Description from the manager
La Villa di Corsano is situated in one of the most picturesque areas of Tuscany, at the start of the Sienese "Crete", that surreal landscape of wide, clay hills just South of Siena, a continual source of inspiration for artists over the centuries. Used on several occasions already by artists, photographers, historians and cooks for specialist courses, and the subject of prestigious coffee table books, this wonderful villa and its caring, professional owners and staff, are internationally renowned.
Approached by an impressive, cypress-lined avenue, the villa itself dates from the 16th. Century and the estate was once one of the most impo...Read more

What Past Guests Are Saying
50th wedding celebration with children and grandchildren
The best thing about the vacation were the two cooks who came in everyday to prepare marvelous dinners, serve them, and clean up afterwards. The Villa is so large that there was privacy for all families. Outdoors area were great for kids to explore but the pool was a disappointment as it hadn't been opened for the seasons and the furniture, cushions, and towels were in need of replacement. The town had a very good grocery store and restaurant. Town and church were in walking distance.
Full of character in the heart of rural Tuscany!
We were at Villa Corsano for a family reunion and my mother's 80th Birthday. Perfect for family reunions, it is a beatiful villa with loads of character dating back to the 9th century or so. Giacopo was great help, giving advice on what to do or where to go. And he also gave us a fascinating tour of the cellars and a rundown of the 11 centuries of history. Although we self catered, we had one evening dinner organised through him and the meal and service was fantastic..great food! Good size 'industrial style' kitchen needs a little orientation but we managed to turn out some great meals for all 24 of us. Lovely swimming pool, well maintained. Location is great, 10 minutes from the Coop supermarket and about 15 minutes to Siena. You can strike out from here to pretty much everything. Go ahead and book it, you'll love it. We did and have a thousand photographs to prove it!

Everyone agreed that Corsano far exceeded our expectations
Villa Corsano was the near perfect site for our family reunion. We brought our 3 sons and their families to Italy to experience the hills, the beauty, the food and wine and the opportunity for all of us to share something special. Our hosts were wonderful and provided us with everything we asked for. Our grandchildren range in age from 6 to 16, and we all had a terrific time.
Our dream villa
Fantastico, bellisimo, wonderful is what I would call our stay at the Villa Corsano. Madam Rosa and her son were invaluable with helping us navigate throughout Tuscany and especially in Sienna. Baruth, our man-on-site was fantastic. It was one of the most rewarding two weeks we have ever had. We hope to return some day.
Our only complaint was that it was hot on the third floor for people who were sleeping on that floor but I think Madam Rosa was considering air conditioning that level in the future.
Best vacaion EVER
Our family (20+ people) spent two glorious weeks at Villa Corsano. The accomodations were outstanding, everything you would want from a 300+ year old villa and more. Every room from the kitchen to the bedrooms to the bathrooms were exceptional. Everyone from Grandma and Grandpa to the teenage grandchildren rated the villa a 12+ out of 10, even the toddlers had a fabulous time. The wonderful family memories we created were priceless.
Beautiful Villa, beautiful grounds and so much to do in and around the surrounding area. We could be as busy as we wanted or have quiet days just relaxing by the pool.
Barath and Jacopo made sure we had everything we needed and were invaluable sources of information.
The Village of Corsano has many hidden treasures including a fabulous restaurant with THE BEST pasta dishes we have ever eaten.
Only a short car ride to Sienna and many other wonderful villages in and around the area. A train ride to Florence and many other destinations.
We will certainly be back to the Villa and hope that we can stay longer next time.
Charming country villa
We were a party of four families with 10 children, ages ranging
from 5 to 20yrs old. The pool was a nice feature, since the children
were able to play and relax there afterwards. If you are staying
there with young children who have not learned to swim yet, you
will need to supervise them, as there are no fences or gates to keep
them out of the pool area.
The rooms on the third floor were more like attic rooms, and in the
summer, it was quite warm, we kept all the windows open. The
windows do not have screens, and are low. Also something to
watch out for if you are staying with very young children. All the
rooms were quite spacious, most with high ceilings.
There was a dining room inside, but we ate outside everyday. We
used the kitchen quite a lot, and was happy to find it fully working
with pasta boilers and gas range.
The helper working for the owner was very helpful and cleaned our
rooms during the day when we were away sightseeing. The owner
lives in another section of the villa, and checked on us everyday to
help us arrange tours. He was very helpful and accommodating.
There was a washing machine on the third floor, but no dryer, so all
the clothes had to be dried out on the line in the yard. Hot water,
shower and bath all worked well. Clean towels and bed sheets.
There were a couple of stray cats on the property, and if you are
allergic to flea bites, do not feed them as this will encourage them
to follow you into the house. A few of us had flea bites that were
quite aggravating afterwards; the cat that we fed found its way into
the house one night.
There is a grocery store and a small pizza restaurant down the
street, a nice walk of 7 -10 minutes from the villa.
The property is beautiful and scenic. The villa has been well kept
for generations, with a very homey, warm atmosphere. The villa
was well suited for our large party of 18 people.
