Casa dell’Arte is a beautiful, classically styled Tuscan villa in Impruneta with close proximity to central Florence. The 4-bedroom villa is exquisitely maintained by a friendly mother-daughter team who spend their days working with culinary students at their cooking school, located on the property. They feature local and traditional Tuscan dishes; at your option, you can join them for a local market stroll and day of cooking under their tutelage (imagine the meals you will experience during your stay). This classic farmhouse is nestled in the Tuscan hills, is situated a short stroll from the quaint town of Impruneta, and is located only 20 minutes from Florence – providing you the best of Tuscany’s worlds. The home has been elegantly and comfortably renovated with everyday amenities, and the landscape is maintained nicely to reflect the Tuscan countryside.
The home’s front porch invites relaxation and serenity; an ideal place to have your morning coffee and biscotti. The walls of this villa are adorned with original artwork by the owner’s father, highlighted throughout the white-washed living room that centers itself around a gorgeous fireplace. This room is perfect for an afternoon repose as it is filled with books, open space and oversized sofas. Just off the well-equipped kitchen is a quiet staircase that leads you to the lower level where you will find a secluded, intimate bedroom with an en suite bathroom.
First Floor Level:
The first floor of the house has three expansive bedrooms all with sweeping views of the vineyard and olive grove hills surrounding the hillside. All bedrooms have their own bathrooms that have been recently renovated.
If you blink, you might miss this sweet little lounge room. It has a window with a beautiful view.
Much attention has been paid to everything this farmhouse offers, but the exterior is the most magnificent aspect of Casa dell’Arte. At the entrance to the house, there is a covered patio filled with cozy chairs and a casual dining table – making it the ideal setting for relaxing with a good book, stealing an afternoon nap or sitting quietly within the peaceful surrounding of this secluded gem. The pool located around the back of the house is gorgeous. It is accessed by ascending a stone terrace with lovely statues and an outdoor dining area. Across the property, there are endless nooks and crannies where one can retreat with a good book or camera or laptop and lose yourself in the beautiful scenery.

Impruneta is a little village just on the outskirts of Florence, primarily known for its terracotta pottery made from local clay. Farmer’s markets share the main town square with an Etruscan church that dates back to 1060. Standing in contrast to the historical features of this town are the boutiques and store-fronts filled with custom clothing and leather products. Within walking distance from Casa dell’Arte are a number of quaint trattorias as well as upscale dining options. Impruneta is a gem of a town cradled into the Tuscan countryside. If you like access to Florence, but value a beautifully appointed classic villa nestled into a quaint Tuscan town, Casa dell’Arte may be the ideal home for your vacation.
