Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort is a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel in Tuscany. Situated in Mugello this Renaissance villa is just half an hour from Florence and is surrounded by ancient olive groves that produce an excellent olive oil. Built around a 13th-century fort this Chic Retreat is steeped in history and there are still some of the original frescoes dotted around the interior of the villa. Relax by the pool, go mountain biking or taste some of the olive oil from the estate before enjoy some authentic Tuscan cuisine.
There is an 18 hole golf course not too far from Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort as well as mountain biking (the bikes are complimentary) in the surrounding hills and valleys. Shoppers will love the fact that there is a designer outlet with some great Italian brands, less than half an hour away. Florence is within easy distance especially if you have hired a car - alternate a day by the pool with a trip to one of Tuscany's maning charming villages or hilltop towns.
Breakfast at Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort is a veritable feast with Italian meats, cheeses, yoghurts, fruits, cakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, Italian pastries, braided bread and olive oil. The restaurant L'Olivaia is led by chef Andrea Perini whose dishes are inspired by the Extra Virgin Olive Oil from the estate. This cold pressed rich green oil is complemented by fresh, organic produce from the estate's own garden and dishes include delicate carpaccios, home made pastas and the famous mouthwatering Cinta Senese beef.
