“If I could only take one trip in my life, this would be it.”
Reviewed 17 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The setting id incredible. A magnificent farm house with views of the mountains, valleys and the night lights of Firenze. Martyn and Margret are delightful hosts who are very knowledgeable. They were a great help in setting up wine tours, recommending restaurants and giving us the background on what we were looking at.
The food was out of this world as was the wine.
What an enchanted place!

“Enjoy fine views, good food, and great conversations in Tuscany”
Reviewed 14 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Our hosts at L'Olmo were our cousins who had arranged with owners Margaret and Martyn to have the extended family celebrate a significant birthday. We would have enjoyed being together at the pool or around the dinner table in any case, but Margaret and Martyn's local knowledge and care for their guests, our family, made the sun sunnier, the wine more pleasant, and the scented Tuscan hills a view to treasure. This was hospitality at its best so kudos to our cousins and Margaret and Martyn at L'Olmo.

“A Tuscan Masterpiece”
Reviewed 13 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

Tuscany is beautiful and there are many wonderful places to stay. But L'Olmo, in the Chianti Ruffino Region, is in a category of its own. The accommodations are lovely and the setting idyllic, but it is Martyn and Margaret Lewis, owners, who make this a truly once in a lifetime experience. Their encyclopedic knowledge of the region and its wines, their close friendships with the vineyard owners, chefs of the hidden culinary gems and knowledge of everything local, make staying at their farmhouse unique and magical. Come to Tuscany and prepare to be amazed. The month we stayed there, was way too short.
