We had a good stay here in Impruneta. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking simple meals and Andrea is very friendly. Impruneta is a nice town to stay in and the buses to Florence come quite frequently.
We really enjoyed staying in the apartment. It had everything we needed (except a kettle!) and it was so great being away from the busyness of Florence, yet close enough to pop in when desired. Our favourite day was spent exploring Tuscany and the location made that very easy. We also enjoyed Impruneta - although we did get a little lost trying to find the Coop! The hosts were great and we highly recommend their apartment.
The town of Impruneta is about a 35 minute drive out of Florence, but it is a very vibrant wonderful town. They seemed to have something going on every evening, the town is maybe 3km from the house. The house is in a nice neighborhood, I felt safe walking in the evening. The house had dated furnishings but was clean and had all I needed for a stay. The home was approximately 100yrs old, not very old to Florence standards, but still had plenty of character. Andrea and his mother were the hosts and lived separately on the upper level. They were very available if we needed them. They also let me move the dates of my stay with no extra charge, my train into Florence had gone on a strike half way there and we arrive too late for a bus or car rental and had to stay one night in down town Florence...250€.. Thank you for the hospitality, maybe we will see you again someday.
Andrea und seine Mutter haben uns warmherzig begrüßt und waren stets hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung ist top gepflegt und äußerst sauber. Gut gefallen hat uns auch der Kamin, an dem wir gemütliche Abende verbringen konnten. Im Sommer ist die Wohnung sehr empfehlenswert, da sie mit wenigen Fenstern sehr kühl ist. Da wir das Pech hatten, im Mai eine Woche Regen zu erwischen, hätten wir uns etwas mehr Tageslicht gewünscht. Wir hatten kein Auto und haben alles mit Bussen gemacht, das war okay (durch viel Verkehr ca. 40-60 min bis Florenz), aber die Haltestelle Impruneta ist ca. 15min zu Fuß entfernt, so dass das 17km entfernte Florenz ohne Auto insgesamt etwas umständlich zu erreichen ist. Wir empfehlen daher, ein Auto zu mieten, denn die Autobahnanbindung ist sehr gut!
Andrea and his mother are very friendly hosts. It is a pity that we had not so much time to stay in their original home and chat with them.
This is a real big house with history and ancient atmosphere. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Just bear in mind that inside the house is pretty cold, especially if you come from the street in hot weather. Separately, we can say about a bedroom with a very comfortable bed and warm blankets, where you can sleep very well.
The house is located in a quiet and very beautiful location, surrounded by green garden. In the courtyard there is a place where you can drink your morning coffee. Near the house there are a lot of tres and stunning scent of flowering trees. The house is a 20-minute walk from the main square. All the way you can admire the stunning views of Impruneta. Ask in advance about the siesta, when everything is closed. Buses CAP go to Florence on a schedule, for which you can ask the driver. The trip to the center of Florence is 35 minutes.
If you are in Impruneta, we advise you to stay in the house of Andrea.
Olga and Anna. May 2015.
Andrea and his mom were super friendly hosts. The apartment was AMAZING and you get true value for your money. It provides a true Tuscan experience with a 30 minutes travel to Florence. Andrea went out of his way to make our experience wonderful and helped us with whatever we need. We were sad to leave as we felt like we were home. Thank you for such a wonderful time, it was one of our favourite places ever!
