Tuscan Villa near Florence- dating from the fifteenth century, this is a very elegant villa set on a large wine estate just south of Florence (only fifteen minutes from the city) offering a high standard of service and accommodation. For enthusiasts of good wine and luxury accommodation and who like to be in close proximity to one of Italy' s art cities, this property is ideal!

Known predominantly for its wine (production is around 22,000 bottles a year), the estate also produces grappa and high grade olive oil. Clients are naturally invited to a tasting during their stay and a tour of the cellars. The villa itself is built over three floors and is spacious (about 900 m) and very stylishly furnished throughout. The grounds are planted with oak, olive and cypress trees, whilst there is also a large fig tree on the terrace that affords shade when dining outside. The swimming pool is in a private corner of the grounds located amongst olive trees; a shady refuge in which to relax.

Nearby Florence is easily accessible, however in order to avoid the challenge of finding parking in the city, there is a bus route that runs from near the entrance of the estate to the city centre. Florence is one of Italy' s major centres of renaissance art and is a great city for walking and enjoying the sights, perhaps with a little designer shopping before relaxing in one of its many trattorie or restaurants. Impruneta is the closest village to the estate, just 1 mile away and has a variety of shops and restaurants.

“ If location and comfort are your top priorities you will definitely appreciate everything this villa has to offer. Just outside the historic town of Impruneta in the beautiful Chianti region, and close enough to Florence to visit as frequently as you wish, you are in right the heart of Tuscany here. There are plenty of good restaurants to choose from in the area. A daily breakfast service and welcome dinner at the villa, a wine tour, lovely gardens, a large pool and air conditioning in most of the bedrooms all contribute to making your stay at elegant Sorrettole a very relaxing experience. ”

  • We have enjoyed the space enormously

    We have enjoyed the space enormously, the heat and history. Highlights for me have included: sitting as the late afternoon turns to dusk and the sun vanishes behind the hills, surrounded by family, drinking italian wine and eating fabulous food. floating on a lilo in the pool in the full afternoon sun. looking up at the golden yeallow house through the deep green leaves of the oak tree at the blue summer sky. having a concert around the grand piano. a wonderful tour of the vineyards, olive trees, wine production area.breakfast laid in the dining room,children playing in the pool.

  • Big wow factor
