Villa la Massa is a fascinating Medici dwelling of the 16th century on the outskirts of Florence. It was turned into a luxury hotel in 1948. After a complete renovation by the Villa d'Este Group in 1998 it reopened and its five hundred years of history live on, telling us tales of Renaissance splendour and the lifestyle of Florentine aristocrats in every nook. It is the sister property to the stunning Villa d'Este. The two properties were built in 1525. During the Renaissance in Tuscany many noble families built new homes. Among these are the wealthy Landinis, successful publishers, who decided to commission the construction of two houses on the banks of the Arno.
