Villa La Massa

Florence 3 nights low season from £948 per person

As Florence flourished during the 16th century, wealthy families commissioned the building of impressive countryside residences. Villa La Massa, with its noble architecture and idyllic location on the banks of the Arno is an impressive example.

A recent renovation has restored it to its original splendour giving guests a fascinating insight into the lifestyles enjoyed by Florentine aristocrats at the time of the Renaissance. It is set in 22 acres of peaceful gardens, close to the village of Candeli and just 15 minutes’ drive from Florence – a complimentary shuttle service operates to the Ponte Vecchio – and offers exactly the right balance for those looking to combine culture and relaxation. The 41 bedrooms are decorated in traditional Florentine style with local fabrics and antiques. There is a summer swimming pool in the gardens, a riverside restaurant, a tennis court, a new spa and bicycles for guests to explore the surroundings. Hotel open 12 April - 26 October.

3 night low season price from £948 per person, 3 night high season price from £1,348 per person

Florence, Venice and the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

So you can only imagine how thrilled I was when I had the opportunity to visit Florence and Venice, with a journey on the Orient Express back to London to crown the experience. I still…
