villa le Maschere

Unique luxury villa among nature, art and history, a few kilometers from Florence. Built in the second half of the sixteenth century by the Bettini family, it was later acquired by the Florentine family, who began to enlarge and restructure the house, and to reorganize the park with new avenues and an Italian style garden. By the 18th and 19th centuries it was considered one of the most beautiful Tuscan villas.

Twenty two masks carved from local pietra serena stone, some classical and some grotesque, decorate the facade of the Villa, one of the most beautiful late Renaissance country homes in Tuscany.

Nature and art, water and silence, are the magical backdrop to the 65 bedrooms and suites and the 8 events rooms. These rooms sit in the midst of a romantic park of 18 hectares dotted with sequoia and rare trees, alongside an Italian-style garden and two pools. Inside the park, just a few steps from the villa, is the former ‘gardener’s house’, facing onto the small Italian garden.

The timeless elegance of the Chini style characterizes the Pavilion’s 13 bedrooms and suites, where the Liberty style is given a contemporary twist.

Chini Pavilion is the ideal setting for a pleasant escape from the stress of everyday life. Cool off in the pools, among the ancient oak trees of the garden (designed by the architect Poggi) enjoying the heat and sun of the good weather.

The Romantic park of 18 hectares runs down to the Bilancino Lake, and contains many rare and notable trees and plants including Cedars of Lebanon and Sequoias dating back to the nineteenth century, Mulberry and Linden, and a small pinewood.
