Fresh Finds: Villas that Bring the Farm to Your Table

Love the farm-to-table movement? Good – because you’ll love these villas too. Featuring vegetable gardens and lemon groves, they’re ideal for your next vacation.

Ask most people how the food on their trip to Italy was, and they’ll usually always tell you it was delicious. But, with a stay at some of our villas, food goes far beyond just tasting good – it tastes fresh. As the culinary world’s focus shifts to locally-sourced foods, villas that can provide ingredients to delicious meals come out on top. 

Villas with vegetable gardens
At some villas, you don’t have to wonder where your produce comes from. With gardens directly on their premises, some estates provide you with the opportunity to pick your own vegetables. What’s more, our concierge team can organize cooking classes where you can learn to cook with the foods and herbs picked.

Villas with vegetable gardens include Poderosa, Armonia, and Castello.

Villa Poderosa is located in Tuscany and features 9 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms.

A villa with a cooking studio
There are plenty of things that make Villa Melograno unique – its position on 20 acres, its centuries-old history, its amazing views of Chianti – including an on-site cooking studio. Attendees of the studio, including guests, go to the local market in Florence to shop and then cook the purchased ingredients together. 

Villa Melograno is located in Tuscany and features 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.


Villas with lemon groves
When your villa gives you lemons, make limoncello! At some villas on the Amalfi coast, including Sirenide and Romeo, guests will find fragrant lemon groves on the premises. From there, these bright citrus fruits can be picked and used during a limoncello demonstration coordinated by our team.

Villa Romeo is located on the Amalfi Coast and features 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
