Villa Torricella is a lovely farmhouse located in the municipality of Impruneta, just a few kilometers from Florence. The villa is accessed via a short dirt-track road not suitable for low or sports cars. The outdoor spaces consist of a large farmyard, a dining area, a garden and an above-ground swimming-pool, recently built (2015).
The villa (230 sqm), elegantly furnished with some antiques, is set on 2 floors and can accommodate up to 8+2 people for a total of 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
Ground floor: Guests are welcomed in an airy entrance hall with fireplace, sofa and desk. Then there is a kitchen (equipped with oven, microwave and small refrigerator), a toilet and a dining room with large wooden table for 10 people. A bright living room (furnished with sofa, armchairs and flat TV) and a laundry (with washing machine and second refrigerator) make the rest of the floor.
First floor: The upper floor is dedicated to the sleeping area consisting of a master bedroom with double bed and chaise longe; a spacious antechamber with two single sofa beds and ensuite bathroom with shower. Moreover you will find two further double bedrooms and a twin bedroom (with separate beds). There are also three other bathrooms available on this floor: a toilet, a bathroom with shower and another with bathtub and shower.
Included free Wi-Fi Internet connection. Pets are allowed at extra cost.
This farmhouse offers an excellent quality/price ratio. In addition to Florence, the location is very close to the "Florence Impruneta" exit of the A1 motorway and to the entry of the Florence-Siena highway, so ideal for exploring the Chianti area and the Siena countryside. The only negative point is that unfortunately there is an ENEL electric plant placed in the valley below, visible from the villa, but far enough as not to have any harmful effects.
