Villa Porsenna

Your Tuscany villa is set majestically on top of a hill with commanding views over the Val di Chiana and the verdant Tuscan countryside, at the heart of the historic town of Cetona. The core of this superb residence is a tower built in the 11th century, around which an aristocratic mansion was built in the 1600s. Witness over the centuries to many stirring events, the villa has been recently restored by its aristocratic owners with a timeless style and grace.

Its colorful décor of superb antiques and fine fabrics creates a welcoming ambience that is certain to make you feel instantly at home. Grand eating and living spaces both indoors and out invite social gathering, while the large, luxurious, en suite bedrooms guarantee privacy and a good night’s sleep. This Tuscany villa is ringed by two acres of parkland replete with lofty trees and formal gardens, an enormous magnolia tree,  an elegant pool and even ancient Roman ruins. Where better to sample a taste of living history, and create a truly memorable Tuscan vacation?

Whatever you desire in your Tuscany villa vacation, our team will arrange it: transportation, babysitters, cooking classes, birthday celebrations, private tours – the list goes on and on.

Once you arrive in Tuscany, your Hosted Villas experience begins when your Local Host takes over—our staff members who live, work and have a wealth of insider knowledge about Tuscany.

Our Local Hosts are what truly set us apart from the rest. They aren’t just the typical on-site concierges. They don’t just serve as tour guides. We think of our Local Hosts as so much more. Using the Tuscany vacation itineraries you created with your Experience Manager, our Local Hosts get to really know and build relationships with our guests so they can serve as more of a friend in the area.
