The large kitchen upstairs complete with 2 gas-cooker, dishwasher, microwave, 2 large fridges, industrial oven etc..., is perfect to prepare meals for your group or if you rather would not think about cooking, take advantage of our cooking service.

The 5 hectare Garden is completely fenced and offers many places for the complete group but also the cosy spots under Olive trees, in hammocks or under a pergola to enjoy your quiet time of the day.

The Swimming pool is located in the upper part of the garden and you have views to Sinalunga and the lovely countryside. The pool is approx. 10x15 meters and up to 1.5 meter deep. Its also completely fenced and can be locked in case you have very young children. For our youngest guests we offer also an inflatable Baby-Pool. In the Pool House you will find many water toys, lilos, a fridge to keep the drinks cool, a music system, Shower and WC as well as tennis racquets, balls and other games to play on the tennis court which is behind the pool.

The children will play in the garden, use the slide and swing at our Play area as well as feeding our animals and collecting the fresh eggs for your breakfast.

We have also an outdoor riding arena in the bottom part of the garden and one small pony for the youngest. We can organize lessons or rides out in the woods or just having fun cleaning the ponies.

For Barbecues we have a large wood Barbecue and you can also use the open fireplaces in the kitchen. For eating outside, the back Patio is the best place as it is all day shaded thanks to the large Pergola and you can enjoy the views to Sinalunga which are especially beautiful in the evening. There is also a brand new outside kitchen complete with gas cooker, oven, fridge, dishwasher etc... so you can prepare meals right there and enjoy the evening!

There are several walks around the property and you can even reach Sinalunga to enjoy a coffee or gelato at the Piazza.

Villa Scopetello is a self-catering Villa with the little bit of extra service as we can help you to organize a lot of your holidays from the first moment and will look after you during your stay such that you do not miss anything.

2016 we spent a lot of 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 single and 143 double players international) to come to Scopetello and challenge the ambitious players or give Tennis lessons!

OUTSIDE KICTHEN:

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...

HOT TUB:

At the back Terrace of Villa Scopetello, in a private corner you can enjoy now all year round a relaxing bath in our new Hydrojet Hot tub. Perfect for a couple but can 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.

Dream Wedding in a Dream Location

  • 5 of 5

When my now husband and I decided to get married in Italy, we had no place where to start. Almost immediately after we started our search, we found Villa Scopetello. Based on the reviews, it almost seemed to good to be true. And when it came right down to it, it was even better than we could have imagined.

From the minute you enter the property, you feel the magic of this place. The setting is unreal--for a group that has traveled around the world, this was honestly one of the most beautiful, peaceful places we'd ever been.

We had a total of 24 people staying at the Villa, and we had plenty of room to spare. We never felt crowded, and each couple had all the privacy they needed.

We chose to have our wedding, dinner and party at the Villa, and we are SO HAPPY we did. From the ceremony to the flowers to the prosecco reception, to the dinner and then dancing, it was a total and complete dream come true.

The location of the Villa is ideal. It is an easy drive to Montepulciano, Florence, Sienna, etc.

The food was DELICIOUS and Sonja is incredibly kind, gracious and talented. She made everything so easy.

If we could give Villa Scopetello 10 stars, we would! We cannot recommend this location highly enough. We are already planning our next visit!

Unforgettable Week in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Villa Scopetello lives up to all of the 5-star reviews on VRBO. I reserved the villa for one week at the end of April to celebrate my 50th birthday, and 20 of my friends came to celebrate with me. Our hosts Sonja and Michael took very good care of us. They were attentive to all of our needs, and made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived. On the evening of my 50th birthday, my friends paid for a multi-course dinner at the villa, and Sonja and her team prepared a delicious and unforgettable meal for all of us. The villa sits in a beautiful location with an incredible panoramic view of the rolling hills from the back patio. I highly recommend requesting the breakfast service every morning. Sonja and Michael serve an incredible breakfast (complete with made-to-order omelettes) on the outdoor (covered) patio. It is a great way to start the day with your friends and family at the villa. While staying at Villa Scopetello, we took several day trips to enjoy local wineries and visit some of the most beautiful town in Italy (i.e. Montepulciano, Siena and Pienza), but we also spent a few days just relaxing at the villa and these were some of my favorite moments - so peaceful and relaxing. If you are looking for a well-appointed villa with hosts who are passionate about taking care of your needs, then I highly recommend staying at Villa Scopetello.

BEYOND Phenomenal!!! You'd be crazy not to book!

