We stayed at this amazing villa in July and absolutely loved it. The staff were absolutely wonderful and so helpful. Not to mention the kitchen staff who were so delightful. There was nothing they couldn't do. They even cooked for our little bubs without any hesitation. I would highly recommend this villa, it's absolutely gorgeous. We hope to be back...

Dear SabrinaG2035, thank you for your so kind comments and high marks on Villa le Barone. You are right: We are blessed, at Villa le Barone, with a very special staff focused on Guest satisfaction.

We only stayed two nights and would love to go back. the place has been furnished as if it was lived in by a family - with antiques everywhere, and every nook and cranny providing further pleasurable discoveries. Our room was lovely - looking out over the gardens on one side, and towards panzano the other. Small bathroom in the...

Dear NZ54, a couple of nights at Villa le Barone is often not sufficient to soak in the atmosphere of our house and we look forward to hosting you again soon.

Villa La Barone is an amazing place. The rooms are lovely, the grounds are breathtaking, the staff is attentive and always ready to help, the food is out of this world, the tennis court and pool and fitness trails are a great way to unwind.

We stayed at Villa La Barone for 3 nights. There were 12 of us. Barbara and Stefania made sure our rooms were wonderful and they were. This Villa is everything one dreams about when going to Tuscany. It's in the middle of wine country. Vineyards everywhere. The pool and gardens are beautiful. Rooms are decorated beautifully. It's close to Florence...

Stayed 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed starting and ending each day here. Friendly, unobtrusive staff, spacious room, beautiful grounds and ample common areas for reading or greeting friends. Well situated for touring Chianti with at least two great restaurants nearby. Wish I could have spent more time here.

My feeling is than when I decide to spend the money to stay in an upscale hotel, I should be treated in a like manner, with class. The attitude of the establishment should be, "What can we do to make this guest's stay more enjoyable"; not, "How can we extract more cash from this traveller". On my first morning there...

Idyllic setting in the heart of Tuscany. We stayed as part of Backroads trip and hiked the area with villa barone as wonderful base. 28 rooms, we enjoyed cozy room number one in the main tower. Grounds were perfectly groomed and high quality meals at the restaurant, including wide selection of yummy antipasto. Staff gets high marks for overall experience.
