We stayed here for four days and nights in October, 2014. Not hard to find, but a little hard to navigate the narrow roads. Worth the effort. Our room was outstanding and we had a sitting area right outside our door. We had breakfast every day and no problems. We had dinner there two nights and one night we got... More

Dear drdiverme, Jacqueline and I were very happy to meet you and are very happy you enjoyed Tuscany and Villa le Barone. Yes! our roads in Tuscany are quite narrow and windy, charming, but somewhat difficult to drive on at night ... not even taking into consideration wild boars and deers crossing sometimes unexpectedly ... This gives me the opportunity... More

We spent a delightful week in this gem of a hotel tucked away in a village in Chianti. The hotel certainly lived up to all the great reviews we read on trip advisor. We used it as a base to travel around Tuscany starting with a great day at the wine festival at Panzano. Sienna, San Gimignano and Volterra are... More

Our stay at the Villa Le Barone near Panzano was the highlight of our tour through Italy. Our room was beautiful, the view was lovely and serene, and the dining was simply outstanding. We enjoyed the perfect fall weather, rarely needing even a jacket on our walks through the countryside. The grounds are immaculately kept with any number of cozy... More

Dear Patricia, I an glad you took the time to walk in the countryside around Villa le Barone; it is beautiful, specially in autumn and it's an efficient and pleasant way to discover a new region. Our region is still fairly clean from pollution and the best proof is that there are many different species of animals. No later than... More

Villa Le Barone is the place to stay in Panzano, a relatively unheralded town in the center of the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany. The Villa was originally the site of a watch tower constructed in the middle ages surrounded by the agricultural estate of a Tuscan baron. The property became the possession of a French Industrialist during the Napoleonic... More

On a recent trek through Chianti, my 2 girlfriends and I stumbled upon this hilltop villa. From the moment we arrived the staff treated us as though we were queens. We were upgraded with the most amazing rooms, with breathtaking vistas. I thought this is what it must have been like hundreds of years earlier, complete with the sights and... More

The only negative here is that we didn't stay longer! This is a fantastic hotel, great venue with amazing views from the garden and tennis court areas. We had a lovely 3 course meal at the hotel one evening, where the owners took time to speak with guests. The hotel also offers information on what to do in the area,... More

Dear JLC1977, I am afraid the weather was not much during your stay and your comments about the views and surroundings would have even more justified if the sun had shown its face more often! But even then, Chianti is beautiful, the food at our restaurant is simple, but tasty and authentic and the wine, well the wine is glorious!... More
