Description

 

This villa, built in the 17th century, is immersed in the quiet of the Siena hills, just 3 km far from the Siena. Surrounded by eight acres of olive groves, it enjoys spectacular views of the city where you can be enchanted at every hour of the day. In the square of the Villa there is also a small but delightful chapel preserved as in its origins, where it is possible to celebrate mass. La Strega is the manor house of a large agricultural complex, it forms part of the adjacent farmhouse that has been recently renovated as Agriturismo Di Charme. Villa La Strega, now for more than a century, when it was bought by the current family, it already brought this picturesque name "the witch". After a thorough research at the State Archives of Siena, we discovered its ancient and curious origin. In the eighteenth century a witch known in the area for its magic chord lived in this villa; this chord was able to move alone, bind and pull things. The story tells that, to those who tried to steal it, the witch did traps and tricks animating the rope. The Villa has been completely renovated recently and they worked with attention to maintain the original atmosphere by combining the needs of modern times and the soft elegance of Tuscany.

Werden vriendelijk ontvangen door een oudere Italiaanse dame die alles keurig in het Engels uitlegde qua codes voor het hek en de voordeur (veilig gevoel). Prima kamer en badkamer, uiteraard wat landelijker ingericht maar past bij de stijl van de villa en omgeving. Ontbijt was uitstekend, daarna de stad in geweest en bij terugkomst was onze kamer schoongemaakt en waren onze kleren zelfs netjes opgehangen. Diverse plekjes op het landgoed om te zitten en genieten van het uitzicht. Mooi en schoon infinity zwembad, heerlijk genieten van de avondzon op de patio. Aanrader voor stellen en gezinnen (ook met jonge kids).

Spent a week here in Jul 2018. This is a gorgeous traditional villa with views of a valley and the skyline of Siena.

The property belongs to the family who run the next door B&B (which is beautiful and also worth a look) and is lovingly furnished in antique furniture. It is grand yet cosy.


We had a beautiful traditional meal cooked for us by Letitza, we didn't have to lift a finger and they were sensitive to the Gluten Free needs of one of the party.


Evenings can be spent sittinga round teh large table under the canopy of a beautiful large tree with views of Siena, what more can you ask for? Well, you can ask for the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere but actually only being a 10 minute drive from Siena - best of both worlds!


Constructive criticism would be that the pool area could be improved by better landscaping, nothing major but it could be upgraded.


Would highly recommend for a big group of family and friends

We always go back for the best location for day trips all over Tuscany. 5 bedrooms and a marvelously furnished Villa. We plan to return again. Dinner overlooking the skyline of Siena, our favorite town in all of Italy.

I went to Villa La Strega for a week with 7 friends. The villa and grounds make you feel like you are miles away from civilization but are conveniently locates near Siena. Letitia and Antje made us feel very welcome and the highlight had to be when Letizia, Sophia and Stephania made us an amazing dinner. I can't wait to go back!
