A wonderful stay in the heart of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

There is little to add to all the excellent reviews already posted.

We recently spent six wonderful days in Massarella and Toscana in general. The home-made meals -with home-grown ingredients!- were superb.

The knowledgeable and caring service provided by the Angerame family is second to none. Every day Antonio drove us back and forth either to the train station at San Miniato or Empoli, or even to our destination (Lucca, Vinci).

Highly recommended!

A wonderful holiday in Massarella.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very special by the wonderful hosts. The accommodation, although basic, has absolutely everything you need and the grounds and pool are spotless and well maintained. Eating outside on the patio offers a wonderful view of the surrounding area and the daily menu offered by the hosts is fabulous. The setting around the pool again is wonderful and Massarella itself has a shop/bar located close by for supplies. Close by (8 mins by car) is Fucecchio where we found a large COOP supermarket and an Aldi so no problem getting supplies. Internet access was available in the accommodation and around the pool. Ideally located to visit many wonderful places such as Lucca, Florence and Pisa. Also make sure you take a trip to Vinci, the views from Leonado Da Vinci's house are spectacular. Can't wait for my next holiday to this wonderful place.

Bellissima esperienza nella verde campagna toscana

  • 5 of 5

La mia famiglia ed io siamo rimasti molto contenti del nostro recente soggiorno a Massarella in Toscana durante le vacanze pasquali, l'appartamento è davvero carino e ben tenuto e l'accoglienza dei signori Angerame è stata calorosa! Il giardino è bello e curato così come la piscina, che spero potremo utilizzare nel corso di un nostro prossimo soggiorno. Abbiamo apprezzato anche la possibilità di usufruire della cena, davvero ottima e a base di prodotti casalinghi.

Il paese si trova in una zona interessante con numerose possibilità di visite e passeggiate nei dintorni.

Grazie ancora per la gentilezza e la disponibilità!

Kleines Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Ende August verbrachten wir sehr schöne Tage in Massarella. Wir wurden von der Familie Angerame aufs Herzlichste mit toscanischen Leckereien begrüßt, die Marina für uns zubereitet hatte. Überhaupt ist Marina eine tolle Köchin, die die Gäste auch gerne mit leckeren Abendessen mit Produkten aus dem eigenen Garten oder einem Frühstück verwöhnt, das direkt auf der Terasse serviert wird. Das ist auch eine wunderbare Alternative für Eltern, die einen Gang ins Restaurant scheuen, weil der Nachwuchs sich dort nicht austoben kann. Wir haben dieses Abendessen sehr genossen, während unser Sohn nach Herzenslust herumtoben konnte. Die Wohnung ist mit allem Notwendigen eingerichtet und verfügt über eine wunderbare Terasse mit Blick ins Grüne. Klasse ist auch der gepflegte Pool, in dem wir uns nach unseren Ausflügen in die nahegelegenen Städte (Lucca, Pistoia, Firenze) abkühlten. Davon abgesehen möchte ich die Herzlichkeit und Gastfreundschaft der Angerames hervorheben, denn unser Sohn wurde krank und Marina und Antonio halfen uns sehr, Arzttermine zu ergattern und begleiteten uns sogar dorthin. Auf diesem Wege möchten wir uns noch einmal bei der Familie Angerame bedanken und wir können die Unterkunft aufs wärmste empfehlen.

Fantastic holiday in Massarella

  • 5 of 5

The postive impressions started months before the actual holiday. When we booked, everything was absolutely uncomplicated. All our questions were answered fast, detailed and so friendly it made us really look forward to our 2 weeks in Tuscany.

When we arrived we were surprised with a welcoming snack. Delicious!

The apartment isn't very big, but it's absolutely ok for a holiday. It's equipped with everything necessary and it was a big PLUS that we didn't need to bring a baby bed for our little son, towels or bedclothes. It was all there and a change was possible whenever needed. The kids also had enough room to play.

The apartment and the whole property, including the pool, were spotless. It's a big ground, but you see that the owners are working there with heart and soul. Everything is beautiful and well maintained.

The homemade dinner was always fantastic. We were surprised how much of it really is self-made and it all tastes great! We had wonderful evenings enjoying the dinners.

The most important thing to say is, that the people are amazing! We really felt welcomed and at home. I had the feeling that no one minded when our 2 energetic kids had some fun at the pool or time and time again were showing their fresh-drawn paintings to the owner, which isn't a given these days. It felt just right to be there!

In general, the location is ideal to explore the beautiful Tuscany. We visited Pisa, Florence, Vinci, Volterra, Pinocchio-Parc and even Elba and every city could be reached in not too much time.

If we ever like to see Tuscany again, we will definately come back here! Thank you again for a wonderful holiday!

Feel at home in Massarella

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 weeks. We felt at home. The location is very good to visit this part of Tuscany! The apartment is very clean and we had everything we needed. The most special about this place are the owners. The took care of us in such a nice way. The swimmingpool is very nice. Every morning we had fresh bread from the bar only 300 meters away. We want to come back. Grazie mille
