Massa Hotel Review

'There was a time when Grand Tourists chose to stay not in the centre of Florence but in opulent villas in the green belt around the city. This 16th-century Medici villa on a bucolic stretch of the Arno, open from March until the end of October, still breathes the spirit of this age of elegant, unhurried travel.'
