Description from the manager
Impruneta is a typical Tuscan country estate dating back to the 16th century.
Recently renovated, the property enjoys a panoramic position on a hilltop among verdant olive groves. During its renovation, great care was taken to retain the original style and structures. Warm hospitality, a private atmosphere and the dreamy silence of the Tuscan hills promise an unforgettable vacation. A beautiful garden and pool surround the main building. Guests have the option of renting the main villa only, or taking the entire property for exclusive use.
In the main villa, you will immediately notice the authentic Tuscan framework: brick archway...s, whitewashed walls, beautiful exposed wood-beam ceilings and terracotta tiles. Impruneta is furnished with elegance and style, but always keeping in mind true comfort. Guests will immediately feel at home, whether gathered in the large, fully equipped kitchen; by the fireplace in the warmly decorated living room; or enjoying Tuscan cuisine in the formal dining room, with its antique furnishings for ten people. Or you might find yourself spending all your time dining al fresco and relaxing on the large porch, with its stone table for ten, and adjacent sunbathing area. Rounding off the ground floor is a billiard room; a second, smaller kitchen with electric stove, dishwasher and refrigerator; and one queen bedroom with bathroom. The remaining well-appointed bedrooms are on the first floor, all with private bathrooms (1 with Jacuzzi). All bedrooms in the main villa are air-conditioned, except the bedroom on the ground floor.
Impruneta's three cottages offer wonderful accommodations for guests seeking privacy while remaining part of a large group. Cottage 1 is a two-room home with a private courtyard, attractive lounge with corner kitchen, 19th-century floor and furnishings, queen bedroom with fitted wardrobe, bathroom with shower, telephone and satellite TV. Cottage 2 is a two-level stone home offering accommodations for a larger family. The main queen bedroom features a view over the meadow and shares a bathroom with a single bedroom. The small independent courtyard with dining table offers the perfect place for country breakfasts. This cottage is also equipped with a kitchen, cozy fireplace, terracotta floors, and family heirloom furnishings. Finally, Cottage 3, is a spacious studio flat with striking stone walls, furnished with antique pieces, terracotta floors, fitted wardrobe, and corner kitchen. There is a queen bed and a large, dramatically decorated bathroom. A lovely picture-window overlooks the swimming pool. Outside, you'll find a special area equipped for dining al fresco, and Cottages 1 and 3 are fully-equipped with telephone and satellite TV. All guest houses offer shared use of the swimming pool, table tennis and billiards.
Impruneta is named after the charming nearby village, a 15 minute walk away, which offers plentiful shopping and many cafes and restaurants. Impruneta village is perfect for morning walks, afternoon cappuccinos in the piazza, and lovely evening dinners. The villa is minutes away from Florence's unforgettable treasures; this city casts a spell like no other. Gracing the Arno river in central Italy's Tuscany region, Florence gave birth to the Renaissance and with it, the spirit of the modern Western world. UNESCO statistics show that nearly a third of the world's most important art is housed in Florence. Spend hours captivated by the countless, beautiful museums of this great city. Stroll the Via Vigna Nuova and Via Tornabuoni and linger in their boutiques and designer shops. Centuries of history, art and culture await you.
