Romanticism and "art de vivre" in Tuscany, the elegance of an Italian villa and the beauty of the Chianti hillsides. Welcome to Massimo Tani and Riccardo Costanti's hotel.
"What is it that motivates me and appeals to me? My passion for architecture and design, my interest in hospitality" .
Located between Florence and Sienna, at the heart of Tuscany, this 4 star hotel is an ode to Italian "art de vivre". Villa Sassolini Luxury Boutique Hotel, The Originals Collection is "an oasis of peace and luxury in the middle of Tuscany's unspoilt back-country", adds Massimo. This 14th century villa, nestled in a picturesque village, was the summer home of important Florentine families like the Guidiabrite counts. Its owners, Massimo and Ricardo, have successfully combined its historical charm with a clean design to give this home, and its 12 rooms and suites, a particular harmony of styles. This haven of peace also houses a restaurant, a spa and a magnificent swimming pool. An ideal location for discovering Tuscany's splendours.
The rooms feature monochromatic colour schemes and natural fabrics for a style combining design and tradition, explains Massimo. The objective? To surprise and seduce. Each of the 12 rooms and suites, ranging in size from 18 to 55 m2, is unique, combining beauty and comfort, elegance and romanticism. The colours are soothing and the materials noble: the rooms and suites invite you to relax after a long day spent visiting the Tuscan region. And to continue admiring it from your balcony or a terrace, depending on your room selection.

FLORENCEFlorence, home to the Médicis and Dante, remains a mythical Italian city. One should wander its streets during both day and night and, above all, visit the must-see attractions like the Uffizzi Gallery which is one of the world's richest museums. Its collections let you follow the evolution of Italian painting from the primitives up to the masters of the 17th century. Don't forget the Palazzo del Podestà with its courtyard, one of the most beautiful in Italy, and the national museum of Bargello that houses Italian Renaissance sculpture masterpieces along with an area dedicated to the decorative arts. You'll discover Michelangelo's bronzes and the exceptional collection of Donatello works.
SIENNASienna is a magical city. Its streets seem to cling to three hillsides of reddish clay while meandering within the remarkably large fortified walls before reaching a true marvel: the Piazza del Campo - magical - where beats the heart of the city. It's on this square that is celebrated each year the Palio delle Contrade, giving the city's 17 neighbourhoods (contrade) the chance to compete against each other.

George was a gracious host, always personalizing our experience. The cooking class with Ricardo was top-notch and the food would surpass expectations for any foodie. The wine tastings were so impressive that we ordered two cases of wine. The villa views were spectacular and walking around the village was very special.
