*** NEWS 2016***

2016 we spent afford and time in making Villa Scopetello even better.

We have a brand new Tennis court which is built with sand filled Synthetic grass (Astro turf)! Further to that we could strike a deal with Diego Alvarez, a former professional Tennis player (number 216 singler and 143 double players international) to come to Scopetello and challenge the ambitious players or give Tennis lessons!


No need anymore to run up and downstairs to set the table at the back pergola. Right next to the Pergola we have created an outside kitchen complete with gas cooker (5 flames) oven, fridge, sink, dishwasher and of course all glasses, plates, cutlery etc...


At the back Terrace of Villa Scopetello, in a private corner you can enjoy now all year round a relaxing bath in oiur new Hydrojet Hot tub. perfect for a couple but acn seat also 4 to 6 people. With the downstairs kitchen next to it, the way is not far for a nice drink, while relaxing in up to 40 degree warm water and watching the stars in the sky or the lights of Sinalunga. The Hot tub is heated from September to beginning of May! The rest of the year, lets call it "Cold Tub" which will be refreshing in the summer months and equally relaxing and joyful.

Absoutly stunning

  • 5 of 5

Where to start - Sonja and Michael went above and beyond to make me and my families feel welcome and helped us with anything we needed - taxi's, food, recommendations for places to eat or places to go. They even sat with us in the evening to enjoy a glass of wine with us. They are the most welcoming people I know and made the holiday extra special. On top of this the Villa is the most stunning place I have ever stayed and they made our dream come true with creating the most beautiful wedding for us. From decorations to fireworks, the day was spectacular. I cannot recommend this Villa enough - you don't just get a luxury retreat in Italy - you get to meet and make friends with a lovely couple and there two dogs! :-)

Wonderful Tuscan Villa

  • 5 of 5

I’ll make this easy for anyone looking for a villa in Tuscany. Villa Scopetello is simply wonderful.

The villa is spacious, clean, comfortable, and above all, charming. It’s full of so many interesting rooms and spaces, it allowed our large group of five families to each have privacy, yet also had amazing communal spaces for doing what we do best: eating, drinking, laughing, and enjoying the storied Tuscan landscape. It’s the perfect blend of indoor and outdoor spaces.

The grounds are lush and beautiful: indoor and outdoor kitchens, covered patios, vineyards, horses, swimming pool, tennis court, hiking trails, even a zip line! The views are stunning, and the close proximity to Sinalunga, and easy drives to Siena, Multipulciano, Pienza and many other hilltop towns make the location ideal.

But perhaps our favorite part of Villa Scopetello was the flawless care and concierge-level service from Sonja and Michael. First off, they let us know they would be there when we needed them, and invisible when we didn’t. That was true, but we found we loved having them around. They cooked wonderful meals, gave us unique sight-seeing advice for the region, they even took us to the hidden gem local wine shop in Sinalunga (where all the area restaurants get their vino della casa). They even graciously gave up a few late nights when we invited them to drink wine with us under the stars. Like the villa itself, they are fun and interesting and a joy to be around.

You will love this place.

Exceed all expectations and much more

  • 5 of 5

I not sure there is much more I can add to all the other brilliant reviews! We were a family of 18, including 9 children and Villa Scopetello was so perfect for us all in every way, from the wonderful Sonja and Michael, the rooms, swimming pool, gardens and the animals.

Sonja cooked for us every night and every night is was something different, delicious and exciting.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this villa to anyone. So hope one day to return. Thank you Sonja and Michael X

Beautiful villa to take in the Tuscan countryside!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Villa Scopetello as part of a large group to celebrate our friend's special birthday. We knew it would be fun and beautiful, but we didn't expect such a personal experience! In addition to a gorgeous property and great location for day trips, Sonja and Michael were remarkable hosts. They fed us several delicious and authentic home-cooked meals, provided recommendations, arranged activities, and were super fun to socialize with. The villa has about a dozen bedrooms, a few common areas, two kitchens, balconies, a large patio, a lovely pool, walking trails, and basically lots of space to relax and take in the Tuscan countryside. We spent a really special week at the villa with spectacular views and great company-- we didn't want to leave!

