Villa Le Barone and the Della Robbia family
As far back as the Renaissance, Le Barone was already the seat of the Della Robbia family. When it came into the possession of Duchess Franca Visconti, a descendant of the original owners, it was transformed into a small luxury hotel.
Count Corso Aloisi de Larderel and his wife, the current owners and descendants of the duchess, now look after their guests. They make every effort to greet their hotel guests in person, to ensure the continued style of this establishment and to meet their guests’ highest quality expectations.
