Editorial review:

Villa La Massa dates back to the 16th century and is south of the city. It offers guests easy access to the rest of Tuscany. The food is delectable and the rooms are gorgeous. The concierges care about guests and organize activities such as biking and horseback riding. There's shopping on the Ponte Vecchio, with free shuttles to it. The hotel is open from March through October.

Overview

Enjoying a cosy location on the banks of the Arno River, the luxurious five-star Villa la Massa welcomes its guests since 1948. Its 16th century Medicean mansion with traditional Tuscan and Florence touches perfectly matches that of its surroundings – the woodlands of the Firenze region with its picturesque landscapes and crystal blue rivers hide the dwelling from the vanity of vanities.

Decorated with marble, stone and wood, Villa la Massa has recently experienced careful renovation to offer its guests all modern amenities and conveniences. The mansion itself consists of three villas, the Noble Villa, the Old Mill, and the Villino, where you can find several meeting rooms with all necessary equipment, outdoor heated swimming pool, the stat-of-the-art fitness center and a number of sport activities.

All 47 guestrooms at the Villa la Massa feature individual decor with stylish furnishing, exclusive drapery and colourful fabrics. Both business and leisure tourists are certain to appreciate complementary internet access, separate working and sitting areas and in-room direct dial phone.

Villa la Massa boasts a cosy restaurant, the Verrocchio Restaurant, which features elegant decor with some wonderful views over the Rufina hills. You will taste delicious dishes of national and international cuisine carefully prepared by the Executive Chef Andrea Quagliarella and his team.

Although being an urban mansion, Villa la Massa enjoys excellent connection by public transport with city buses running their routes from the nearby bus station.

Year renovated:   2011.  Number of rooms:   37.

                    Villa la Massa is located in a picturesque Florentine region with lush forests and crystal blue rivers.

There you will find Piazza della Signoria square, the heart of the historic center and a free open-air sculpture exhibit. In addition, you are exposed to the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the 13th century Gothic duomo. You will be magnified by the 14th century Ponte Vecchio, which is the first Florence bridge across the Arno River and the only surviving Medieval bridge in Florence. When crossing Ponte Vecchio to Giardino di Boboli you will find yourself in the huge park with its Pitti Palace, fountains and unforgettable views over the Florence.
