  • About this holiday

    With the air of a private Tuscan residence, the Villa le Barone treats its guests to a true sense of exclusivity and luxury, but with the comfort and character intrinsic to the properties of the region. Immersed in the culture of the Chianti wine region, this hotel is well-suited to wine connoisseurs, as well as providing the best introduction for wine-tasting novices, and is an exceptionally comfortable four star base for any tour of the Tuscan countryside, or the treasures of Italy on a larger scale. We would highly recommend this unique hotel to all clients looking for a peaceful holiday in Italy.

    Our opinion

    Hotel Villa le Barone is an enchanting hotel in a lovely location offering top quality service and comfort with the atmosphere of a private house. Charmingly unique.

    Hotel description

    The Hotel Villa le Barone is a charming hotel just outside the picturesque village of Panzano in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine producing region, with outstanding views over the vineyards which start right at the hotel and stretch into the distance. It was once the home of the famous Della Robbia family and today is owned by their descendants Count and Countess Aloisi de Larderel. In its transformation from private house to hotel it has retained all its charm and character. The Villa le Barone today consists of four separate houses, in which the bedrooms are located, surrounded by a shady garden with reclining seats and hammocks, terrace, and swimming pool. A new addition at the beginning of 2017 is the infinity heated swimming pool, which is lined with Travertine marble. The main villa is built in the style of the region with creamy white walls, terracotta tiles and stone roof, brown wooden shutters and thick stone walls. The ceilings are vaulted inside and in the charming lounge there is an open fire-place (where a log fire burns in cool weather), wooden panelled doors, comfortable chairs and original library of antique books. Flowers or fresh fruit and bottled water are supplied regularly. Some of the rooms enjoy wonderful views of the vineyards and the village of Panzano. The Villa le Barone is a charming and relaxed hotel full of regional flavour.
