Located at Impruneta, a small town at the edge of Chianti, Villa Saladini is a typical old Tuscan Villa.
Surrounded by the gentle Chianti hills, the 6 hectare estate, owned and managed by the Morici family for over 200 years, is located less than 1 km from the town’s main square and only 12 km from the center of Florence. The bus to Florence stops just in front of entrance gate.
Staying at Villa Saladini is like a blast from the past: it is a place where time has stopped. From the entrance to the small chapel, everything has remained as it was 200 years ago, but at the same time there are modern facilities such as free Wi-Fi also in the garden.
Located on the top of the hill, the Villa, originally built by the local landlord to be used as a fortress against enemies, has a spacious view on surrounding hills.
Due to its location (300 meters above sea level), it has a very comfortable climate, cool even in the hottest summers.
We like to offer our guests a comfortable and relaxing holidays: you will have full access to the large sunny lawn with panoramic views, to the shady and fresh garden with pines and orchads, to the whole park and to olive groves.
The property is surrounded by woods and has ample parking space.
Inside the family property, at the foot of the hill, there also is a small water source, from which flows an excellent drinkable water.
Perla Pedani and Marco Morici, the owners, will be happy to inform you about hikes, cultural excursions, monthly events and weekly markets. On request, we will go shopping for you so that everything is there upon your arrival!
The Villa is located less than 1 km from the town's main square and bus stop for the nearby city of Florence (12 Km) is just in front of entrance gate.
Buses lead to Florence train station Santa Maria Novella (SMN), passing through the “Oltrarno” area (Palazzo Pitti, Borgo San Frediano, Ponte Vecchio, etc.).
There is a ride, in average, every 30 minutes and last bus ride in the evening arrives in Impruneta at 8.50 p.m.
Buses rides are perfect to go to visit Florence during the day and come back in the evening and we will give you all timetables.
