Our first trip to Italy (and Tuscany) was a wonderful experience - thanks in great part to Silvia and Eric and their beautiful Villa Di Campolungo! The villa itself is only a 15 minute drive to Florence, and it is a quiet and serene home base at the end of each busy day. We visisted 10 cities in 7 days, and we started/ended each day at Villa Di Campolungo. The villa is very newly renovated, immaculately clean, spacious, and relaxing. The bathrooms are modern, the bed linens are of high quality and the decor is a wonderful mix of original Tuscan warmth and modern day convenience. The room rates include a fresh, homemade daily breakfast that can't be beat. We looked forward to our morning chats with Silvia and Eric over Silvia's homemade cakes, bread, and jams - not to mention the local yogurts, cheeses, and meats. Silvia and Eric recommended cities to visit, terrific restaurants, and numerous travel tips for the region. We are thankful and lucky to have found our way to this agriturismo and would definitely recommend it to anyone spending time in Tuscany/Florence. The hospitality is incredible, the accommodations are spacious, warm, and immaculate, the food is wonderful, and the experience is much more authentic than staying in a big-city hotel chain.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Villa di Campolungo is the manor-house of a farming estate, surrounded by olive trees, whose origins go far back in time, so much so, that already in 1427 mention was made of it as an "elegant residence". The compound is structured as a tiny hamlet overlooking the gentle Tuscan countryside. It is situated on a hill in the heart of the Mugnone Valley, in the Municipality of Fiesole, a place of uncontaminated beauty, which falls under certain landscape and environmental constraints but which is also strategically near the centre of Florence. The Villa is owned by an Italo-Norwegian family that has devoted itself with great passion and enthusiasm to the refurbishment of the buildings, employing traditional materials and to the re-organization of the farm, which is now once again starting to produce small quantities of the most prestigious extra-virgin olive oil and wine grapes.Six charming rooms, all refurbished with the greatest of care so as not to forego the taste for local traditions, have been derived from the ancient farmhouse and orciaia. Their interiors are decorated in country style, reconciling contemporary taste with period furniture, hand made cotto and fabrics and upholstery of the Tuscan tradition. Guests are welcomed with the warmth and kindness that is normally reserved to family friends and may enjoy all the comforts of a modern accommodation while immersing themselves in nature. ... more less
