L’OLMO, THE PERFECT TUSCAN RETREAT

L’Olmo is a small cozy Hotel de Charme in the heart of Val d’Orcia, one of the most suggestive and uncontaminated part of Tuscany, middle way between Florence and Rome.

 

Built in 1600, this country house has been restored to retain the ambience and style of that period, with the maximum respect to the original design. The brand new Suites furnished with the elegant Tuscan style, the beamed roof, the parquet floors and the ancient stones floors are blessed by a spectacular view on one of the most beautiful land of Italy.

It was an ancient “Stazione di Posta” once called Ommio; a place where pilgrims along the Via Francigena used to stop for the night on their way to Rome, like the ones that from South Italy used to walk the path towards Santiago di Compostela. With the time the house became a farmstead where peasants used to live, cultivate wheat and breed animals.

Today, after a complete renovation, the country house L’Olmo has been turned into a little Hotel de Charme keeping the original structure elements as the bricked wall of the old granary, the stalls ‘stone arches and the ancient well where you can still drew water.

All around the house is the garden rich of plants, bloomy flowerbeds and cozy spots where to enjoy the stunning view on the valley. A majestic helm tree welcomes the Guests at the entrance of the property than cypresses, century-old olive trees and fruit trees accompany them towards the house.

Here brooms, jasmines and vines roll up the little Pergolas outside the Garden Suites, and while the lavender and the rosemary recall local perfumes, the ancient roses paint with their colors this little paradise.

The location is central to all most beautiful Tuscan Renaissance cities and is the ideal place for nature and photograph lovers who wants to enjoy the unique peace and beauty of Val d’Orcia.
