Paola is above and beyond an exceptional host. She and her family welcome you with utmost sincerity and kindness. The location is perfect for enjoying and taking in the gorgeous scenery (the pictures can’t justify the beauty) and is also convenient for day trips to Florence, Siena, and Pisa. Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed playing and going on walks with their furry friends (dogs, cat, neighboring rabbits & horses). We went truffle hunting with their experienced friends, who explained all about the trade with passion and incorporated our daughter into the fun. Then, Paola and her family taught us how to make pasta and welcomed us to have dinner with all of them. They also shared a bottle of wine from their vineyard, which was one of our favorites. What an amazing experience! This holiday will always hold a special place in our family’s heart. Thank you so much!

In the middle of Chianti

Place of production of some of the best wines in the world

Masseto in Chianti is located on the hills of the Chianti Classico, between Greve and Castellina in Chianti, on the border of the provinces of Siena and Florence, surrounded by wonderful countries, rich of history, culture and interesting views.

An eleventh-century tower, the main nucleus of the property, dominates the valley of the river Pesa. These towers were decisive for the domination of the area, in the wars between Siena and Florence. When they lost their strategic importance, they were converted into residences and farms.
