My husband & I have recently returned from a five night stay in the Villa & can only find words of praise & high recommendations for this beautiful villa set in such peaceful , idyllic surroundings of olive groves & open landscape where you could relax in a deck chair, on the terrace overlooking the Tuscan countryside or at the pool overlooking more picturesque views. Our stay was made even more special thanks to the lovely staff at reception (Tatiana, Viola & Sandra) who were always so pleasant & helpful, with nothing too much trouble for them. Claudia, at breakfast & at lunch, when we often ate on the terrace, looked after us every day & was so friendly & lovely to talk to. Also, thank you to the young in house chef who cooked some amazing meals in the restaurant in the evening. So much talent for such a young chef!
If you want to "get away from it all" & just relax in quiet, idyllic surroundings, Campestri is the ideal place. A car is necessary if you want to visit nearby towns/ cities or you can take a train from Borgo San Lorenzo, 7k away, to visit Florence for the day , as we did, because we did not relish the idea of driving into Florence. You can , however , just stay at the Villa & relax & maybe take one of the short walks near the villa which are described in a leaflet at reception. We followed one of the walks & found a lovely spot from where you could get a lovely panoramic view of the Villa.
What a find!
