Be it from its tennis, its infinity swimming pool, its gardens, its heart terrace, and most of its rooms, hotel Villa le Barone, set on a Chianti hilltop, offers stupendous views on the incredible Tuscan landscape and the Chianti hills, the vineyards, the medieval hamlets, the churches! Chianti has the colors of a fresco, someone said, you will never forget it!
From Villa le Barone’s tennis, you will have a magnificent view on the tall green cypresses, on the silver of the olive groves, on the vineyards, on a few typical farm houses doting the countryside. From the infinity pool, you will admire the unique beauty of the Romanesque small San Leolino church and hamlet. From the heart terrace, you will be able to enjoy spectacular sunsets! Sitting in the large gardens of the Villa, you are in the heart of the “greatest garden in Europe, part naturally made and part of the work of human beings” as John J Navone wrote in his book “Toward a theology of beauty”.
From most of the rooms, you can soak up the beauty of the panoramas. The “tower room” in particular, on the top of the Villa, in the part of what was a watch tower in the medieval times during the wars between Florence and Siena, offers a breathtaking view!
Marchioness Maria Bianca Viviani Della Robbia, of whom the current Villa le Barone’s owners are heirs, wrote in her book “A farm in Chianti”:” When we fix our gaze on the distant horizon, so contained and tranquil, the vexations and the discord of the present are forgotten, and when the sweetness of the reawakening earth takes us by surprise each year, all discouragement melts away and we are inundated by the love which binds us to the land”.
A charm hotel with tennis, infinity pool, gardens and rooms with amazing views on the Chianti hills: difficult to find a better place!
