Tuscany, Tuscany Hotels
A fine example of 16th century Medicean architecture, this dignified villa now ranks as one of Italy's finest luxury hotels. Villa La Massa enjoys an enviable semi-rural location amidst enchanting Chianti and Rufina hills on the south bank of the River Arno, yet the centre of Florence is only a 15-minute drive away.
A member of 'The Leading Hotels of the World' collection, the villa has beautifully decorated lounges and guest rooms and is housed in four buildings; the Noble Villa (Villa Nobile), the Mill (Il Mulino XV century), the little Villa (Il Villino) and the newly refurbished Casa Colonica. Guests have the opportunity to explore Florence on a regular basis using the hotel's courtesy shuttle to and from the Ponte Vecchio.
The hotel provides the exclusive Arno Spa which features cold water pools and sensory showers, a Turkish bath, sauna and a fitness room. Guests can also unwind with a classic Italian aperitivo by the swimming pool before enjoying superb Tuscan specialities on the terrace of the elegant Restaurant Il Verrocchio, overlooking the peaceful River Arno and the gently sloping Tuscan hills, or in the private 14th century wine cellar.
The hotel has 51 rooms (official rating 5 star). Child prices apply to ages 2-12 years.
