Beautiful hotel and garden but the small town is unattractive and with not much to do. We booked a deal through travel zoo for three nights and expected an open bar which was stated on my offer confirmation. This was not the case and felt very disappointed, we have informed travel zoo because the hotel staff were unhelpful. Be warned... More

The villa is nice with a small but beautiful garden. We had an upgrade to the junior suite which was big and nice. The village itself is not beautiful at all and doesn't offer anything. We booked an offer which included the room, breakfast, dinner and open bar. When we arrived the staff told us, that we won't have open... More

This is a true place with character. Gives you a feeling you are visiting your friends home, who left to skiing vacation in the mountains. The villa is full with absolutely fabulous details and pieces - antic furniture, pictures of well know artists, books on different languages. Each room has different design - it is quite interesting to have a... More

Asilo Masi is not difficult to find but you don't realise you have arrived until you enter reception and then you know this hotel is going to be different . The communal rooms offer an unusual charm - which makes you feel "at home" in an instant. We stayed for 3 nights and experienced first class service throughout - the... More

We arrived after mistaking Capannoli with Capanori and driving an extra 2hrs from Pisa. But the drive was worth it, to be greeted by a host with the loveliest warmest smile and an ambience of home away from home. This is not a hotel, its an experience of the truest form. A connection.

We selected this hotel for our 40th wedding anniversary to explore the Tuscany (Siena, Pisa and the Coast), all within a distance of 50 km. From the arrival to the departure, each service and the breakfast were excellent and the up-grade to the deluxe room was highly appreciated (Grazie mille Katia). We hopefully will return for another trip and meet... More

This is the home dreams are made of. I arrived not knowing what to expect and I was completely blown away. This is not your average "hotel", this is an experience.

Our tour group of 10 ( consisting of 50-60 ish retired people) spent 2 weeks in Italy and stayed at 4 hotels, including Asilo Masi. All were wonderful except Asilo Masi! The Contessa, the hotel's owner, was rude and condescending towards our group. We spent three nights at the hotel. On the first night, we were informed that the common... More

This hotel is a joy. We stayed for just one night for the Bocelli concert (waste of time and money!) and it was the highlight of our trip. You could fail to comment on the beautiful house and furniture but never to tell all readers about the charming and welcoming Contessa. We were given food at 1am after the concert... More

I have stayed at places like Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, but this place tops them. It is exceedingly elegant, filled with antiques. The setting is very quiet, and is on a hill overlooking the town. It is a bit far from Pisa (about a 70 Euro cab ride), but is worth it. This would be a place to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Asilo Masi offers 8 bedrooms (including 2 suites) in a restored historic mansion located in the historic centre of Capannoli, a village on the hills of Tuscany, very close to Andrea Bocelli's Teatro del Silenzio and perfectly located between Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the Chianti area. It's only 30 minutes drive from Pisa airport and is surrounded by thermal villages. Countess Cristina Gotti Lega combined her love for arts, food, luxury interiors and Tuscan hospitality when she redesigned the family building to transform it into the elegant house it is today. The facade was designed by Tuscan architect Luigi Bellincioni and the 18th century building was once used by the Gotti Lega family as a farm on their estate. It was then given to the nuns of Capannoli for them to use as a children's nursery ('Asilo' in Italian) until it was returned to the family. Handpicked antique furniture including Tuscan, European and Asian-inspired pieces by the Countess herself, artwork throughout (including in the rooms), extremely comfortable beds with luxury linen. Some rooms feature high-ceilings or original wooden beams, pin-drop silent and air-conditioned. All except one bathroom are en-suite, some with a separate walking shower and most feature custom-made tower racks. ... more   less
