Lovely hotel in beautiful surroundings.Posted Sep 16, 2013
Pros: The views were amazing.
Cons: Thicker walls in the bedroom we stayed in as we could hear the conversations of our next door neighbours which were a mother and daughter.
Location: It was about a 10 minute car ride to the village. The hotel can organise taxis and wine tasting tours with lunch which we did and the views were great
Breakfast buffet selection was very good, we ate in the hotel restaurant once during our 3 night stay which was very tasty.

Feels like a family vacation at friends country estate. Scenery is beautiful, food is great, service perfect. I wish we had stayed longer.

Beautiful 800 year old Mountain estate in TuscanyPosted Jul 9, 2013
Pros: Location and the beautiful estate.
Cons: Bathrooms and beds could be a little softer.
Location: Florence is very close by and easily accessed by car.
The Villa Campestri is an absolutely gorgeous estate in the Tuscan mountains. It is located approximately 2 miles from the town of Vicchio and can be reached by driving up a small and windy road. Once at the Villa Campestri the views down the valley will take your breath away. The Villa is 800 years old and was tastefully renovated to keep its old world charm. If there is one thing worth criticizing it would be the very spartan make up of most bathrooms (most rooms have no tubs and only have a very basic shower with the drain located in the bathroom floor). In addition, the beds are definitely more on the hard side. If you like breakfast, this is the place to be. The spread in the morning does not miss anything. Villa Campestri is not far from Florence. We took a day trip to Florence and it took us approximately 40 minutes from the Villa to downtown Florence by car. All in all a wonderful place to stay if you can do without a fancy bathroom.

Italian countrysidePosted Jun 26, 2013
Location: You need to drive to get here
We had the privilege to have stayed here for four nights in June. It all starts with a tree-lined drive and then a warm welcome at the front desk. The restoration of the building is remarkable as well as the interior decoration, no detail was spared. Truly an authentic tuscan countryside feel from top to bottom. It is also elegant and yet not stiff. If you want to wind down this villa is for you, it is quiet enough you only hear crickets in the evening, birds in the morning, you don't hear cars running, no tv blasting (not that there wasnt a tv-we just didnt use it much), and no machines humming - it is truly a restful place. By the pool is a great view of the smaller towns below, we enjoyed most our afternoons here. We also loved breakfasts, there were cherries picked fresh from their own farm, fresh eggs that you boil yourself in the egg boiler, orange halves that you juiced yourself in the juicer, warm croissants, bacon, sausages...it was a great experience!

Great viewsPosted Jun 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
Stayed here with my wife after visiting Venice. Can be a bit tricky getting here, recommend using a GPS to find it. Amazing views from the property, but very secluded. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was a bit outdated, but was ok. Shower could use a different set-up, had folding doors that didn't always stay together. Bed was a bit hard, with tile flooring throughout the unit. Delicious food in the restaurant, and nice breakfast spread in the morning. Would recommend if you're looking to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle. Took a drive to Florence for the day, only about and hour away. Overall, a good experience.

Hotel with character and charm.Posted Jun 11, 2013
Pros: Staying in a 13th century villa well furnished with a good dining room,
Cons: No lift and high stairs but worth the view on the upper floors,
Location: Very good for touring the northern part of Tuscany and visiting Florence,
The hotel is a 13th century villa with a lot of character, situated on top of a high hill with superb views all around. A car is really required, the access road is a narrow switch back but we did not have a problem, Good size bedrooms with large lounges on all 3 floors, nicely furnished in keeping with an old villa, Meals and selection of wines was to a very good restaurant standard, the evening meal varied with a chefs special each day, you can eat out but it required a car journey into the valley below, There are pleasant short walks from the hotel with a map provided. There are more serious walking areas close by, Florence easily reached using the local train from the stations in the valley below. Good center for touring the small towns, hills and mountains of north Tuscany. Certainly a good hotel for couples

Absolutely LovelyPosted Jun 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is our second stay at the Villa. Although somewhat far from Florence, this is one of the most gorgeous properties we have stayed at to date. Set in a n authentic old-world villa and neighboring guest house, amongst hundreds of acres of olive trees and forests, this property IS the definition of a northern Tuscan experience. The hotel rooms are well-appointed yet rustic, impeccably clean, and extremely comfortable. The service is terrific, from the front desk which helped us locate our lost baggage, to the restaurant with it's top-notch staff and chef. And don't be surprised to see the owners (sisters) themselves on property making sure everyone's Tuscan experience is special. While you're there, be sure to sample the property's own olive oil. It is divine!

Very relaxing. Excellent staff. Food very good. View amazing. Don't miss out on the outlet mall just 20 minute drive.

Fabulous FindPosted May 21, 2013
Pros: The food, the views, the rooms, the staff - in short, everything.
Cons: The steep and winding road in - take the further exit off Road 41 (via an old church of local repute) and it is much better.
Location: Simply gorgeous with wide sweeping views of the valley above Vicchio
This hotel is an incredible gem. Road to Villa Campestri a bit of a challenge but oh is it ever worth it! Words can't describe the beauty of the site and the warmth of the staff. Best hotel in Italy.
