Villa La Massa
A Medicean villa on 22 acres of pristine gardens
What it is
A romantic countryside retreat for lovers of food and wine.
What it isn't
A contemporary hotel with a young, party-going crowd.
What we think
On the outskirts of Florence surrounded by Tuscan hills, this Medicean villa is the definition of an oasis. Views of olive groves and lemon trees are visible from any spot on the property including the 51 rooms, divided between five historic buildings: the Villa Nobile, the Mill, the Villino, the Casa Colonnica, and the Limonaia. The spirit of the Renaissance is still palpable in the first two villas decorated with sublime canopied beds, frescoes, tapestries, silks, and brocades—while the other three are beautifully furnished in a more contemporary Florentine style.
The location makes it an ideal destination for food- and wine-enthusiasts. In particular, lovers of truffles and Chianti will rejoice at the options to truffle hunt at a nearby Villa and tour the Chianti region’s vineyards by Ferrari. Though this is a haven for foodies; golf, tennis, spa treatments and cultural tours are just a few of the other activities to fill up your days.
You're here because
This Medicean villa is the perfect place to enjoy both the city and peaceful Tuscan countryside.
The vaulted ceilings and rustic decor of La Massa’s wine cellar transport you to the 16th century as you take your first sip of authentic Tuscan vino.
