The original tower structure of Villa Le Barone dates from the mediaeval period when it was the seat of a Baronetcy, hence the name “Le Barone”. During the Renaissance, the tower was expanded into a villa with its own agricultural estate. It was the summer retreat of the famous Florentine ceramist and sculptor Luca Della Robbia. After the first World War, Marchesa Maria Bianca Viviani Della Robbia managed Villa le Barone as a wine and olive oil estate. Maria Bianca was the granddaughter of François de Larderel, a French 18th century industrialist, who discovered and developed the use of geothermal steam in Tuscany. The heirs of Maria Bianca own and manage Villa Le Barone to this day.
