l’Olmo Hotel’s History
The Tuscan farmhouse of L’Olmo dates back to year 1600.
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 this includes L’Olmo among the most precious antique Tuscan dwelling houses
