DESTINATIONSThe villa is situated in the Chianti Fiorentino, near the delightful hamlet of Impruneta (about 3,2 km) and only 11 km from the historic centre of Florence. The location is particularly good for visiting the major cities and main places of Tuscany due to the proximity to A-1 highway exit of Firenze / Impruneta (5 km), and the highway Firenze-Siena (exit Impruneta Greve in Chianti) only 5 km away.Villa La Pietrina is situated in the countryside around Quintole which means the 5th mile stone measuring the distance of this secondary road of the roman Cassia from the hamlet of San Miniato to Florence. This area has been populated by farmers since the 2nd half of the XVth century and many country homes were built all around the country, mostly renovated in modern times. Many remains of this ancient heritage of farmer culture together with artworks made of "cotto" from Impruneta are still present in this land. The most remarkable are "The Annunciation" (XVIIth century) carved in high relief on the facade of Villa Brolio and the tabernacle at the entrance of the hamlet of Erta di Quintole, with a no longer visible "Crucifixion" fresco, but still reporting the name of the patron and the date of realization (Giovan Battista Petrai1473). Lastly the ancient church in San Miniato recorded since 1156 in the general list of parish of Impruneta.Impruneta is noted most of all for its production of terra cotta. Its manufacturers continue to be symbols of the city and made it famous worldwide. Only a clay of superior quality such as the one from Impruneta, made the construction of the Duomo of the Florence Cathedral and many other masterpieces of the Italian artistic heritage possible since it was one of the most common materials used in both interior and exterior construction.Workers at the furnaces of Impruneta supported the architect Filippo Brunelleschi and his workers also from a gastronomic point of view, creating also a culinary masterpiece, the "peposo". It is a stew of beef cooked in wine and seasoned with pepper in abundance (henche the name peposo which literally translates to 'peppery'), cooking for several hours in the kilns together with the clay bricks. This delicious dish undoubtedly contributed energy to the workers building a monuments such as the Dome of Santa Maria del Fiore! Impruneta offers well-stocked supermarkets, pharmacies, shops, bars, restaurants and other amenities.Lastly, at close range, there are some tennis courts and golf courses, horse stables and trails for trekking and biking.
