Located on the banks of the River Arno and surrounded by a Tuscan landscape of olive groves, vineyards and rolling hills, Villa La Massa is a captivating retreat of luxury and serenity.

Set in extensive grounds with landscaped lawns and a large outdoor pool, the five-star hotel occupies the former 16th-century country estate of Florentine aristocrats. It has 51 individually styled rooms and suites, two restaurants, a fully-equipped gym and a pampering spa.

Unwind and destress in the spa or spend your days lounging by the pool. Explore the gardens and paths of the 10-hectare estate on foot or bicycle, taking in the colours and scents of the Tuscan countryside. Alternatively, go horse riding, take a scenic drive by car or Vespa scooter or enjoy a bird’s eye view in a hot air balloon.

With so much on your doorstep, it is tempting not to stray far from Villa La Massa. Yet the artistic and cultural attractions of Florence are just a shuttle bus away. You’ll enjoy discovering an abundance of treasures in the Renaissance city’s pretty piazzas and cobbled streets, from paintings by Botticelli, frescoes by Gozzoli and sculptures by Michelangelo to thriving café, crafts and contemporary art scenes.

Then it’s back to Villa La Massa to relax and recuperate, perhaps with a book by the pool or sipping a cocktail on the terrace. And when you’ve recharged your batteries, head out for dinner at Il Verrocchio, where gourmet cuisine and views of the Arno and the Chianti hills promise to be the perfect end to your Tuscan day.

The prize for two people includes:

  • Three nights in a Junior Suite at Villa La Massa, on a bed and breakfast basis; 
  • a spa treatment; 
  • a cooking class with wine tasting; and 
  • a three-course dinner with wines paired by the sommelier at Il Verrocchio restaurant.
