Villa La Massa, part of Villa d’Este Hotels has completed a full-scale restoration of Casa Colonica, a 19th-century farmhouse villa, never open to guests before and featuring four elegant suites.

 

Located 15 minutes outside of Florence and overlooking the Chianti Valley and the Arno River, beautiful Villa La Massa was built in the 16th-century for a member of the Medici family and is surrounded by 22 acres of gardens, olive and lemon groves.

Sitting at the entrance to the grounds, the 6500 square foot Casa Colonica features four new suites (including a Junior Suite), each with private bathrooms and decor classically Tuscan. The Villa’sowners worked on the year-long restoration under the guidance of local architects and artisans to create an authentic Florentine elegance, while integrating modern technology.

Inside, Casa Colonica houses two suites upstairs as well as an additional suite and junior suite on the ground floor that can be paired together and complete with a small private garden. The design throughout is that of a modern Tuscan country house, nodding to tradition with stone walls, wood-beamed ceilings, terracotta flooring, and hand-carved woods accented by custom hand-made silk rugs of vibrant colours.

A central kitchen is stocked with modern appliances and an eight-seat dining table, while a charming internal courtyard features plush lounges and fresh jasmine, creating an ideal place for guests to relax with a book in hand.

Guests who book the Casa exclusively will be treated to complimentary chef-led cooking classes in the kitchen including Tuscan bread making at the 16th-century bread oven, which was discovered and restored as part of the renovation process, and cocktail lessons under the stars in the courtyard.

“Villa La Massa has been enchanting guests for years and we’re delighted to introduce this stunning refurbished farmhouse, which reflects the magic and romance of Tuscany. We’ve seamlessly mixed timeless elegance with stylish colors and patterns to create serene and relaxed living spaces,” said Stefano Venturi, General Manager.
