Olive Oil & Tomatoes
The nature surrounding the organically farmed estate is very diverse and rich in olive and fruit trees, herbs and vegetables.
The Etruscans and Romans already cultivated olives here. When we took over the land in 1987, everything was overgrown here and especially the old olive trees were partly covered by brambles a meter high.
With great care, we made the surroundings flourish again and since 2000, Villa Belvedere is a controlled biological estate. During your stay, you can discover the way we produce or you can even actively participate. Moreover, you can enjoy our goods during your stay or at home upon order.
Our unique olive oil is a very high-class product.
Only olives from our own cultivation - without any pesticides - are pressed fresh and cold in our own press on a daily basis. The result is a healthy and pure olive oil with low acidity and a fruity, mild and delicate flavour. The oil is highly appreciated by connoisseurs and Tuscany labelled it with DOC ("Denominazione di Origine Controllata" / "designation of origin").
