Villa Di Masseto

(x 16 people)

Sleeps 16 | Bedrooms 8 | Bathrooms 7 | Near Florence, Tuscany

Independent villa | Private pool | Air conditioned bedrooms | Maid included |

Overview

A classic 16th century villa, Villa di Masseto is set at the edge of a tiny hamlet just north of historic Fiesole and easily within dining distance of Florence. A very careful and costly renovation in the past year has restored the villa to its former glories, preserving its enormous charm while adding all the features of a contemporary country retreat: Air-conditioned bedrooms in the Tower, stylish bathrooms for each bedroom and a kitchen to suit the fussiest cook. Three spacious sitting rooms and two loggias ensure plenty of room for a large party to spread out, although sunny days are likely spent by the pool in the villa’s spectacular terraced garden. There are wonderful views of the countryside from the garden and almost every room in the villa but none so sweeping as from the master suite in the tower, which has its own living area and breakfast kitchen.

Clients reviews

What an amazing week!! I cannot believe is over the villa exceed all our expectations, beautiful grounds, pool and the interior. We spent time eating drinking and laughing. We wil never forget al the memories we made here. We plan to return again. The only thing better than the villa itself was the friendships we made here in Italy. The meals and service here provided by Benedetta, Patrizia and Caterina was exceptional they were so amazing and we felt like part of the family here. Benedetta made so many arragments for us and she made everything so easy for us.

Tuscany Now is a class act. Both the villa and the business side of renting went smoothly. Villa Masseto is a wonderful place for an extended family group. It is a gorgeous villa in a magical setting. Our house manager cooked some excellent Tuscan meals.

The owner was gracious and helpful. Benedetta was quick to help with any requests and the maid was superb. I would highly recommend Villa Massetto. Tuscany Now the service was impeccable.

Thank you for a wonderful week. This place is stunning and along with a fantastic bunch of people it could not have been better. The kids swam until water logged, we ate and drank until full, and celebrated Jonelles 40th birthday with gusto. I will remember this forever and hope to come back some day.

Words can not describe what a wonderful wedding week we've had. Your beautiful villa became the perfect backdrop for a celebration of life, love and family. To get married in a place so deeply rooted in history gave us a time sense of stability, endurance and hope- all qualities of a great marriage. We will treasure this week and the memories we made with our family and friends for years to come, and now feel like we have a new extended Italian family- thank you Valentina and Patricia! We hope to be back in 25 years to find the little memento of our marriage that we left behind… With warmest thanks.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful Tuscan villa with us. It was the most idyllic setting we could have ever wished for, for our daughter s wedding. It was nothing less than breathtaking seeing her walk to the Angels to the sounds of a string quartet, and the Tuscan hills in the background. Planning a wedding is never an easy feat, and while the wedding planner took care of many of the details, it was Valentina who ensured that every need and request was attended to with the utmost efficiency. Throughout the past week she has provided us with excellent service. We now consider her to be part of our extended family. We hope you realize what an asset she is to your villa! Thanks again.

We have had a fantastic week to celebrate a 25 wedding anniversary. The Tuscan weather, food and hospitality have been superb. The villa has been very special, to match the company and the occasion. Unfortunately the week has gone far too fast, as always when times are good! But our memories are numerous and beautiful. Thanks to the fantastic food- with plums, apples from your own grounds - our collective waistlines have increased and we have sampled excellent wines too. But alas, it is time to go home, hope to visit again in the near future.

We truly enjoyed our visit in your magnificent villa. The joys of country living are not to be under estimated, especially awakening to the song of the birds. Your villa is every bit as marvellous as all the art and architecture of Firenze. I am tempted to toss a coin in your fountain to insure that we will return. Our family leaves with treasured memories. Many thanks to Valentina- both before and after your trip. The meal prepared by Patricia and the cooking lesson were both highlights of our stay.
