Located at Impruneta, a small town at the edge of Chianti, Villa Saladini is a beautiful old Tuscan Villa surrounded by the gentle Chianti Hills. The 6 hectare estate, owned and managed by the Morici family for over centuries, is located less than 1 km from the town’s main square and only 12 km from the center of Florence. The bus to Florence stops just in front of entrance gate. Buses lead to Florence train station Santa Maria Novella (SMN), passing through the “Oltrarno” area (Palazzo Pitti, Borgo San Frediano, Ponte Vecchio, etc.). There is a ride, in average, every 30 minutes and last bus ride in the evening arrives in Impruneta at 8.50 p.m. Staying at Villa Saladini is like a blast from the past: it is a place where time has stopped. From the entrance to the small chapel, everything has remained as it was centuries ago, but at the same time there are modern facilities such as Wi-Fi also in the garden. Located on the top of the hill, the Villa, originally built by the local landlord to be used as a fortress against enemies, has a spacious view on surrounding hills. Due to its location (300 meters above sea level), it has a very comfortable climate, cool even in the hottest summers. Guests will have full access to the large sunny lawn with panoramic views, to the shady and fresh garden with pines and orchads, to the whole park and olive groves. The property is surrounded by woods and has ample parking space. Inside the family property, at the foot of the hill, there also is a small water source, from which flows an excellent drinkable water.
