Villa Di Masseto (x 12 people)

{{ productName }}

Overview

Description

Map

Villa di Masseto is located on a hill close to Fiesole, 12km/8 miles to the south-west, which overlooks Florence and is considered one of Italy’s most beautiful towns in its own right. Olmo is too small to appear on most maps but it does boast a restaurant within walking distance of the villa, 1000m/yards. Otherwise the nearest food shop is 2.5km/1.5 miles at the ancient village of Santa Brigida, with a better selection outside Fiesole. It’s a 25-minute drive into the centre of Florence (including rush hour), slightly less to Vicchio, the birthplace of Renaissance icon Fra Angelico, and to the 18-hole golf course and spa at Scarperia. To the north is the Mugello, a lovely area that favoured by weekending Florentines, and to the east is Rufina, one of the Chianti wine-producing regions.

The agency service is very professional and effective. Optimum house and catering organized by Benedetta (local agent) very good and of great dedication. maybe he could have had a more personalized agency contact before departure or during the stay to find out how he was running. Good feedback too

Our group of 20 friends had an amazing week at Villa Di Masseto, from start to finish. The villa is in the most beautiful location, and the building itself is stunning; all the rooms are a great size with lots of character. The pool and gardens were maintained to a high standard, and the daily maid service was an added bonus that was much appreciated. It’s close enough to Florence for day trips but far out enough to feel remote - the perfect combination. I also recommend the in-house chef service which we had on our final night - delicious food and a real treat. A huge thank you and the highest praise must go to the lovely host, Benedetta. I was in touch with her months prior to our holiday to organise taxis/chefs/restaurant bookings/pilates lessons and she was great. The week went so smoothly thanks to her. Nothing was too much to ask - she was very kind and approachable. She is a real asset to the villa - we really couldn’t have asked for more. We had a very special week, in a very special place. Thank you!

Tuscany Now and More provided excellent service - I felt fully informed at all times through every step of the booking process. They were very helpful in pointing us in the right direction to organise additional excursions etc. and I would definitely book a villa with them again.

Benedetta, the miracle host Tuscany Now and More were a pleasure. Professional, helpful and they cared. Simon is super! The Villa Di Masseto was lovely. The setting, views and Dinner for 20+\- every evening outside was magical. Benedetta who oversaw our stay is special. Her easy laugh and being a miracle worker, made everyone's stay an absolute pleasure. One example; Forgot it was someone's birthday. Emailed Benefetta at 12:30AM on a Sunday morning. Had a stunning cake at the Villa by noon time. She organized wine tours, super catered dinners and provided invaluable advice. Trust her completely! one of the reasons we rented the villa, was the never ending accolades about Benedetta. Please let my note be added to the accolades for this amazing woman. Last if you like fantastic massages, have Benedetta organize Lilia to come to the Villa. Benedetta, thank you, thank, thank you!!!!

The villa was exactly as described-beautiful and comfortable for 19 of us. It is located in a stunning setting with small trails and churches and butter huts to explore. Its proximity to Feisole and Florence was perfect. We hit the hottest week ever unfortunately but the villa stayed cool and had plenty of fans. The swimming pool water was cool and extremely clean. While much can be said of Villa di Masseto, the real jewel is its house manager, Benedetta. She is completely dedicated to the guests, responding quickly to any questions or concerns. For example, we had bees and wasps one night in several windows. She was shocked and had exterminators out immediately who remedied the situation within hours. Two fans were broken and Benedetta replaced them instantly. My husband and I got lost driving from Florence to the villa due to a road block,( no car gps (as had been promised by Thrifty) and an international cellular plan that did not work.) I was able to receive a text from my son in law and by some miracle he received mine saying we were lost in Pontassieve. Benedetto drove into the city to meet us and helped us with our initial grocery shopping-with great energy and compassion.Right from the start she made our stay perfect. Besides that, she is a lovely, special person, and I hope Kevin and Anna realize how fortunate they are to have her. We planned three meals prepared by Benedetta's chefs-she supervised and they were the best three meals all 19 of us have ever had-served outside under the canopy with complete professionalism. What can I say-the villa is perfect and Benedetta is the reason it all runs so beautifully.

Great rooms with plenty of space and wonderful beds. With such a large number of guests I would like to have a larger kitchen and double fridge capacity. However, since we frequently hired a cook, we managed well anyhow. The local hostess was very helpful and provided top services and excellent chefs. Daily cleaning service was delight. A fairly good size pool was lovely particularly for the kids. The clover was blooming with attracted many bees in the grass around the pool and also in the water. That way bee stung could not be avoided. Suggested improvements would be more tiles and less grass around the pool, and a simple shower to rinse off pool water.

The villa was beautiful and very comfortable. We had a very good time. The housekeeping that was included made this a perfect combination of renting a house and still having many of the conveniences of a hotel. Benedetta was attentive and kind, contributing much to our wonderful week.

