You undoubtedly don’t want to spend the four-day bridge we have over May Day weekend this year sitting at home twiddling your thumbs. There’s a quick four-day getaway, short but sweet, that will bring you out of your daily grind into a relaxing change of pace: a wonderful world of calm nature and great food in the Mugello, those inviting hills and mountains above Florence. We’re especially fortunate this year to have four days of rest over the May 1st holiday weekend. It’s an exceptional chance to spend a few of the year’s most beautiful days unwinding in the beauty of Villa Campestri and its surroundings. As a place from which to begin your adventures, Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort maintains its warm welcome from the moment of your arrival until the moment you must depart. Situated in the town of Vicchio in the Mugello, a visually splendid and heart-warming location, your hosts at our resort know well how to organize for you the dreamiest and most deserving vacation you can imagine. And, if you’d like something special for May Day itself, there’s a special festa in Vicchio: the Mangialonga, a nature lover’s long walk through the natural surroundings of the Mugello, punctuated by samples of great local specialties at various points along the way.
And in the evenings Villa Campestri and its warm period rooms will embrace you on your way to a special dinner supervised by our fine chef in our noted restaurant.
You’ll return to your daily grind filled with warm memories of four days of peaceful quiet and sylvan pleasure and lots of lovely good food.
