The B&B is a beautiful working farm with great views of the beautiful Tuscan countryside and Florence. We were graciously upgraded to an apartment since we were the only ones there. The apartment was clean and comfortable but pretty basic. Although it's advertised as self-catering, it lacked a decent range of cookware and silverware to really do this, such as there was one small serrated knife for cutting veg or meat and no chopping board. Also, not sure if it really is up to the standard of a B&B since the "breakfast" options were tea and coffee and then bread, butter, and jam for toast. Maybe the addition of at least cereal (since you are given a large container for milk for drinks) would help. We arrived by car so can't comment on the distance to a train or bus station but even by car you have to go almost a mile before you come to a bigger country road that leads you to Impruneta. But it's this remoteness that lends itself to the solitude and beauty of the surrounds. Since it was February, we obviously didn't test out the pool but we imagined it would be lovely after a day of sightseeing in Florence. We would bring along some of our own kitchen items for cooking but we would definitely stay again for relaxing base near Florence.
