About The Experience
Immerse yourself in the Victorian-era atmosphere of this Tuscany villa rental, an excellent choice for a family holiday, full of period furniture and elegant decor. Surrounded by olive trees, rolling hills, and the vineyards of Tuscany, you will be at your leisure to cool off in the private pool, enjoy a five-course dinner prepared by a chef, chat with your companions over a game of billiards, or organize a day outing to Florence or Siena. Whether you spend a week or a month at this Tuscany villa rental, you will have no shortage of things to do, places to see, or ways to relax.
Location Description

The closest village to this villa is Bagnano, which has a small food market. Just under six kilometers is the town of Sciano, with a food shop and pizzeria. Barberino Val d'Elsa offers additional grocery markets, bank, post office, restaurants, and cafes. Make sure to visit Certaldo, which has all the necessities combined with small-town charm. Explore Certaldo Alta, the old medieval village, and if you find yourself traveling in July, enjoy the Renaissance festival, complete with street artists, actors, musicians, and more. There are train connections from Certaldo to Siena and Florence, but there is no bus service from the villa to Certaldo.

Nearby Attractions: The medieval hamlets of Sant’Appiano and Linari, just a few kilometers from Barberino Val d’Elsa, are worth a visit. The parish Church of Sant’Appiano is referred to by many as the oldest church in the Chianti region. The small and charming village of Petrognano, with ruins of the town of Semifonte destroyed in 1202 by the Florentine, is a short distance away as well.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
We (all 11 of us) absolutely enjoyed our stay at Villa Barberino! We would definitely consider going back (and yes the ant problem has been taken care of)!
Enjoyed Most:
The view was incredible! The rooms were spacious and all bedrooms had their own bath. The pool was fantastic (great after a morning run). The location is convenient to many sites in Tuscany. The nearby town of Certaldo has a train station with trains running frequently to just about anywhere you would like to take a day trip. Certaldo also has a great selection of restaurants and the old town is worth exploring. There is also a great local restaurant just 14 mile away from the villa called Wilma's.
Enjoyed Least:
It was a little hard to find. Three of us followed the directions and managed. One couple was lost for 3 hours with spotty text and phone service.
Surrounding Area:
The surrounding area is rolling hills and vineyards and just beautiful. The villa's location is so convenient for exploring Tuscany!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Sciano and Certaldo are nearby - but not walking distance. There is a restaurant called Wilma that is about 14 mile and walkable, but it is only open for dinner.
Tips or Restaurants:
The Villa is a short drive from the nearest towns and food stores. I would stop on the way there and stock up on basics such as breakfast foods. We had cars and were able to make runs to stock up.
Directions:
Putting Bagnano as the city worked the best with GPS.
Check In Out:
We were very pleased with the check in out process. Beatrice was delightful!

Overall:
Pleasant.
Enjoyed Most:
It was a historic building and fun to explore.
Enjoyed Least:
Ants. Editor's Note: The ant problem has been resolved. Villa Barberino was completely renovated in 2015.
Surrounding Area:
Central to many towns as day trips.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Certaldo, one way, and Poggibonsi, the other way. Both too far to walk. There were a few small villages within walking distance.
Directions:
After a series of sharp, downhill switchbacks, it is the very first driveway on the left. When you pull into the driveway, you will pass 2 farm buildings on the right before you get to the main house.
Check In Out:
It was very easy.

Overall:
Very good.
Enjoyed Most:
Convenient location and view. My grandchildren loved the pool. The key holder was a great help. We had lots of room.
Enjoyed Least:
Ants, the lack of air conditioning, and lack of an American coffee maker. Editor's Note: Villa Barberino was completely renovated in 2015. The ant problem has been resolved and there is now air conditioning in the bedrooms on the first floor.
Surrounding Area:
Close to many interesting and convenient places.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Bagnano is the nearest town, but there is not much there; it's walkable.
