Overview

Wedding Venue Pool Pets Welcome Hot Tub

Villa Aiala dates back to the XVIII century, located in the picturesque Crete Senesi, just half an hour from Siena.

Originally two large farmhouses, the renovation has been particularly well done with all modern amenities and rustic furnishings giving the villa real character and charm. The property sleeps 30 guests comfortably across 5 apartments, all with their own bathroom and kitchen, giving everyone their own space and privacy. The main farmhouse has plenty of common areas for everyone to come together and share meals or enjoy a game of pool. 

The property features extraordinary 360° views of rolling green hills and dramatic mountain ranges and the barbecue area is the perfect spot to take it all in with plenty of space for lounging and socialising.  

Around 150 meters from the house, through a grove of cypress trees, guests will arrive at a large swimming pool with hydro-massage and a sensational thermal water pool.

There are plenty of ways to keep the kids entertained with a playground, bowling green, ping pong table, snooker room, mountain bikes, volleyball net and football field all available on the property.

Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill’otel

Yey! Wait… what is that?
It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

What can be arranged?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the 'Extras' tab for all the details.

This beautiful region of Tuscany has something for everyone with thermal springs, extraordinary scenery, oodles of history and culture and beautiful beaches a couple of hours away. Oh, and did we mention the WINE?? Tuscany is the top Italian destination for wine buffs with an incredible number of high quality vineyards. Those seeking an active holiday will find incredible hiking and cycling paths to explore.

A short drive away…

Asciano (6 km) is perched high on a hilltop with two of the best small museums in Tuscany. The Museo d’Arte Sacra contains an exquisite 15th-century Birth of the Virgin and polychrome wooden Annunciation and the Palazzo Corboli has incredible rooms frescoed with stunning allegorical cycles. There’s also a striking Romanesque church, Sant'Agata, and if you enquire in the Ancient Francini Naldi de Munari Pharmacy, the resident doctor may show you a Roman first century mosaic floor. 

Siena (27 km) - For those seeking fantastic food and spectacular art Siena makes a great day trip with a plethora of fabulous restaurants and Gothic architecture. Rivalling Florence for Renaissance palazzi and art, Siena’s churches, galleries and museums could keep you busy for weeks.

    My family and friends had an amazing time at Villa Aiala! The owner and her husband helped make the week wonderful. Our wedding turned out perfect and the meal they cooked us was over the top delicious! Not to mention the sell their own wine, olive oil, jam and honey. Highly recommended!

  • Wow!

    Created on 11/06/2016

    We love the villa, and we appreciate all the help!

  • Wonderful time!

    Posted by M. Maguire on 11/08/2015

    We all had a wonderful time. The owner was lovely and made us feel really welcome. The individual apartments gave us time for privacy and the communal areas gave us time to meet up together. The only thing that wasn't clear on the details was that the swimming pool was quite a walk away, but it was worth the walk. I would definitely recommend Villa Aiala for a family holiday.
