Villa Olmi Resort

4–8 Via degli Olmi , Bagno a Ripoli
Florence , Italy http://www.villaolmiresort.com/en
39 (055) 637-710

Staying in the 18th-century Villa Olmi Resort—surrounded by expansive green acres just 10 minutes from Florence’s Duomo—means not having to choose between city and country. Recently restored by a prominent Florentine family, the patrician retreat has just 50 guest rooms, all with original details: vaulted ceilings, marble bathrooms, antique furnishings, floral frescoes. Wander the formal gardens or bike the hills of Bagno a Ripoli. In the afternoon, a chauffeur-driven car can make the quick trip to the Duomo and the Uffizi—and be back in time for dinner in the estate’s former stable.
