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

We stayed 3 nights in Villa La Massa 16th century palace on the outskirts of Florence. Its a 5 star hotel and everything is according to that standard, from the setting, the place itself, the food, to the service. Special thanks to Sylvano, Luciano and to all the others (don't remember all the names) who did everything to make our... 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

This is will be one of the best hotels you will ever stay in. They call it your home and that is how they treat it They do all they can to make every part of your trip special. You simply will not go wrong. They are not the cheapest but well worthy of ever extra penny you will spend

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

This villa is very nice. It is expensive but you can see why, since it is beautiful and the service is excellent. The food is very good and the rooms are quite nice. Visiting this place was a great experience.

The location of the place is indeed great, you get up in front of the Arno river and there is only peace. The view itself is worth the trip. Rooms are spatious and warm and the level of the service is what you would expect from a hotel like this. The food used not to be as great as the... More

How many opportunities do you get in your life to experience staying in a 500+ year old Tuscan Villa? Villa La Massa, located on the Arno River on the outskirts of Florence in the Tuscan Countryside is absolutely breathtaking.
