I had never been to either Tuscany or Villa Le Barone before and we were so delighted with our stay there. The Villa is a truly magical place. It is set in an incredibly beautiful location on top if a hillside overlooking Panzano. There are magical quintessential Tuscan views from every angle. The rooms are beautiful and ultra comfortable. The team who works there are incredible!! They worked with us from months before coming to the entire time we were there. And it wasn't just the front desk team ... everyone was so gracious and friendly from the front desk staff, the housekeepers, the servicing team in the restaurant and the owners ... no request was an inconvenience. Everyone was focused on making our trip the most memorable possible. They all made you feel like family. The food is spectacular. Truly traditional Tuscan menu's ... all perfectly and deliciously executed by Fernanda and her team. We even had the pleasure of a cooking class with Fernanda on the last morning of our stay and we had the best time cooking with her. My husbands limited Italian and Fernanda's infinite patience and our mutual love for good food make it an incredible memorable and delicious experience. We would recommend Villa Le Barone to everyone and without a doubt this visit may have been our first but not out last ... we WILL BE BACK!!!
