The 800 square meter large Villa with 12 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 living rooms, a billiard room, a bar and an office offers a lot of space to enjoy your time together and at the same time you will find always a quite spot to relax and enjoy your privacy.

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.

We offer a wide range of services such as cooking service, Wine tours, truffle hunts and many more if you wish so. We have also special deals for Company Retreats available and if you wish to celebrate your wedding at Villa Scopetello we have a very good caterer and wedding planer on hand or we can supply also everything you need in house.

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!


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 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.

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!

Villa Scopetello & Managers beyond 5 star rating!

  • 5 of 5

I felt like I was in the movie Under the Tuscan Sun! The Villa was spacious, clean and offered everything a family could need during the stay. The Managers, Sonja and Mike, are fantastic and have become friends of the family. The villa is well-maintained due to the true love and pride the managers have for their property. We'll be returning soon!!

A most beautiful place and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

The day we arrived at Villa Scopetello, we were told not to worry about anything. Sonja and Michael, our hosts, were not kidding! We were treated graciously, and all we had to do was ask if we needed anything. They were not kidding! Sonja and Michael treated us as though we were part of their family. We had such a relaxing time. The amenities were fantastic, the view was fantastic and the food Sonja prepared was awesome. A member of the group had a food allergy but didn't want to say anything. Well, Sonja found out and went out of her way to accommodate with gluten free food throughout the entire stay.

As we drove up to the Villa, all you could do was say Wow! The Villa itself was beautiful. There was so much available, such as a pool table, large rooms to gather in, a hot tub, fire-pit, horses, a large swimming pool, hot air balloon rides, walking among the vineyards, hammocks, and the view. What a view!

At night, we sat around the fire pit on blanket covered bales of hay and pillows, enjoying great conversation and watching the lightning bugs light up all around you. If you like animals, you’ll meet their two well behaved dogs, Scully and Jesse, their horses, ducks and chickens.

Our gracious hosts took us to some of their favorite local restaurants and wineries, in and around Sinalunga, Italy. These were an experience all to their own. The wine, food and ambience were fantastic.

We were there for a family wedding. Sonja and Michael took care of everything for the bride and groom. The wedding was well organized and beautiful, and the reception/dinner was delightful. Our hosts prepared all of the food, which was awesome.

All I can say is, if you are looking for a fantastic and relaxing time in the Tuscany countryside, this is the place. Just wait to be wowed.

Villa 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.
