Beautiful Tuscan Villa
Thank you Maria! What a beautiful villa in the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. You are a gracious host and made us feel very welcome. We very much enjoyed our stay at Sommassa and would love to return someday. Your special touch with the apple desert was a delight! All the best to you and your family now and in the future! Ciao, my friend!
Villa Sommassa was an absolute dream of a place to stay in the Chianti region. It was a little remote, but we learned our way about very quickly. The villa was immaculate and had all the conveniences of home. The bedrooms were spacious, and 3 of the 4 had en suite bathrooms, which is a real plus.
We were a group of 4, but could have easily added 4 more people and not been crowded.
The pool is clean and equipped with many lounge chairs as well as a covered table and chairs. The lawn around the pool is very well manicured. The view from the pool was spectacular!
Perhaps the best part of our stay was our hostess, Maria Antoinetta. She met us in Panzano to "drive us in" to the villa, and was so accommodating and helpful in every way. Such a sweet person who only wanted us to have our best vacation ever.
This is truly one of the best places we have ever stayed. We can't wait to come back!
Thank you for your positive review about Agriturismo Sommassa, and thank you for having expressed this on Home Away,; is a big help for us. I'am touched becouse you have appreciated as were we are in our simplicity and spontaneity! Is an encouragement to continue in this way! We looking forward to an other holiday with us!
Awesome Tuscany villa!
This was my 7th villa rental in Chianti and by far the best! If you are looking for something remote, scenic, clean, and with old world charm, look no further....Villa Sommassa has it all. There were so many great memories, especially the many evenings sitting at the outside table enjoying a glass of wine while watching the sun setting over the mountains. However, the highlight of our stay was meeting Maria and Mario, the owners. They are lovely people, attentive and immediately responsive to any request or need....they were the consummate host and hostess that went the extra mile(s) to make our stay memorable. We hated to leave this piece of paradise and so look forward to our next stay at Sommassa.
Great farmhouse hidden from the crowds
This is a beautiful place, that has had few VRBO reviews. That initially concerned us (6 people- 3 couples). However when we arrived, is was a very clean and large place. There are 4 bedrooms, 3 with double beds, and 3 with private bathrooms. However one of those 3 private bathrooms is in another room with 2 single beds. One couple just used the double bedroom and the private bath off the single beds and it was fine. The owner, Maria, is marvelous, and really will appreciate you, especially if you treat her the way you would like to be treated if you owned the house. She and her husband will bend over backwards. Note- Maria lives in nearby Panzano, not at the house.
Also, is is not described well, but there is the main communal living area on the ground floors with the complete kitchen, AND a second communal living area with partial kitchen on the upper floor. The partial kitchen has all appliances, just not the utensils which you can bring up from below if you want to cook there.
For those that do not read Italian, one small Italian sentence in the description that you need to understand so you will not be surprised with at the end of your stay, that hasn't been translated to English. The cost for heat and air conditioning is not included. This is totally understandable as the house is very big, the local price for electricity in Italy is high. If Maria would air condition the whole thing to 65 degrees in the summer, it would rack up a small fortune, possibly greater than the daily rental cost. So they put in a separate A/C-heating meter that you will read with Maria at the start and end of the rental, and you will pay for the kilowatts used at the rate shown in the VRBO property description in terms of euros per kw. We found that we did not need the AC or the heating, so simply shut off the electrical breakers at the meter, so no kW power was used. The balance of the power for the house is not on the AC/heating meter, that cost is included in the rental price.
I highly recommend this place. It is down a 1/2 mile dirt road, that keeps the tourists out. It is about 5 minutes from Panzano and 15-20 minutes from Greve. Big private pool, in sight of Badia a Passignano. Very near the Ristorante Riganna, which you must go to for lunch.
Sit outside on the porch with some antipasta from the world famous Dario’s Butcher Shop, with some wine from a local winery that you tasted or wine from the Coop, and watch the sun set. Fantastic!
thank you for your positive/lovely review and for having described our villa and what we do so well! We are constantly making improvements thanks to our guests’ precious advice. However, I feel I must correct the claim that we have 4 bedrooms when in actual fact we have 5. I would also like to clarify the heating/air conditioning situation. On the website it clearly states in English at the bottom of the Details page that heating and air conditioning are among the services not included in the price. It is true : the house is quite big and heating or cooling the whole area could be expensive; however, you must consider that the cost is divided between the 10 guests (+ 2 children) that the house is able to host, so that in the end it is a small amount for each person. I would add that during a substantial part of the year there is no need for either heating or air conditioning. We are also very aware of the environmental impact of heating or cooling a large house when not necessary.
Once more, many thanks, and we hope to have you as our guests again.
an excellent property and proprietor
maria antonietta is a wonderful, considerate and caring host. the property is exactly as described. we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation there. our favorite meal was the one where a local chef (recommended by our host, of course!) came and cooked at the house. we were able to relax completely. very kid friendly (we had two five-year-old boys on the trip.
Dear friends, I am delighted to know that you had a beautiful holiday in Sommassa. Thank you very much for your lovely review. I too can say that I found in you very special guests! I hope to have you again in Sommassa in the near future!
With my warmest regards!

From Florence, follow signs to Greve in Chianti. Go straight through the town, and on up towards Panzano in Chianti, about 6 kilometres further on. When you arrive in Panzano, we will be there to take you to the house.
The last 500 m of road leading to our house is a typical Chianti "strada bianca", a dirt-surfaced roadway.
