The Tuscan sun warms wrought-iron chairs and jasmine scents the air in the hidden courtyard of this 19th-century farmhouse that’s been given a country-estate makeover. The look is classic—stone floors, ceiling beams, terracotta tile, marble surfaces—but the renovation was recent. From the setting on the banks of the Arno River, it’s only a few kilometers to the center of Florence.
Stop to smell the flowers, quite literally, at the outdoor sitting areas in the courtyard or listen to the breeze rustle in the trees while stretched out on a lounger in the private garden. The residence is part of Villa La Massa, which was built in the 14th century as a country house. It’s since been transformed into a luxury hotel, but still sits on 22 acres of gardens, olive groves, and lemon trees that are just waiting to be strolled.
The villa itself has gone from humble farmhouse to a 6,500-square-foot retreat with 4 new bedroom suites. Look for classic Tuscan touches such as stone and cotto floors, beamed and vaulted ceilings, and stone surfaces in the living and dining rooms, along with modern conveniences in the fully equipped eat-in kitchen.
With a pool, spa, riverfront restaurant, a choice of bars, and a wine cellar where you can book tastings, Villa La Massa has plenty to entertain. But you can also do as Florentine aristocrats once did and pop into the city to discover its iconic red-roofed architecture and the Renaissance masterpieces that fill its museums.
