Our stay at Villa di Campolungo EXCEEDS all my expectation of what a Tuscan vacation would be. A short 20 min cab ride from Florence, the Villa is nestled in a picturesque hillside village, and the host Silvia is the most warm, wonderful, gracious, accommodating host I have ever encounter. We stay in the room "The Annex" and it is big, comfy, charming yet modern, and elegantly decorated. You can really tell Silvia has superb taste with the tasteful renovation & the high quality furnishing / bed linens she has chosen. We also have spectacular view right out our windows & terrace and every where you look around the property the view is out of the world beautiful. Silvia and her husband also made us the most incredible breakfast spread that consist of freshly home made bread, frittata, jams (i think total of 6 different kinds), local-made cheese, yogurt, honey...etc. What we ate was for far more delicious (and healthy) than something served from a five-star hotel. On the morning of our departure, Silvia couldn't get a taxi from the local taxi company so she simply drove me & my friend to the train station in Florence ! I have stay at many B&B and can truthfully say Silvia is the most kind-hearted, welcoming, and superb host I have ever met. I cannot thank her enough for making our stay the most perfect Tuscan vacation. Villa di Campolungo should be your #1 choice to stay if you are looking for a home-base to explore the beautiful Tuscan landscape within close proximity to Florence.

As others have said, you would be hard pressed to find somewhere better in the region. Although beautifully rural, it's near Florence, and we even managed the stay without a car, getting buses and taxis when needed (and Sylvia very kindly gave us two lifts to save us time). You have all the benefits of being near a city while being able to relax in a rural setting with absolutely stunning views. (Really I doubt the view could be bettered.) I love interiors and Sylvia and Eric have restored and decorated their B&B with fabulous taste and sensitivity to the villa's style. It feels like being in a luxury 5 star hotel, but with all the personal touches and homeliness that can only come with a small guesthouse. One morning Eric took the time to tell us about the history of Florence, he did it with such enthusiasm and we couldn't wait to visit! I haven't even mentioned the food! We looked so forward to breakfast each morning, as everyone has said, it's just perfect. In good weather you can enjoy breakfast on the terrace and after our hectic wedding, it was here on the terrace sipping hot drinks and eating Sylvia's freshly baked bread that we finally relaxed. (I mentioned to Sylvia that it was the best bread I'd ever tasted - it was true!). For evening meals we went a few times to the local restaurant Mario alla Querciola, which was lovely, or into Fiesole which has lots of excellent restaurants. We hope to return again. As we left, Sylvia waved us off from the driveway as though we were her personal guests. This is a really special place and we're so thankful we got to spend our special week here. Thank you.

Villa di Campolungo is the perfect place for a Tuscan vacation. Although our 9 day vacation was two months ago (May 2014) my mind keeps wandering back to spectacular views from our terrace overlooking the olive groves and vineyards. Initially we spent a lot of time “virtual viewing” (Google Earth and Street view) Villa di Campolungo and the surrounding area, not to mention reading the numerous reviews here on tripadvisor. Needless to say, when we arrived Villa di Campolungo it was everything we had imaged it would be and more ….. way more. One of the selling points of Villa di Campolungo for us was staying just a short distance outside the city of Florence, allowing us the convenience of being able to enjoy the quite Tuscan country side after long days of sightseeing in Florence. Villa di Campolungo is approximately 8 miles outside the city of Florence, and located on the hills overlooking Olive Groves and Vineyards. They are located on a long winding (less traveled) gravel road, which makes you feel like you’re staying this huge private Villa Estate. They are on about 73 acres which contains their numerous Olive groves, and each fall they harvest and produce their own Olive Oil, which is fantastic. As we didn’t rent a car, every day we walked down the winding gravel road to the nearby town picking up the train or local bus to Fiesole and/or Florence. This was a great way to experience the local flavor of Tuscany, outside the hustle and bustle of Florence. The other positive point was the innkeeper Silvia, the first thing I noticed was that she personally responded to every review posted on Trip Advisor. Also when I contacted her with (many, many) questions about Villa di Campolungo and the surrounding area she responded immediately with great care and enthusiasm. She made the reservation process very smooth and effortless. During our stay Silvia always took the time to help us, from understand the ins and outs of the public transportation (Like I stated before, we didn’t rent a car) and even offered to drive us to a few of our starting points. On our first night she graciously dropped us off and picked us up at a local restaurant. One day Silvia picked fresh Artichokes from their kitchen garden and served them with their Olive Oil and salt while explaining the whole process of harvesting and producing their own Olive Oil. (Silvia is a certified Olive Oil tester). We stayed in the Annex room, the decor was Elegant and Spacious. The views from the large windows and from our private terrace were specular. Villa di Campolungo blends elegance of the old Tuscan villa style and the comfort and function of modern accommodations. The breakfast each day was fantastic. Silvia greeted us each morning and pointed out the local ingredients she used in preparing the dishes. Silvia’s baked breads and desserts are fantastic, and were the perfect beginning to long days of exploring Tuscany. So... if you’re looking for the perfect Tuscan vacation, Villa di Campolungo is the place to stay. Silvia and her family will make you feel right at home and pampered ……

Last year in April my wife and I spent 2 weeks at Campolungo, we still talk about how beautiful and ideal this location was for our trip. We were able to easily travel to Florence by bus and train and take a nice long walk home in the fresh air and beautiful surroundings. We then rented a car and was easily able to visit local towns in which Silvia made great recommendations. We would return, stopping at the local market and enjoy eating our dinner on the terrace. We would then wake up to the fantastic breakfast. My sister in law and husband joined us for a few days and they also loved it. Sylvia and Eric make you feel welcomed, it's truly a special place!