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning a large group vacation, I truly cannot sing the praises of Villa Scopetello and its wonderful caretakers, Sonja and Michael, enough! I would go back in a HEARTBEAT! We stayed for two weeks in September 2017 and had 20 family members the first week and 20 friends the second week and everybody has continued to rave about this villa. It is so well-equipped to cater to large groups, and it’s just beautiful. The photos don’t begin to do it justice. There are multiple kitchens, with more than one fridge in each, which is great for big groups. There are tons of bathrooms for everyone and lots of showers, not just tubs. There is SO much to do on this property, it actually makes it really hard to leave! There are hammocks all over, the pool is ENORMOUS with lots of seating around it. It’s equipped with a pool house that has a toilet, shower and fridge for drinks, so you don't have to constantly run back to the house. The tennis court is great, we played soccer on it. There is golf, ping pong, a pool table, a zip line, a fire pit, and wonderful places to sit and chat all over the property.

Sonja and Michael are absolute MAGIC. They are the best hosts in the world! They are hilarious and such lovely, fascinating, caring, hospitable people. We actually hung out with them most nights and had a ball! Sonja is honest to goodness, one of the most talented chefs I have EVER experienced. Her Italian food is the stuff of dreams! She prepares multiple courses of gorgeous dishes that could seriously be on the cover of a magazine. We were in Tuscany for a total of three weeks, and Sonja’s food was, by far, the best we encountered. Just amazing!

The property is covered in stunning olive trees, which just feels exactly as Tuscany should. They installed the B-E-S-T invention on the face of the planet…A WINE WALL in the back terrace. It’s literally a spigot that comes out of a wall and you walk up with your glass, turn it and red wine comes out. Brilliant!

There is the most breathtaking hotel called Locanda dell’Amorosa just a 10 minute walk through some lovely woods and hillside vineyards, it’s like a quintessential Tuscan hotel that is so picturesque, it feels like a movie should be filmed there. The hotel has a restaurant and a wine bar and so nice to be walking distance.

The villa is also reasonably close to many beautiful hillside towns that make great day trips.

Villa Scopetello gets 15 stars out of 5! I hope everyone gets the chance to go.

Memories by the Minute

  • 5 of 5

Words on paper don't express our stay and our wedding celebration at Villa Scopetello. Beyond being a beautifully well maintained home and property, Sonja and Michael made our stay incredible. First the villa, gorgeous and super clean. The beds were very comfortable and bathrooms were perfect. All three kitchens were very clean and well stocked. The grounds were manicured perfectly. Sonja and Michael have horses, chickens and ducks on property which made us feel very much in the Tuscan countryside. Inviting views and beautiful sunsets. As for our hosts, supremely accommodating. We planned our wedding with 21 guests via email and a only one phone call. Sonja is a master at details and Michael is a master with jumping in to help. They really want you to have the best experience possible. We organized breakfast and dinner nightly with endless wine, beer and prosecco for the week. Every single item that came out of the kitchen far surpassed the previous. Sonja is an incredible chef and a master at creating a menu that never repeated - very well balanced. There wasn't one thing that we asked for that wasn't delivered. We wanted a very special set up of our ceremony and our wedding dinner that was new to the villa and it was all delivered impeccably. Our memories were made at Villa Scopetello minute after minute - for us as well as for all of our 21 guests. The villa is perfectly located - not too far from Siena and not too far from wine tastings. I would repeat the entire week again and again - which I am sure I will due during my daydreaming moments. Run, don't walk to book this treasure. Your memories will last a lifetime.

The villa was beautiful and as others have mentioned even better in person than pictures convey.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 15 which was perfect and allowed couples to have enough space and their own bathroom.

We had gorgeous evenings that started outside with the red wine tap and ended by the fireplace. I recommend getting breakfast catered each day and the pizza and pasta dinners were both terrific. Sonja is a great cook.

Sonja set up a great wine tour with the best lunch of our trip at Podere Il Casale.

Michael provided great information on sinalunga, Pienza and Siena and helped us out with a ride to town and to the train station when we were stuck.

Michael and Sonja make sure you have what you need and go out of their way to help guests. It was a magical trip.

Wonderful villa! Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Villa Scopetello. We were a party of 3 families with children and 3 other single adults. The villa was beautiful and spacious with plenty of things to do for both children and adults. We loved everything about it- the pool, soccer/tennis court, zip line, ping pong and pool tables, fruit trees, hammocks, horses and other roaming animals like ducks and chickens, and of course the adorable dogs... Sonja and Michael were wonderful hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. They prepared a delicious dinner and breakfast for us, and helped us with restaurant recommendations and reservations. Thank you! We hope to be back some day!
