A five-star stay at an opulent, 16th-century Tuscan villa and Small Luxury Hotels of the World member, with breakfast, spa access and more


Mere kilometres from Florence and Tuscany and tucked away in the romantic, rolling hills of Mugello, sits the five-star Villa Le Maschere - a supremely elegant member of the exclusive Small Luxury Hotels of The World group. You've more than magical surrounds here, as the waters of Bilancino Lake twinkle in the Italian sun and rare trees in the villa's 18-hectare park provide refreshing dappled shade.

A late renaissance country home built in the second half of the 16th century, Villa Le Maschere is one of the most beautiful in the region, with a history accommodating popes and noblemen. The exterior facade is adorned with serena stone masks and the interior of the villa speaks of modernity married with tradition and innovation. Condé Nast Traveller named the villa one of the 'Best Hotels of the World 2011' and it scooped a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Rooms are elegantly appointed with light, natural colours punctuated by contrasting features. Bedheads are upholstered or in lacquered wood, while ceilings and walls are adorned with historic charm. Your Superior room is elegant and pure in style.

For more intimate dininng, try the Il DivinVino, housed in the ancient cellars where you’ll enjoy traditional fare and wine tastings.


Not far from Florence, Villa Le Maschere perfectly combines peace and convenience. The area is renowned for its vineyards and fruit farms. Bilancino Lake is the centrepiece of the area and boasts outstanding natural beauty, making it an integral part of Tuscan culture.
