Absolutely LOVED Villa la Massa. We arrived to Florence after being in the hectic chaos of Rome and even in 100 degree F temperatures, was a cool, welcome sigh of relief! We had a spacious room with double views of the Arno and the beautiful property. Since we arrived late, we opted for the convenience of the restaurant at the... More

Spent a few days here at the end of May and were really overwhelmed with the beauty of the hotel and the property and the level of the service. We stayed in a really beautiful and large room overlooking the Arno from all windows. There was a large walk-in closet with lots of storage and large and well-appointed bathroom. Breakfast... More

The Villa la Massa is truly a 5 star hotel. Everything about the property and service was as close to perfect as one can come. Gorgeous room and large dressing area. The enormous beds were dressed in linen, I mean the sheets were linen not cotton! They were changed daily. Chocolates each night were provided. The marble bathroom had wonderful... More

We stayed here three days in mid-June, and could not have been happier. The villa is gorgeous, and located on a bend of the Arno with verdant views in every direction. The service is extraordinary, our room was beautiful and extremely comfortable, and sitting by the pool or on the riverside terrace with drinks and snacks felt like paradise. The... More

If you are looking for a quiet, luxurious place to stay but with easy access to Florence this is a must! Yes it's expensive, but you defiantly get what you pay for here. We also stayed at another 5* hotel in Siena for 3 nights prior to this and the overall standard here was VASTLY SUPERIOR. Every member of staff... More
