Hiking and walking in Tuscany in the surroundings of Hotel Villa le Barone in Chianti

August 18, 2011  |  Activities, Hotel

At Hotel Villa le Barone, located in the heart of Chianti, you will find many hiking, walking as well as cycling opportunities. The hiking tours that you will find at the authentic manor hotel Villa le Barone will allow you to discover the wide diversity of the Tuscan landscape: you will admire the breathtaking views of the Tuscan hills; you will contemplate the typical Chianti scenery of vineyards, olive groves, cypresses, chestnuts and oaks forests. The easy self guided tours that Villa le Barone has prepared for you will also bring you in small medieval villages near Greve in Chianti, Radda in Chianti or Castellina in Chianti, such as Volpaia, Lamole or Montefioralle. They will allow you to enter in the Tuscan culture and to uncover little known treasuries: small churches or abbeys, Renaissance paintings, and simple but good food in the “trattorias” you encounter. And if you prefer to have the help of a guide, Villa le Barone will find one for you!

Villa le Barone, a charming 4 star country Chianti hotel with pool and tennis court

If you also wish to practice other sports during your vacations in our small country hotel Villa le Barone, you can play tennis on our private tennis court, follow the outdoor fitness trail inside Villa le Barone’s property, or swim in beautiful Villa le Barone’s pool, in the middle of a large garden.  As does the tennis court, Villa le Barone’s pool has splendid views on the countryside, and you can relax on one of the many sun deck chairs around the pool itself or in the middle of the rose garden.

If you want to mix hiking and walking while discovering secret corners of Tuscany by car, Hotel Villa le Barone will also provide you with “out of the beaten tracks” car itineraries where very  few travellers venture,  around Florence, San Gimignano and Siena.

Hiking and walking in autumn around the romantic country hotel Villa le Barone

September and October are especially pleasant months for hiking and walking: the countryside becomes a patchwork of autumn colors, with a wide range of yellows, of reds, of greens. Villa le Barone’s front also takes its autumn colors! You will also be able to exercise your sense of smell, as you will find a lot of different aromas and fragrances: aromatic Mediterranean plants, wineries… If the weather is beautiful and still warm, you can refresh yourself in Villa le Barone‘s pool… and sip a glass of Chianti wine while watching the sunset by the pool. If the weather is not that good, you can also enjoy the many fireplaces in charming hotel Villa le Barone’ lounges or honesty bar. And remember, the Tuscan cooks are preparing good dinners that you will enjoy after a wonderful hike!
