Casa della Pia

Massa Marittima, Grosseto
Bed & Breakfast

To a 1000-year-old Tuscan palazzo add comfort, creativity and fine company, beauty, charm and history: you get an utterly memorable place


1 room


Rooms sleep 2


The legendary Italian gift for marrying ancient and modern is alive and well in Casa della Pia (a character in Dante’s Purgatorio). Layered into the 1000-year-old walls, the owners’ restoration of the top floor of the palazzo is pristinely elegant and effortlessly cool. They are outgoing, passionate about their house and artistic to their fingertips. Costanza ran art academies and your bedroom is hung with Gian Paolo’s excellent watercolours. The guest room, separate from their quarters, has a cheerful new shower room and a fabulous view over rooftops to the Maremma hills and out to the Tyrrhenian Sea. It is big, with ‘Nonna’s’ lovely antique furniture round a working fireplace and a fine new bed: turn your head and watch the sun set in glory. Coffee, tea and biscuits are provided but no breakfast may be served: seize the opportunity to explore the many caffès on the same street – and Massa Marittima, a jewel of a medieval town with a star-shaped piazza at its heart. Beyond, discover forests and Etruscan ruins, wineries (some designed by world-famous architects), beaches and geothermal sites where the earth breathes out magic mists.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Costanza Soprana

  • Whoever comes to Massa Marittima will enjoy the beauty of the ancient city, with its unique monuments and at the same time enjoy the nearby sea and lake Accesa, good food, wine, spas, history, nature and sports. Being in the hills, the climate is mild
  • A portrait of Pia was made by the English painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti, involved in the lesson of Dante, who was a model of inspiration for him with regard both to art and life. Rossetti created beautiful works like this, inspired by the Divine Comedy.
  • Despite of its being situated in the city centre, the room overlooks the wide landscape of the Tuscan Maremma; on a clear day, you can see the Elba Island and particularly fascinating sunsets. This position turns the room into a quiet and peaceful place
  • A unique room, with a separate entrance and a private bathroom. Recently refurnished with eco-sustainable criteria, and decorated with works of art, antique and contemporary furniture, and a wide double bed. On request, we can add a single bed or a cot
  • The room is equipped with all the amenities: free wi-fi, TV, facilities (cups, dishes, glasses, cutlery), teapot and teas, refrigerator, floor heating. The owner Costanza lives on the same floor, available for guests to make their stay more comfortable
  • The bathroom combines the most modern facilities with classical settings. You can get in straight from the room by a wooden ladder and is equipped with high-quality bathroom fixtures and accessories, electric towel and hairdryer, soap and shower dispenser
