We stayed at Villa La Messa last week only for one night en route from Tuscany to Umbria as we wanted to see Florence but with three teenage kids we did not want to be cooped up in a Florence City hotel in 30 degree heat. The staff at the Villa were so welcoming and we had a fantastic suite... More

My wife and I picked this for our honeymoon, driving up from Amalfi where we had our wedding. It's perfect, just up the river out of Florence. The terrace where you eat is on a bank above the stunningly lovely river and the views across the river are magnificent. The staff are truly incredible. The pictures of the inside of... More

We stayed at this property on the recommendation of a friend who stayed here for his honeymoon. Wow. The property is amazingly beautiful, the rooms were large and elegant with breathtaking "Tuscany-like" views of the river and grounds. The service was out of this world. Tamara at the front desk was so helpful in helping us book a driver and... More

The hotel sets the standard for top class hotels, Giancarlo and his team provide the best of experiences. Everything was just so, we were spoiled as our room was upgraded to a junior suite for the week that we were there. Breakfast was wonderful with a table on the terrace by the River Arno, as well as the buffet hot... More

This hotel is the best of both worlds - surrounded by Tuscan hills, but 15 minutes from the heart of Florence. The property is spectacular, and our room on the 2nd floor overlooked the pool and the Arno. The bed was so comfortable and there is something about throwing open the shutters, letting the spring air in, and listening to... More

I have lost count of the numbers of times we have stayed here and every time it's fantastic. Giancarlo Rizzi and his team seem to surpass themselves time and time again. Whether it is the subtle changes each year to improve the ambience, newly decorated rooms or improved menus it's hard to define but the whole team, from Tamara &... More

The hotel is located on the hills surrounding Florence , in a wonderful huge park . Peaceful and located on the river Arno , an old villa with nice rooms , excellent restaurant , careful service . A shuttle takes the guests to Florence every hour , but one can spend time just walking in the park .

This is a world class elegant 37 room high end grand European hotel. I much prefer to its famous Lake Como sister. If you want this type of discrete service combined with an informality that is helped by the fabulous grounds - stay here. It beats the 4 Seasons hands down. A great hotel.

All I can say is Bravo! Three years ago my sister and I had the pleasure of staying at the villa's sister resort, the Villa d'Este in Como, so we were looking forward to our stay at the Villa la Massa. Let me just say it exceeded all our expectations. Once a year we travel together, leaving our husbands and... More
