Sesniki is a village in Värska Parish, Põlva County in southeastern Estonia.

Sesniki and its neighbouring villages (Kundruse, Litvina], Pattina, Perdaku, Saabolda, Saatse, Samarina] and Ulitina) are notable as part of Estonia that although not an enclave, before 2008 wasn't reachable by road without passing through Russian territory for several hundred metres, through an area known as the Saatse Boot. In 2008 a new Matsuri–Sesniki road was opened, making it possible to reach the area without necessarily passing through the Saatse Boot. This is however a 15–20 km detour if going from Värska.
