Reviewed August 7, 2006

We spent six night s in this old and beautifully kept residence. The grounds are immaculate and the staff accomodating and kind.
Our room (5 in the main house) was nicely appointed but had a small bathroom (shower only). We experienced problems with the air conditioner for four nights (It was around 100 degrees during the day and 80 at night ! - my advice - go to Italy in September !). Although several staff members came and looked at it, noone seemed able to solve the problem. Finally they offered us another room - which we accepted - for our last two nights. The room (17?) was larger and had a perfectly working air conditioner. We were much happier there. A very pretty pool and deck area although access to the pool is by a somewhat shaky metal ladder only. Still we enjoyed it. Breakfast was wonderful with homemade pastries and breads and all manner of other breakfast foods - lovely ! The promised wireless internet never worked while we were there but there is a very nice hot spot and interent cafe in Panzano at the Pizza place (on SR222). Overall, a bit pricey but a really nice, civilized place to relax after a day of broiling, sweaty touristing.
PS... Great food and views at the little Oltre il Giardino in Panzano.

My wife and I had a fabulous stay in may in la Villa Baronne in Panzano in the middle of the Chianti.
Tle location is gorgeous, the views from the room (we had the room 17)and the swimming pools are very nice.
the countryside is peaceful,.perfect place for walking and visiting the wineyards and to be reenergized.
the food is excellent- every evening the diner menu is different- tuscany traditionnal -
the meat comes from the family owned farm ;
Service and housekeeping were perfect.
You feel at home.
This is definitively a recommendated place to stay for discovering Toscana and chianti.

In addition Panzano is a small town at walking distance from the hotel between Sienna and Firenze.. and there is something that we enjoyed..After one day visiting the beautul toscana cities.. It was so nice and relaxing to be back Home at la Villla le barone;

My husband and I stayed at Villa Le Barone for three nights at the end of April. We had an incredible stay and truly enjoyed soaking up the Tuscan life. Everyone at the Villa was extremely helpful and friendly and the food was delicious. We loved the breakfasts with the homemade breads, jams, and yogurt and the light lunch and dinner were superb as well. We did not do half board in order to be able to explore local restaurants on our own, but we enjoyed the one dinner we did have in the restaurant. The antipasto buffet was to-die-for.

We stayed in one of the smaller rooms in the main villa and we loved it. It was clean and comfortable and had a nice view of Panzano from the windows. The grounds of the hotel are immaculately kept and we enjoyed taking walks and hikes around the area. A few other things we enjoyed were the winery tour at Castellina de Veranzanno that the hotel set up for us, going to the market in Greve on Sunday, taking a hike to the Cennatoio vineyard, and taking long drives through the country. Our favorite town was Castellina.

The hotel is a bit pricey, but it is definitely worth it if you want to relax in a gorgeous part of Chianti.

We spent three nights here in May and were impressed with the setting and service. Arriving early around midday, our rooms were not quite ready, but we were made to feel welcome and offered a light lunch on the terrace while we waited. The food was soon served, together with a glass or two of Chianti Classico and we settled into the quiet, laid back atmosphere of the Villa.

Our room was not in the main villa, but in one of the many small adjoining rustic buildings. The room and bathroom were clean and spacious, (though some rooms were somewhat smaller) We had a small patio in front of the room surrounded by beautiful roses and colourful flowers.

Breakfast was served on the terrace, though there was a small breakfast room in the villa if required. Dinner was excellent and good value as part of the half board package. Excellent wine list with many local vineyards included. Nice pool area and good tennis court.

The Villa is not a budget destination, but the setting, service, food and staff make it good value for the money. Our only criticism is that it may be a little too quiet for some.

Our stay at the Villa Le Barone was a wonderful experience. From the fantastic food, to the quaint gardens, walking trails, history, service, and accessibility to Florence and Sienna, this place is just magnificient. I cannot say enough about the beauty and peacefulness of this Villa and surrounding area. There was a nice balance of tradition and modern convenience. They offer their services and provide detailed information about how to plan your stay and/or time in Italy in an unobtrusive way. We felt we had all the privacy and also all of the resources we needed to feel comfortable. We will always remember our time here!

When we arrived at Le Barone a violent thunder storm was raging, it was dark and the electricity had been off all day! Sounds horendous but infact all the staff were coping wonderfully. We were made to feel welcome in the candle light. The chef provided an excellent dinner even under these difficult circumstances. This villa really is elegant luxury but the price reflect this. We felt that the rather less ornate Villa Il Poggiale just a few miles away offers better value but if you want to be pampered and money is not a problem then we would recommend Le Barone unreservadly.

Last week I stayed at the le barone the third time. It´s really wonderful to be there. It´s elegant, beautifully furbished, nothing is complicated. The staff is wonderful – it´s very clean with a wonderful garden and pool looking down to the tuscany hills. Prices are reasonable and meals are gorgeous! I really recommend it for people who search for a small noble and quite place.
