Villa Le Maschere in Barberino di Mugello, Italy
Located in the Tuscan countryside, just a short ride from Florence, sits the fashionable Villa Le Maschere. Its stately exterior and luxury status comes from a mélange of centuries-old tradition and cutting-edge hospitality. The building dates back to the 18th century and its architectural features - the stunning frescoes and Venetian plaster - are proof positive. Inside, a new day has dawned with a collection of modern furnishings designed and produced on Italian soil. There are 65 minimalist-style guest rooms that rest beneath hand-painted ceilings, housed in either the Chini Pavilion or the main villa. Crisp color schemes are infused with bold splashes of red, sage, eggplant and ebony, and billowy fabrics frame canopied beds and windows. Bathrooms are cloaked in cool Italian marble and outfitted with large and inviting soaking tubs. Public spaces are equally striking with ultra modern embellishments.
Italy is known for its stunning gardens, and Villa Le Maschere is no exception. A sweeping staircase leads from the terrace down to sprawling park-like grounds, where a pair of swimming pools provide a refreshing escape on warm seasonal days. There is a delightful restaurant where elegant buffets are laid out for guests to enjoy a leisurely meal. The intimate bar is a place to retreat in the evening for an aperitif and conversation. Villa Le Maschere is near Lago di Bilancino as well as the small village of Barberino di Mugello. You can also spend the day in Florence scouring the many renowned museums, piazzas and public markets - or seek out a lush vineyard for an Italian-style picnic. For a revival of tradition with a contemporary twist, experience Villa Le Maschere.

We stayed for a long weekend and I have to say this hotel is exactly how it's been described on their website. Staff were very friendly specially Sylvia in reception has been most helpful she gave us lots of useful advise that made our stay more enjoyable . Highly recommend this place for couples it's a bit too tranquil for kids but for couples it's romantic, peaceful and chilling. We didn't go to the spa but it did look good. Nice hotel but not in Florence need your car or taxi although there is a free shuttle everyday to Florence and that comes very handy.

We stayed in Villa le Maschere for 3 nights arranged by our tour operator. Of course, it is a beautiful hotel in the picturesque Tuscan countryside. But as a tourist, I would have wanted to stay some place where public transportation is easily accessible so we may explore Florence more. It is a wonderful and relaxing place to stay if you are an Italian on a holiday. The design of the hotel is a perfect mix of classic and modern. However, there are so many hallways and twists and turns inside the hotel that finding your room or lift or restaurant can be difficult. But yet it is a memorable place.
What a beautiful place this is! My husband and I enjoyed a 2 night break here for his birthday - from arrival to departure all staff we encountered greeted us warmly! Nothing was too much trouble for them! We received a lovely gift of a fruit basket for his birthday! The building is stunning! The room we had was large and very comfortable with a lovely view! Lovely bathroom too! The only (very small) downside is that we found the wifi to be a bit erratic, sometimes fine and sometimes painfully slow! As we came to relax this wasn't a big problem for us but I can see how this may be a deal breaker for some potential visitors. It's situated in the beautiful Tuscan countryside with stunning grounds! Thank you for a wonderful stay and we hope to return to enjoy you hospitality again!
