My husband and I spent 3 nights at L'Olmo in the middle of October and we can't stop telling everyone what a wonderfully tranquil, beautiful place this is. We stayed in the garden suite which had a beautiful private garden right off of our room with a traditional Tuscan view of the golden hills and cypress trees. We spent every afternoon by the pool reading and having a glass of wine which was so relaxing. Guilia and Gabriella were fabulous hosts and helped us to plan our days with just the right amount of activity while also saving time for relaxation. We had dinner there twice because the lasagna was incredible. Every morning we looked forward to our breakfasts which included fantastic homemade jam that they buy from a local 95 y/o Italian woman who makes them herself. I would have bought a case of it if I could have! We absolutely loved Antonio ~ he was so gracious and attentive, kind and patient. He toured us around the grounds showing us all the different fruit trees and laughed as my husband tried an olive from the tree (not too tasty!). It was a magical 3 days we had at L'Olmo and I know we will be back!