We had a wonderful week in this fabulous historic villa. The villa is beautiful and comfortable. We were 12 people, including 3 children, and had lots of room. The bathrooms and other amenities are up to date and the gardens were beautiful, even in October. Benedetta, the concierge, was very helpful, gave us good advice, and was very kind, especially in helping us celebrate an 11-year-old's birthday. We had high hopes for this vacation and our experience surpassed our expectations.

The villa was magnificent and met all our requirements. The path down to the pool required some care for older people to negotiate but not insurmountable. The house manager, Benedetta, was a gem. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Her beaming smile each time we met lit up our day. She went to great lengths to ensure our celebration meal was memorable in spite of the fact that we took some time to settle on the menu. She gave valuable advice on local restaurants and we had some wonderful meals out. Our housemaid, Cristina, was a lovely shy girl from Rumania. She arrived promptly at 10am each morning and made a thorough job of completing the cleaning and making up the beds etc. I think my wife would have liked to have taken her home with us!

Words alone can't describe just how fantastic Villa Di Masseto is....the villa is beautiful and in a beautiful location, but what makes it amazing, is the house manager, Benedetta! My family (3 siblings, 3 sibling in laws and me) just returned from a week at Villa Di Masseto. I shared with Benedetta the things we wanted to do while in Tuscany, and she worked mercilessly to ensure it all happened....she arranged our transport, tickets, etc. and our week went off without a single hitch. I can't recommend this place enough...you won't be disappointed with the villa, the grounds, and especially with Benedetta!!!

Hello I am now home after a gorgeous Italian holiday .. the highlight being my week at the villa di Masseto ! We were there from July 1st-8th and I had close friends and family with me .12 of us in total .. meant to be 14 of us but at last minute dear friends had to cancel due to one requiring emergency spinal surgery … We arrived late afternoon to our delight and pleasure at discovering this wonderful house .. we were met by the manager Benedetta who was most friendly and helpful.. She had also done my basic shopping for me from my emailed list and all provisions were there /in fridge and stacked in kitchen .. Made such a difference as we had come by train from Florence so shopping for groceries etc was very difficult .. meant we were able to enjoy the weekend with plenty of food not needing to consider stores / food purchasing til the start of the next week.. The villa is absolutely wonderful… large grounds with picturesque gardens/ great outdoor dining space/ fantastic generous pool/ fabulous décor in the many rooms/ charming and tastefully furnished without being fussy or too precious.. accommodation was good.. we determined who was to sleep where (we were a group from ages 65-29 ) .some shared bathrooms as not all bathrooms had showers ( other than hand held at bath ) The master was beautiful with excellent ensuite full of natural light .. Lovely views form everywhere in this house.. Kitchen is small on first look but worked well with a couple cooks at a given time .. there are another spots with some cooking facilities but lots stairs we managed with the main one .. used microwave in other kitchen (up quite a few stairs ) a few times however .. Plenty of crockery and glassware /it was generous in its content so we were not having to constantly wash dinnerware .. We ate out doors all nights bar one as the weather was heavenly and around 27 degrees each evening .. As keen cooks we ate there every night .. sourced good produce form nearby Coops (partic good one in Pontassieve ) but Sieci too was more than adequate .. BBQ was in use too so we all enjoyed preparing great dishes and were so happy to remain there each evening after plenty of beautiful days exploring nearby region . A train to Florence was a quick trip from Sieci station.. around 10 mins in the car to station from villa .. we made a couple trips into Florence to shop for gorgeous things /a winery tasting /tour and lunch one day and another day my birthday lunch I had pre arranged in Fiesole .. On these days I organised(through Tuscany now ) a bus to take us all which was leisurely and relaxing requiring no one to drive..All worked really well .. We were all sad to leave and I hope to be able to rent another of your properties in the future .. we had previously enjoyed one of your villas in Umbria .. Thank you again for providing great services and excellent and charming properties.

I have been bringing tour groups to Tuscany since 1989, always using different villas in different cities. Villa di Masetto is without a doubt one of the most beautiful villas I've ever rented. I will most likely come back again at a future date.

It is hard to put into words just how amazing our week at Villa di Masseto was! It truly was a magical experience and one that myself and the 20 other guests will treasure. I have heard endless comments since being home about how this was THE best holiday people have ever been on and ever since I have been home, I have had major holiday blues! I cannot wait to return. As guests of the villa, Benedetta made us feel safe, welcome and spoiled! No one can argue with the beauty of the villa and the Tuscan hills that surround it but Benedetta makes the villa feel like your home - especially when she is there either dropping of a delicious tiramisu, ensuring that dinners run smoothly or arranging day trips to other breathtaking destinations. We cannot express just how amazing she made our holiday! As newly weds who got married at the villa on 10th August and that is why both Benedetta and the villa have a special place in our hearts. It was a day that we have both felt excited, anxious and nervous about but because of Benedetta's help and inspiration we had the most perfect day. Very rarely can you say that there is nothing you would change about something but this day truly was PERFECT for us (even the tornado they day before!). Thank you so much for an amazing experience and we will see you soon! Love from Colette and Louis x x x x
