We couldn’t have been happier and more comfortable with this stay! Proximity to Impruneta and Firenze (Florence) was perfect, close to the city, but peacefulness of being far away in the country side. Our hostesses were very informative and communicated regularly with us to make sure that our stay was perfect!! Great memories, great views, amazing place!!
Our Villa is set in a unique natural oasis surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and woods, in Tuscany, far away from the hustle & bustle of the city, yet close to the city of historical and cultural interest such as Impruneta, Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Greve in Chianti.
At less than 5 minutes' drive you are at the nice village of Impruneta, where you can find supermarkets, shops, pharmacies, bars, reastaurants, laundry and bus stop to Florence, if you do not want to drive.
Located on the hills around Florence, Impruneta is an elegant town surrounded by pine trees, houses and mansions.
Especially in the summer where you can enjoy the tranquility and coolness of this pleasant place.
Its traditions date back to Etruscan; then the geographical position, soil potential and its proximity to Florence.
The Marian shrine is definitely one of the factors that made the town famous.
Also notable is the Buondelmonti square with its arcades of the late sixteenth century houses the main city festivals.
This town has maintained a strong bond with Florence: first country residence of noble families such as Gherardini, Ricci, Rossi, Antinori, Corsini, then a holiday resort for many urban families, today the town and his country are preferred as permanently the special geographical location, ease of transport routes and optimal climatic conditions.
Impruneta is known above all for the pottery industry (called Terracotta of Impruneta), which has a centuries-old tradition (in fact even Brunelleschi used it for its Dome), and excellent oil, produced in the numerous mills in the area.
In Impruneta you should visit at least the Basilica of Santa Maria, where you can admire the works of Della Robbia, Benedetto da Maiano and Gherardo Silvani. Also the Buondelmonti square with its arcades of the late sixteenth century that houses the main city festivals is worth a visit.
Other sights in the area are:
Villa Corsini in Mezzomonte, the classic example of a country mansion;
Church of San Lorenzo alle Rose, of ancient origin;
Church of S. Miniato in Quintole, the '300 church, famous for its terracotta facade.
This event takes place every year in the mid-October, and the Grape Festival, which takes place every Sunday in September.
In Chianti Area there are also many other typical villages to visit and very interesting food and wine itineraries.
