Il Sensale can be described as nothing less than majestic! This imperial home nonetheless retains an original farmhouse feel; set within the sweetest and verdant, rural spot, it offers a secluded, stylish idyll overlooking rolling acres of Renaissance landscapes.

This elegant, independent home imbibes all the natural beauty of the region, along with original rustic charm: farmhouse style terracotta sloping tiled roods, arches, pale olive coloured shutters, swaying poplar trees and views across olive groves and vineyards make this home every inch the tranquil yet tasteful haven it is.

The outdoors spaces are sumptuous; immaculately maintained lawns and gardens, offering an array of different levels, open lawns ideal for games and fun, or secluded nooks for romantic meals; wonderful poolside privacy by way of patio and lounging space, and at every turn, bright, fragrant flowering plants.

Set on its hilltop, the views are unparalleled, from every angle. Recently restored, to an impeccable standard, Il Sensale combines the rustic farmhouse theme with certain and unadulterated luxury, amid the undulating Tuscan hills surrounding this oasis of colour, style and charisma!

The full drive is scented with oak trees and lemon trees, sweeping up to this magnificent estate. The pool area is a rock-star-worthy affair; its glistening, pristine waters are framed by a sleek patio/ lounging space, with elegant day beds and parasols, with the finishing touch being the jacuzzi - the latter being an excellent evening temptation along with a glass of wine!

Il Sensale offers six bedrooms, and thus accommodates up to twelve guests. This home is ideal for those seeking a real retreat from the bustle of the crowds and stresses of the modern world - the entire lower ground floor is set up as a self-contained spa! Worthy of the A-list crowd, space provides Turkish baths, sauna, jacuzzi and wet rooms - what better way to enable the stresses of life to drain away in this peerless Tuscan escape!

Dining al fresco is a stylish affair, with the beautiful veranda, soaking up the fragrant breezes, whether it be breakfast after a swim in the dappled shade, or an evening meal with abundant local wines and Tuscan produce as the sun softens over the hills.

Every detail has been thoughtfully covered, for a truly glamorous stay: from billiards room to bar, from private television lounge to games room - guests will find it hard to venture out.

The interiors combine original, rustic farmhouse charm with sleek, contemporary fittings - the result being an understated luxury: a home full of character and style, where guests every comfort has been considered.

The living space is well proportioned, offering exposed timber beams, beautiful antique furnishings and lighting, along with luminous views of the surrounding countryside. The living room is comfortable yet cosy, while the dining space offers a stunning, light, monochrome room ideal for colourful and vibrant group meals.

Il Sensale is finished with its character and style; ended thoughtfully, with impeccable taste, sympathetic to the original building and architecture, yet offering every modern comfort, from wifi to coffee machine, to DVD television with satellite and dishwasher. This home is designed for guests every convenience while offering a relaxed and laid back a sense of luxury.

Original features such as exposed timber beams, flagstone flooring and original stone, along with a pretty, modern neutral palette of fresh whites, pistachio greens and greys, offering a home-like aura while being delightfully elegant, full of original charm and designer flair!

Elegant, classic, yet playful, the interiors offer a natural, low essential sense of luxury - with splashes of vibrant colour, uncompromising quality, yet an abundance of personality at every angle. The bedrooms are tranquil, calm and designed for ultimate restoration.

For a very authentic Tuscan experience, within easy proximity to all pre-eminent great Art cities of northern Italy, within comfortable and impeccably stylish surroundings, whether it be for a family or larger group, Il Sensale will meet guests every desire!

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • Set in a rural location, yet close to so much history and culture, not to mention markets, shops and beaches, a vehicle is a must!
  • The pool is open on a seasonal basis, and is shared with other apartments; each apartment has its towels and loungers
  • The entire home can be rented, or just a portion of it, meaning other guests may also be using the common spaces at times

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Il Sensale is ideal for children of all ages. The excellent, expansive grounds and lawns, with surrounded woodlands and many hidden spots for exploring, will offer hours of discovery and fun for children.

The pool is stunning, with elegant day beds and sun lounging space around it, children will enjoy hours of splashy fun, or perfect their moves while parents can look on, enjoying a cold beer or good book. The jacuzzi is always a hit!

For day trips, among the highlights for children in Tuscany, Pinocchio Park Collodi is a great day out - Collodi is home to a theme park dedicated to Pinocchi and his adventures, with activities like literary itineraries, buildings and sculptures set amidst the greenery, art exhibitions and illustrations, puppet making workshops and more. Rather than being a Disney style park, it is more a cultural and natural environment, very Italian in style.

Pistoia zoo is located in the hills near Pistoia and is one of the most famous zoos in Italy; covering a space of seven hectares and an array of species for a fun and educational day out.

The water park, Aqua Village is located in Follonica, near Grosetto, and offers a range of slides and rides from gentle toddler splash pools to more thrill-seeker level for older children.

From hiking, to horse riding, to waterspouts, to cultural heritage, children of all ages will learn so much from a visit to Tuscany: what could be more enchanting than a day of dolphin watching in the reserve known as Pelagos Sanctuary in Viareggio, followed by a meal in a local hilltop restaurant - offering sublime, flavoursome local specialities followed by fantastic gelato and cream filled pastry treats that the region is known for.
