Guest Book

'Dear Veronica and Margarita, I had such an amazing stay at Villa La Quercia! I think it is a real paradise, right here in the very middle of this beautiful country. 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'

- Mr D. Tiburon, California USA (Aug 11th 2012)

'Veronica, thank you for everything...for sharing your home with us, for showing us a part of your life, and for welcoming us as you would long-time friends - family. We loved our visit and look forward to returning'

- Mrs L. Parillo, California USA (June 30th 2012)

'Veronica, it is difficult to leave Villa La Quercia and all the gifts of Italia. Nights filled with birdsong, jasmine and lavender coupled with laughter and amazing food beckon one to stay. Your home and the grounds are so serene and magical. Every detail is imprinted in my memories of Italy. Coming back a second time...Only reinforces a desire to return. Until we meet again ~ Thank you for sharing your 'gift' La Quercia'

- Mrs M. Saltmarsh, Florida USA (June 2012)

'Dear Veronica, once again the glories of Tuscany have cooked their magic on our guests, and once again sharing wine & laughter with friends in your magnificent home has given each of us indelible memories to be forever cherished. Until our next visit to Italy... Much affection & gratitude'

- Mr M. McKenny, Florida USA (June 2012)

'Dear Veronica, as last year we have enjoyed our stay at Villa La Quercia very much. With its ideal location close to Florence, in beautiful surroundings, together with your hospitality, has made our vacation more than a success! We look forward already to be back, do some running in the morning, relax with a coffee in Impruneta, do some swimming in the pool and enjoy the culture of many historical villages in the area. We hope to meet again, possible next year. Best regards' - Mrs B. Vidra-Krul, Holland (August 21st 2009)

My wife and I visited Italy mid-August 2013...it was a truly amazing trip! We wanted to stay close to Florence but also enjoy the Tuscan countryside we had heard so much about...That's when we came across La Quercia in our search for a Private villa... La Quercia is Spectacular!...La Quercia is located just outsid e the center of a small Italian town called Impruneta famous for it's Terra-cotta. The property is amazing. We would walk through the vineyards and olive groves, and just take in the incredible landscape and tranquility surrounding us. We would often just sit outside on the terrace enjoying the Tuscan air. We ate plenty of our meals outside on the terrace. The private pool was great to come home to after a long day of exploring Italy. It was both refreshing and relaxing after a long fun-filled day. If you decide you don't want to rent a car(we did not rent a car), there is a bus stop within walking distance to the main plaza in Impruneta. It's about 1\2 mile(1\3km) walk that wasn't bad at all...and we were all not in the best physical shape..ha ha. The bus can easily take you into Florence in about 25 minutes!
What really made our stay as great as it was, was the hospitality provided by the owner Veronica and her daughter, Marguerite...they were the best hostesses we've ever encountered during our travels...and we travel a lot. They are willing to help in any way and are sure to allow you your privacy. We highly recommend you don't pass up the opportunity to have a butlered served dinner cooked by Veronica right at the villa. She's an amazing cook! We enjoyed our first meal in Italy sitting under the tuscan stars enjoying a four course meal (that incuded a bottle of the estate's own Chianti) served by a butler. It was truly one of the best meals we've ever had! And speaking of cooking...you can't pass up Veronica's cooking class either. Veronica offers cooking classes in her cooking studio that is on the property as well. She'll meet with you beforehand to pick out a menu. On our last night at La Quercia, we took a cooking class withVeronica and she had us prepare our own 4 course dinner that we had chosen with her, including making our own pasta from scratch...the end result was mouth watering... We highly recommend La Quercia and we can't wait to go back...Thanks Veronica and Marguerite for a fantastic holiday! We have never encountered such warm and generous hosts. We hope to see you both again real soon! :-) -Eric

A Taste Of Tuscany: One week in paradise

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 05-Jul-2013

Two families of four, including four college aged children, enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing vacation in this 17th century renovated villa in the heart of Tuscany. Everything from the location to the beautiful and spacious accommodations to the peace and quiet of living in your own Italian villa with an outdoor pool, created an ambience of ease and comfort throughout the seven days we stayed here. The most enjoyable part of the trip was venturing into Florence, San Gimignano, Siena, and a wine tasting excursion, and coming back to a clean and fun atmosphere. This is a place that everyone can enjoy from adults to teenagers to children (our soccer fanatic teens really enjoyed the soccer field located below the winefields in the backyard with a spectacular view!). We highly recommend this for anyone of any age looking for a relaxing, exciting, and truly authentic taste of Italy.

Villa La Quercia is comfortable and charming. We loved the private pool. We enjoyed having coffee on the patio in the morning and gathering around the kitchen table at night to discuss the day's events. We felt the location, close to Florence, provided easy access to the hill towns of central Italy. Veronica was an excellent host, even baking us goodies and taking us on the best wine tasting I've ever had. Given the opportunity, we would definitely return.

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.
