A 3 night stay at Villa La Massa was not long enough! From the moment we drove though the impressively large iron gates that opened automatically and caught a glimpse of the hotel we knew we had found a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of life. All the staff were friendly and welcoming from the moment we arrived. The... More

We booked this for a 10 year wedding anniversary, so we wanted it to be special, and it certanly was. It's in the middle of nowhere, so if your looking for privacy and quiet, you'll certainly get it here. I asked our travel agent to make it special for us on our arrival. Disappointed after spending so much we had... More

We ended up at this hotel fleeing the bad weather in the Alps and seeking a little pampering after 2 weeks of camping and hiking. The hotel entourage is impressive... Stone staircases, grand halls with an impressive medieval character complemented by cosy seating areas. We have a small suite and the room has all required facilities for a 3 person... More

Stayed at the hotel after a week long cruise from Barcelona to Rome. Chose this hotel after great experiences at Villa d'este on Lake Como. The hotel is much smaller than Villa d'este, but offers so much that we were only unhappy that our stay was so short. This is an amazing hotel that blends all what is new with... More

Beautiful property! Stunning views, great food, wine and service! Rooms are outstanding. Close to Florence but feels out in the countryside. Service was impeccable.we enjoyed the pool, walk/park, health club, tennis and a cooking lesson with the head chief. Good access to Florence via shuttle and to Tuscan countryside. Would absolutely stay here again. Thank you!

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!
