“Charm in a rural garden”

An apartment full of charachter in an old Tuscan villa set in a garden and olive groves above the town of Impruneta.

We were looking for a property for a week's rental near to Florence that could be accessed by public transport and this one definately fitted the bill. The owner arranged to collect us from Florence station and she returned us to the bus station in Impruneta town. This was excellent as although the local buses did mostly stop outside the property the long walk up the drive to the house would have been troublesome if you had a case - we use travel rucsacs so it wouldn't have bothered us. The owner had excellent English and was extremely helpful when we were booking, in transfer arrangements and in general advice when we sought it.

The appartment is perfect for two people or perhaps a couple and two children but with the only toilet being en suite to the main bedroom it may not be suitable for other group arrangements. The main bed was extremely comfortable and the apartment was adequately equipped. We didnt try out the bed settee in he livingroom/dining room/ kitchen as a bed.

It was extremely hot when we were there but the ancient construction of high celings, thick walls and narrow shuttered windows kept the rooms acceptably cool.

Local buses gave good access to Florence and the rail network gave us easy connections to Pisa, Siena and Lucca. Impruneta has adequate shops but we eat out mostly and did little cooking in the apartment although the facilities were adequate for cooking simple meals and the diswasher was a bonus!

The owner offered an excellent value service of cooking a four course evening meal if required. We had this on our first night and it was beautiful food plus a good wine at a very reasonable price.

A great location to chill out and gently visit the main sights of Tuscany for a week.

“Great home base while exploring Florence and Tuscany.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed at the villa for ten days in early July. Marco and Perla were gracious hosts. The apartment was in a traditional 16th century villa that had been updated without taking away from the charm. The apartment was very roomy for a couple. The bathroom was thoroughly modernized, the kitchen/livingroom/dinning area was spacious. High ceilings, Tuscan beams and giant windows and doors. Local bus connections allowed access to central Florence in about 35 minutes. We want to return!

Liked best: peaceful location
Liked least: Better with a car, although only about 10 mins walk from Impruneta centre. There are some buses daily to Florence from the end of the villa drive but more from Impruneta centre. No buses back from Florence after about 2000.

The small appartment in beautiful Impruneta, in the heart of the Chianti area, had self catering equipment, lot of space to sleep 4 people and a huge garden. Very near to the mail road, and at the sametime away from any noise. Well connected to Florence by the CAP bus infront of the gate, a 45 minutes scenic trip. Easy access to the A1 Autostrada for Pisa, Bologna, and Northern Italy and to Valdarno, Arezzo and Roma to the south. The owners are very friendly and speak English, even the neighbours in the Villa are very nice English speaking family and always happy to answer any queries and offer recommendations.
