Located in Impruneta, in the Florentine Chianti, the Eleonora Apartment is a spacious studio set in an authentic manor house, Villa Saladini, with 500 years of history, an incredible testimony of life in Tuscany at the dawn of the Renaissance.
The interior of the Villa, the magnificent living room with a stone fireplace and the small chapel with the family tombs, as well as the other rooms furnished with a rich collection of antiques, can be visited free of charge on request.
The property is surrounded by a large park with lawns and shady areas under the pines and secular cedars, beyond which there are hectares of olive groves.
Free WiFi and private parking.
Despite being surrounded by greenery, the Villa is located less than 1km from the town center, shops, restaurants and all kinds of amenities.
There is also a convenient bus line that connects the town directly with the center of Florence. There is a bus stop right outside the entrance gate.
The car is therefore not necessary to visit Florence, while it is recommended if you want to explore the countryside and the small villages of Chianti.
If you come by car, the Villa is located a few kilometers from the main roads and is in a perfect position to explore Tuscany.
We are located just 7 km from the "Firenze - Impruneta" exit of the A1 motorway and from the beginning of the highway that connects Florence with Siena.
From here you can easily reach all the places of cultural interest and the most beautiful places in Tuscany
