Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The villa is dreamy. I wished we could have tried the spa but there were so many places to see we never had the time. I would comment that the bar prices and the restaurant prices were extremely high. We never ate dinner at the restaurant. We ate at restaurants in the area instead. I have to say in nearly three weeks of traveling in Italy and staying at different levels of luxury, la Massa had the least impressive scrambled eggs, which I thought odd for such a lovely hotel. And because of its location by the Arno river rehabs, the mosquitos in October were not welcome guests in our room...and they don’t use screens!i wish I had brought some of my insect repellent impregnated clothes that I had just used in Africa the month before. That aside, I would love to return to La Massa and just chill....

Best of all worlds
Excellent intimate hotel within 15 mins of the city and vineyards of Tuscany; the staff are extremely personable and really take care. We are clients of their sister hotel Villa d’Este in Como and would highly recommend Villa la Massa as well; feels like its your own home; we have already booked to return with friends.

Magnificent!!
My wife and I spent part of our honeymoon at this magnificent hotel. The attention from the moment we walked into the property was beyond spectacular. The staff is extremely helpful, kind, caring, and beyond attentive. We had breakfast every morning at their beautiful restaurant which overlooks the Arno river and the food is so delicious. We also had an exquisite dinner on Saturday evening with exceptional service and attention. There is nothing bad we can say about this beautiful property and their staff. The reception desk, the wait staff at the restaurant, and management are all passionate about making sure every single guest leaves wanting to come back. To say the least, we did not want to leave and will be sure to come back soon.
