Luxury 17th century renovated Tuscan villa in Chianti with private swimming pool. Only 8 miles from Florence with stunning countryside views. Surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. Ideal for families or friends seeking relaxation
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.
Next to the villa, there is a guest house with a queen 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 5 double bedrooms, and 5 en-suite bathrooms, and it can therefore accommodate up to 10 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.
