Dine Overlooking the Arno River in the Medici-Style Villa La Massa, Florence

November 20, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Villa La MassaLive it up like a Medici at the gorgeous Villa La Massa on the outskirts of Florence. Nestled on the banks of the Arno River, this 16th century estate is the sister property to the celebrated Villa d'Este on Lake Como (a haunt of George Clooney). Though just a short drive from the shopping and arts scene of Florence, the Villa La Massa is secluded in a pastoral setting of gardens, olive groves, and lemon trees, exuding Renaissance splendor. One of the best aspects of this stunning property: Il Verrocchio Restaurant, with its magnificent outside terrace overlooking the Arno and the famous Rufina hills. The bountiful breakfast buffet includes various fruit juices, fruit, cheeses, Tuscan cured meats, cereals, yogurt, organic jams and marmalade, prosecco, and fresh eggs, cooked to your liking.
