We had two rooms in the main building which were beautifully decorated in a traditional style but very well maintained. Bathrooms large and luxurious. What really made our stay so special was...

Beautiful place to stay just a few minutes from the busyness of the city. A great respite from touring, elegant and lovely gardens along the Arno River. Best overall experience of the three 5-star hotels we stayed in in Italy.

We decided to begin our ten day family vacation to Italy at the beautiful and serene Villa La Massa. Five members of our family had never been to Italy and based on the extraordinary helpfulness of Tamara, even before we arrived, we were anticipating a wonderful experience. After enjoying three heavenly days at Villa La Massa, "wonderful" does not even... More

This 15th century converted bishops residence was very relaxing. The service was tremendous and all were very friendly it is extremely well appointed. The morning breakfast buffet had tremendous variety and was outstanding. We would definitely like to stay at Villa la Massa again.

Villa La Massa is a beautiful boutique hotel situated on the banks of the Arno river. A peaceful haven in a picturesque Tuscan setting yet only 15 minutes away from the many attractions of Florence. While I can list the food, accomodation, property, spa treatments and facilities all as outstanding, for me the stand out feature of Villa La Massa... More
