Delighted to be Under the Tuscan Sun

  • 5 of 5

What a treasure! The villa is everything described, and more. Two families, five children between us varying greatly in ages, spent a week at Masseto and made memories for a lifetime. The pool is surrounded by fields of lavender, the tennis court is hidden amongst the olive groves, patios tucked between the fig and grape trees. Spacious terraces, where we dined, read, and hid out during a thunderstorm, overlook vistas we wil dream about. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of bathrooms and numerous living and sleeping areas for kids to have their own space while adults enjoy their own time. Hands on caretaker Daniele is a personal concierge while tending to the lush gardens on the property. Immaculate cleaning by Fiorele. Stunning design details throughout the house, which was featured in a design magazine, show the owners' love and attention.

Perfectly located between Siena and Florence, with loads of charming small towns in between make Masseto an ideal 'base camp" for exploring. Castellina in Chianti if 5 minutes away, and loaded with shops and restaurants and sights. So much to see, If you can pull yourself away from the leisurey life poolside, enjoying a pizza cooked in the pizza oven and wine from a local vineyard!

Words just don't describe this breath taking pocket of Tuscany!

Villa Massetto is equipped with everything you could possibly need, without losing that Tuscan charm. We travelled as a group of 8 which was perfect, breakfast on the sun terrace, lunch on the pool terrace with pizza cooked in the pizza oven (dough bought from the co-op, not worth making your own for 2€) and eaten on the main terrace looking out over the valley below. Pool great, tennis amazing, my snooker average, and sky TV a guilty pleasure.

Castellina boasts a great pizzeria, but the traditional restaurant La Piazza (just 10 mins away) must be visited - simply amazing!!!!!!!

That said the local produce and great local wine makes cooking and staying in a real pleasure. I strongly recommend making the trip to the Co-op in Poggibonssi as it is far superior and MUCH cheaper than the local store in Castellina.

The villa is well equipped with books and games to help keep every visitor occupied.

My recommendations are to pack your sun tan lotion and to ensure you have lots of memory space on your camera, your going to need it!

Thank you Villa Massetto for a very memorable holiday.

A week in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, well appointed villa in a stunning location. A wide range of facilities, excellent and discreet maid service and a location well placed to visit and enjoy the many tourist 'honeypots' of Tuscany and the Chianti region. Chill by the swimming pool, enjoy a glass of wine overlooking a magical tuscan panorama or visit a number of excellent local restaurants. A super holiday break - we will return!!

Great Tuscan villa holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Villa Masseto. The tennis court with spectacular views was a real surprise, while the crystal blue swimming pool was just the perfect place for relaxing after a busy day sightseeing in nearby Sienna.

The Villa itself was very spacious and beautifully decorated in traditional tuscan style. It was really clean and well kept by the housekeeper and gardener.

The Villa is perfect for families and our kids enjoyed the snooker table, while we enjoyed dining alfresco with a glass of prosecco on the terrace looking across the Tuscan hills. A prefect holiday!
