“Feels like home”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

I did not plan to stay at Villa Campestri but when I visited my friends and saw the beautiful estate I asked for a room and was lucky enough to get the last available one. The location is spectacular and not even an hour from Firenze airport. The last bit of the road is narrow with two dozen tight turns but when you arrive on the plateau you will discover a splendid view. The gardens are lavish and perfectly well kept. The villa looks more like a private home than a hotel and everyone from the staff is so friendly that you feel like visiting friends. We had dinner twice and it was excellent. For our second night we asked for bistecca Fiorentina (which is not on the menu) so they went to get some and it was outstanding. The same counts for the other items on the menu. Breakfast offers more than what you usually get in Italy, you can even prepare your own fresh orange juice. I had a single room with no air-conditioning but the temperatures on the hill are much lower and therefore you don't need it. The room is equipped with some precious old furniture. The water pressure in the shower is excellent. The key to the door is weighs a ton but is as beautiful as the heavy wooden door. I just love authenticity. There is a pool with comfortable chairs and -again - a great cue on the valley. They offer free WiFi but if it is not very fast and stable. So bring a couple of books and enjoy the silence and beauty of that perfect hideaway.

This place is a well kept secret. I stumbled upon this hotel while booking a trip for my mom and I to Italy and we couldn't have been happier. We only had 2 days at the resort and the weather was horrible but it didn't matter. First and foremost, the food is amazing. If you are a foodie you will not be disappointed. Breakfast is the best breakfast we had in all if Italy. Fresh everything- it's own yogurt maker! The grounds are gorgeous, the people are super friendly. I highly recommend taking a cooking class. It was super fun and we learned a lot of 'tricks' to take home with us as well as new recipes. I have 2 comments of constructive feedback. 1) would have like better recipe directions for our cooking class. We were only given the ingredients as a take away. To be fair, Christian the chef had said we could email him questions but it would have been nice to receive a more substantial recipe. 2). Skip the massage. Mine was very weak and not worth the $$. My mother liked hers a lot to give another view so perhaps it was my masseuse.

All in all, I can't recommend the hotel enough and I will for sure be back when I visit Florence.

We didn't stay but ate here one evening while staying nearby. Slow service was off set by lovely surroundings and tasty dinner. All the hotel guests were gathered in the lobby for the wifi- SO time for the hotel to invest in a few internet wifi routers!! Lovely spot and a delightful place.

This was our third stay at the Villa Campestri. We had a fantastic welcome from Sandra at the front desk and found all the staff as helpful as ever.
We had a lovely junior suite on the top floor with amazing views over the park and valley.
The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom spacious and well equipped.
This hotel is unique and well worth visiting.
We can't keep away!!!

Campestri is set in stunning Tuscan countryside and provides a lovely peaceful spot for some R&R. Our huge bedroom was in a separate building to the main hotel and was beautifully authentically decorated whilst also being very comfortable and functional. Breakfast, snacks and evening meals at Campestri are, as you would expect, simple and awesome! So too is the service from the lovely ladies at reception during the day and the very friendly staff that look after the restaurant. The pool is lovely (a bit nippy but just what you need to cool off!) but I would say inaccessible if you are unsteady on your feet as it lies down a very steep slope from the hotel. The only disappointment was that the Campestri olive oil (that I was very much looking forward to) was only available to buy in very small cans and along with the other products at premium prices. Olive oil is better purchased direct from farms or even supermarkets in this area and all over Italy. Furthermore, the sample olive oil based products provided in the bathroom, which were great, didn't seem to be available for sale. The body lotion and conditioner were the only things that I might have been tempted to take away as a souvenir. Shame.

We arrived into Vicchio by train assuming we would be able to find a taxi. After realizing this wasn't so, we called the villa and they were quick to send a driver to pick us up. Had we known we would have pre arranged transport as it was offered by the resort at a reasonable cost.

The drive up to the resort was spectacular. The views from the resort across the valley are breath taking. Many walking and biking trails to explore.

Staff was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Dinner service is worth the price. Amazing views coupled with delicious meals that showcase the olive oils are fantastic.

A great experience overall. Highly recommended for a different experience in the Tuscany area.

The resort itself was beautiful, but the room we stayed was not.
We booked a twin bedroom, but they gave us a double bedroom with a couch sofa - and the quality of the couch sofa was so bad, and it also ruined the balance of whole room.
Bathroom was small and longish - and there was no light inside the shower, and no place to put towels???
The restaurant was normal - breakfast was good, but the dinner was little bit too authentic, unfamiliar taste.
It's a unique hotel with great location, but I felt the price is inappropriate for the quality and service of the hotel.
