Villa Olmi Resort, part of the M Gallery Collection, is an elegant 4.5-star resort in a country estate within a 10-minute drive of the Ponte Vecchio and the centre of Florence. It consists of a restored 18th-century villa, a rural house, a rustic farmhouse and a classic-style Italian garden, set within extensive rural grounds. 

The villa's rural location, in Bagno A Ripoli, en route to the Chianti wine-growing region, makes it a good base for exploring both the Tuscan countryside and Florence. The best plan is to hire a car for excursions around the country and for sightseeing in the city, however you can also take advantage of the resort's free daily shuttle bus to and from the city centre.

The 62 sophisticated, high-ceilinged rooms and suites are decorated in traditional Florentine style and furnished with original antiques, and include chandeliers, marble bathrooms and Jacuzzi bathtubs. They all offer free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and 24-hour room service. Upgraded rooms and spacious suites also have separate living areas, and some feature original frescoes, 4-poster beds and private garden access.

The property includes an upscale restaurant serving Tuscan specialities and international cuisine across an indoor dining hall, an open-air bistro under the pergola and a veranda overlooking the gardens. There's also a cocktail and wine bar offering a selection of regional wines and cheeses. There's a large heated outdoor pool, a fitness centre with a gym, an exercise room, a hot tub, a golf course, a tennis court, business facilities, meeting rooms, a banquet room, a dry-cleaning service, a babysitting service and a self-service laundry.
