Villa Le Barone
(4 Star Hotels) Panzano in Chianti
Villa Le Barone has played an important role in the history of Panzano in Chianti since the Middle Ages Over the centuries, before its transformation into a luxurious 4 star hotel, the edifice served as the seat of a medieval barony, the summer residence of the famous Della Robbia sculptors, and the wine and olive estate of the Marchesa Maria Bianca Viviani.
The subject of a meticulous restoration project, today's Hotel Villa Le Barone combines authentic old world charm and contemporary technology to perfection, providing accommodation in 30 individually furnished bedrooms in which guests can expect to find both rare antiques and high speed internet connectivity. Offering the kind of stuff dream honeymoons are made of, the entrancing bedroom in Villa Le Barone's ''tower features a precious 16th century tapestry and magnificent views over Chianti's famous vineyards'''.
The hotel's restaurant serves traditional Tuscan dishes, prepared using the finest of locally sourced ingredients. The connoisseur selection of cheeses and cold meats and the homemade desserts are particularly worthy of mention. The wine list is suitably impressive, and features all of Chianti's finest bottles.
At Villa le Barone each and every holiday is an unforgettable one, in part thanks to the hotel's strategic location, within minutes of all the principal towns in Chianti and less than an hour away from the great Tuscan art cities of Florence and Siena. Those unable to drag themselves away from the hotel's beautiful rooms and peaceful grounds, will no doubt spend much of their vacation basking in the sun by the panoramic swimming pool or relaxing in the villa's elegant drawing room, good book and a glass of Chianti in hand.
