Villa Le Maschere
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We were looking for a relaxing pampering retreat and we could not have done a better choice.

After a little taste of beauty, luxury and peace at Villa Le Maschere, we decided to extend our weekend getaway to the whole week. We were delighted by the Villa and the surrounding park, the pools and spa being an oasis of peace.

Truly a beautiful hidden secret corner of Tuscany.

Mornings started off with a terrific breakfast, throughout the day we enjoyed the millions comforts thank to the exceptional help and kindness of the staff, dinner on the open sky terrace, and at night we had the chance of experiencing different rooms of the villa and the suites, which are absolutely magnificent.

Regardless of the fact that you do or do not play golf, the Golf club Poggio dei Medici, 10 min away by car, is a must see: one of the most beautiful golf clubs in the Country and definately the most beautiful in central Italy. The club belongs to the same property as the Villa so exploit the benefits from their close relationship.

Sincerely reccomended to all.

Room Tip: completely different rooms deserve to be seen

This hotel is sited in a massive Italian villa that has been painstakingly restored to its current magnificence. We had one of the well appointed Junior suites with a magnificent ceiling.and decor. The grounds are lovely and the service friendly and attentive.

My only negative comment is not the fault of the hotel at all. I am accustomed to annual visits to Tuscany, normally further South, and am in love with the stunning countryside and medieval villages. This hotel is situated about 40 mins North of Florence and although the local hills and forests are picturesque, I found the area much less appealing than Central Tuscany, with much less to see and do. If this is where you want to come, I would be surprised if there is anywhere better to stay.

The hotel is a beautiful old villa that has been restored, upon a hill with a view that is more painting like than real, absolutely beautiful. The hotel grounds are big and great for walks, and if you have a dog, the dog will love it, at least our dog Orwell did.
While the hotel itself is in a great location, a nice room, nice pool, great common areas as well as a very nice restaurant, the thing that really made the stay special was the staff. Everyone was polite, helpful, professional, friendly, and made you feel welcome, there was no stiffness but it all just felt natural and comfortable, one of the best experiences we have ever had. This is a hotel where you want to spend your day at, where you feel at home, we felt no need to leave at all. And we will be back for sure!

Recently travelled here with my fiancé and had a wonderful trip...Our concierge Andrea was so helpful with all bookings for car service, recommendations for restaurants in florence and most of all my shopping :)...Lorenzo the bartender making our Venetian Spritz everyday and knowing what we like and when was the best....And lets not forget Michele' the restaurants head guy was such a pleasure to talk to everyday (and quite funny)...The entire staff from start to finish really made this trip such a great experience for us....And if you get the chance their white chocolate mousse is definitely a "must" try...Then to top it all off we got upgraded when we arrived. We certainly plan a return in the future.

I have lived and travelled all over the world and this is the first time i have reviewed a hotel.

Located about 30 mins north of Florence its in a quiet area with beautiful scenery - lake, rolling hills, etc. We were fortunate enough to start our stay with a free upgrade and it really epitomised the service we had for the rest of the trip. Andrea and the rest of the front desk staff were incredibly helpful with restaurant recommendations, cars, etc. Michele, Lorenzo and the rest of the restaurant and bar staff were friendly and helpful and all spoke excellent English.

The hotel itself is beautiful and has a nice terrace with a beautiful view - great for lunches and dinners. The pool area is nicely set up and the spa is amazing. The gym was on the basic side but there is a walking/running path through the trees which is handy.

Its a 5 star hotel, so its not for budget travellers, but the rooms, the food and the wine are all great value relative other luxury resorts

All in all a wonderful place to relax for a week of great food, wine and friendly service. We will definitely be going back.

This hotel represents the ultimate luxury taste and the richness of the Italian cultural heritage.
The room is delightfully located on a hill close to Barberino di Mugello, in a peaceful haven.
The rooms are beautifully finished and the modernity of the interior decor alternates with the charming aspects of the long historical patterns of the villa.
The staff is very efficient and cordial and stays at the client's full disposal.
The spa is lovely and the restaurant gives a wide offer of great quality food and a surprisingly nice selection of wines.

Having spent 30 plus years traveling the world my wife and I can say that this hotel is without question deserving of its five stars and all around excellent. We have stayed in every type and price of hotel in virtually every European, Asian, American, country. This time we were on a six week jaunt through Europe which included northern Italy with no pre bookings. We found this place and wow, everything they do is just so right. The morning of our arrival we booked a junior suite and on arrival they upgraded us to a delux, the room is very spacious and kitted out with everything one would need to the extent that you could arrive with nothing except the clothes on your back and be very comfortable. The whole pool area is beautiful with two pools, a spa/hot tub with every type of jet you could imagine, sauna, steam room (all complimentary) and a full range of pay for spa services. In a few previous posts I noticed that people spoke of the food cost, the food is not cheap but when you are staying in a magnificently restored national monument, with the level of service provided, I would not expect it to be. If you want the total experience it is worth it, if all you want is food then perhaps not. By the way I also noticed that somebody mentioned the restaurant across the road, we also went there for lunch which was also very good but at euro 75 for two that is not cheap. A beautiful array of continental style food is available for breakfast included in room price. I would agree with the managers comment that compared to similar properties they are not expensive. Never left the property since arriving except fora walk and lunch, I think that sums it up. Just one very minor comment, the walking trails on the property need some care.
