An oasis in the green Tuscan countryside. On a hill that dominates over a valley, among vineyards and olive groves, Relais offers cozy private villas, apartments in buildings made with stone and the famous Impruneta traditional terracotta, and a traditional farmhouse with rooms furnished in the best decor and most modern services. A pool with a bright white beach. From the edge of the pool, immersed in the peace and quiet of the Tuscan countryside, you will lose yourself in the captivating views of fertile olive groves and the gentle curves of the Chianti hills. 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, colorful sofa in the welcoming decor of traditional Tuscan-styled rooms. The Reception is available every day from 8.30am to 7.30pm for any reservation or information. For late arrivals (after the Reception closing time) please contact hotel directly at +39 055 2311311. From the central train station of Santa Maria Novella in Florence, there is a direct bus to Impruneta that stops very close to Relais. The bus departure terminal (Cap) is on the left hand side of the train station if you stand with your back to the tracks. It takes about half hour to reach Impruneta and buses run frequently, about every 30 minutes. (Please remember that the last bus from Florence to Impruneta runs at 8.30 pm).

Perfect home base for Tuscany and Florence

You'd never know that 12km (45 min bus ride away is the bustle of Firenze. Located on the edge of Impruneta, Villa L'Olmo overlooks a beautiful valley with mountains in the distance. Getting to Firenze was a breeze, as Elenora offers bus tickets for sale in the office and the bus stop is only a few meters from the entrance to the property. Siena, Pisa, Montalcino, Volterra, and many other Tuscan destinations are less than 2 hours away by the backroads - turn off highways on the navigation and enjoy the drive. We chose a Panoramic 2BR apartment. The living space was a bit smaller than you would expect from the pictures, but it was fine for 3 of us. Bedrooms were good-sized. Overall, as good or better than many euro apartments space-wise. Had it not been November, we would have made excellent use of the table and comfy chairs on our patio to enjoy the view to the max. As it was, we settled for staying indoors and enjoying it from the living room. The beds were very comfortable, possibly better than home, with cozy duvets and good pillows. We were supplied with plenty of bath towels huge bath sheets!. The bath was clean and hot water plentiful. Other amenities like shampoos, soaps, were basic, not the 'designer' types found in some properties but served the purpose. The kitchen was well stocked and clean, though a few basics like salt, pepper, sugar, and olive oil would have been a nice addition. None of this was really an issue because there is a nice supermarket about 5 minutes away in the town. we were able to buy what we needed for meals at the end of a busy day there...excellent roasted chicken BTW The breakfast room was gorgeous with a roaring fire going most mornings. The Continental Breakfast #at 7eur each was a good deal - prosciutto, salami, cheese, fresh pastries, juice, and more - also good cappuccino or espresso. Wine and olive oil produced on the property are available at reasonable prices. We kept a bottle of the mid-grade red wine on hand at all times. If you are looking for a good experience, with no unpleasant surprises, Villa l'Olmo is a safe bet and a really good value. We would definitely make this choice again.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

The local grocery has a nice selection of prepared foods and breads to make for inexpensive 'no work' meals that are as good as many restaurants.

beautiful

This is based on my travel by bus only. The staff at Relais Villa L'Olmo were very friendly. Office hours are 08:30am - 19:30 keeping that in mind, if you stay there and know you need to take the bus early the next day, make sure you purchase your bus ticket the day before. The travel time from the main train station to the hotel is about 30 min., the bus stop to the hotel is within walking distance. When you arrive to Florence by train, the Cap bus is across the street from main train station. Before traveling by bus make sure there are no bus strikes, something I experienced while there. The cap bus (#5) is the only bus that goes to the hotel, so if there is a bus strike find out what time the strike is over and wait for the next bus or take a taxi that will be about 30-50 Euros. I waited for the next bus (the bus strike was from 09:00-12:00). If the hotel is aware of the strike, they can provide a driver but they need to be aware of the strike prior to so they can notify the driver (don't know if that was an additional charge). Also keep in mind the last Cap bus is 20:20 so make your plans accordingly. The town of Impruneta is small, it has a church and some local restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. Aside from my travel time by bus, the hotel has a beautiful view of the landscape, the room was clean, the grounds were clean, and I felt safe. The staff can provide information of tours and they can make arrangement for you to be picked up at the hotel or if you choose, go to meeting place by Cap bus that is usually in Florence. I would love to go back during the summer time to enjoy the pool. The only reason why I'm giving amenities average start is because I did not use the laundry or gym facilities. I know the hotel offers massages but I did not use this service. Overall, I had a great experience. Aside from the small glitch with the bus strike, transportation by bus was not bad at all.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Wear comfortable shoes! and don't wear the same shoes the next day to help with the swelling/tired feet.. The streets in Florence are cobble stone and uneven. Buy your bus tickets in the office, it's a little cheaper.

Soooo pleased with what we got

I can't tell you how grateful we were to arrive to one of the most beautiful wineries ever. The staff was very sweet and the room a dream. A definite high light in our long trip around Italy. This is one place I will come back to for a destination.
