We chose this Villa mainly for the olive oil experience. This experience more then satisfied our expectation. Gemma, the young woman that presented the course and tasting was so very knowledgable, charming and engaging. We learned a great deal. One of the things offered was an opportunity to plant an olive tree. We did that for our ancestors and for our family that they would always remember their roots. The food was a gourmet delight and the service was as good as any 5 star restaurant . We have been to Italy many times and will return again to the Villa for sure. We recommend this wonderful place and the Mugello Valley highly.
