Tastings & Guided Tours
Our territory is famous for wine, olive oil, cheese, unsalted bread, meat and other products.
These flavours deriving from peasant life, simple but genuine and Villa Grassina, even though belonging to nobility over the centuries has maintained a strong rapport with the local inhabitants and enhanced by the privileges of the surrounding nature.
Every week we organise a guided visit of our farm telling about the history, the land and our products. We visit the family chapel, the olive oil cellar with museum dedicated to the production of extra virgin olive oil.
Learn about our other products - honey, chestnuts and jams ending with tastings of these products typical of the Florentine mountain area. We taste together a selection of local wines with an explanation of their characteristics.
"We were a group of 25 persons celebrating a wedding and we stayed for 5 days in this beautiful place. The villa is old, but amazingly redecorated. It is kept in the old style. The food and service was amazing. The staff did their utmost to make our wedding and stay unforgettable! Highly recommendable.”
“We were so impressed when came to the restaurant for a family meal on holiday. The setting is absolutely stunning! The staff were so attentive and some spoke English well. The food was phenomenal! There is a different menu each night and you need to book in advance as it is very popular! We discovered this when we tried to book a table for a second time on our holiday. Luckily we got in again and we are very much looking forward to returning! ”
“UReally enjoyed staying at Villa Grassina: friendly staff, relaxed environment, perfect pool, superb food. Tennis court at no extra cost, children play ground with stone wall around it, only 30" from Florence. We will come back!
