Are you planning your holidays in Tuscany and you are looking for a place that combines the beauty of nature, art and entertainment? The Mugello Valley is the destination you are looking for!
To truly appreciate the beauty of this corner of Tuscany, we recommend the period from Spring to Autumn.
Between March and April you will appreciate the beauty of the glorious nature of the Mugello, where you can get lost in long walks, on foot or mountain bike. In addition to visiting the beautiful Medici Villas, you can enjoy an Easter tour in Florence, which is about 30 minutes by car from Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort, and assist the traditional "Esplosione del Carro". In the spring it also takes the famous "Festival dell'Infiorata" in Scarperia: streets are covered with colorful designs made with flower petals.
Summer is the time to relax: nothing better than a break at Lago di Bilancino, equipped with all facilities for leisure, such as chairs, loungers and parasols. If you love sports, you can enjoy kite-surfing, canoeing, windsurfing, fishing and much more but for lovers of Grand prix, the appointment is July 15, 2012 with the Grand Prix at the Mugello circuit.
Summer 2012 will be full of great music in Florence, with the concerts of Radiohead, Bruce Springsteen and Madonna, to be held between June and July. Lovers of good food: do not miss the traditional festivals dedicated to "Tortello di patate" that are held around the Mugello Valley.
In early September do not miss the Medieval Diotto Festival in Scarperia.
October and November are months of magical colors if you are in the Mugello: it is the period of the olive harvest and extra-virgin olive oil press!
If you want to discover all the wonders of the Mugello, do not miss our special offers but if you want a unique experience to discover the Tuscan cuisine, we recommend our tour "AmorOlio: the kitchen speaks Tuscan" at Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort from March 23rd 2012!
