New gastronomic specialty at Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort!

Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort is a most special place in the Mugello hills above Florence. Your stay with us will offer the best of local products, from our finest home-produced extra virgin olive oil that’s the pride of the resort, to their inclusion in the elegant dishes of Chef Zanieri in the inviting L’Olivaia Restaurant. There is also the captivatingly gracious aspect of the old villa that welcomes entire families, along with their pets. And don’t forget the olive-oil based SPO massage program to soothe your body and soul, delicious paths to imbibe the intricacies of olive oil and learn its secrets. At Villa Campestri you can enjoy the best of the entire area, from your first breakfast to the last dinner. This year at Villa Campestri, from its re-opening on March 30th, we have a new gastronomic specialty: our guests, at their very first breakfast, can taste and savor the amazing pecorino cheese of the Bacciotti farm at Sant’Agata, a short 15 kilometers from Villa Campestri. These are cheeses of the highest quality imported Sardinian sheep – the most noted pecorino producing region of Italy . There are more than 500 of the sheep grazing on the fields of the Bacciotti farm.

Meals at Villa Campestri: beautiful to look at, products of the best quality and delicious to eat, all fruits of the area, a landscape that has so much to give in terms of beauty and taste. We’ve already written, in our last column, about the rare pinot grigio wines of Rio Cerrini wineries.

From the moment you awaken after a golden sleep in one of our 25 rooms, all carefully and beautifully restored in the style of the Renaissance villa’s origins, you’re ready to welcome the delights of Villa Campestri and the promise of a magnificent day. Your meals will include, in addition to the perfect pecorino, the finest olive-oil based croissants prepared especially with the olive oil of the villa for our guests at a pastry shop in nearby Borgo San Lorenzo, along with coffee that arrives directly from the ancient producer Padovani of Prato. From the very first morning awakening, our guests deserve only the best of the gastronomic delicacies of Tuscany.
