If you are hesitating on where to spend your Easter Holidays, then Tuscany is the right place to visit for many good reasons:
the beauty of the landscapes, the historical cities, the world famous art masterpieces and, last but not least, the mildness of the spring.
And if you really want to experience the traditions of Tuscany then come to Villa le Barone, an authentic historic Hotel, former property of the famous Renaissance ceramists the Della Robbia’s, still owned by their heirs. Spending Easter holidays in Tuscany at Hotel Villa le Barone will allow you to attend, either in Greve in Chianti or in Panzano, the “Volo della Colombina” (Flight of the Dove), a traditional ritual.
You may also discover a hidden treasure at the annual antiquities fair, the “Mercatino delle cose del passato”, held in the main square in Greve in Chianti on Easter Monday … And the Tuscan cooks at Villa le Barone will prepare for you the typical Tuscan Easter recipes, such as roasted lamb and “la Colomba”cake, symbol of peace and joy.
Easter is synonym of spring: at the small luxury country hotel Villa le Barone, in a protected environment, you will see cherry and apricot trees in bloom, daffodils and tulips as well as many other flowers in the gardens. Of course a bouquet of fresh flowers of Villa le Barone’s garden will wait for you in your room!
