Impruneta in Tuscany
A charming municipality in Tuscany
Tuscan cypresses, as far as the eye can see, the chirping of the crickets when the sun goes down, and, ah, the good wine! The flair with the incredibly hospitable Italians and the great food – we are immediately gripped by a longing for Italy, more precisely: for Impruneta!
Italy is really always worth a trip and we are very happy that traveling gradually becomes possible again. Last year, a production brought us to Impruneta, a small town in Tuscany we don’t want to withhold from you.
Impruneta is a beautiful place in the northern part of Tuscany, which is known beyond the country’s borders for handmade regional terracotta. The municipality with just under 15,000 inhabitants is located approximately one hour’s drive south of Florence and is therefore the perfect place to be close to a city and, at the same time, enjoy the calm and the landscape of Tuscany.
You easily get to Florence and the surrounding area by bus. Nevertheless, a car is an advantage if you want to discover more of the great landscape and maybe stay in an Italian restaurant in the area.
Countless wineries, small winding alleys and a breath-taking landscape are only three aspects that characterise Impruneta. If you want to enjoy the landscape and the Mediterranean climate with several people, you should spend the night at »Casa di Thea«. The beautiful house enchants with its Italian flair. It’s located on a small hill in the middle of the Chianti countryside, surrounded by olive trees and grapevines, and invites you to linger and to switch off. It has four big rooms, a huge garden with a beautiful view and is therefore also perfect for coming here with the whole family or friends. The owners from Florence spend their weekends in the adjoining house and captivate with their open nature and their hospitality. On top, you get some free insider tips!
In the near vicinity, there are numerous restaurants that celebrate the Italian cuisine in all its forms. If you love risotto and pasta (just to name a small selection), you will be floating on cloud nine here and rave about the good food for a long time.
If you’ve got the travel bug now, you should get your suitcases from the basement and plan a trip to Impruneta!
