Asilo Masi offers 8 bedrooms (including 2 suites) in a restored historic mansion located in Capannoli, a village on the hills of Tuscany, very close to Andrea Bocelli's Teatro del Silenzio. Free WI-FI, a cosy lounge, a library, an immaculate garden with centennial olive trees, home-grown herbs or fruit trees and a jacuzzi pool make of this hidden gem the perfect choice for a relaxed stay.

Countess Cristina Gotti Lega combined her love for arts, food, luxury interiors and Tuscan hospitality when she redesigned the historic 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 in 2000. After years of hosting her friends and also private guests, the Countess finally launched Asilo Masi as a luxury boutique hotel in 2013.

For lovers of food, art, culture and history. For those in the know, those looking for romance, or simply for those looking for the real Tuscany. Having entertained Garibaldi, Mascagni and Puccini, the Contessa Cristina Gotti-Lega has curated a truly aristocratic Tuscan experience for her guests. Her own antiques, artwork and traces of her family, intermingle with the beautiful design, to give the perfect base from which to visit Pisa, Florence, the Chianti Region and the rest of this unspoilt corner of Tuscany.
