We believe that part of visiting any area of Italy is like taking a trip back in time. It’s hard to go anywhere in the region of Italy without discovering a famous relic, or story that makes places like Tuscany so fascinating to travelers around the world. Since Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort is located in the tiny town of Vicchio, we seek to share what makes this famous more than just a gorgeous backdrop. It also happens to be the birthplace of one of the most famous artists in history, Giotto. Born in Colle di Vespignano (in Vicchio) in 1266.
So far 2014 has been a very busy season for us, we have had guests from all over the world combined with the duties of a working farm. It’s not really something we could consider a job, more like a lifestyle that we adore every single day. While our only goal is to provide a relaxing stay based all around the simple qualities of Tuscany, great food and olive oil, we always hope to help anyone seeking a unique trip to Italy by offering a variety of fun options that they will remember forever.
Our young chef, Andrea Perini, may be less than 30 years old but in the kitchen, he is a talented beyond his years. His creativity and energy keeps the guests (and us) waiting to see what else he going to whip up on the L’Olivaia kitchen at Villa Campestri Olive Oil resort.
