Part of the Leading Hotels of the World, Villa La Massa is the exquisite jewel of the Villa d’Este Group. The 16th Century estate sits on the banks of the Arno River, on 20 acres full of lemon trees and olive groves that surround the property. Its reflection on the Arno River renders it almost like a Renaissance painting of the most magnificent bucolic landscape.
Located just a few kilometers outside Florence, you may wish to immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of the Tuscan capital city, making use of the comfortable shuttle bus that the hotel provides. But at the end of a busy day, the peace and serenity of the Villa beckons you-so you return to a place where time and your mind, stand still.
Villa La Massa is a fascinating Medici dwelling of the 16th century on the outskirts of Florence. Its 22 acres of gardens, complete with olive groves and lemon trees, make for a pastoral setting. It was turned into a luxury hotel in 1948. After a complete renovation by the Villa d’Este Group in 1998 it reopened and its five hundred years of history live on, telling us tales of Renaissance splendour and the lifestyle of Florentine aristocrats in every nook.

Two Villas dating back to the days of the Medici (16th century): the Noble Villa (Villa Nobile), the Old Mill (Vecchio Mulino) and the more recent little Villa (Villino) are the highlights of Villa La Massa which, from an ancient dwelling of the aristocracy, was turned into a hotel in 1948. The hotel offers its guests 37 rooms, all different from one another, and all recently refurbished in the traditional Florentine style. The Cottage, intimate and more recently built two luxurious suites: the Presidential Suite and its garden overlooking the Arno river and the Park Suite, more intimate, with a view of the river and the hills.
The spacious and airy rooms are decorated with antique furniture, fabrics woven at the historic Florentine textile mills, wrought iron and woodwork from the famous old-time Florence cabinet makers. Bathrooms and their fittings are done in a style reflecting the atmosphere of times gone and are fitted with Carrara marble. Most have windows framing the beautiful Tuscan landscape.
