Details of the Apartment

Appartamento Camelia is a beautiful 4 bedroom apartment occupying part of a 15th century villa. Set on top of a hill just outside Florence, it overlooks the Chianti region and is surrounded by 30 hectares of olive groves containing 6000 olive trees. Guests share a swimming pool with one other apartment. Appartamento Camelia can be rented together with Appartamento Azalea to offer accomdation for larger groups of between 12-14 people.

The property is steeped in history. In Renaissance times, the property belonged to the Gherardini family, the family of the famous Mona Lisa, immortalized by Leonardo Da Vinci. For the past 200 years, the property has been in the Calamai family and the current owners, Eleanora and Marco, lovingly look after the property and tend the olive groves.

Marco looks after the olive trees, following strict rules handed down over the generations. The olives are all picked by hand in order to keep each fruit in tact until it is crushed in the oil mill - a process that has to take place the same night that it has been picked. This, combined with the combination of different olive varieties used - the Frantoiano, Moraiolo and Leccino olive trees each have their own characteristics (taste, perfume and colour) - is what ensures this Tuscan oil is so special.
