San Gimignano

Hills dotted with villages that have over three thousand years of history…

No matter which way you arrive to San Gimignano, this town stands on top of a hill at over 300 metres above sea level, with all its towers. Today there are 13 of them, but it is said that in the 14th century there were more than seventy, one for every wealthy family, who displayed their economic power in this way.
Not too far away you find Volterra, the ancient city of Etruscan origin which has been conquered by the Romans, Barbarians and Florentine legions more than once over the centuries. Its picturesque old town centre is dotted with churches and museums and has been the film set for Italian and international products many times.
Another undoubtedly charming village is Monteriggioni, famous for its walls that have completely surrounded it since the early thirteenth century, spanning 570 metres, interspersed with 14 towers and two gates, which are still intact today. A section of the walkway on the walls has recently been opened to the public for visits: from here you can take in the Chianti and Val d’Elsa countryside for as far as the eye can see.
These are picturesque itineraries that are convenient for people staying at Villa I Barronci Resort & Spa and are the perfect way to enhance your Tuscan holiday in the Chianti region even further.
"Accomplished Tuscany without Compromise "
When indulging in a Tuscan holiday at a given price point one has certain expectations regarding service and amenities and this hotel delivers in bundles. We had an excellent stay in pristine surroundings with lovely views and the hotel staff were fantastic without exception. The amenities and service would rival any 5 star hotel worldwide. We enjoyed dinner in the restaurant on two occasions and were not disappointed. Breakfasts were to an excellent standard and pool service staff were excellent. An excellent feature was the intercom link ordering system by the pool where bar snacks and drinks could be ordered all day. Reception staff were very helpful with local area knowledge and organising wine tasting, restaurants, and trips. Bike and scooter rental are available. On the negative front we could not receive English speaking news channels on TV and the secluded location means that you would definitely need a car/transportation when staying there. These are very minor whinges and I would gladly offer my highest recommendation to this very classy Country House Hotel.  "