Under the Tuscan Sun, Moon and STARS!

  • 5 of 5

We had reservations about booking such a beautiful, enchanting villa over the internet. With all the 5-star reviews, we trusted we'd be in for an adventure, and we were blown away upon arrival. My husband turned 50 and we invited a total of 21 people to join us at Villa Scopetello. The pictures just do not do this location justice. Sonja and Michael are incredibly hospitable, relaxed, jovial and a delight to be around. The bedrooms are well placed in the villa. Everyone had space to relax, spend time alone, be a part of the group, play tennis, swim, pet the horses, go on walks, eat, drink and be merry! We had set-up a pizza party on the first night for our guests. The kids loved it; the adults loved it. Sonja cooked an incredible cingalle dinner for us the next night with 3 courses. What we didn't expect was Sonja offering to cook lunch and BBQ for us on separate occasions. If Sonja offers to cook DO NOT SAY NO!! She has a perfect culinary hand. We had time to go on day trips and plenty of time to lounge. I personally wish we stayed at the Villa with a Campari Spritz, in the pool. 2 of our friends booked for 2018!! We may be back sooner than we expected.

Embrace and ENJOY Villa Scopetello. It is the perfect getaway in a lovely town.

Everything you want it to be

  • 5 of 5

This place is great - exactly what you'd hope a 400 year old Tuscan villa will be. Incredible views, particularly from the upstairs balcony and the pool.

It isn't a 4-Star Luxury hotel like you'd find in Rome or Florence, so don't come here if that's what you're expecting. The place is very clean. But it's out in the country, so occasionally some dirt will track in, or the dogs (Jesse and Mulder, both awesome) will pop in during dinner to say hello. But big-city luxury isn't why you go to the Tuscan countryside. You go for good food, a relaxing atmosphere and great people, and that's exactly what Villa Scopatello provides.

The best part of this place was the hosts, Sonja and Michael. Their English is flawless (Michael grew up in England) and they understand exactly what their guests want. Need to book a couple of vans so that you can all go out and drink Chianti during dinner? Need to set up babysitting? Want a tour of Siena? Or recommendations to watch soccer with locals in Sinalunga? They'll sort out all the details for you, giving you all the advantages of their local knowledge. Plus, they're fantastic people, and Sonja is an excellent cook.

Couldn't recommend this place more highly.

Villa Scopetello....one of the most renowned villas in the heart of Tuscany. 5 hectares

secluded hilltop acres of beautiful traditional Tuscan landscape with olive groves, grape vines, and spectacular panoramic vistas. Whether you spend your day swimming in the pool and soaking in the hilltop views, playing tennis on the private court, lounging around the 800 meter squared, 700 year old villa, or strolling through cobblestone streets of the nearby medieval villages, Villa Scopetello will greet you each morning with unparalleled beauty and calm.

Close to Siena, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Pienza and other lovely Tuscany cities and villages.

Sinalunga is a typical Italian town where you can get everything you may need for your stay. 3 good sized supermarkets, Bars, Restaurants, Theater, Butcher, Market (Tuesday mornings) etc... Our guests enjoy Sinalunga because it is not a tourist town and you will experience 'real Italians' who are always friendly and helpful.

Golf: The next Golf Club is just outside Sinalunga in the middle of picturesque Tuscan countryside.

Golf Club Valdichiana is a 9 hole course.

The course also has a driving range with golf professional available for lessons and supervision for golfers of all abilities.

Clubs, trundles and golf cars can be rented on site.

Ski: Monte Amiata is a friendly place. Although the skiing is limited if you like lots of runs. The slopes are well looked after and it will take approx. 5 to 10 min to run down.

Food on the mountain is very good and has great value for money. Monte Amiata is perfect for everybody who is looking for a bit less mainstream than the Alps and just looking for chilled out skiing day.
