Reviewed October 6, 2013

We spent 6 nights in this beautiful location. Quiet, surrounded by olive trees and the lovely smell of herbs, yet only 10 minutes walk from the village of Impruneta and about 30 minutes by bus from Florence. ideal if you wish to tour other parts of Tuscany by car. The apartments are well equipped and very clean. We found the staff very friendly and helpful.

Impruneta is a great base for touring - Florence, Siena, San Gimignano all within easy reach. The village itself has a couple of bars and several restaurants, and is less than 10 mins walk. We liked Bar Italia & La Loccatina. Villa L'Olmio is a lovely old building subdivided into apartments. Having space in addition to a bedroom was a nice change on a touring holiday, and the laundry was a bonus! The style is a bit quaint, but it's clean, comfy and so peaceful. The pool is lovely & we frequently had it to ourselves. Staff were helpful but unobtrusive. All in all a really relaxing stay.

We have just returned from a week at Relais and will definitely return . The friendly and informative welcome from Laura and Eleonora set the tone for a really relaxing week .We took the air conditioned bus into Florence ( a minute away from the apartment) with spectacular views en route(don't drive !) . Impruneta is not touristy with one great Bar Italia which is a great people watch for morning coffee or a pre dinner drink . Loggietana was our favourite restaurant on the main square . A great value , typical Tuscan Trattoria.

We barbequed a couple of nights at Relais looking over the beautiful valley with Florence in the distance having got our provisions at the fantastic local CO-OP - don't think English CO-OP's this is totally different and much better !

Our Relais apartment was spacious and comfortable for a family of 4 and the private terrace made a great difference ( few apartments have one ) and there was a lovely pool

A totally unpretentious place , but a relaxing and beautiful setting ,combined with an authentic Tuscan town experience creates a great holiday with no need to hire a car

Room Tip: book an apartment with a private terrace overlooking the valley

We just spent five days in this wonderful place in the heart of Tuscany. The apartments were spacious and the views fantastic! Laura was very helpful in planning before we arrived and just as helpful when we got there. The location is perfect- we traveled to Florence, Sienna, Chianti, San Gigiamono and even Cinque Terre! Villa L'Olmo is just a special place. It is also walking distance to Impruneta, a small Tuscan Village. There is a bus that can take to Florence that is a minute walk down the road.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the olive groves

i just spent a wonderful week at this most beautiful spot in Impruneata. It was a perfect place to unwind and relax after a few hectic days in Rome. The location was perfect for taking side trips to Florence, Pisa, Sienna and many more. The town was great with many delicious restaurants that you could walk to and walk home from after enjoying some Chianti. The grocery store was amazing I wanted to buy everything to take home with me. I can hardly wait to return and I have raved about and recommended this place to many friends. You won't be disappointed if you go!!

What can I say. With a price of £170 per night supposedly discounted rate I expected so much more. The apartment was nice but breakfast was extra. They seem to price based on location. I paid double what Russian guests paid despite my price being a lastminute secret deal and no breakfast. The good. Nice town, nice pool and friendly and helpful staff. The bad. The price for what we got. The ugly. Our bodies post mosquito feeding time.

wonderful place in the heart of Tuscany. Fresh air, beautiful views, lots of greenery and a very friendly staff will make your stay unforgettable. keep the windows closed, many mosquitoes.
You can buy food at the local supermarket and cook dinner or breakfast, great to sit on the veranda in the l evenings and watch the sunset with a glass of Chianti.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Relax in the Chianti - Just 15 minutes from Florence Situated on the outskirts of a quaint village by the name of Impruneta, the Relais Villa l'Olmo is perched on a hill dotted with grey olive trees, overlooking the Chianti valley. Lying a mere 10 kilometres from the city of Florence and 20-minute drive from its airport, a 10-minute drive from the main road to Siena and from the A1 motorway linking Milan to Rome, this is the ideal location for relaxing in the Tuscan countryside without forfeiting the chaotic bustle of Florence. While the city can be reached by public transportation every 30 minutes, the village centre is a 5-minute stroll from the Relais, where the Tuscan culinary delicacies can be savoured in typical trattorias. Nestled in a 70-hectar landscape of rolling hills, the 16th-century Relais mirrors the careful renovation completed in 2001, work that was painstakingly undertaken to preserve the original architectural structure. In addition to the 8 apartments, 2 cottages and farmhouse available for guests, the property encompasses vineyards, olive groves, the owners' private residence and an operating farm. The big pool area is surrounded by white sand that combines with the green valley and its olive trees and vineyards offering a beautiful view on the valley. In the gardens and Barbecue gardens the Relais Guests will enjoy their evenings under the Tuscan sky whilst preparing the specialties of the region.The Relais offers also a Fitness-room well equipped with Technogym fitness equipment and massages or sessions with a personal trainer can be booked anytime on request of the guests. Breakfast can be booked on request and it's served in an ancient charming Farm Loggia. The village, at just 3 minutes walking distance, make the shopping and alimentary needs an experience and guests should not miss to explore the small and traditional shops. The Reception is available every day from 8.30Am to 7.30Pm for any information and bookings that make the guests' stay as pleasant as possible (museums' entrance tickets, tours and wine-tastings reservations, tee-times bookings, babysitting service). ... more   less
