The winter is quiet and restful in Tuscany: nature seems to sleep for a few months. But even in this period Tuscany offers initiatives and activities for your vacation.
Especially in the winter, festivals in Mugello are dedicated to good food: after the autumn, characterized by olive and grape harvest, new olive oil and wine tastings begin.
During Christmas time, towns and villages in Mugello are colored with lights and decorations, becoming particularly charming. There are also many Christmas markets that can be found in the area, starting with those of Marradi and Palazzuolo sul Senio.
In February, don't miss the Carnival of Borgo San Lorenzo, with large colorful floats, music and masks, until the day of Berlingaccio with the big closing party.
The season is also good to visit the Medici Villas and Castles of the territory, as well as the sights of nearby Florence: just dress warm cloths and have long walks in the hills and trails, enjoying a little peace and relaxation.
In recent years the snow characterize the winter landscape of the Mugello, so it is not unusual to wake up and find yourself surrounded by a white cover, especially during the months of January and February.
In this time of the year Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort is closed for a few months of rest, reopening on March 23rd 2012. If you're interested in staying at our property next year you can already see our special offers page!
