Located in Impruneta, at the edge of Chianti, Apartment Saladino is a comfortable 70 sqm apartment consisting of:

• Bedroom with double bed,

• Bathroom with shower,

• Living room with sofa bed and kitchen.

Old terracotta floors and high beamed ceilings.

All furniture and paintings on the walls are antique and belong to our family collection.

Walls are thicker than 50 cm, as it was use in this kind of old building to ensure cool even in the hottest summers.

Apartment Saladino is located on the ground floor of our family Villa, a 16th century Villa surrounded by a beautiful park and by olive groves. In the garden you will find table and chairs and deck chairs to relax in the green.

The Villa is located less than 1 km from the town's main square and there is a bus stop for the nearby city of Florence (12 Km) in front of entrance gate.

Buses pass by in average every 30 minutes and last bus ride in the evening arrives in Impruneta at 8.50 p.m. Buses rides are perfect to go to Florence during the day and come back in the evening and we will give you all timetables.

If you come by car, our place is perfect as a starting base for visiting Tuscany.

We are located just 6 km from the exit “Firenze-Impruneta" (formerly "Firenze - Certosa") of the A1 motorway and from the beginning of the road which connects Florence to Siena. From here you can then easily reach all places of cultural interest and the most beautiful areas of Tuscany, such as:

• Siena: 60 km 1 hour

• Pisa: 100 km 1 hour 30 minutes

• Lucca: 90 km 1 hour

• Pistoia : 50 km 45 minutes

• Arezzo : 80 km 1 hour

and also San Casciano Val di Pesa (12 km), Greve in Chianti (15 km), Certaldo (36 km), Colle Val d'Elsa (40 km), San Gimignano (45 km), and the renowned spa town of Montecatini Terme (60 km)

Let us introduce ourselves to you:

We are Perla and Marco. We are married and we live inside the Villa with our two children, Bernardo and Beatrice.

The Villa belongs to our family for many generations, ever since it was built over 500 years ago.

We love this place!

We do our best to make our guests feel as if they were at home.

On arrival we will welcome you with Florence and Chianti maps, tourist info including museum opening hours, events of the month, guides, buses timetable, etc., home made pastries and a bottle of our production extra-virgin olive oil.

We will also go shopping for you, if you like, so that everything you need is already inside the apartment on arrival.

We can reserve for you museum entrance or personalised guided Florence tours with a professional guide.

On request we can serve you a wine tasting and provide you a good Chianti wine.

If needed we also offer a shuttle service to/from airport/train station. The cost is € 25 for the station and € 35 for the airport.

Finally, if you do not like to cook and you do not want to move to go to a restaurant, we will prepare for you a good home made dinner starting from € 15 per person.

For whom who loves cooking, we have an agreement with a cooking school and we can reserve for you a private cooking lesson taught onsite by an really good (trust me, you will be impressed!) professional chef.

At the end of it, you will eat what you have just cooked! (advanced reservation required)

Villa Saladini is therefore the ideal place to relax surrounded by a beautiful environment but also an excellent base for visiting Florence, the beautiful countryside of Chianti and the most beautiful towns in Tuscany .

You will love it!

The Tuscany region

Tuscany (ital. Toscana) is bordered on the west by the long sandy beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is sheltered to the north and east by the Apennine Mountains and the Apuan Alps. The region thus defined is one of great fertility, with the wines of the Chianti region and the superb olive oil of the area known to anyone who appreciates good food and wine.

The landscapes of Tuscany are perhaps more varied than in any other region of Italy, varying from the ancient marble quarries of the Apuan Alps to the sand dunes of the Tyrrhenian Coast, but it is the land between, in particular the Chianti district, that most readily comes to mind when we talk of Tuscany.

Hilltop towns and villages dating back to Etruscan times are surrounded by vineyards where the vines form geometrically precise rows, olive groves alternate with undulating fields of wheat and sunflowers, slashed in spring by the vibrant red of poppies, and over all a sky of ineffable blue - this is a landscape that has changed very little since the Middle Ages.

No wonder that Tuscany today is so beloved of visitors who come for the exquisitely balanced attractions of culture and relaxation, great food and wine and scenery of entrancing beauty.

An essential feature of the landscapes of Tuscany, and of northern Italy in general, is the tall, slender spire of the Cypress tree. Yet this tree is not Italian in origin. It was brought to the region by the Etruscans, from Persia and Syria.

The fact that it did not drop its foliage in winter gave it mythical and supernatural powers in their minds, and they used to plant it around their burial places - something which can still be seen throughout Italy and Greece, where the cypress tree is always to be found growing around churches and cemeteries.

Legend has it that if you fall asleep underneath a cypress, your soul will be stolen and you will never re-awaken....

Italy now has more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country in the world. In Tuscany there are:

- The Historic Centre of Florence

- The Leaning Tower of Pisa and buildings of the Piazza del Duomo

- The Historic Centre of Siena

- The Historic Centre of Pienza

- The Historic Centre of San Gimignano

- The Val d'Orcia


The town of Impruneta is located a few kilometres from Florence in the hearth of Tuscany. Famous for its terracotta industry, Impruneta will be a stop to visit the famous Chianti and Tuscany countryside.

It was known in ancient times as "in prunetis" or "in pineta" (within the pine woods) and indeed remnants of beautiful pine forests may still be seen interspersed among the olive groves on some of the surrounding hills. During the mediaeval period, Impruneta and the surrounding villages were part of the fiefdom of the Buondelmonti family whose castle was in the village of Montebuoni.

The Church of Santa Maria at Impruneta became ever more well-known for the sacred and miraculous effigy of the Madonna housed there. Pilgrims came in large numbers and a famous fair took place and still takes place on the feast of Saint Luke, 18 October. Originally a feast associated with the movement and sale of livestock, it is now celebrated with stalls, dinners and horse races.

A small village important for the production of pottery had developed near the church. The first record of terracotta manufacture dates from 1098 and the production of terracotta tiles, pottery and bricks has continued to flourish to the present time. The church and its treasure, and the pottery kilns and their output are the principal reasons to visit Impruneta.

However, there are many other interesting sights in Impruneta and nearby, and throughout the year there are festivals and cultural activities that make the short journey from Florence worthwhile. And if you are interested in castles, Chianti is full of them and they are described in the itineraries of the Chianti Castles route.

"Great appartment, great host"

We spent 9 wonderful days in Villa Saladini, which is located in a beautiful environment full of olive trees. The appartment was freshly renovated, so that all the equipment was brand new. Perla is a very nice host, who does all to fulfill the guests needs. The bus connection to Florence is excellent.

"Comfortable apartment in traditional villa"

A spacious and nicely furnished apartment with very reasonable kitchen area. Comfortable bedroom with modern shower room but only sufficient hot water for two showers one after the other. Plenty of both sunny and shady areas in the garden, table and chairs provided. A washing machine would have been useful, although there are two self-service launderettes in Impruneta. The villa owners are very charming and helpful, Mrs Pedani speaks good english.
