I hope I will come back, and if I do we will cook and learn Italian! I really loved it here! Thank so much for all you did to make this trip to Italy a real garden of Eden! Gracie Mille'

Welcome home to Tuscany!

  • 5 out of 5
A beautiful authentic Italian villa, in the midst of the Tuscan countryside. All the benefits of being "off the grid", while in close proximity to the wonders of Florence and Siena, and numerous spectacular Tuscan villages. The property is exactly as it is described; the views are spectacular from each and every window. The home is immaculate and the owner is attentive without crowding you.

We were most pleased with La Qercia

  • 5 out of 5
(Replacement review as I made an error in the first one.)
For our 40th wedding anniversary our entire family, 10 of us...six adults and grandchildren that ranged from 3 months to 12 years, flew to Rome rented two cars and drove to La Quercia! Away from all traffic, but close enough to get to the Coop in Impruneta, (amazing small grocery with everything fresh that you need and great meat) our family could not have been more pleased with our week at La Quercia. We took day trips to Siena and San Gimignano, Pisa and Luca; ranged through Chianti looking for that special wine and evening meals and drinks on the loggia with our finds from the day.

The Villa was so comfortable and the setting could not have been more beautiful. The family did everything they could to make our stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. We loved the butler-served dinner put together by Veronica. It was one of the best meals we’ve had. That meal pointed out our one error; we should have taken cooking classes from Veronica!
On the financial side our banker thought we were nuts for wiring money to someone we didn’t know, but ALL of the financial arrangements worked. After our stay we went to Florence for three days and everyone agreed La Quercia was the best.

Also we want to give Margareta a shout out for taking care of the children for us twice. You were excellent.
We would love to return,
The Fulcher Family from Nashville

Beautiful villa for a fantastic family vacation

  • 5 out of 5
3 generations of our family made the trip to Italy this past summer, and it was truly one of the most memorable few weeks of our lives! 7 of us - ranging in age from 5 to 70 - spent 2 amazing weeks in Tuscany, and we couldn’t have asked for a better trip. Our first week was in Impruneta at La Quercia. Impruneta is a beautiful town and La Quercia is quiet villa nestled amid vineyards and olive groves, and yet just an easy 20 minute drive to Florence. We loved being able to get to the city easily to explore all the sights, but when it was time to head back to the villa, we could relax with a glass of chianti on the deck and enjoy the sunset. The villa was well stocked with everything we needed, and we had a great time learning to use the antique shutters and doors that made the place truly feel like “a castle” to our boys. Veronica was an incredible host, and made us breakfast for our first morning in Italy and a great picnic for our first day exploring Florence. We couldn’t have asked for more!

La Quercia Exceeded our Expectations

  • 5 out of 5
It is always a little nerve-wracking to reserve a home sight-unseen, relying only on pictures and past reviews. La Quercia exceeded our hopes and expectations. It provided the perfect setting for a magical family vacation. The villa itself was spotless and spacious and well-appointed and charming. The grounds and the views are spectacular. And the hosts, Veronica and her daughter, Margherite, were gracious and responsive to our every need. Be sure to take a cooking class with Veronica one day. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The bus from Impruneta to Florence is on-time, regular and so easy -just about 25 minutes. The one thing that I would point out is that the walk into Impruneta is certainly doable, but it is uphill much of the way in and we ended up shuttling people to the bus stop more than expected. You definitely need to have at least one car. I would definitely rent this villa again and I can highly recommend it.

Amazing retreat in beautiful Tuscany

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, our five boys (age range 14 -3) just spent five days in Impruneta. We LOVED our stay. Veronica and Margherita went way above and beyond - we felt pampered the whole time and yet we also felt like we were totally secluded at times. Veronica is an amazing cook - our best meal in all of Italy was when we cooked with her. The house is lovely and the vistas are inspiring. We had just spent 4.5 days in Rome, which was awesome. And while we did take a few day trips, we mostly relaxed inside and outside the house. It was the perfect place to recharge. All the kids asked if we could go back there someday, perhaps when they can enjoy the pool a bit more. (The pool was lovely, but the weather in the summer is better suited to outdoor pool time in Tuscany.) We played a lot of soccer on the mini field (anyone with kids will appreciate that the house was equally comfortable and offered loads of places to walk, run around and play soccer!). Our only challenge was in deciding whether to be completely honest in our review because we want to be sure that Villa La Quercia will be available for us the next time we want to visit! Thank you to both Veronica and Margherita - we hope to see you again soon!!

A perfect and charming house for a family vacation

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you Veronica and Margherita! My husband, our five boys and I just finished a brief stay in la Quercia. We spent 5 days in Rome and then came to Impruneta for 4 days. It was the perfect place to have access to Florence/Tuscany and to wind down. We all agreed that we would like to come back in the summertime for a much longer stay. The food was delicious - Veronica's cooking was the best we had in all of Italy!! We took a cooking class one day and I would highly recommend it. We had a lot of fun and learned a lot. And Veronica cooked for us another night, which was delightful as well. And the house was so relaxing and beautiful - the countryside, the flowers, the house itself - it is exquisite. And the soccer field - it's small but with five young boys, it was a perfect complement to city living in Rome - the kids relaxed and had a blast. My 4 year old is begging to go back for his birthday! Our only struggle was whether to try to keep this place a bit of a secret so that we can be sure to find our way there again! Thank you both for sharing your wonderful home with us. -Molly and the boys

Villa La Quercia is located in Impruneta, immersed in the splendid backdrop of the Chianti hills, in one of the most renowned areas of Tuscany.

It is also near a series of well-known tourist localities among which: Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca, and Pisa, Forte dei Marmi, Greve in Chianti, Colle Val d'Elsa and the craft area, Deruta (PG) and Perugia.

The property is only some 10 miles from Florence which makes it an extremely convenient base for explorations in the city and rural Tuscany and 1 mile from the Ugolino golf course.
