Florence, with all of its arts treasures Is just 10 km away; after a long day spent visiting museums and monuments nothing compares to being able to relax, in the sheltering, cool shade of stone walls on a soft, comfortable, colourful sofa in the welcoming decor of traditional Tuscan-styled rooms.

Relais Villa L'Olmo lies in the famous Chianti countryside. It is only 10 km from Florence and the airport! It is also 5 km from the Motorway (A1) for Milan and Rome and teh speedway to Siena. The village of Impruneta is within a short walking distance! Public transport connects the Villa L'Olmo to Florence every 20 minutes. The apartment/suites and villas are part of a farm, where wine in the proper cellars and olive oil “extra vergine” in the proper presses are being produced even now, besides vegetables and fruits.

The whole property was built in 1500 as the summer residence of an important noble florentine family, named the "Davanzati".  The property came into the present owner's family in 1700. Restoring: In order to maintain the priginal atmosphere and the Imprunetian lifestyle, the restoration works of the apartment/suites and villas took over 3 years.  All the original structures as well as the character of the old rural aspects were preserved, not neglecting any of the modern services and comforts required by international guests through the third millennium.
