About the Property

5 bedrooms (4 double, 1 single), 4 en-suite bathrooms, sleeps 9

Villa La Quercia is a luxury dwelling place 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 art work can still 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 12 km (8 miles) from Florence.

In front of the main entrance to the house, there is a beautiful covered patio with dining table and a living area with bamboo furniture. On the backside, there is an open-air dining area with a round table in stone, situated in front of a swimming pool surrounded by laurel and cypress hedges.

Villa La Quercia is surrounded by 20 acres of land, which is partially cultivated with vines and olive trees. Extra Virgin Olive oil and Trebbiano and San Giovese wines are produced

On the ground floor, there is a dining room, a double living room with fireplace, a typical and fully equipped Tuscan kitchen, and a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with independent entrance.


On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom, and a closet room.

In the tower, there is a single bedroom with a twin size bed.

Next to the villa, there is a guest house with a queen size bed, and bathroom en suite, that can be rented separately at an additional cost, and only by the guests that 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.

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

-Morning or evening cooking class followed by lunch or dinner with the fruits of the labor

-Candle lit butler served dinner or lunch
-Daily breakfast

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)
