What we love
Authentic interior among simply stunning landscape!
Setting the scene
Villa La Massa sits on the banks of the Arno River, only 6 miles from the Ponte Vecchio in the heart of Florence, the property is beautifully surrounded by 22 acres of gardens in the rolling hills of the Chianti Region.
The 37 guest rooms are all individually designed and each parading it's own character, decorated with antique furnishings and majestic four poster beds - the rooms here are as elegant and grand as the landscape that surrounds. The most recent of additions - the Presidential Suite and the Parco Suite epitomise tranquility and seclusion, situated in the Villino, the estates smallest building. Book independently or as a whole.
Il Verocchio is the hotels restaurant, it has a unique dining hall with vaulted ceilings and a perfectly positioned terrace overlooking the Arno and the famous undulating hills beyond. Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant produced national and local cuisine produced with precision and skill and presented with undoubted pride. The pool bar is situated as it sounds and offers light snacks, cocktails, wines, whiskies and more! In keeping with the theme of the hotels, both spaces are grand, authentic and extremely luxurious.
The hotel itself and the natural area offer the chance to relax and hideaway from the bustle of everyday life. There is the wonderful Arno Spa, a large pool and secluded accommodation brimming with magnificent views and exceptional comfort. But should you wish for a little adventure and sporting action on your trip then enjoy tennis on the clay courts down the road, play any one of the three golf courses in the locality, or horse riding, biking, hiking and more. But, before heading home be sure you take the short trip into Florence for the culture, restaurants, history and truly memorable Italian experience.
Villa La Massa works well for an active family holiday, but perhaps as long as the children are not too young as there is no childrens' club or amenities in place.
It is a 30 minute drive from Florence International Airport
