Fantastic holiday location

  • 5 of 5

Luca met us at the house which had been stocked with water, juice , olive oil and wine which meant we did not have to go shopping..........

The house is ideal with everything you need including a garden where the sun comes round in the afternoon and is a sun trap.

The house is located in a small village which is mid way between Siena and Florence so is ideal for seeing Tuscany but village itself has everything you need.

Vineyards and olive trees are one of the main engines of the local economy. Our grapes produce Chianti Classico, Chianti Colli Fiorentini, Chianti DOCG and our olives produce one of the best extra-virgin olive oil.

The wine cellars of Giannozzi, Pasolini, Poggio al Bosco will be glad to offer you their genuine and traditional products.

Barberino is the perfect location for couples or families who want to relax theirselves and spend their holidays in a quiet and welcoming atmosphere of a small Tuscan town, apart from big commercial tourist centres, which are often crowded and noisy. Barberino, with a population of just one thousand people, is a restful place both for villagers and visitors.

Even if Barberino is a small village, it offers many facilities: there is a restaurant, an excellent Italian pizzeria, Café Bijou with free wi-fi, a bakery open every day, the supermarket Coop, the village library with Internet-point, free of charge parkings close to the apartment. Public transport services link Barberino to close towns.
