We have just spent 3 nights at villa olmi, the hotel is set in gorgeous surroundings with beautiful gardens and a very peaceful immaculately kept pool area. Staff were very friendly and polite, we mentioned it was our honeymoon and within 5 mins of being in our room they brought prosecco on ice and strawberries to our room. We had a standard room but were lucky to have one of the two rooms with a terrace overlooking the gardens and pool. Our room was lovely but Looking at pictures of the superior rooms I think we might treat ourselves if we came back!
Breakfast was very nice and plenty of choice, we did eat lunch once at the hotel but would agree with many other reviews that based on this the food was very basic and overpriced, e.g. A chicken salad was literally lettuce, tomato and tiny dices of chicken with no dressing for about 10 euro, would expect more than this from the standard of the hotel. We didn't eat here in the evening as the menu was very pricey (the whole area is expensive but the hotel more so) and we were not expecting much after the lunch. We found a lovely little restaurant about 10 mins walk down the road via tripadvisor which we ate in twice (see review on osteria Brucia tegami). We also found trattoria la gargotta via tripadvisor, but had to get a taxi to this one as its about 2 miles away. La gargotta was excellent (see review) but be warned; taxi there cost us 14 euros and taxi back cost 20 euros, for 2 miles!!
In summary if you don't want to be in the centre of Florence villa olmi is a beautiful relaxing place to stay, we found it lovely to come back after the crowds of Florence to sit by the pool for a couple of hours!
Also see review on Tuscany bike tours which was excellent.
