The simple, unadorned façade of L'Apparita belies a history and an interior that are quite the opposite. In fact, the building dates from the 15th century and is considered one of the most important and best-preserved examples of a Tuscan villa from the Renaissance period. Its owner has filled the house with collections of antiques, art and books that reflect a life richly lived, including the world's most extensive collection of miniature theatres. The rooms, each a small museum in its own right, unfold over several levels connected by short flights of wooden steps. The main gathering place is a very large but extremely comfortable room with archways, its walls covered in paintings and photographs and the added comfort of air-conditioned bedrooms. Surrounding the house are gardens designed by landscape guru Pietro Porcinai, with a small open theatre that has the city of Siena as its backdrop. Siena is also in full view from the property's swimming pool, and through the trees one has glimpses of the surprising, impossibly photogenic hills of the Crete Senese.

Clients reviews

Spacious and comfortable living rooms, with space for 4 couples to sit talk or read together. Unique bedrooms with variable sleeping arrangements as needed. Our property manager was very helpful and accommodating. Just a short drive to Siena stores and restaurants. The time spent just relaxing and talking in the villa was one of the highlights of our Italian adventure. TN, reassuring to have a professional team behind such a large decision for our group. In Villa chef by Mattisse was so much fun and delicious that we arranged for a second evening with Chef Mattisse.

Peder M Shea

Location was excellent - close to Siena and within short driving distances of destination points, as well as rural communities, such as Montepulciano, Volterra, etc. The villa, the services at the villa and the thoroughness of the Tuscany Now staff made our vacation at L'Apparita a memorable one.

Ramon Brinkman

Extraordinary character, and the personal collections of the owner were a special feature. R.Rigg 2011

Robert Rigg

The furnishings were beautiful. Comfortable accomodations.

Giovanna Trasente

The grounds and the pool were beautiful. Wonderful views of Siena from the back of the house. The welcome basket of food was a nice touch. Lots of room - 6 bedrooms and 7 or 8 bathrooms.
