About the Property

6 bedrooms (5 double, 1 single), 5 en-suite bathrooms, sleeps 11

Villa La Quercia is a luxury home dating back to the 17th century, built entirely using ancient terracotta and stones. The villa was purchased in 1963 by the abstract painter Francesco Clemente, whose paintings can be admired inside the estate.

The villa is situated in Impruneta, just 1.5 km (half mile) from the center of the village, renowned for the terracotta production, on a hillock that dominates the Chianti hills, and only 12 km (8 miles) from Florence.

The location is ideal, as it is also very close to some of the most renowned Tuscan towns such as Siena (40 miles), San Gimignano (30 miles), Lucca (54 miles) and Pisa (57 miles).

Santa Maria Novella train station in Florence is 10 miles from the villa, Peretola airport is 17 miles, and the motorway is 5 miles.

In the village of Impruneta, that is also reachable on foot with a 20 min walk, you can find everything you need for grocery shopping; there is a supermarket, a market stall twice a week for fresh fruit and vegetable, a fish stall once a week, butcher shop, coffee shop, pastry shop, bakery, pharmacy, restaurants, and a bus service, that reaches Florence in 30 minutes.

Then, for the most active, Impruneta also boasts two tennis courts, a beautiful golf course, and a horse back riding club.

The paved road from the villa to the town is safe, and ideal to take walks or jogs in the early morning, or at sunset.

In front of the main entrance to the house, there is a beautiful loggia with dining table and wicker chairs, and a living area with bamboo furniture.

On the backside, there is the centenary oak tree (La Quercia in Italian) under which there is an open-air dining area with a round table in stone, situated in front of a salt-water private swimming pool surrounded by laurel and cypress hedges.

On the ground floor, there is a dining room with antique decorative clay ceiling tiles, a double living room with fireplace and an LCD flat screen, a typical and fully equipped Tuscan kitchen with a professional 5 burner gas cooktop, and a twin/queen bedroom with private entrance and en-suite bathroom with shower stall.

On the first floor, there are two twin/queen bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms with bath shower screen and wall mounted shower head, and a master bedroom with king size bed, dressing room and en-suite bathroom with tub and shower stall.

On the upper floor, there is a single bedroom with full size bed.

Next to the villa, there is a guest house with a king size bed, and bathroom en suite with shower stall.

This room is available if additional space is needed, it can be rented at an extra cost, and only by the guests who are already staying at the villa.

Including the guest house, the villa has a total of 6 bedrooms (5 double, 1 single), and 5 en-suite bathrooms, and it can therefore accommodate up to 11 guests.

Villa La Quercia is surrounded by 20 acres of land; we make white Trebbiano and red San Giovese wine, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil from our 600 olive trees.

We have our own chickens that lay fresh eggs daily, an organic garden where we grow zucchini, green beans, salads, tomatoes, cabbage, onions among other produce. There are peach, pomegranate, apricot and fig trees from which we make jams. We also have sage, rosemary, mint and basil grown on the property, which is skirted by old oak woods.

The loggia overlooks an antique stone patio with a water well that was once functioning, and an English rose garden of a variety of colors and of an incredible scent.

The view is breathtaking from all around the property.

The extensive grounds ensure privacy and plentiful options for rest and relaxation, and the on-premise hired staff is aimed to provide a high level of hospitality to all visiting guests.

Upon request, and at an additional cost, the following exclusive experiences and services are available:

-Morning or afternoon cooking class, followed by lunch or dinner with the fruits of the labor
-Market tour in Florence
-Dinner or lunch prepared by a Chef, with or without butler service
-Morning breakfast

Car: Recommended

Villa La Quercia is located 1.5 km (half mile) from the town of Impruneta, renowned for the terracotta production, and it is immersed in the splendid backdrop of the Chianti hills, in one of the most spectacular areas of Tuscany.

The property is surrounded by 20 acres of land, cultivated with vines and olive trees; Extra Virgin Olive oil and Trebbiano and San Giovese wines are produced.

It is also near a series of well-known localities among which: Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca, Pisa, Forte dei Marmi, Carrara, Greve in Chianti, Colle Val d'Elsa and the craft area of Deruta 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 Tuscany region, and 1 mile (2 km) from the Ugolino golf course.

 

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Impruneta, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy:
Villa La Quercia is located in Impruneta, a 20-minute ride from Florence. Perched on a hilltop, this 17th century villa colonica (country villa) was purchased in 1963 by the abstract painter Francesco Clemente. Over the years, his daughter Veronica, has restored it preserving the old characteristics and authenticity of this property, while modernizing certain aspects to adapt to a modern lifestyle. She has hired a staff, and is currently managing the estate with her daughter Margherita.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The villa is set on 20 acres of beautiful landscaping, olive groves and vineyards. Surrounded by the rolling hills, and very close to the most renowned Tuscan towns. Our farm provides the villa with fresh eggs, fresh produce, and the highest quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil and wines: white Trebbiano and red San Giovese.
