Beautiful farmhouse in the Chianti hills near Florence, Tuscany



Updated: 16-Aug-2016
Farmhouse near Florence, Tuscany, Italy - Peaceful farmhouse with pool, set in olive groves 15 Minutes From Florence

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 the Owner

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, now with my husband, three children and dog !

Great property

  • 5 of 5

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.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Florence at 18 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Impruneta at 4 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Viareggio at 107 Kilometres Car: recommended


The traditional seaside town of Viareggio is about an hour and a half away by car (107km)


Nearest airport is Florence (18km); Pisa airport (90 km).

Nearest train station is Santa Maria Novella in Florence (14km)

Closest motorway junction (5km)

A car is useful but not essential as we have a bus stop at the end of our road with a frequent service into Florence (25 minutes) or into Impruneta (10 minutes).


There are restaurants, bars, shops, supermarket, tourist information in the nearby town of Impruneta (4km). Florence (Porta Romana) is a 15 minute drive away (8km). You can park there (just within the city walls) and walk or take a city bus into the very centre.
