  • “All the staff were fantastic...friendly and attentive. You couldn't fault the service. If I was looking to improve anything, I would say it was time the mountain bikes were replaced or serviced. We had a lovely stay and plan to return.”

  • “The view from the villa was amazing and everything from the service to the food was absolutely perfect! It's a bit out of the way in a small town - but definitely worth the drive because it is a beautiful, relaxing and truly magical place!”

  • “Beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting and convenient location to explore Florence, Siena, and other gorgeous towns and villages. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly and helpful. We have a few criticisms which are minor niggles really...the pool was arctic cold so we couldn't use it (we didn't see anyone else brave a dip either), the salads for lunch were expensive (12 euros) and some dishes at dinner were expensive too (e.g. 16 euros for spaghetti carbonara). They could perhaps have been a little more open about the costs of lunch, coffee, water etc as there was no menu displaying prices. Also in our room there was only one armchair in the living room which wasn't ideal for 2 people. Niggles aside we very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Sassolini and would highly recommend it to our friends wanting a stylish hotel in the heart of picture postcard Tuscany.”

Save to favouritesPrintMailVilla SassoliniWhen we arrived in the peaceful hamlet of Moncioni, we wondered where a design hotel could be. But hidden behind plain stone walls is a very stylish find. For centuries a holiday home of Florentine nobility, Villa Sassolini has been impeccably restored by acclaimed designer Massimo Tani, known for his novel approach to everyday objects. Villa Sassolini, however, is anything but everyday. Smart, contemporary furnishings, softened with the occasional period piece and cool muted colours, have created an atmosphere of clean, understated luxury. It's a refreshing change from the many over-antiquified Tuscan villas around. You're in the heart of Tuscany, up high and the surroundings are inspiring, with breathtaking views of the Monti del Chianti and the valley below. Dine in the intimate restaurant with its fantastic menu or grab your Guccis and soak up some rays next to the good-looking pool. You'll understand why the lucky nobility kept it to themselves for so long.
