“Relaxation Haven in Eden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Rented a car in Milan and drove out to Tuscany to Villa Campestri. What an adventure - me and GPS system had some words! the Villa is located up a curvy (and I mean curvy) lush road. The grounds are fantastic - green and very well kept. The "lobby" area is charming and very welcoming. We stayed in the Dalia Apartment that is adjacent to the owners' quarters and their super friendly adorable dogs. The apartment is spacious with all the amenities you'd find in your own house. The furniture is so perfect for the location - it's just perfect. The beds were comfortable with extra bedding and towels available. I really felt like I was home.
The breakfast was simple and delicious. A special shout out to the energetic lady working the breakfast area - she did it all alone (at least for the 5 days we were there); and she would come and go and always very polite, friendly and with a smile on her face :D The outside terrace where we took our breakfast is breathtaking. You want a place to get away from it all and relax and regain your energy - this is the place! We spend a couple of days by the pool that is simply beautiful! We also had dinner there and it was so worth it. Excellent, rich, aromatic food that really hits the spot. My only complaint was that I wasn't able to fit in a cooking class - would have loved to have learned a few tips from the chef. The owners- they are friendly, involved and genuinely seemed to care how our stay was going; the front desk & massage lovely ladies - all super friendly and helpful; loved passing by them in the morning and evening to get a smile (they made you feel like family); the restaurant ladies - attentive, friendly and warm. Everyone was great and they made our stay all that much better. Need to get away, go to Villa Campestri - you will not regret it!

This is a beautiful property located off the beaten path. The accommodations are well appointed, the grounds are wonderfully maintained and the resturant is to notch. All a staff were professional, helpful and very accomodating. Of particular note were Dario (thanks for the gluten free accommodations), Gemma and Tatiana were all gracious.

This is a great place to escape to and relax.

Villa Campestri is quite an oasis. The scenery is beyond breathtaking! We were warmly welcomed by the front desk staff and taken to our rooms. Unfortunately we only spent two nights there but would love to return. The pool area overlooks Tuscany and is very serene. The rooms are spread out all along the property in a few buildings. The dining room opens out to an amazing view.
The highlight of our experience was in the olive oil tasting with Gemma. She was beyond outstanding! Her hospitality and knowledge was awesome. She shared her family's history of owning the resort with us and provided us with an amazing experience of tasting different oils and understanding how to differentiate the quality of an oil. She showed us how the olives are grown, processed, and ultimately bottled/canned. While on our excursion with her, we met Luigi, the resort chef. What a great guy!! Very warm and welcoming. He was out on the property picking fresh herbs to use for dinner that night. And his creations are spectacular!
They have several activities to choose from if you want to learn a little something about truffle hunting, cooking, or olive oil (of course).
Before we left, Gemma assisted us by giving us some great recommendations for places to stop on our way to Rome which included a fantastic spa (with mineral baths/hot springs) and a very small local winery where we had a private tasting (and left with some great wine).
We had a fabulous experience and would highly recommend Villa Campestri!

Room Tip: Suites are nice. Rooms have no A/C or WiFi. WiFi is free in the main building (dining room area). T...

Villa Campestri is perched on top of the hill overlooking the Tuscan Valley. Everyone at the hotel went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. I highly recommend the truffle hunt with Giani (or Johnny?)and his dogs. We were so lucky to find 7 truffles with one as big as a baseball! The hotel cooked us a great pasta lunch the hunt. We never had this much truffle on one plate before.

Room Tip: Room 48, with private balcony with sunset views.

Villa Campestri is a nice hotel in an ancient villa that looks like a castle even. The thick walls allow for a chilled temperature in the building even in summer although there is no AC in the room (at least not the one we were). The castle overlooks the valley and is surrounded by lawns and fields – the swimming pool is big enough to allow for a cooling swim in the morning or during the day. All rooms are furnished differently and with ancient furnishings: beds, closets, desks, chairs – this creates a very nice atmosphere that you don’t find everywhere. Breakfast is served in the first floor in the mornings with fresh food, however sometimes it was a bit crowded down there and we had to wait for the waiter to supply additional bread, salumis, cheese etc. Despite from all the above said we are a bit disappointed with the restaurant where we then only ate once: there were only two waiters that night. As the dinner hours are only within 7pm and 9.30 pm and there were plenty of tables & guests to be served, all went a bit chaotic and comic: there was a break for 30 minutes between the appetizer and the main course, then we sat 25 minutes in front of our main course plates once they were finished. When the waiter delivered desert, there was no space to put the desert plates as there was the dinner plates still. We talked to the waiter the next day and shared out experience and observations. He agreed that was a special night but – to be honest – the price level of the restaurant and the expectations that they set with all of it are too high for guests to really accept that.

Thanks to Tripadvisor we are now used to reading many reviews, sometimes pleasant, sometimes unpleasant. By now we are all great critics because being a critic is easy. We do not risk anything by taking advantage of the great power that our words have on the web. But the sad reality is that, in a bigger picture, even the most average work of a small suburban motel has a lot more soul, energy and love compared to the words and the judgment that defines this. That specific evening when you were our Guests was a special night as we explained to you. A very serious last minute problem did not allow one of our waiter to come to work. Plus many guests that didn't confirm their reservations at the Restaurant changed their mind and asked at the very last second to eat at the Restaurant. I found it unfair that just 1 unfortunate evening was the reason to write a review with low rating.

We already spent 2 nights at the resort last year - as we really enjoyed our short stay then, we came back for a 6 nights-stay. And we're so happy we did!
We were warmely welcomed as "coming home" friends and given the suite we'd been asking for, with a wonderful view and a fabulous bathroom. The whole historic property itself is fantastic, so is the location up in the hills, with wonderful views on the surrounding countryside - don't skip the view on the valley when the mist is rising up, it's just gorgeous!
Having breakfast on the terrasse early morning is such a plesant moment and makes you ready to drive and discover the surroundings - immediate or not: Florence, the Chianti region, Lucca, San Gemignano...And coming back in the evening to find peace and beauty in the Villa is just great! .
Havind dinner in the restaurant is remarkably enjoyable too: the food and wine are delicious and the atmosphere is elegant. Really enjoyed too the limoncello Dario used to bring to us in the living room!
We are feeling we've found top of the Tuscan atmosphere... and probably will be back again!
Thanks to all the most welcoming staff, to Sandra, to Bianca, Tatiana, Viola...Dario (and the people working in the restaurant too).

We found Villa Campestri to be commodious and restful. The setting is picture perfect and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. We arrived one day early--we had only booked one night originally-so we got to enjoy two evenings there. Breakfast is delicious and the atmosphere is elegant and remarkably enjoyable. Internet does not work inside the rooms (walls too thick), but works fine in the main living room. The villa is difficult to find and you need a car here, if at all possible. We loved the setting so much that we have considered moving here!!

Room Tip: Downstairs.....dark and lovely......
