Villa La Massa

Via della Massa 24, Candeli, Florence, Tuscany, 50012, Italy

In this tall and imposing villa, 15 minutes out of town, public rooms are outfitted in Renaissance style and guest rooms have high ceilings, plush carpeting, and deep bathtubs. A pool and beautiful views of the Arno are bonuses. So, too, is the up-to-the-minute spa, which includes a sauna, Turkish bath, and an "emotional shower." The superb Il Verocchio restaurant serves Tuscan classics in a former 15th-century mill; local seasonal ingredients dot the menu, and a pianist quietly plays old standards while you eat. A shuttle bus runs every hour to and from the center of Florence, but the place is so peaceful, you might not want to bother.
