Villa Le Maschere

Villa Le Maschere

Map
75 Via Nazionale, Barberino di Mugello, 50031, Italy

Set on a peninsula fronting Lake Bilancino, this villa occupies 44 private wooded acres in the Mugello hills. Abandoned by its noble family in 1963, Villa Le Maschere fell into disrepair, until a painstaking five-year restoration revived much of its late-Renaissance glory. Since its reopening in Spring 2009 as a five-star hotel, it has again seemed worthy of the popes and kings who once sojourned here. Contemporary elegant furnishings are found in the main villa’s 52 rooms, which, as you move up in price, retain more and more 17th-century features, including frescoes, stone mosaics, and elaborate gilded archways. There’s refined Tuscan cuisine at the restaurant, a lovely pair of swimming pools, and golf privileges at nearby sister property Poggio dei Medici.
