Villa Barberino Tuscany luxury hotel
It's time to continue the Italian adventures!  A quick recap: at the beginning of the summer, I went on a fabulous road trip through Tuscany; booking accommodation often just moments before arriving in a new area.  It was hands down one of my most special and memorable travel experiences so far, particularly due to some of the absolute gems we came across.  A standout hotel?  Villa Barberino.  A four-star hotel located just fifty minutes away from Florence (capital of Italy's Tuscan region).  This was very much a last minute booking and one that wowed from beginning to end.  Due to a wedding taking place on the weekend we were visiting,  we were kindly given an apartment to enjoy (and uh, try to cook in).  From there, it was a case of changing into something skimpier, exploring the grounds and dipping into the newly modernised pool...
