Luxury and intimate style
A member of The Leading Hotels of The World, Villa La Massa became part of the Villa d'Este Group in 1998. Its three buildings, the Villa Nobile of the 15th century, the Vecchio Mulino and the more recent Villino were lovingly restored to the splendour of grand Tuscan villas which is reflected in its décor and atmosphere.
The Renaissance aura is palpable, combining the most contemporary comforts and frescoes on the ceilings, antique furniture with florentine fabrics and solid wooden canapy beds. Each accommodation offer a breathtaking view on the Chianti- Rufina hills, the unique iris gardens and the Arno river.
The Arno Suite, located in the "Villino", is a haven of peace and serenity overlooking the river and the park of olive groves. Offers a 1400sft of residential space as well as a private garden and a gazebo dining area. A truly home away from home for those seeking ultimate privacy.
The "Villino", the cosiest among the three buildings can be exclusively rented for romantic stays or family reunions.
Delights and Romanticism
Excellent tuscan specialties and fine wines can be served on the terrace of "Il Verrocchio" restaurant where guests can enjoy the view of the Arno River surrounded by the Chianti Rufina hills as a picturesque frame of Michelangelo.
A candlelight dinner is even more delightful if matched with a Chianti red wine from the private 14th century cellar, where a Sommelier can unveil the local wineries' secrets during a wine tasting.
