Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

L'Olmo is located in the most beautiful part of Tuscany, known as Mugello/Val di Sieve. Close to Florence it is also ideally placed to visit other famous Tuscan towns such as Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca and Arezzo. This area was chosen by the Medici family for their summer homes and to grow wine and olives. There are so many famous places to visit in this area that one could spend a month here and not see everything. Our guests typically enjoy the peace and tranquility of the house and gardens, the 12m x 6m private pool, walking the in woods locally, visiting the wide variety of Tuscan restaurants within easy access, visiting local wineries and learning about the local Chianti wines and the best olive oil in Italy, finding all their shopping needs in the local village, visiting the myriad of local fairs and markets, sightseeing in large and famous Tuscan towns but also exploring the smaller and less well-known villages within easy driving distance, enjoying the warm welcome extended to visitors by the local people.

“Fabulous Tuscan farmhouse with delightful hosts”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2016

We arrived late on the Saturday night and Martyn & Margaret where still up and waiting for us at 11pm, having provided the most delicious meal with wine that we had pre-ordered with breakfast for the next morning and a few other groceries, well worth it! Their wonderful hosting continued throughout, they were discreet enough to think they weren't there but always on hand when we needed anything. L'Olmo is in a stunning location at the top of a Chianti hill, yet within an hour of Florence. The farmhouse has bags of character with big bedrooms and a lovely kitchen. The views are indeed spectacular from inside and from the sun terrace with its bbq, even a drinks fridge so you can get stuck into a long relaxing evening while the sun sets and watch the shepherd bring his sheep up past the house. (watch the aerial video on here and you'll want to go immediately!) The local area is delightful with plenty of villages and small towns to explore and the train station 2 miles away gets you to Florence with ease, though we drove as well which was also a doddle. L'Olmo sits in a huge garden dotted with olive trees with a big swimming pool on a terrace with lots of shading from the fig and other trees, or out in the open if you want to get scorched! The figs were to die for at the beginning of September, as were the punnet of blackberries that Martyn & Margaret picked for us one day. We had a few great meals out in local restaurants but the food from the villages was of such high quality we ate at the house most of the time. Martyn is an expert on the local wine and which set us off on the right track, he even took me on a tour of the best producers. We stayed for one week and wish we'd gone for two. L'Olmo has everything you could possibly need: table tennis and pool toys, board games, good speed WiFi as I needed to keep in touch with work, satellite TV that we didn't use. I can't think of anything negative to say, other than that one bathroom was a bit dated but it was big and worked well so is irrelevant. Whilst the photos and video here are very good it still felt better than we'd anticipated when we arrived which was lovely. We'll go back again for certain, I can't recommend it more highly.
