We’re Back! Villa Campestri Opens its Doors

We’re back in business after opening our doors last month and Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort has made some big improvements to keep our new guests and many returning ones happy. 

Every season, we update our menu with delights from our kitchen, mixing what is in season and available from only freshest local producers with our creative chef, who is excellent at rediscovering old Tuscany classics. Our L’Olivaia restaurant is the perfect Tuscan escape for a meal that will leave you coming back for more, even our bread has a story – low-gluten flour ground in a local mill. We take ‘local’ pretty seriously around here.

This long winter, we worked on our park to make it prettier than ever, expanding areas so that our guests have even more places to relax. We also installed a new PVC liner in our pool (which  you can see above), think lovely reflections for the hot summer days ahead.

To reward our guests this 2015, we also have a special 20% offer for anyone who books before April 30th, which is in just two weeks. This applies to the entire stay. For those who stay with us, not only will we provide you tips on what to do around Tuscany (and our beloved Mugello region), we also offer fun activities such as olive oil tasting, a guided walk through our park, art classes, massage in the bamboo grove (this is amazing), cooking classes (even for little ones), bee-keeping courses, truffle hunts and more. Just let us know what you are looking to try in Tuscany and our family will be more than happy to help.

Lastly, we are very thankful for all of your support. We are thrilled to have so many return customers book year after year which means the world to our family. If you are still looking for a special Tuscan getaway, let us know! We’d love to see you this spring/summer or autumn!

Also keep in touch with us on twitter and instagram and tag your #VillaCampestri photos!
