We have had hundreds of satisfied guests from all over the world and we have a house book full of appreciative comments. DeiMori La Massa proves very popular and we recommend early reservation.

Dinner at La Massa

Staying at La Massa always (hopefully) means having a wonderful time, relaxing, interesting and plenty to see and do.

For many people, food and wine is a central feature of their stay in Tuscany, the wonderful ingredients, the wineries, the olive oil produced  on the doorstep.  Here at La Massa, we are right in the middle of wonderful food supplies and we like nothing better than sourcing the  very best for you and preparing a special dinner here on our wonderful La Massa Terrace.  The dinner will be complimentary if you book directly with us  on our web-site.

We can do this for two to five or even six people and we charge a very reasonable figure per person which is generally around €25.00.  This includes a  dinner (or lunch) of several courses with our well appreciated La Massa House wine and typically this will include the following:

  • A selection of appetisers with pre-dinner aperitif
  • Antipasti – perhaps a selection of local cooked meats, cheeses, crostini etc
  • A pasta course – often fresh with a variety of sauces
  • Main course – perhaps peposo – a rich and peppery florentine meat dish
  • Cheese course – served with interesting Tuscan relishes
  • Desert – often the famous La Massa pavlova
  • Selection of digestifs

Prior to dinner we always discuss particular likes and dislikes of the party but the final menu will tend to depend on the following:

  • What is in season – we see that it is essential to buy and serve food which is in season
  • According to shopping – we always look for the best quality ingredients.

We would love to prepare dinner for you – this is always a very popular event.

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.

Our gym is located in what it used to be the cellar.

That is why we call it :  The Cellar-Gym .

Instead of a modern electric-blue plastic set you will find old farming tools ad our old Tuscan strawed-bottles ( full of Chianti wine once but now empty though ! )  called  fiasco.

Our Cellar-Gym  has got all sorts of machines ( runner, cross-country, step etc etc ) plus a small but very hi-tech Sauna which can be set on Infra-red or Finnish or Steam-Aroma-Therapy use.

It  is an Austrian Made state-of-the-art Sauna perfect for two-persons.

Regular sauna sessions strengthen the body’s defenses, stimulate the metabolism and relax the muscles. The flavored infusion is a real boon for the health of body and soul.

Saunas are particularly popular in Scandinavian countries and in Russia. But saunas also have a long tradition in Asia and Central Europe. In German-speaking countries, the sauna is used to strengthen the immune system, maintain health and relax. In the Scandinavian countries, saunas are part of the culture and are also important for maintaining social contacts. Business meetings are still often held in the sauna in northern Scandinavia.

The effect of a sauna session is very diverse. Saunas strengthen the immune system and toughness against colds. During the sweating phase, the body temperature is raised to 39 degrees Celsius, which is like an artificial fever and causes pathogens to be destroyed by the elevated temperature.
The interaction of heat in the sauna and cold in the subsequent cold bath can relax the muscles, lower blood pressure, stimulate the circulation and metabolism, which has positive effects on our immune system and our subjective well-being.
Saunas are also used for skin care and slow skin aging. The heat causes the blood vessels to widen, blood flow increases and the surface temperature rises. In the subsequent cooling phase, the blood vessels narrow again, which leads to vascular training. In addition, sweating results in thorough but gentle body cleansing, dry skin flakes dissolve and the activation of the sweat glands improves the moisture balance of the horny layer of particularly dry skin.

The sauna is not recommended for people with inflammation, acute infectious diseases and cardiovascular diseases. Older people should also consult their doctor.

In order to increase the effect and relaxation of a sauna session, natural essential oils are used to promote physical and mental health. We have put together an extensive sauna set for you.

Bring your music and you can use the Bose amplifier and have your own music nicely creating the perfect ambience for your relaxing holiday. The high quality reproduction from a Bose speakers will play your play-lists for making the perfect ambience during your relaxing holiday.
