Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort
Vicchio di Mugello (FI), Toscane











« In a Renaissance villa come and explore the first Olive Oil Resort in the world»

Famille Pasquali

Description of the establishment

High in the Tuscan hills, 35 Km North-East from Florence, in the heart of the green Mugello, at the end of an avenue of cypresses, surrounded by parkland and olives, you will find Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort, a 13th-century adventure. Cookery courses, truffle expeditions, Olive Oil tastings, outdoor massages in the bamboo grove, plenty of shady nooks to spend time relaxing – this is a sensuous place to stay.
Campestri is the world's first Olive Oil Resort (2,000 olive trees in seven hectares of land) so don't miss the 'Oleoteca', and Gemma's tastings: her knowledge is inspiring. Pass the frescoes by a pupil of Giotto and the 14th-century chapel; observe the wooden ceilings and the old terracotta tiles; contemplate the indoor well, the ultimate in ancient 'mod-cons’.
26 bedrooms, some in the main Villa, the rest in the farmhouse and dairy, are luxurious, spacious, charming, quiet and beautifully clean with their antique pieces, rich fabrics, white towels in immaculate bathrooms and, from the upper floors, amazing views of the Apennines. The Honeymoon Suite features a lavish 18th century canopy bed, each floor has its own big sitting room; outside is a turquoise pool.
Much of the food is home-grown with a local following, and the in-house dining room at the L’Olivaia Restaurant, with its 17th-century frescoes and Art Deco windows, is a great backdrop for it. The entire place is a testament to Viola's gentleness and to her diligent, contented team.
From Villa Campestri it is easy to cover Florence, Lucca, Pisa, Bologna, Arezzo, Lago di Bilancino, the Outlet in Barberino di Mugello. There is a train station at Borgo San Lorenzo, about 10 minutes driving from Villa Campestri which will drop you directly in the heart of Florence.
And then, in the afternoon, time to get back around the pool, some sun and then prepare for a glass of prosecco and decision time on the evening's dinner choices!
