Luxury villa shuttle to and from Florence promoted day trips of site seeing and shopping.... More

We spent a few nights at Villa La Massa before venturing to the heart of Florence. We wish we had spent more time at this Villa though. The tranquility and peacefulness was matched by the best customer service we have ever encountered. From the restaurant staff to the concierge, everyone was amazing. The extra special amenities made us feel welcome... More

Unfortunately, we were only able to stay for one night but we loved it. Peaceful, serene, bucolic setting right on the river with nice views of the Tuscan hills. It's a short shuttle ride to Florence. Professional, friendly staff.
