What should a luxury hotel be nowadays? Probably, a place giving one the feeling of living a rare and unique moment. And what should this feeling be made of?

Firstly the quality of the location: Villa le Barone, in the Chianti countryside, on the top of a hill, offers large beautiful gardens planted with Mediterranean trees, with plenty of nooks to hide in. This charm hotel also offers the opportunity to relax in one of the many lounges furnished with antiques, paintings and works of art and rest in one of the tastefully decorated bed rooms, quiet and comfortable, all different. Fabrics are coming from famous editors, furniture and decorative items are part of the Della Robbia family’s past. Guests are welcomed with a bouquet of fresh flowers picked in the Villa’s garden.

Then the quality of service: not a high desk at the reception office but a welcoming and attentive staff to greet guests and help them plan their discovery of Chianti, book for wine tastings in one of the many wineries around us or get tickets for museums visits …

Quality of food is not the last item of what a luxury hotel should have: all products proposed in our restaurant are of the best quality: vegetables and fruits are local, fresh and tasty, extra virgin olive oil and beef (fee range cattle ) come from our property in Maremma, 60 miles away from Villa le Barone. Chianti Classico’s on the wine list have obtained several awards and come from the best winemakers in the vicinity of the Villa.

Swimming pool and tennis have awesome views, fitness room is not in a basement but in the garden, fitness trail makes you exercise while discovering the property.

No fireworks, no glitz, no ceremonial at Villa le Barone, but a great care for details; a refined atmosphere that surrounds guests in beauty and elegance and offers them an emotion that many existing luxury rated but standardized hotels often cannot provide.
