We recently stayed at Villa Campestri for five nights. It is a very friendly place, where the owners and employees go out of their way for guests. We reserved a room without thinking about needing a ground floor room (no elevator). Not to worry, they graciously agreed to change our room. As many have observed, this property is historic, but bathrooms have been updated. The food is fabulous. We had dinner every night. Dario manages the restaurant. He speaks excellent English and can describe all the dishes for you. We especially enjoyed the risotto special one night with vegetables and saffron. The filet of beef is also spectacular. The wine is also excellent. All very reasonably priced. The propery is located on top of a large hill. Once you get to the road that goes to the property, you have a 2 mile, narrow, twisty turny, drive. Just be prepared. We enjoyed market day in nearby Borgo San Lorenzo. Florence is easy by train or car. We also drove to the Chianti region and to the medieval town of Lucca. It's about a half hour drive to the autostrada. We had a great time, even when the weather didn't cooperate.
