Description from owner
We are spectacularly located in a prominent elevated position in a South facing valley which brings long hours of sunshine and a favourable micro climate. The house is approached by a lane which winds its way from the main road, crossing over a river by an ancient bridge and then winding upwards through olive groves to reach the property. There are extensive private wooded grounds which drop away from the house giving a real sense of privacy and peace. The whole atmosphere is one of utter tranquillity – we are far from any major road and the only sounds are the splash of the water as it tumbles from rock to rock, the birds and the summer calling of the crickets. At night, we are far away from any light pollution and guests always enjoy the brilliance of the stars and the closeness of the moon. There is nothing to spoil the view and to witness a 'La Massa' morning is truly magnificent – the light has a wonderful brilliance and luminescent quality which never fails

Location description from owner
The Tuscany region
Tuscany is one of the most visited regions of Italy and we are so well situated to enjoy what it has to offer being about 45 minutes from Arezzo and just about an hour from Florence. We are well able to give help with visiting both as they are easily assessable as a day visit.
Castel San Niccolo
There are many activities available in the immediate area and these include the following: Hill walking and rambling. Horse riding. Cycling along the peaceful roads and tracks. Bird Watching. Golf at a local course with daily membership available at reasonable rates. Guests report that the course is excellent and that the views are magnificent. Clubs are available for hire and there is also a golf driving range. Places to visit are many and varied and include: The local Tuscan Hill Towns and Villages – one of the most beautiful being Poppi about 10 Minutes drive away. Arezzo, the provincial capital with its elegant squares, winding streets and wide range of shops. Siena can be reached as a day visit. Cortona, the beautiful town made famous by the book and film ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’ – about an hour by car. The Sanctuary of St. Francis at La Verna – a fascinating place to visit with the site being spectacularly located.

“Amazing location, friendly owner - house even better than the photo's”
We stayed at Le Massa in Aug-16 (myslef, my wife and our 18 year old son) as our first holiday in Italy and Tuscany, driving from East Sussex, UK. We loved the house, location, and the weather - its a place you arrive and it helps you to relax immediately. The friendly owners Danielle and Marco (and Peter) gave great guidance on the best ways to spend our time - supportive but never obtrusive, respecting our privacy. On the last night they invited us to a meal with them and some of their friends and on to a wine festival in Poppi which was excellent! We would thoroughly recommend - I can't think of any downside, it really was that good. Bravo!
“Why you should stay at this beautiful Villa”
We spent two weeks at Dei Mori La Massa with our grown up family and would certainly recommend it to others. Internally the villa was very spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped. Externally, we had wonderful views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside, the swimming pool was well kept with plenty of sunbeds and every day we made good use of the lovely terraced area, to eat ‘al fresco’ and relax. The owner, Danny, could not have been more helpful – he is a lovely, friendly person who genuinely wants to ensure that his guests have the best holiday experience at his property. He gave us information about difference local places to visit and told us of the history of the area. He was also happy to book tickets and restaurants for us. We spent a couple of very enjoyable evenings with Danny, sampling home cooked local cuisine and homemade Limoncello and liquorice liqueurs. On arrival we were given a welcome food pack, which was an added bonus and of course, consisted of lots of delicious goodies! Unfortunately, our two week stay at La Massa flew over too quickly and given the chance we would have gladly stayed longer. Thank you Danny for making our holiday such a wonderful experience . . . oh and thank you very much for the Limoncello recipe, we’re looking forward to making it and will definitely raise a glass and think of you when drinking it . . . Cin Cin!
Owner's reply: It was so nice having you at Vertelli and good getting known wit all of you. You've been adorable guests and I will treasure meeting you and share your holiday in this part of Tuscany. i was so happy to talk to you every tie you were coming back from your touring and discovering the Casentino valley and Tuscany. It is always a pleasure to share LaMassa with so appreciative and intriguing guests like you. Best wishes and many returns. Take care and keep in touch. DD
“Lovely accommodation, setting and hosts, would go back”
I stayed here with my husband and our son and his girlfriend, both in their 20's. The accommodation was absolutely lovely, and our son and his girlfriend had a room which was just next to our accommodation, and had an ensuite bedroom, and facilities for cooking and making drinks, which gave us all a degree of privacy. The pool was gorgeous, the sun terrace was very relaxing. The setting is so peaceful, it made the week we stayed here seem much longer. Danny, one of the owners was very friendly, helpful and informative but never too intrusive. The local people in the village close by were also so friendly and helpful. You definitely need a car to get to and from the accommodation. The accommodation did not have air conditioning, but we went in August and it wasn't a problem, there was always a nice breeze, and inside the house always felt nice and cool. The views from the property are outstanding, and there are plenty of short walks which also offer stunning views of the countryside. I normally only stay in hotels, but this accommodation has really changed my view on self catering, villa holidays. We fell in love with this accommodation, and I'm sure anyone else who stays here would feel the same. The kitchen is really well equipped, there was a great espresso machine which we made loads of use of, and there are lots of helpful guide books and games, dvd's and books. We all loved our week here, and would not hesitate to return again in the future.
