Villa I Barronci
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 17, 2006

We found i Barronci on the internet and decided to escape there after our wedding in May.

From the initial contact Piero was terribly helpful. On arrival we were shown to our room which had been upgraded in light of the fact that we were newlyweds. The views were amazing.

The villa itself is impeccibly clean and presented in an understated personl style. The bedroom was clean and functional -the one thing that we would have liked would have been a bath but we could not complain as all our other needs were met. The in-house restaurant provided some of the most amazing food that we had every eaten and the house red was enjoyed perhaps a leeeetle too much by us!

The restaurants in the local town were reasonable as well. Our favorite was a pizza parlour on the outskirts of the town that was frequented by the locals and did excellent pizzas.

We drove to Sienna for the day which is a gem not to be missed. We initially were not going to hire a car but were pleased that we took Piero's advice to organise one otherwise we would have been stuck. We drove (without seeking advice from our host) into Florence one day and got very very very lost... having survived the experience we were given precise instructions and a map complete with pen marks showing the best places to eat by Piero -it was perfect.

Sadly we did not organise any of the treatments that are available but we vowed that we would return as soon as we could and would recommend the villa to anyone who wants a slice of Tuscany with a large heaping of style and grace.

Thanks to Piero and is family for making our holiday so wonderful.

Piero and his family were simply wonderful. The room was excellent as was the bathroom. Do yourself a favor and eat a meal here and enjoy the grappa after dinner..ouch. The breakfast was wonderful. It was too cold for the pool but we did enjoy the scooters (in our party of 4 we wrecked 2..everyone was ok thanks to the gravel). My wife enjoyed a massage that was arrainged last minute. This was an experience I will remember for a life time thanks to the wonderful family that runs this wonderful b&b.

I found I Barronci on the internet (----), and thanks to this website felt confident it would deliver the perfect Tuscan holiday. Our apartment, enclosed in the Villa had plenty of room, both bedrooms had their own bathrooms with shower and there was a reasonably adequate kitchen. My only complaint - no wine glasses. The landscaped gardens are delightful, and well kept, while the pool was a delight and where we perched ourselves each night to watch the magical sunset over the Tuscan-postcard view. We rose early one Sunday morning to be greeted with the ring of church bells, crowing of roosters and responding barking of dogs ringing through the valley - a wonderful musical cacophony. Owner Piero, his wife and son Phillippo are extremely welcoming and helpful with maps, restaurants etc - we were trapped in a traffic jam on the Autostrada from Rome, and after a phone call, Phillippo drove to the San Casciano bus stop to pick up our daughter who was stranded there. The local village is a delight - don't miss the weekly market or the old men congregating in the town centre at the end of each day for a chat of game of chess. Explore each street early - we found treasures on the last day!! It is well positioned for day trips to Florence, San Gimignano, Monteriggiano and Siena, and if I ever return to Tuscany I would definitely return to I Barronci.

In November 2004 we had the pleasure of staying at a beautiful agriturismo - I Barronci located just 12 K from the centre of Florence in the small town of San Casciano val di pesa. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with spectacular views and pool. The apartments are beautiful and fully equiped. They have beeen professionally decorated and yet the owners chose the furnishings as if for their own home. The informative web site ---- contains an accurate depiction of the rooms and beautiful grounds. In fact the apartment we stayed in is exaclty the one in the photos. Not only is this a wonderful place to stay it's location is perfect in that day trips to Florence, Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano, Luca and all of Chianti are possible. Driving to the centre of Florence takes only 30 minutes maximum. The owners, Piero and his son Philipe, live on the property and are most helpful in providing accurate maps, advice on places to visit and dine. We highly recomend I Barronci and look forward to returning in the future.

Our 5 day stay at the I Barronci B&B in San Casciano, Italy was a wonderful experience. I found this family owned and operated B&B at the last minute the day before I left for Italy by clicking on to a web site provided on the Florence weather page. The I Barronci is situated in the lush rolling hills of Tuscany amidst vineyards and olive trees. The grounds are large and immaculately kept, making for a lovely view no matter what the location. The apartments are large with plenty of storage space. The buffet breakfast is more than ample and held at a more leisurely time of morning. There is a small, Italian resuarant within walking distance that serves incredible homemade meals in wonderful atmosphere. The owner of I Barronci, Pierro, and his son, Philipe, go out of their way to make your stay hassle free. The B&B is accessible by bus from Florence through the small town of San Casciano, which is a delight in itself to browse and shop in! This is a B&B that I would definitely recommend and return to year after year!!
