This is my third time to the Villa la Massa and it gets better each time. The setting, the beautifully appointed rooms, the marvelous food, and the kind and friendly staff made this trip so memorable. This time I brought a small culinary group for a tour of Tuscany, so my needs were multiplied by 12 individual tastes. Tamara at... More

We spent two weeks in Italy and, MUCH to our regret, only had a chance to stop here for lunch. I can't wait to return and spend days in days in this Eden. The food was excellent, the staff gracious and attentive, the tranquility and serenity of the hotel was sublime. After leaving Florence (which we found the most crowded... More

This hotel is a treasure! Located just 15 minutes outside of Florence with frequent shuttle service into the city. After a hectic day in Florence for shopping and touring museums; you return to manicured lawns, a beautiful pool, wonderful restaurant on the Arno River and a world class spa. The rooms are well appointed and the staff is eager to... More

All I can say is, sublime, tranquil. Staff were amazing along withe food. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who would like to get away from the hassell and busy city centre. There was a free shuttle bus service to and from the ciry centre.

We spent three very enjoyable days at the Hotel Villa la Massa, 13 to 15 October 2014. The building is a beautiful palazzo set in several acres of rural landscape, full of original features including wonderful frescoed ceilings. We stayed in one of the hotel’s well appointed, spacious and quiet suites with a lovely view of the Arno river. We... More

We stayed here in September for our Wedding Anniversary. We couldn't have stayed in a more magical place, with wonderful staff who were so attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The hotel is in perfectly manicured grounds and very stylish. Our room was really beautiful, with fantastic views of the river Arno. We arranged a trip out one day to see the... More

With an awe-inspiring view of the Arno and the villa property from suite 34,my wife Pat and I settled in to a relaxing stay courtesy of Giancarlo Rizzi. The villa is a small piece of heaven. During our stay, Giancarlo invited us to a wine tasting given by Salvatore Ferragamo which was memorable particularly when my wife said she was... More

There are two ways to visit a busy city like Florence. Stay in the middle and lose yourself in the hustle and bustle both day and night or stay close by and retreat elsewhere to escape the throngs as when you feel like it. On our recent visit to Florence we went with the latter and chose Villa La Massa... More

My wife and I were celebrating 40 years and wanted a trip of life time. Every review of Villa La Massa reinforces it as one of the finest hotels in the world, and we have returned here for the 3rd time. The experience of Villa La Massa can open up the history and culture of Tuscany / Florence from management... More

Beautiful setting, impeccable service (front and back of house), great attention to detail and delicious food. Truely spoiling experience. Tranquilty slight disrupted by local busy train tracks, not enough to spoil my stay.
