You find yourself in a place by chance and feel vibrations going through your entire body: that was how our story at La Cerreta began. We left our home and jobs and came to live here. Then the need to share this energy became so strong that we decided to build small facilities to accommodate our friends. The fields, vegetable gardens and animals became our "job". When we needed drinking water for the animals, we began digging in search of it. And we found thermal spring water. It was as though Nature was telling us what to do: offer its marvellous gift to everyone.
La Cerreta is not simply a vacation on a holiday farm, but a lifestyle. It means freeing yourself from the hustle and bustle, from tv and internet, from meetings and ringing phones to rediscover the tranquility and inspiration offered by Nature. It is a reinvigorating experience in simplicity: stone farmhouses surrounded by green woods, products from the land served at the table and moments of serenity and silence for you to enjoy.
Tuscany offers history, landscapes and a climate that are unique in Italy. Panoramic views, flavors, scents and culture, historical buildings, castles, archeological sites and gardens make our region enjoyable year round. It is a place that blends the charm of local folklore with a passion for historical events and captivates people of every age from all over the world.
La Cerreta wants to open a window on this region of incredible and indisputable value by inviting our guests to discover it and experience it to the fullest. That way either a short weekend or a long vacation may become a longlasting memory and source of inspiration.
So, while you are enjoying La Cerreta, you may find it nice to visit...
A stay at our farmhouses naturally complements your experience of extended wellbeing begun with a visit to the spa.
Our standard accommodation includes half-board (dinner, overnight accommodation and breakfast). All of the rooms are ensuite and far from the usual "technological temptations", and each room is unique, inspired by one of the elements and natural resources that embrace us in this splendid valley. With water, Earth, woods or pink marble, each room is a page from a story that you can read to discover the essence of our farm and to experience all the surroundings that distinguish La Cerreta: 70 hectares of verdant wide open space, wooded hills, olive groves and animal farms.

Built in the late 1800s and recently renovated, the I Cerri farmhouse owes its name to the surrounding trees. Two centenary holm oaks welcome guests to the building, built of riverstones and coated with old plaster. It houses four rooms with ensuite bathrooms: two with patios on the ground floor (the Ricordi and Marmo Rosa rooms), and the other two with balconies on the first floor (the Castagno and Carbonaio rooms).

The entire estate is named after La Cerreta, the main farmhouse which was built in the eighteenth century. The ground floor houses a kitchen and restaurant in the central area, while two guest rooms, the Cantina and Carraia rooms, are located along the sides.
The Cantina room
This farmhouse takes its name from a roof tile with two small paw prints. Together with the I Cerri farmhouse this structure is part of a small nucleus of buildings going back to the late 1800s which were once devoted to the harvest and preservation of chestnuts, a source of sustenance and income for the inhabitants of Sasseta. The farmhouse Le Orme offers two rooms with ensuite bath, both on the ground floor and constructed entirely of river stones. The Terra room to the west, and the Acqua room to the east are separated by a small open gallery.
Stanza della Terra
There was nothing but overgrown fields. But what was there felt real to us. We were captivated by this feeling from the very start at La Cerreta. We followed it and found the same harmony with Nature experienced by our grandparents, but which is overcome nowadays by the desire to master the environment. Later we were offered another gift: a thermal spring discovered by chance as we were searching for water for our livestock. We have left it free to gush and flow along streams and cascades, carrying its message of energy and dynamism to everyone.
This is a place linked with Nature where forgotten harmony is rediscovered through a unique combination of elements and knowledge. It all begins with water which springs forth naturally from an underground basin at a constant temperature of 51°C and is classified as hyperthermal water containing salt, sulphate and calcium. Due to its particular concentration of sulphates, calcium precious minerals and oligoelements, it has therapeutic benefits for the respiratory system, skin and musculoskeletal system.
Le Terme di Sassetta spa is part of a extended wellbeing path, a piece in a mosaic comprised of listening, self-discovery and communing with Nature in the great system of earthly and cosmic energies.
The effects of a thermal spring water unique in the world are linked with holistic pathways and treatments utilizing only fresh products from our kitchen gardens and farm, and combined with techniques and massages from ancient western and eastern traditions. This harmony of elements and knowledge follows the seasons' natural rhythms and provides profound health benefits for the body and mind.
