We bought L'Olmo in 2000 as a holiday home and we now love to share it with family, friends and anyone else who loves Tuscany and wants to experience its unique friendliness and culture. We still spend the winter in England where we have our main home, family and friends but we love the summers in the Mugello. Our daughter, Lizzy, got married here in 2008 and we couldn't have chosen a more beautiful location for her special day.
We fell in love with the Mugello area of Tuscany and in particular our local village of Londa while spending holidays here in the late 1990s. What clinched it for us was the welcome we were given by the local people who have all become great friends.
A stunning location with spectacular views across the Sieve valley. Private and secluded without being remote. Friendly local village with great facilities and shopping. Proximity to Florence and ease of reaching other important Tuscan towns.
L'Olmo is located in the most beautiful part of Tuscany, known as Mugello/Val di Sieve. Close to Florence it is also ideally placed to visit other famous Tuscan towns such as Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca and Arezzo. This area was chosen by the Medici family for their summer homes and to grow wine and olives. There are so many famous places to visit in this area that one could spend a month here and not see everything. Our guests typically enjoy the peace and tranquility of the house and gardens, the 12m x 6m private pool, walking the in woods locally, visiting the wide variety of Tuscan restaurants within easy access, visiting local wineries and learning about the local Chianti wines and the best olive oil in Italy, finding all their shopping needs in the local village, visiting the myriad of local fairs and markets, sightseeing in large and famous Tuscan towns but also exploring the smaller and less well-known villages within easy driving distance, enjoying the warm welcome extended to visitors by the local people.
