Florence

And as the moon doth, by the rolling of her heavenly sphere, hide and reveal the strand unceasingly, so fortune deals with Florence...

If you are planning a visit to Florence, staying at Villa I Barronci will add a touch of class to your itinerary, making it undoubtedly unique and special. Our ancient property is actually only 15 km away from Florence, meaning it can be easily reached via the Florence-Siena freeway.
It is certainly difficult - if not impossible - to make a definitive list of all the wonderful things that are studded around this city, but we will try to give you a few ideas.

Uffizi Gallery

Famous all over the world, this museum can boast of an exceptional collection of paintings and ancient statues by artists such as Giotto, Piero della Francesca, Fra Angelico, Botticelli, Mantegna, Leonardo, Raphael, Caravaggio and Michelangelo. It also features smaller collections from important German and Flemish artists. The Uffizi Gallery is located inside the building designed by Giorgio Vasari to house the administrative offices of the ancient Tuscan state.

Accademia Gallery

This gallery is renowned for its many sculptures by Michelangelo, including his famous David, yet you will also find religious themed paintings here. Its collection of panels painted over a gold background stand out in particular, being the only collection of its kind in the world. The gallery was recently expanded and today is also home to the Musical Instrument Department, with important, antique instruments from the Cherubini Conservatory of Florence.

Palazzo Pitti

Created to be the residence of the grand dukes of Tuscany, and subsequently the kings of Italy, today this is also home to various kinds of different collections, including paintings, sculptures, porcelain pieces and the costume gallery. The stunning Boboli Gardens is found next to it, one of the most beautiful gardens in Italy.

A city for children too

Florence is a city that is perfect for children too, with its many parks, gardens and museums featuring fun-creative activities that will make their visit a lovely and engaging experience. Take the Galileo Museum for example, home to Galileo Galilei’s scientific instruments, or the Geology and Palaeontology Museum where your kids can enjoy over 40 full-scale dinosaur replicas, with interactive educational panels and a 3D paleo-aquarium.

Perfect and charming
My husband and I stayed at villa l barronci for 4 nights and the only regret is not having stayed one more night to join the staff for the sunset run the following evening. How awesome is that.. From the time of booking, check-in (we were very early but they were more than accommodating), to the eventual check-out, everything went without a glitch. Unlike most other hotels' service staff who are professional, albeit cold, the service here is turned up one notch by the genuinely warm and helpful staff, from the front desk, waiters, to the gardener and chambermaids. Of particular mention is Gemma, who made us feel so welcome and comfortable throughout the stay with her recommendations and nuggets of advice and we absolutely enjoyed our conversations with her. The waitress, Bruneila, is just as lovely and rendered excellent service. I cannot remember the names of the other waiters/waitresses but all in all, they have contributed to making our experience in Tuscany a special one. Such a beautiful place with even more beautiful souls. We will be back! "
