Quintess Collection - Villa Oliveto
The landscapes, the artistic patrimony and the beauty of its cities made of Tuscany one of the biggest protagonists of the touristic scene. Its capital, Florence, famous around the world and home of the Medici family, is par excellence the cradle of Renaissance Art.
Villa Oliveto is a charming Tuscan farmhouse that was beautifully restored in 2008. You will find yourself immersed in a Tuscan paradise.
This stunning two-story property is comprised of a fully equipped kitchen with an adjacent dining area, two generous entertaining areas with a fireplace on the ground level, five bedrooms (two king, two queen and one twin), three bathrooms and a relaxing sauna and hammam (Turkish bath).
The villa includes a solar-heated saltwater pool with loungers and an outdoor pool, which opens from approximately May 1st to October 2nd. There is large private garden surrounded by the adjoining olive groves from the working farm next door. There is seating area and a barbecue perfect for fresco meals.

Villa Oliveto: Our experience was "a tapestry of classical beauty"... from magical Florence (a 20 minute drive from the home) to the beautiful landscapes of Tuscan cities, towns and villages..San Giminiano, Sienna, Lucca, Pisa... We thoroughly enjoyed this magnificently , well laid out home to its smallest detail. The interior is perfectly well laid out and could not have suited us better. Thank you Rita! We hope to return again!!! ”
We spent a week in Villa Oliveto - 4 couples - and have nothing but great things to say about it!! We rented a car and drove from Florence - an easy 20-30 minute drive. The villa is in a working olive grove, away from the hustle and bustle of the town of Bagno a Ripoli. There was nothing we lacked for in the way of amenities and comfort - from the well-appointed kitchen to the luxurious bedrooms, and the steam room to the huge fireplace in the living room - this place was perfect!! We were met by Nancy, who could not have been more helpful - from setting up welcome massages and a fabulous chef's dinner, to shipping our purchases home for us. We took advantage of Nancy's expertise and booked a wonderful tour of the Uffizi and Vasari Corridor. We did the Bike Tuscany wine tour, which was so much fun with Elizabeth and Paula. And we finished up our stay doing the Fiat500Touring trip - all worthwhile!! It was wonderful to return to the villa each day - so serene and relaxing, sipping wine in the backyard as the sun set....such a beautiful place! ”
