Imagine a holiday dedicated to all things Tuscan, staying in a beautiful renaissance villa in the hills surrounding Florence, enjoying the region's delicious food and wine, and discovering the ancient art and craft of making extra virgin olive oil. This is just the sort of holiday you can expect to enjoy at Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort.
Just a few kilometers away from Vicchio di Mugello, Villa Campestri dates back to the 1300s. In 1430 the fortified building was enlarged and transformed in manor house. Subsequent architectural modifications were made in the late 1800's which resulted in the villa's present renaissance style appearance. The façade of Villa Campestri, complete with decorative frieze, was an early 20th century addition as were the valuable decorative glass windows which adorn the windows of the chapel, a number of the guest rooms and what is now the hotel restaurant.
Interiors of the hotel are decorated with a combination of vintage and antique furniture and 19th century paintings and prints. The guest bedrooms are located in the villa and in the adjoining farmhouse and old dairy. Rooms enjoy magnificent views over the swimming pool or park.
The dining room of the hotel restaurant, "L'Olivaia", with painted caissoned wooden ceilings, stone window frames and terracotta floors, offers a fascinating environment in which to enjoy the finest Tuscan cuisine and an excellent selection of local and Italian wines. The faultless oil menu ensures the perfect drizzle.
In Villa Campestri's "Salus per oleum" spa guests reap the benefits of the estate's olives yet further, in the form of luxurious wellness treatments and massages which, on request, are performed in the privacy of guests' rooms or in the garden, beneath the olive trees. Before they leave the resort, guests should be sure to plant their own olive tree, ten if they want a bottle of the oil obtained from the fruit to be sent home to them each year!
