I almost feel wrong giving Villa Le Barone an excellent rating for two reasons: 1) Excellent is a poor choice for the outstanding beauty and service of the hotel. There ought to be a rating 2 to 3 levels higher which would match how honored we felt to be guests of this wonderful hotel. 2) I'd almost rather the hotel would remain unnoticed, unspoiled, by too much traffic. Ahhh, but it is not to be. [smile]
Villa Le Barone is an escape from everything. The rooms are wonderfully appointed, the staff is terrific, and the food is spectacular. But what really gets you going are the views. Standing out on a side road to the hotel or standing out by the pool and looking over the beautiful valleys coated with vineyards, one simply lets all the world's troubles melt away. This is where you go to relax. Because the hotel is small, you feel everyone there is a friend.
We really did not want to leave. Thank you so much for a wonderful week.
