Sunset at Villa le Barone from the heart terrace

There are many occasions for romantic moments with your loved one in Chianti, Tuscany, when you book a room in a hotel with magnificent views and wonderful hideaways: enjoy the sunsets, savor a candlelight dinner on the terrace in the greenery, and soak in the beauty of the Chianti’s landscapes…

Can you imagine hiding with your loved one in a romantic wonderful hotel nestled on the top of a hill in Chianti, very quiet, far from the main roads?  You arrive through a short alley of holm oaks and discover the Villa, half covered with vine taking on changing colors with the seasons.  Staying at the Villa is very much like being the guest in a private, elegant home set in the gorgeous Tuscan hills. Beautiful fresh flowers will be   waiting for you in your room, furnished with authentic antique furniture and luxury fabrics.  You both pick up a drink in the honesty bar, stay there or go in one of the inviting lounges, close to the  fire place. The owners, Jacqueline and Corso, are often around, you may meet them and they will be pleased to tell you about the history of the Villa, since the times when it was a watch tower during the endless wars between Florence and Siena!
Do you both play tennis?  The tennis court has a breathtaking view over the Chianti hills. Do you wish to sunbathe and relax?  There is a lovely swimming pool, romantically set on a terrace looking over the vineyards and rose garden in front of the old San Leolino abbey…

Romantic dinner on the terrace in the greenery at Villa le Barone

The heart terrace is a perfect location to watch the sunsets in a romantic “tête à tête”and to have a glass of Prosecco, the Italian Champagne ….  What about a wonderful candlelight dinner on another terrace in the greenery or in the restaurant, set in the former cellar of the Villa?
And tomorrow morning? Well …  a beautiful lie-in, with sun and birds playing outside of the window, before a latehearty breakfast…
The gardens will be welcoming you, with marvelous views on the Chianti hills and their vineyards! The loungers are expecting you… as well as a strange pergola seat partly covered with jasmine, where lovers have exchanged vows!
Of course, from Villa le Barone, you can also visit the main famous Tuscan art cities, Florence, Sienna, San Gimignano… but you can also go along the small  roads “off the beaten tracks” to discover the charm of  medieval hamlets. Do you prefer going hiking? The Villa can give you itineraries and also prepare a picnic for you.
There is no better place than the Villa to spend romantic moments with your loved one.
