Location description from owner

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

Impruneta

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.

“Comfort and Italy Spirit”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2012

Villa Saladini is a beautiful, quite place with big beautiful park. It is situated 12 km away from center of Florence and one km from center of Impruneta. Hosts are very helpful and kind. They also have some extra meals in their offer, which we strongly recommend. Apartment met all our expectations.
