Spring Food Events of 2013 in the Mugello: Including the 3-day bridge beginning April 25th.

Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort’s lists the events, sagras and others, not to miss this spring in the Mugello!

With spring comes the overwhelming desire to enjoy as much time outdoors as possible, to get out into the countryside, to explore the open spaces that aren’t available to you at home in the city.  And what better moment is there to begin your spring excursions than the weekend bridge from Thursday, April 25th until Monday, the 29th ?

If you’re thinking of a hop into the country, there’s no more inviting spot than our Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort.  We have all sorts of proposals to suggest for you and your entire family (including the pets!)  Along with the open countryside and village festas, you’ll enjoy the wonderful hospitality of the resort and the cuisine of our chef Luigi Incrocci as you pass a weekend together with your loved ones.  And you’ll take the opportunity to visit the Mugello with its wonderful spring smells, breathtaking views and good weather.
From Villa Campestri it’s easy to get to nearby Scarperia where you can taste all the local specialties at the wonderful sagra that takes place from the 25rd until the 28th of April (for more information check out the site of Scarperia municipality, http://www.scarperia.fi.it). Here you can not only admire the ancient neighborhoods but also the amazingly talented artisans of the old craft of knife-making (we’ve already written about the famous wrought iron of Scarperia)!  And of course taste all of the goodies of the Mugello.

And if the tasting at Scarperia doesn’t complete satiate, don’t worry. You’ll come home in the evening to a warm welcome at our noted restaurant L’Olivaia to continue with the sensual delights you began with in Scarperia.
