Luxury Villas In Siena
Siena is, hands down, one of the most alluring Tuscan cities with similar architecture as its nearby and hugely popular sibling, Florence, and a unique sense of authenticity that fits like a glove to those after a 360 Tuscan venture. Although less touristy than other regions, Siena impresses with a rich culture and history, imposing castles and mediaeval walls, fortresses dating to the Etruscan times, and magnificent squares and cathedrals, such as the amazing 13th-century Gothic-style Duomo di Siena Cathedral and its intricate carvings, statues, frescoes, and mosaics.
Besides the iconic architecture and incredible landmarks, though, Siena is also located in the Chianti region, which is considered a wine-making mecca in Tuscany. Come in July or August to watch the widely-loved Palio di Siena historical horse race that takes place at shell-shaped Piazza del Campo twice a year along with thousands of people flocking from across the globe to be in it, in any shape of form!
Of course, the local flavours, such as the delicious pici (a slightly thicker version of spaghetti) served with black pepper and pecorino cheese, the open-air market, and the sublime luxury villas in Siena allow visitors to fully immerse in the local culture and the award-winning concierge services that complement perfectly every experience.

Do the luxury villas in Siena have air-conditioning?
Indeed, most of the properties in our Siena collection come with A/C units or underfloor cooling systems.
