Wellness Residency at Villa la Massa

  • Villa la Massa 24 Via della Massa Candeli, Toscana, 50012 Italy (map)

A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, Villa La Massa is located just outside of Florence. The beautiful 16th century estate is surrounded by 22 acres of gardens with a restaurant overlooking the water and Chianti Hills, heated outdoor pool, and spa. I’ll be there this September for a wellness residency and I’d love for you to join me.

Amongst the picturesque olive groves of Villa La Massa’s 22 acres of private Tuscan countryside, I will be taking up a four-day residency brimming with wellness tips and daily expertly tutored yoga classes. Guests will be encouraged to bring awareness to their body and mind against the backdrop of the stunning Arno River and luscious landscape of the Chianti-Rufina hills. A selection of yoga classes will take place within Villa La Massa’s famed peony-filled Iris Garden as the sun rises and sinks into the sky. These classes will demonstrate how the use of breath and meditation calms the mind and leads to a path of greater happiness.

I have worked with the Chefs at Villa La Massa to creat a bespoke menu to ensure the vital link between mind, body and bowl is sustained throughout the residency. This menu will be on offer at Villa La Massa’s main restaurant Il Verrocchio renowned for serving traditional Italian gastronomic fare, including season produce grown in the Chef’s Garden, plus the hotel’s own olive oil.

Our offer includes:

  • Three-night stay

  • Buffet breakfast in the Verrocchio restaurant

  • 6 Yoga sessions with Annie throughout the residency

  • Free shuttle from/to Villa La Massa and Florence (Ponte Vecchio) on a daily basis

  • Access to the Arno Spa

  • A souvenir Yoga mat to take back home
