The gardens of Villa le Barone in Chianti Tuscany, are full of perfumes that will enchant your nose, whatever the season. The other senses are also solicited: the sight with the views on the wonderful landscapes of the Chianti hills, the hearing with the bird’s songs and the bells of the nearby church (but they stop during the night!), the taste with all the flavors of the Tuscan cuisine.
There are of course the roses, blooming in all seasons, the honeysuckles, which climb here and there and exhale their delicate perfume, the different odorous jasmine, and you will certainly particularly enjoy the large, deep green foliage and profuse white and very fragrant flowers of the poet jasmine. You will love the scent of verbena leaves by crumpling them between your fingers! At the end of June the lilies are in full bloom, and their fragrance make the garden a delight!
And of course there are all the scents of aromatic plants that perfume the Tuscan cuisine and that you can enjoy in our restaurant! Rosemary, basil, tarragon, different species of thyme, sage (do you know there are more than 100 different species of sage?) are widely used by our Tuscan cooks. We have also created in one of the gardens an angle where you can discover about a hundred aromatic herbs. Near the “Fattoria”, there is a massive lavender, where butterflies come to flit.
And what views, whether of the pool, tennis or gardens! Your eyes will be captivated by the enchanting vistas on the Chianti hills, with their vineyards and olive groves. What’s better than to be soothed by the sound of water, to hear the birds and the sound of the bells of the neighboring church San Leolino while having a light lunch on the terrace under the centennials chestnuts?
Come and experience the scents of Villa le Barone’s gardens, come and admire its unique views, come and taste the wines of Chianti and Tuscan cuisine, come and listen to the song of birds! Come and relax in this privileged environment!
