Civitella in Val di Chiana House Rental Photos and Description

9 Bedrooms, 8.5 Baths (Sleeps 18-20)

Each of the nine bedrooms at Barbazzano is uniquely furnished with beautiful antiques, oriental rugs and appealing fabrics. Many have cathedral ceilings. Mattresses are highest quality foam, guaranteeing a good night‘s sleep. The house contains eight and one half baths, six of which are ensuite. Each bathroom features hand-crafted wall tiles from southern Italy. In-floor radiant heating throughout the house assures your comfort, even on cool days.

Barbazzano is a feast for all the senses. The distinctive aromas of flowering wild broom, roses in bloom, lavender and fragrant rosemary permeate the air. Our signature fruit is the blackberry, which ripens in profusion every August; pick all you can eat, or let us help you make your own preserves to take home with you. In September eat sun-warmed figs fresh from the tree and grapes from the vine.

During your stay, get to know our distinctive corner of Tuscany on foot or horseback. The hills surrounding Barbazzano contain numerous trails to explore. Hike or ride through acres of olive trees, past vineyards and up wooded hillsides. Barbazzano lies within a thousand acre game reserve; you may catch a glimpse of pheasants, hares, deer, woodpeckers and reclusive wild boar, all of which abound nearby.

There are hair dryers in every room, six of the nine bedrooms have an ensuite bath, two others share a bath with adjacent additional half-bath, one bedroom has a bath across the hall, we have a portable crib and an assortment of children’s toys, the pool has a poolhouse with full bath, half bath, refrigerator and covered loggia with table, chairs and sofa, and there are two clothes washers in the house.

Internet Booking to Paradise

  • Submitted: Apr 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2009
We had a truly spectacular stay here at Barbazzano! Planning over the Internet always involves a certain "leap of faith." Who knew this leap would land us in Paradise?! Thank you for all of the obvious passion you put in to making Barbazzano the welcoming and wonderful home it is. We hope to return again one day.

Lifetime Wedding Memories

  • Submitted: Apr 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2011
Our visit to Italy and especially Barbazzano is a memory of a lifetime for us. Our wedding at your villa was so beautiful because of the setting and all of the wonderful people here helping. We can't say enough about [the staff] - they took such good care of us, we felt like family and the food preparation by [your chef] was incredible. We ate and lived like Kings and Queens! Our memories are more special because we shared them here at Barbazzano. Thank you all!

Incredible Heart, Passion and Generosity

  • Submitted: Apr 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
We came as five families from Woodinville, WA, lured by enticing web pictures of an Italian villa, using this as the center point to the group for our three week vacation throughout Italy. What I hadn't realized until we arrived was the incredible beauty of the surroundings and the vistas. Some of us had assertive day trips and evening restaurant plans that were quickly erased. There is nothing like reading a book on a chaise listening to the harmony of bees in the lavender and watching the butterflies. I have never experienced the sunset dinners under the vines like the ones cooked and served by [your chef]. For me the greatest memory will probably not necessarily be the place, Barbazzano, but the people. As we established connections with [your staff], we experienced incredible heart, passion, generosity and what may be a true flavor of Tuscan country culture. We wish you well with Barbazzano.

Compares With the Best of Relais & Chateaux

Compares With the Best of Relais & Chateaux
  • Submitted: Apr 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
I have tried to express to you via emails this week the joys my family have experienced here at your "passionate work of art." The details are inspiring; the obvious quality of the workmanship is astounding; and the quality of your staff amazing. This place is to be compared with the best of "Relais and Chateaux"! We hope to return with friends and family over the years. We were very comfortable - all 13 of my immediate family plus our Italian friends. I hope to meet you some day.

Nestled high in the hills between the Chiana and Arno valleys, the tiny hamlet of Barbazzano has been authentically restored to an exacting standard. Private without being remote, Barbazzano sits in the middle of over one thousand acres of vineyards, olive groves and farmland. Groceries and other essentials are a ten minutes’ drive away. The house is strategically located to provide easy access in under two hours to practically every major attraction in Tuscany.

Other Activities: shopping, wildlife viewing
