We just returned from a stay at the Villa Campestri, and are reliving this perfect vacation spot. The setting is gorgeous, the service impeccable(we were treated royally), the food elegant and delicious, and the room beautiful, elegant, and comfortable. The bathroom was filled with lovely complimentary amenities and very clean. We stayed in a junior suite with a friend, who felt very comfortable with the extra bed in the living room. Set high on a hill and looking out over the landscape, the terrace was a magical spot for dinner every evening. The wine list was extensive and wonderful, and perfectly accompanied the interesting and impressive menus.
I would highly recommend the olive oil tasting course given by hotel owner Gemma Pasquali. Her knowledge and passion on the subject are infectious, and we left with a wealth of information about the growing of the olive trees, harvesting of the fruit, production of the oil, and the criteria for judging the quality and taste of commercial olive oils. This course is a must. Gemma was so engaging and generous with her time.
Finally, the prepaid discounted price was a real deal. It would be difficult to find this level of luxury and comfort at this price anywhere in Europe. The Villa Campestri has my unqualified recommendation!
