Villa Barberino, perched on the edge of medieval Barberino Val D’Elsa village, is nestled somewhere in heaven between Florence and Siena. From jousting knights to car racing, regional festivals abound and no day is complete without a loaf from the village baker and freshly picked fruit from the villa orchard.
This is quintessential Tuscany, where lazy hot days by the pool are alternated with days touring the undulating countryside soaking up the sweet life, la dolce vita, and sampling sumptuous Tuscan food. Days that begin with processions of colourful hot-air balloons floating throughout the valley. And nights that end with magical sunsets, Chianti and fireflies.
