Just when we thought a stay at Villa La Massa in Florence couldn’t get any better, they announce the inauguration of their amazing Presidential Suite!
The Presidential Suite is a “haven of peace and serenity, surrounded by the olive and cypress tress of the estate’s 20-acre park”. It includes a 1500 sq ft private garden, private Jacuzzi tub and is composed of two suites – an 800 sq ft Suite Exclusive and a 500 sq ft Junior Suite.
The two suites are separated by a large living room area, complete with a working fireplace.
The perfect retreat for a family or group, the Presidential Suite is found in the smallest of the three buildings that make up this Florence Hotel’s property.
“While our hotel, with its 37 rooms, offers all of our clients sophisticated and relaxed service, the Presidential Suite takes this to another level, providing someone who would like the added bonus of complete privacy with a separate entrance, private garden and terrace and a large space all to themselves, the ability to have this without having to sacrifice the creature comforts of being in a world-class resort—food, wine, massage, entertainment, chauffeur, to name a few- all just a phone call away”, says Marco Montagnani, General Manager of Villa La Massa.
Villa La Massa was built in the 16th century and was home to several aristocratic families before being transformed into a luxury hotel in 1948. Famous guests have stayed at this hotel since then, including Clarke Gable, Winston Churchill, Barbara Hutton, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton to name a few. (It was also the site of David Bowie and Iman’s wedding)!
With 35 rooms, guests enjoy views of the gardens or of the river Arno. The design is “Renaissance style”, featuring antique furniture, four-poster beds and buffed terracotta tiles: perfect for the atmosphere of the region.
We have a good relationship with Villa La Massa, and have subsequently negotiated some decent bonuses for guests who use us to book this hotel. For example, as a Kiwi Guest, you’ll receive a complimentary upgrade (based on availability), the General Manager’s VIP amenity, complimentary breakfast and a welcome drink for two when you arrive!
