Why Simone Pierattoni chose Impruneta

It's few miles from downtown Florence, at the same time is in the middle of Florentine hills, in the most beautiful area of Chianti, and close to Impruneta town !

What makes this villa unique

The silence, the quiet of the Chianti region, and the possibility to reach Florence, museums and attractions are just behind you !

Guestbook comments from the manager

We rented the Villa for our ten-person family vacation. The facilities were beautiful, immaculate, beds very comfortable, plenty of hot water and water pressure. The views from every window were priceless. I'd rent again with no hesitation. Thank you, Paola, for a memorable holiday!

I want to thank you for your wonderful hospitality, you were so gracious and warm, everything was perfect. We so loved the villa, and the whole area, I already miss it terribly, and am already planning our next trip back.

Family trip of our lifetime

  • 5 of 5

The Villa in Impruneta allowed my family to enjoy the trip of a lifetime ! We shared the month of June there and made unforgettable lifetime memories ! The grounds and pool were perfect for our family , but especially for our four grandchildren ages 6 thru 9 years and 2 teenagers-. The spacious grounds were beautiful and enough room for children to run and play! And for adults to enjoy the marvelous scenery ! The villa property offered ample space for our entire group of 12 people - We rented the house and one cottage . We all had our own bedrooms and baths- a real luxury any where! We also enjoyed cooking in the kitchen- and loved the large game room area for meals, playing pool, and enjoying our time together.

The Villa had so much room that we never felt crowded or needed more space.

The views are amazing ! We lived

"Under the Tuscan Sun!"

It took our breath away every day- to be surrounded by grapevines and olive trees in the beautiful Tuscan hills !! Also - all of us enjoyed Impruneta close by - we shopped in the local grocery store , outdoor markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays, ate gelato , and frequented the local coffee and pastery shop! We had everything we needed there close by .

The little ones also loved going to play on the toys at the park next to the main piazza. Florence was about a 45 minute bus ride away to downtown - which was very comfortable- new buses and air- conditioned. We were here in the busy month of June so the bus ride varied and was affected by traffic going into the city. But we were always surrounded by amazing views of the Tuscan hillsides!

We also rented 2 cars for our large group to explore the area and shopping at the market. We did take advantage of having a driver and large van available to us. We loved our driver, Francesco! He was delightful and an expert on the area and Chianti region! We so enjoyed him taking groups of us to the beaches- day trips to Pisa and Lucca - also wine tours!

He became like a dear friend to all of us!

Also, Agnese ( the owners daughter) always took wonderful care of us at the Villa! If I had any questions she responded immediately and took care of our family"s needs - she was a sweetheart and did also speak fluent English!

After exploring Florence and Tuscany, we

had an unforgettable Italian countryside home to come to everyday! But we also loved our time just staying at this amazing Villa- Our family will always cherish our time there !

Villa Impruneta provided a vacation of a lifetime for 3 generations of our family (17 altogether). We loved the beautiful setting in the Tuscan hillside, the wonderful choices of bedrooms, the large swimming pool and the accessibility to Florence and other special places. The owners were delightful and helpful and even provided a cooking class one night for our family.
