We are an ancient Tuscan family, which for four centuries has maintained the traditional management of the Chianti vineyard and olive grove, observing the rules of organic farming.
Masseto in Chianti consisting of a manor house and two farmhouses, was in the past run by sharecropping families who were responsible for cultivating and maintaining our beautiful territory. The end of the sharecropping has, for a certain period of time, made the farms unused and only the birth of the Masseto farm allowed the reuse of these great and beautiful buildings. The 50 hectares property is now cultivated under organic farming, with vineyards, olive groves and woods.
In the last thirty years we have also dedicated ourselves to conservative restoration, keeping the architectural features unaltered, but making the cottages comfortable, according to modern living standards.
The hospitality activity began in the eighties with two houses converted into comfortable cottages with modern kitchens and bathrooms, antique furniture in the rooms. We built one of the first swimming pools in the area, and we received the licence number 002 for rural hospitality in Castellina in Chianti. The kitchens of all the apartments are equipped with fridge-freezer, dishwasher, oven and small appliances. The furnishings of the rooms are ancient and come from the family, which has owned this small village for four centuries. Each cottage has its own shaded outdoor area, with the use of the swimming pool in the summer months and a common laundry. All cottages have central heating.
We want to offer our guests a simple but nice, healthy and relaxing place, for a stay that regenerates the body and the spirit. We live in the property and are always available to make the stay as pleasant as possible.
