Villa Buoninsegna is a big agricultural property with 320 hectares and a few apartments (in self-catering accommodation) for spending a pleasant green holiday, in the very heart of Tuscany, just 27 km from Siena.
Our most important cultivations are vineyards and olive-trees: our Super Tuscan Red Wines and our Olive Oil, from organic agriculture, are sold directly on the property. A wide Mediterranean forest surrounds the whole estate, where we grow also corn and sunflowers.
The property is named after the big XVII century Noble Villa, with a typical and noble structure, built in the centre of the "borgo".
We decided to give a more creative touch to the wine growing introducing Cabernet, Merlot and Shiraz to create together with the Sangiovese grape IGT wines that by now have given us a lot of satisfaction. The olive groves were improved as well. In 1995 we started renovating the buildings of the property.
The property is divided into 4 buildings, offering a total of 21 bedrooms and 19 bathrooms:
1 building for Le Casce unit.
1 building for the units: Colombaia, Podere Goito, Vinsantaia, Limonaia.
1 building (the main villa) that includes: the restaurant, La Casina Buoninsegna and villa Buoninsegna.
1 building for Fontesole.
Only 1,5 km from the Spa and thermal Bath in Rapolano Terme (special discounts and offers for the guests).
Parking within the grounds.
At guests' disposal: There is a small pool 5m x 10m deep from 1,40m to 2m as well as a larger pool, 7mx14m deep 1,50m Internet Wi-Fi Available free of charge. There is also a baby bed and barbecue for the guest’s use
Washing machine: the units Podere Goito, Casina Buoninsegna e Fontesole have a washing machine in each apartment, while the other apartments have a common laundry room.
We finally opened our new restaurant, reserved to our guests only. It is situated at the ground floor of the Villa Buoninsegna and its peculiarity is the large dining room with frescos on the vault, facing the garden with its lemon trees collection and the alley with cypresses.

Villa Buoninsegna is the perfect place to celebrate an Event. The XVII century Villa , the large lemon-trees garden , the swimming pools park, will welcome our guests to celebrate with elegance, simplicity and charm your wedding or an important anniversary, in a landscape of real beauty in the true Tuscan countryside. At our restaurant we can organize a banquet with traditional Tuscan dishes, cared by our cook Simona. All the ingredients we use in our restaurant are produced on the property or in farmhouses close by. We love personalizing our menus and "create" the Event together with our guests, always thinking of organizing a "party for friends", a moment of joy and happiness.
Welcome to the world’s most photographed panorama! There is indeed no piece of this landscape left that has not already become a snapshot. A wide sea of clay spreads out over the countryside Southeast of Siena: one evocative, soft hill follows the other, the few forests leave space to the endless stretches of wheat fields and grassland, able to change their colours with the succession of the seasons.
The Crete Senesi are indeed a quite different world. Someone has defined them as “moonscape”, but only because he hasn’t seen them in spring, when the explosion of nature makes the fields become green waves, caressed by the wind, or in autumn, when the farmers’ ploughs bring the clay back to the surface, with its beautiful violet shimmer.
The Crete are, without doubt, a land of agriculture. In the first place a land of wheat and land of the shepherds. Not by chance it’s famous for its sheep’s milk cheese, unique like the unmistakable flavour of the wild herbs that give their aroma to the sheep’s milk. Land of olive groves that produce the fine “Terre di Siena” oil with guarantee of origin (Dop). And right here in the area of the Crete one of the rarest and finest white truffles of Italy can be found.
In this clayey region with its endless horizons we do not find a lot of stone. Almost everything is made of bricks and therefore made of clay: the beautiful farmhouses that stay isolated on the top of a hill, lined by high cypress trees; the magnificent monuments that mark the territory like cardinal points, from the Abbey of Monte Oliveto (spiritual headquarter of the Crete Senesi, with a marvellous cloister with 16th century frescoes by Sodoma and Signorelli) to the fortified medieval storehouse for wheat Grancia di Cuna, from the castle of San Giovanni d’Asso to the city walls of Buonconvento.
Only around Rapolano, land of the hot springs and the travertine, stone is a protagonist. Stone and bricks meet harmoniously in Asciano, chief city of this territory centuries ago, where we can admire side by side the Sienese city walls of the 14th century, the Romanesque architecture of the Basilica of Sant’Agata and the artistic treasures of Palazzo Corboli, a glorious medieval city palace that today houses a rich museum.
