Impruneta Estate, a typical 16th century Tuscan country house, is situated in a panoramic position on top of a hill embedded in olive grooves. During its recent renovation great importance was given to retain the original style and structures in its form and size. The property is located a few kilometers from Florence and is near a charming village, Impruneta, from which it got its name.
