“Beautiful and quiet getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We stayed at the Villa Le Maschere and enjoyed the peace and beautiful surroundings. The swimming pool in particular offers warm water that does not irritate your eyes. The rich breakfast at the terrace outside with views over the valley was also very enjoyable.

We however have to mention one negative point: food prices are too high for the quality that is offered, which applies for both the dinner possibilities (which is good but not special) as for the pool bar service (example pool bar prices: ice cream 12€, beer 7€, sandwich 12€, Cola 5€, Mojito 15€, ...). People visiting this hotel can afford it, but it does not feel right.

Bring walking shoes if you are interested in a short hike in the bushy and beautiful domain (paths are not well maintained).

Room Tip: You'll enjoy the superb views over the valley choosing a room in the middle of main building fac...

We joined the Hotel "Le Maschere" for approx. a whole week. According Peters message we used the Minibus as well. My advise would be: Pls discover the other (south) side of river Arno as well. This is the must beside the several tourism spots like the Dome and other highlights. The room we got was comfortable, big and got an gorgeous view all over the Mugello landscape. Wellness and Spa was proper, clean. Staff more than kind. Well informed and helpful. Reception desk: all polite, kind and helpful. We also joined the IMM at the Mugello Racing Circuit. We also headed down south by our classic Mini-Cooper. It was an awesome ride..... We met Paddy Hopkirk, but missed the Mille Migilia . This time we joined a MINI Pisa-Tour which was great, too.

We stayed for a week at Villa Le Maschere in Mid May and were thrilled from the moment we arrived on our first day. It goes without saying that the outside of the building is stunning and is even more impressive than the photos show. The inside of the hotel has also been generously and tastefully renovated.

We loved the spa and outdoor pool with beautiful views and only wished we had spent more time there! We spent most evenings in the bar where we met many fantastic and welcoming staff who made our stay all the more special. We can highly recommend Lorenzo who was our regular barman who could make a mean cocktail but also made us feel so welcome and only added to our holiday experience. Not only does this hotel provide a wonderful stay with all the luxuries you could want but the staff consistently made every effort to make our holiday a memorable time. We hope to return again very soon!

we visited this hotel with our classic mini cooper s as we wre attending the international mini meeting 2013 at the circuit in Mugello. the hotel room was wonderful with perfect beds, cushions and bathroom, all perfect. the food at breakfast was wonderful and the restaurant good but pricey for what it was. the outside pools numbered two were inviting but the weather sadly not. the spa centre was excellent to chill in and the massage on offer good but not perfect. the staff were excellent and the hotel offers if pre booked a free minibus service to Florence a journey of 45 minutes each way which is comfortable and of course a great financial saving. we were also surrounded by the Jaguar team who had brought with them 30 Jaguar F types so as to accompany the Mille Miglia for ten minutes when it went past the hotel. In fact many drivers stopped at the hotel for a cup of tea and the Jaguar people had arranged via the hotel an excellent wine tasting at the hotel to which we were invited. Book and avoid disappointment as it is a great hotel

Room Tip: eat also at le Maschere which is a great restaurant two minutes walk from the hotel with a great win...

Just back from a weeks stay and had another fabulous time. The staff were extremely helpful in assisting us with ideas for places to see and explore. We had two lovely meals in the restaurant during our stay. The bar and restaurant staff are really friendly and efficient.
The hotel and spa were spotlessly clean and the gardens looked fantastic.
We will be back for another visit and look forward to it.

This resort is a fabulous looking one and offers a lot. However, the food was not exceptional and the service not always what you would expect in this category. It's all good but locations like this one makes one quite demanding.
I had a great and spacious room which was cleaned very well and basically it was very very good. However, some things could have been just a little better and more personal but I would certainly recommend this place to anyone!

Our stay was pleasant and there was nothing to fault.
The location in the Tuscan hills is great but we felt there was not much to do or visit in the surrounding villages.
The restaurant was great and the service really efficient.
