absolutely recommend the villa to my friends! Thank you.

Pictures of this villa before booking for a week made us dreaming. When arriving in this villa we found a house much more nice than expected ! Grand-father, children and grand-children were enthusiastic when being around the pool or when sharing wonderful dinners on the covered terrace. For sure we will come back within some years. Ideal location when part of the family likes to spend time for a rest around the pool and others like visiting famous cities such as Pisa, Assisi or Firenze. Many thanks to Mauro and wife for their kindness and gifts they let on the table (tomatoes from the garden) when we were still sleeping. We strongly recommend this villa for a family with children.

à recommander

Une merveilleuse villa dans un endroit magnifique, des propriétaires adorables, à recommander les yeux fermés. Attention cependant aux chambres du dernier étage qui conviennent davantage à des enfants.
Samson Pierre (Canada) - luglio 2014

Fantastic location

Just a fantastic location. The villa is in great shape and the owners are on site every morning to clean the pool, clean the BBQ and fill up with wood and address any issue that may arise. All in all we can not think of anything negative to say. Pierre S.
L. Ursula (AUSTRIA) - luglio 2014 Wir verbrachten eine wunderschöne Woche in der Villa Scianellone. 2 Familien mit Kinder kamen alle voll auf ihre Kosten. Unbschreiblich schön ist nicht nur das sehr alte große Haus (Villa) sondern auch die riesen Parkanlage mit hunderten Olivenbäumen. Das ganze Areal befindet sich auf einem Hügel, somit geniesst man eine Traumaussicht auf das gegenüber liegende Dorf Toritta di Siena und sogar Montepulciano kann man noch erkennnen. Der Pool ist größer und schöner als er im Internet erscheint und wurde immer frühmorgens um ca. 5.30 vom Eigentümer gereinigt- ein tolles Service! Überhaupt sind die Eigentümer sehr herzlich und man merkt, dass ihnen dieses Haus samt den Besuchern sehr am Herzen liegt. Wir kommen wieder! 2 Familien aus Österreich:)
