“The best holiday in Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We were very reluctant to leave this haven. The food service and ambience are all superb. This is what holidays in Tuscany are all about. We will ask HW to rearrange our itinerary to include a 5 nights stay here!

I've never felt that a hotel should charge more before staying at Villa Campestri.

The setting and the views are fantastic.

The olive oil experience was lovely and unique.

The sunset dinners were superb. The food was amazing and the service was excellent.

We had major issues with the Italian postal service from our prior hotel, which Villa Campestri staff were hugely helpful in addressing for us. Without them we'd still be tracking our personal possessions across Italy!!

If the rooms had air conditioning it would be totally perfect. Because of the hotel being a listed building (or something of the sort), the hotel is without air con. We stayed in the very height of summer and we still managed to sleep well. The walls are very thick so it's a naturally very well insulated building.

We can't wait to come back here. Just a great, high quality, incredibly relaxing stay.

Villa Campestri is a beautiful Olive Garden villa outside of Florence. It is a magnificent heritage property dating back to 13th century. The facility represents the traditional Tuscan architecture, the rooms are tastefully decorated and meticulously maintained. The setting and rooms are absolutely beautiful. The best attribute of the Villa is the staff. They are all exceptional. Without a doubt the most attentive staff at any hotel or villa that I have stayed, and I have stayed in some of the finest hotels in the world. This was a truly wonderful stay in a fantastic Villa that is located on a wonderfull hilltop. The views from any vantage point were truly breathtaking and provided endless photo opportunities. We spent four lovely October days relaxing, swimming, reading and exploring. The complimentary breakfast was extensive and the lunch/dinner menu offered many culinary delights. Some highlights we chose to book were wonderful and included an olive oil tasting, wine tasting at a local winery.

Recently had the pleasure of staying at Villa Campestri for the AmorOlio program. An outstanding experience overall, by far best vacation ever taken. Stunning location, meticulously and lovingly restored by the Pasquali family. AmorOlio guests treated like VIPs. Food, wine, olive oil, made a premium culinary experience.

AmorOlio is a week-long culinary experience hosted by author, Nancy Harmon Jenkins, and talented agronomist, Gemma Pasquali. Participants spend quality, one-on-one time with leading industry experts. Participants are immersed in olive oil education and use, hands on cooking classes, wine tastings, market visits, cheese making, vineyard and knife making tours, not to mention harvesting olives and watching them press, filter, and package the freshest, highest quality product you’ll ever have.

I highly recommend a stay at Villa Campestri and the AmorOlio experience. Combined, this made for an unforgettable experience that I will remember and cherish for the rest of my life.

Room Tip: No bad rooms to be honest. Every room is different and has a great view to a portion of the estate.

We were there for a few days in November as part of our honeymoon trip to Italy. It was absolutely amazing. The service was extraordinary. All of the staff went above and beyond for us. The scenery was breath taking, the grounds were magnificant. A must see for sure. I can not say enough about how good the food, service, and accomodations were. The rooms were big, warm (it was cold outside!) and extremely clean. The restaurant at the resport had the best food we had in Italy. The dinner staff was so accomodating and the prices were extremely reasonable for what you got. It is in a good location as you can either stay on the resort and relax, or drive to one of the near by towns only a few miles away. I HIGHLY recommend staying here and will definitely go back!

This being my first trip to Europe, I was looking for a different experience and not just the normal "sightseeing vacation". The "culinary experience" at Villa Campestri was the perfect fit. I loved everything about it, the food, the surroundings, the people, the wine, especially the olive oil! I've never tasted olive oil like it should be and now I crave it. The staff at Villa Campestri was amazing! Everyone went out of their way to make our stay memorable. And Dario-he is a gem! The only bad thing I can say is that I ate way too much good food!
Thank you Gemma and Paulo for such a wonderful place. I can see and feel your passion for the olive and for the history of your country. I hope to someday return!
