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 22-acre villa is the definition of an oasis. Views of olive groves and lemon trees are visible from any spot on the property including the 37 authentic Tuscan countryside rooms and suites. The Renaissance-inspired interiors (exposed wooden beam ceilings, rich fabric drapes and elaborate headboards) are true to the 16th-century Medicean roots of the property. 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.
