Alberto and Claudia Giannotti have turned a former 16th-century country villa into an elegantly comfortable agriturismo 20 minutes south of the center of Florence. If you're looking for a country experience, but crave easy access to the city, this place outside the small town of Impruneta does the trick. Many of the apartments look out over a gently terraced field of olive trees. (The estate produces top-notch olive oil, as well as some respectable wine.) The cheerful
apartments are suitable for couples; some are adjoining. Unlike many agriturismi, there's no minimum stay during high season here.
