Rich in history, art, culture and traditions, Tuscany also offers fabulous landscapes, flavors of authentic cuisine and exquisite wines: all the ingredients for a perfect holiday or week end destination. But Tuscany also enjoys great golf courses. Villa le Barone, in the heart of Chianti and close to the main Renaissance art cities such as Florence and Sienna, also  has the privilege of being only 20 minutes away  from the Ugolino Golf course. This golf opened in 1933 and is the birthplace of Italian golf.  Its architects, an Englishman Cecil Blandford and an Irishman Peter Gannon, used the natural contours of the Tuscan hills to realize an exceptional course, through a landscape of great beauty among vineyards, olive trees, pines and other Mediterranean plants.
