VILLA IMPRUNETA

Impruneta Villa Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 14 guests, 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 1 WC

Villa Impruneta can accept a maximum of 14 guests. There are 7 bedrooms – 4 double and 3 singles (but beds can be combined in one of the single) – and 6 bathroom and 1 wc. 6 bedrooms have air conditioning.

The elegant villa, whose construction is so old that some parts date to the 1300, is dominated by a stately tower. The form is somber and dignified both in the design of its layout and in the finish of the facade. But the origin of the property dates even further back. A document dated 1042 reports the sale of a “house with land and vineyards” in this area, indicating without doubt the antiquity of the cultivation of vineyards in the region.

On the first floor we find a magnificent hall with huge fireplace, 2 elegant living rooms (one of which has an office area with fax machine and Adsl internet connection), dining hall with a large table suited for 14 guests, kitchen with microwave oven, traditional oven, freezer and two refrigerators, service bathroom, and 2 double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.

Second Floor

On the second floor we find a large hall with grand piano, a comfortable living room with satellite tv, the breathtaking master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, one large and elegant twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom, one double bedroom and a twin canopy bedroom. These two rooms share a bathroom.

The villa has also two safety boxes at clients disposal. Air conditioning in 6 bedrooms will make your vacation even more comfortable!

The other living area is in front of the hall at the first floor. An elevated square garden with a big oak tree where it's possible to enjoy breakfast in the freshness of the morning or have a relaxing aperitivo at sunset, or try an informal dinner with the tasty dishes cooked by Grace, the villa's cook.

Spacious and good location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 29, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
This is a lovely place with very nice facilities etc. It has great views and looks spectacular. Impruneta is a wonderful town and I recommend 'visitimpruneta.com' to find out info (pages from that website should be printed and put in the local info book to dramatically improve that)
I just would say it was overpriced. For what we paid I would expect the word 'luxury' to be true and it wasn't.
Little things like:
We dropped something under our bed. When we got it out it came out caked in dust (literally). This was true under every item of furniture. I personally expect furniture to be moved when rooms cleaned in a 'luxury' villa.
On the same line, the rug in the main hall (where we let our babies crawl around) was disgustingly dirty (covered in hairs and dirt etc when you look closely) - I'd wager it hadn't been hoovered for a year.
There were numerous lights and plug sockets that don't work around the house and most of the radiators don't adjust so the heating is either off or on (when only the staff can turn the heating off this can cause a problem - but not for those visiting in the summer)
The included wine tasting and tour was nothing compared to any tours if you've ever done any. It should be done on the day you arrive and you should also be able to taste more than 2 of their wines, but oh well.
The farm produced olive oil soap was amazing!
The buses that go from just outside the house are very convenient for getting into florence, but only go about 4 times a day at rather inconvenient times, however we did use it and recommend it.

A Perfect Week

  • Submitted: May 29, 2013
  • Stayed: Jan 2013
We stayed at Villa Impruneta for a week with friends of ours. The Villa was beautiful, impressive and magnificently furnished, and its splendor was tempered by the warmth of our hostess Domitilla and the easy care of Grace and almer, who made fires and wonderful breakfasts every morning. The Villa is surrounded by olive groves and a vineyard, and we spent one lovely afternoon tasting in the cellar with the winemaker, who later shipped us some of his excellent olive oil. We had been concerned about the December weather, but it turned out to be perfect, sunny and slightly cool, and the exciting visits to Florence, museums and lovely nearby towns were unencumbered by crowds of tourists. This is a good time of year to come!
We have been traveling in Italy and Tuscany for many years, but have never had a more rewarding experience than this week at Villa Impruneta. Thanks again to Domitilla for the care, thoughtfulness and devotion that she shows to Villa Impruneta and her guests!

Era perfetto

  • Submitted: May 29, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2012
Our stay at Villa Impruneta met all our expectations and beyond. My husband and I have traveled in this area many times before and relished staying in such a wonderful house. Villa Impruneta is a beautiful house, wonderfully restored and maintained. Grace and Almer provided for our every need, down to a blazing fire each morning at breakfast. Domitilla is a gracious hostess, always ready to help. Such was the spell that Villa Impruneta cast on us that we were often reluctant to leave, preferring to stay at the house instead of traveling the 20 minutes down to Florence. When we did go to Florence, however, the trip was easy and quick. We wholeheartedly recommend staying at Villa Impruneta. We hope to return immediately with all our family.

Florence exclusive Villa Impruneta is surrounded by vineyards and olive orchards in the hillsides of florentine Chianti, located on the road that connects Bagnolo to Impruneta. Impruneta is a very nice little town whose reputation is related to the production of “cotto” (the cotto tiles of the Duomo, in Florence, were made in Impruneta).

Villa Impruneta is located only 2 km from Impruneta, it measures 900 square mt and we can find the famous imprunetine cotto in the amazing ceilings of the villa. Although the reputation of the estate is above all linked to the quality of its products – its wines and extra virgin olive oil have won a great number of prices – interest and attention have been paid to the historical and architectural elements of the villa.

Villa Impruneta is located only 12 km off Florence, a mere 20 minute trip by car, ideal for those who would like to visit the Uffizi or Ponte Vecchio without the inconvenience of finding a parking for their car. In fact the bus stops at only 100 t from the villa's gate and takes directly to the center of Florence!

Villa La Querce is also located only 5 minutes away from the motorways which lead to Tuscany's main attractions: Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca, Pisa, Cortona etc.

Visiting these jewels will be the easiest thing! Villa Impruneta promises to you an unforgettable holiday in the beauty of the Florence hills, in the well renowned Chianti area, among olive trees and vineyards, with the world's most famous monuments at hand.

Activites (Included in the rental price)

NEW! Free guided walks in the area around the villa (hills and forest) and in the mountains of Chianti. Inquire with the owner well ahead of time and sign up when you arrive at the property if you wish to do it.
