About Villa Cetinale


Villa Cetinale is an extraordinary villa in Tuscany. Originally built in 1680 it transformed the ruins of an Etruscan settlement into a Roman Baroque villa for Pope Alexander VII. This grandiose Tuscan villa fringes the equally historic walled city of Siena, and offers easy access to the archetypal Tuscan towns of Volterra and San Gimignano. Siena's world famous horse race, the Palio of Siena, was actually held in the property's wood on seven occasions because of riots in the city. So take care when out for a stroll!

The magnificent and extensive garden, with its climbing roses, vine-covered pergolas, antique statues and the Scala Santa (Holy Stair), has been called the epitome of garden design. It's one of the most beautiful gardens in Italy.

The garden and the private chapel in front of the main house provide the perfect setting for large family gatherings. Take a moment to sit in its magical spaces with a glass of Chianti, and consider the people who have sat here before you. They include the head of the Catholic church and British Aristocracy.

The villa has been immaculately restored to offer every modern amenity. It's interiors are sumptuous and elegant. A private swimming pool, tennis court and a full time staff ensure that your stay is comfortable.

Villa Cetinale is an grand and extraordinary house with a long and fascinating history. It's the perfect base for exploring the rest of Tuscany or simply celebrating an occasion in utterly splendid style.
