"This home had the most amazing views! The house itself is a renovated family home and we loved being there. We may have been the first guests of the new season because the pool and jacuzzi were just being opened for the year. Claudio the host is charming, his wife operates a Florence tour company, and his son is a chef. Together this makes for an amazing vacation. The drive from the highway (autostrada) to the house was glorious. We stopped and took about 40 photos on the way. The train directly into Florence was 10 minutes from the house and right next to a large grocery store that was super fun to shop at. Philip, the son of the owner and a chef, spent an evening teaching us to make pasta from scratch, carbonara, and berry compote. The children loved every minute of it! He was an amazing teacher. The views from the home were stunning, the property was photo worthy, the olive oil they produce was amazing. Minutes away from the house (walking) is a tasting for Tuscan wine and olive oils! We would love to return to help with the olive harvest! We can not rave enough about the cooking class with Philip.
If you are planning a romantic escape, this is the place. Make arrangements for a private dinner on the terrace with your own private chef. Surprise your special someone with a lazy swim or jacuzzi soak looking out over Florence (you can see the dome).
If you are planning a family get away, this is the place. Take in the sights of Florence over 3 days and let the kids swim away the evenings.
Practical notes: Parking was excellent. The kitchen had a freezer for ice packs! The home does not have a dryer, but our clothes smelled like the Tuscan sun and dried within hours. The only difficulty was with the wifi. We had all our reservations online and had to have Philip help us to access them before heading into the city.
We would return!"

Great Location, lovely house,and beautiful Tuscan views.
"This is a great place to stay and see Tuscany. The house is very comfortable, and the surrounding views are spectacular. This is perfect place for two couples, and has all the amenities one needs. It's a perfect place to unwind after a day of sightseeing. It is close to many wonderful restaurants and towns, yet located as to provide much privacy and quiet.

A wonderful holiday experience that all my family will never forget
"All our expectations were exceeded at L'Olmo. Margaret and Martyn were exceptional hosts which made the villa and its beautiful surroundings that much more pleasing in all respects.We can't say more than a big, big thankyou to them both for creating such a superb experience."
