You don't need to be fluent in Italian to understand Asilo Masi's appeal. History and traditional Tuscan hospitality come together behind this hotel’s historic façade, which dates back to the 18th century. With an Italian Touring Club award under its belt, this traditional private residence has been tastefully renovated to include every modern convenience.
Fulfilling your Lord-or-Lady-of-the-manor fantasies couldn't be easier, with butler service throughout the hotel. Follow the scent of olive trees to the lovely gardens, and you’ll find an inviting dipping pool surrounded by pretty gazebos and al-fresco seating areas. As you may expect, the gastronomy is something to Instagram about too – this is Italy, after all – and food here looks to the local Tuscan countryside for inspiration and ingredients.
Rooms and suites
Follow the fragrance of luxe Penhaligon’s amenities to the rooms and suites, and you'll be following in the footsteps of the likes of Andrea Bocelli, Sharon Stone and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. The décor here complements the hotel's historic nature, with elegant bed frames, crisp white sheets, mahogany bureaus and inviting seating areas. Upgrade to a Junior suite for even more space to spread out in.
Tapestries on the walls and truffle-hunting in the woods set the scene for the impressive culinary experience here. Using ingredients provided by local suppliers, the chefs serve up the best of the region for lunch, dinner or the buffet breakfast. In contrast to the modern kitchen, candelabras, fine china, working fireplaces and vaulted ceilings create a regal ambience in the dining room.
Located in the province of Pisa, in Italy's region of Tuscany, Capannoli is perfectly placed to satisfy any culinary and cultural needs. The city of Pisa itself is less than a 40-minute drive away, while the pebbly beaches and impressive seafood of Livorno can be reached in 45 minutes.
