About the property

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.
