It is always a little nerve-wracking to reserve a home sight-unseen, relying only on pictures and past reviews. La Quercia exceeded our hopes and expectations. It provided the perfect setting for a magical family vacation. The villa itself was spotless and spacious and well-appointed and charming. The grounds and the views are spectacular. And the hosts, Veronica and her daughter, Margherite, were gracious and responsive to our every need. Be sure to take a cooking class with Veronica one day. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The bus from Impruneta to Florence is on-time, regular and so easy -just about 25 minutes. The one thing that I would point out is that the walk into Impruneta is certainly doable, but it is uphill much of the way in and we ended up shuttling people to the bus stop more than expected. You definitely need to have at least one car. I would definitely rent this villa again and I can highly recommend it.
