The Villa Olmi Hotel opens its doors to all those guests who’d like to have a holiday in a natural setting with greenery, just steps from one of the most visually striking cities in the world. Villa Olmi Firenze is the perfect compromise between city and countryside: located in a setting with old trees and Italian gardens, visitors can experience the peaceful atmosphere of past eras, and yet enjoy the endless stimuli offered by the city centre.
Villa Olmi has undergone extensive restoration that respected the original architectural features, styles and materials of the past, working in collaboration with craftsmen skilled in traditional techniques. The restoration has recreated the incredible atmosphere that Villa Olmi must have had in the late 18th century, during the estate’s finest days.
Various features have been brought to light, including the old frescoes, now framed in elegant stuccoes, and vaulted brick ceilings in the cellar. The furnishings include a selection of antiques, fine wall tapestries and Murano chandeliers. In the green spaces, the Italian garden has been recreated with its elegant geometries of hedges and flowers, along with the hortus conclusus, the medieval garden, more intimate and contained.
Fattoria, Villa and Colonica are the three units that make up Villa Olmi Firenze, in a unique and charming setting where typical Tuscan style – with its exposed beams and terracotta flooring – is combines with the uniqueness and prestige of the most ancient rooms.
Quando un giorno da un malchiuso portone
tra gli alberi di una corte
ci si mostrano i gialli dei limoni;
e il gelo del cuore si sfa,
e in petto ci scrosciano
le loro canzoni
le trombe d’oro della solarità
