“Lovely location”
Reviewed 6 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Stayed here for, sadly, only two nights. Accommodation was comfortable, views breathtaking and location very handy for daytripping around the countryside. Would definitely like to return for a lengthier stay!

“Tuscany at it's best”

We have just returned from a fabulous month at La Masseria and would thoroughly recommend it. We were a group of 9 with 2 children for the first 2 weeks and a group of 8 adults for the second 2 weeks. The location of the house is second to none with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and if you enjoy walking you can do this straight from the house. The location makes it easy to visit the major attractions of Siena, Florence, Volterra etc. but there are also numerous other small towns and villages that are well worth a visit. The owners of the house (The Robucci Family) are wonderful people and nothing is too much trouble for them. The house is extremely spacious with plenty of terrace space for eating outside (which we did all the time). It is very private but with the added bonus of the village of Martignana at the bottom of the hill where you can get groceries, fresh meat and vegetables. There is also a very good restaurant and a small cafe/bar where you can get fesh coffee and a croissant for breakfast. I cannot fault this house and will hopefully return at some point in the future.

“The view from our patio atop the hill was gorgeous.”
Reviewed 12 October 2009 for a stay in September 2009

We were surprised when we arrive at the top of the hill to La Masseria. The accomodations were more than comfortable and the house was very clean. The breakfasts that Saida made were absolutely delicious and most items were made from their farm. She was a most gracious host . Dottie Anderson

“better than the website”

Finding a comfortable house/appartment for seven grown ups is not easy in Tuscany : too expensive,too small, too out of fashion,... So when we discovered the website of La Masseria , we took our time to study it . We could not link the picures enough with the description given. A couple of phonecalls with Saida made it clear enough but we still had our doubts on what we would find ! But what a very nice surprise when we arrived at the destination . The casa was bigger than it looks on the website, it was 100 % clean , beautiful furniture and decoration , well equiped with plenty of towels, linen and all the other stuff you need .We immediately felt at home .
And a very nice concept as well : the upper floor with the big apparrtment ( 6-8 persons) faces the west and the lower floor ( with the smaller appartments) faces the east. We had the upper floor and thanks to this concept we had a 100 % privacy on our terrace!
And what a view we had from the terrace , indeed a 180 degrees to the west . Looking at the west we saw the sun disappear in the mountains. The attached pictures will tell you everything .
The house is on top of a hill . This has the advantage that it's always a bit windy ; which is more than welcome in the hot Tuscan sun .
The Robucci family offers you also the possibility to enjoy a dinner in the garden based on local food and drinks . Don't hesitate , just do it !
As said , the real thing proved to better that what you can see on the website .

“La Masseria - simply the best!”
Reviewed 3 March 2009 for a stay in August 2008

Our group of family and friends stayed at La Masseria for one week in 2007, two weeks in 2008 and we’ve now booked three weeks in August / September 2009. Having holidayed in Tuscan villas for many years, this is our firm favourite. It is family owned and run; the owner speaks good English, is warm, welcoming, extremely helpful and at the same time unobtrusive.

La Masseria is part of a working farm and is beautifully secluded yet very accessible. We fly to Pisa airport which is just 50 minutes away by car. Florence airport is closer again but we don’t have direct flights to there. Empoli train station is just a ten minute drive. The house is very well equipped and comfortable with stunning 360 degree views and amazing sunsets every evening. It is ideal for groups like ours, the three apartments providing privacy (if and when required!) and a good communal area for socialising. The two lower apartments may be less accessible for physically disabled visitors. There is a very steep climb up to the house from the village (Martignana) – so we usually take the car (two minutes). The site is spacious and mature with trees, shrubs and flowers. There are large terraces with ample furniture including large tables – ideal for whiling away the hours enjoying the wine, the food and the ambience. The owner can provide wonderful evening meals on request, from an extensive menu which she will happily vary and augment if asked.

The pool area is close to the house on the same level and is well equipped with furniture and umbrellas. Although the pool is smallish, we find it ideal and safe for our grandchildren aged five. It is perfectly adequate for casual swimming, - our daughter is a keen swimmer and she swam daily for half an hour – (short lengths but enjoyable she assured us).

This part of Tuscany seems less touristy than many others we’ve visited, with more of a sense that people live and work here. The village, Martignana, is small with a friendly bar, grocery shop and a couple of Pizza restaurants. There are often social events in the community centre in the evenings. Empoli is definitely a working town which we visited mainly for the easy access by rail to Florence, Siena, Lucca etc. There is cheap parking beside the train station and we find going by rail much easier than driving to these places. There is also a Hypermarket in Empoli, though we generally go to Montespertoli (10 minutes by car) to stock up with provisions at the local Coop and shops. In Montespertoli and the surrounding countryside we’ve found some excellent authentic family run restaurants.

All in all, La Masseria is a superb holiday location which we highly recommend.
