A wonderful, breath-taking, delectable, relaxing, romantic villa in beautiful Tuscany!
My wife and I just spent a week at Villa Le Barone to celebrate our 10th - and as a retreat after enduring Hurricane Harvey. Our entire experience was absolutely wonderful. We just loved loved loved the cuisine, rooms, pool, surrounding towns, staff, and owners. We loved it so much that we felt compelled to write about it so bear with as this might be one of the longer reviews...
We experienced Tuscan cooking first-hand with Chef Alessio during our two hour cooking class. This class gave us an even greater appreciation for all the breakfast delectables, exquisite poolside lunches, and romantic dinners. Our only regret is that we wished we dined more often at Villa Le Barone. We recommend that you make your reservations before your trip to get the 50% discount - yes 50%!
Our room was extremely comfortable because the bed was large, bedding was comfortable, ceiling-fixed shower had great water-pressure (and hot was HOT not just luke-warm), windows opened to romantic views, and there was plenty of storage for luggage.
The pool experience could not have been any more perfect. The water was heated just enough, the infinity views were breath-taking, and the pool-side experience was relaxing and romantic.
We walked from Villa Le Barone to Panzano for sight-seeing, lunches, and their wine festival. It takes about 15 minutes each way. We also drove to nearby Greve for a dinner and their wine festival. If you stay more than a few nights, we recommend a visit to the Crazy Butcher, a unique dining experience for meat aficionados.
The staff was all-around very professional and helpful. The front desk staff made our reservations for on-prem and off-prem dinning, taxis, auto rental, transfers, and a bike excursion. The cleaning staff work really hard to keep the rooms and facilities spic and span. And the personable wait staff made our dining experience very memorable.
The owners sincerely want to provide a great Tuscan villa experience. Keep this in mind when you first meet and talk with the Count and Countess :)
