Home > Hotels >  Villa la Massa

Villa La Massa is a glamorous 5-star resort in the Tuscan countryside near Florence, housed in a stunning 14th-century estate that was once the country house of eminent European aristocrats.

With each corner designed to capture its rich history, the hotel oozes luxury and exclusivity and has drawn many well-known guests over the years including Winston Churchill, Elisabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and David Bowie.
The property is surrounded by a magnificent 22-acre park with a splendid iris garden, a series of lovely paths leading to the river and even a chef’s garden with home-grown vegetables and aromatic herbs.
The elegant Il Verrocchio Restaurant delights guests’ palates with Italian and Tuscan delicacies served on a beautiful terrace overlooking the Arno river, while the Tuscan Bristrot offers delicious lunches. Cutting-edge cocktails prepared with the exclusive liqueurs of Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella fill the menu of the Medicean Bar, while the finest Tuscan wines can be tasted in the hotel’s 15th-century cellar.
For those looking to simply relax, the on site spa has a range of treatments and massages to soothe body, mind and soul and come complete with Turkish bath, sauna, Roman pool with hydro-massage, sensory showers, and two cabins for treatments. There are also an outdoor heated pool and a gym. What’s more, the hotel’s staff can arrange a series of tours to explore private villas and gardens of Tuscany.


Villa La Massa features 51 luxury rooms, all unique and divided into 5 classical Tuscan-style buildings: the Noble Villa, the Villino, The Mill, Casa Colonica and La Limonaia. The décor of the Noble Villa, the Villino and The Mill evokes the Renaissance atmosphere, with canopy beds, elegant fabrics, boiseries, frescoed ceilings, tapestries, refined marble bathrooms. Each room is a perfect combination of classic sophistication and warm elegance, along with all the modern comforts. Casa Colonica and La Limonaia have both been completely restored and refurbished, with a typical Tuscan style that is in harmony with the atmosphere of Villa La Massa whilst also offering a more contemporary feel. The furniture and the various interior details, such as lamps and pictures, were masterfully designed by local craftsmen. The colors are earthy with bright dashes, giving the atmosphere a lively and fresh touch. Each room offers wonderful views of the park, the Chianti hills or the Arno river,  with the fairytale-inspired surroundings allowing guests to immerse themselves in peaceful relaxation and romanticism.
