Description


Immersed in the heart of Tuscany, just six miles from the historic centre of Florence, this beautiful 16th century Medici palazzo and estate is nestled right next to the Arno River, surrounded by hills and over twenty acres of lush gardens full of lemon and olive groves. Three ochre and pink-coloured villas house the guest rooms and suites, each individually designed in classic Florentine style and most of them with breathtaking views spread over the original 'noble' villa, the mill house or the newer, small villa. Villa La Massa is  the perfect place to rest and unwind after a long day of touring the area or sightseeing and shopping in Florence. This delightful retreat also has its own chapel and boasts the same renowned service of its sister hotel on Lake Como, Villa d'Este, which has earned it a place as a member of ‘The Leading Hotels of the World’.
