Located between Florence and the Chianti region, sitting majestically on the banks of the Arno River, Villa La Massa is a bucolic oasis. A 16th century architectural gem, it has been lovingly restored by its iconic sister property, Villa d'Este, to match the splendor of grand Tuscan villas. Timeless elegance pervades in the guest accommodations arranged in four historic buildings: the Villa Nobile; the Mulino; the Villino, with its captivating Arno Presidential Suite; and the recently restored Casa Colonica, a Tuscan farmhouse with a private kitchen that dates back to the 1400s. At Il Verrocchio restaurant, the cuisine is Tuscan-inspired, while its vaulted cellars are rich with fine Italian wines. A walk along the river leads to the Iris and the chef's gardens. There is also a beautiful pool. At the Arno Spa, the use of fragrances from the Tuscan landscape transports guests to the villa's garden. The product line is branded Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella.
