Fully converted Tuscan farmhouse in three acres of olive trees. 15 minutes' drive to Florence (Porta Romana). Direct bus service into Florence. 10 minutes' drive to Impruneta for shops, restaurants, supermarket. Free wifi internet access. The house has been in our family for nearly 40 years and is brilliantly positioned for visiting Florence then getting away from the crowds for a relaxing break. Easy public transport for Florence makes this an ideal base for families with teenagers or friends who want some independence and don't need a car. Perfect for visiting all historic Tuscan towns including Florence, Siena, Arezzo and San Gimignano. The nearest town, Impruneta (4km), is famous for its terracotta factories and showrooms and the 'Festa dell'uva', a grape festival held on the last Sunday in September.

About Nicolette Le Pelley
I am English and live in London but was brought up in Italy and lived there until I was 16 when we moved back to England. I went to school in the local town, Impruneta, and then to a Liceo in Florence. I've been back to Italy every summer since then, with my husband, three children and dog !
Why Nicolette Le Pelley chose Impruneta
My parents bought and converted this farmhouse in 1972. It's brilliantly positioned for visiting Florence (and on a direct bus route from the end of our road) yet in a lovely peaceful spot.

Lovely property with plenty of space, great kitchen, excellent location and beautiful seating for the pool. Nicolette was a pleasure to liaise with and we would definitely book again.
A great property in a wonderful location. Amazing views across the countryside and only a short trip into Florence.
The property had plenty of character, was clean and well equipped with reliable wifi. Enjoyed sitting outside in the evening to eat, relaxing by the pool and the table tennis was a bonus.
