Always dreamed about living the Italian ‘Dolce Vita’ in the Tuscan hills? You are in luck: this magnificent 16th-century villa turned hotel will make your dreams come true, in pure luxury.
Let us take you behind the scenes of Villa Le Maschere, unveiling all the beautiful details of this enchanting villa, graced by the presence of Italy’s most influential artists, not to mention kings and Popes back in the day.
Nestled amid perfectly-manicured gardens in the Tuscan hills, near the quaint town of Barberino del Mugello, Villa Le Maschere is one of the most beautiful Renaissance country homes in the region.
After undergoing a major restoration bringing back to life frescoes, majolica and sculptures, Villa Le Maschere captivates the true beauty of the Renaissance period in its collection of 65 bedrooms and suites, each different in colour patterns, furnishings and fabrics.
Ancient splendour and high-end, contemporary facilities go side by side in this charming property, boasting a superb wellness centre – developed in the ancient basement of the villa with a sauna, Turkish bath, relaxation area and Jacuzzi; two outdoor pools, a state-of-the-art gym and three elegant restaurants, where you can sample some of the finest Tuscan cuisine.
Sleeping in the opulent and elegant rooms of this luxury hotel will feel like sleeping in a painting: all the rooms are fitted with the latest mod-cons and boast stunning fresco ceilings, unique bed heads and baroque furnishing.
Breakfast is served with a side of stunning countryside views at Il Cancello di Ghirieto, offering sumptuous spreads of Italian delicacies, croissants, pastries and more.
Dinner is a casual affair at Il Pioppo Nero, the chic hotel’s restaurant offering both Tuscan and Mugello traditional dishes: think famous ribollita – a Tuscan bread soup, chicken liver crostini, or a traditional Tuscan starter with cold sliced meats – all paired with Tuscan wines, of course.
If you can tear yourself away from the gorgeous swimming pool and the in-house spa, take some time to discover Florence, the ‘cradle of the Renaissance’ with the hotel’s convenient free shuttle to the city – or head to Barberino Designer Outlet – with over 100 shops of both international and Italian brand – or play a round of golf at Una Poggio Dei Medici Golf Club – Italy’s most prestigious golf club.
But if you decide to spend your days lazying by the pool, getting pampered at the spa, living the ‘dolce vita’ at Villa Le Maschere… well, we won’t judge.
