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)

Car: Recommended

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 of Deruta (PG) and Perugia.

The property is only some 8 miles (12 km) from Florence which makes it an extremely convenient base for explorations in the city and rural Tuscany and 1 mile (2 km) from the Ugolino golf course.
