  • Andrea's apartment is clean, easy to find and in a very beautiful part of Tuscany. It is in easy walking distance of Impuneta, though I suggest you drive to the co-op which is tucked away in a back street on the other side of town and a little tricky to locate. The apartment is very dark with little natural light and the water heater is too small to allow 2 people to shower consecutively. The bath towels were very small and thin making drying yourself difficult. If you are more than 6ft tall you will need to bend down to get through some of the doorways. We also had to ask for toilet paper which was handed out 1 small roll at a time. Our biggest problem was the mosquitos. Even though the windows had screens the apartment was full of them and it was impossible to sleep as they buzzed around and bit all night. Take insect spray with you. In the reviews we read guest mentioned how helpful and welcoming Andrea and his mother were. Unfortunately, this was not our experience. They gave us little assistance with what to see, where to go and what to do.

  • Impruneta is a great place to explore the Sienna/Firenze and Chianti area, and the appartment is well accessible for all of these. The house was great, very confortable and clean, and well equipped, Andrea and his mum were welcoming hosts.
    Highly recommend this place.

  • We have wonderful time at Andrea's apartment in Impruneta. The location is beautiful with rolling green hills and the warm Tuscan sun. The apartment is spacious for two. The kitchen is fully functional and more than adequate for our cooking needs. The entire apartment is tastefully decorated and has retained its Tuscan character.

    Andrea and his mother are very nice people and great hosts. We were not left wanting in anyway. Both were able to understand English and that really helped as our Italian is non-existent.

    The place is 15 minutes walk from the Impruneta town, but is decently connected by bus. The bus also connects Impruneta itself to the Florence railway station, taking about 40 minutes for the trip. Beautiful drive, incidentally. If you are planning on arriving by public transport and don't have a car (which we didn't), then you should get the bus schedules as not all buses coming from Florence come up to the stop near the apartment.

    The wifi was fine, and we were able to use it in the living room and the bedroom. The kitchen has all the utensils and other essentials. The linen was spotlessly clean and Andrea's mother brought fresh linen weekly. Andrea and she were kind enough to guide us to the location of the local supermarket (Coop).

    Overall we really liked our stay here, and would would love to stay again!

  • Andrea was very responsive with information leading up to our arrival, as well as helpful and accessible during our stay. The place was clean and tidy, had all the amenities as advertised, and Andrea let us know to ask him if there was anything else we needed during our stay. The hot water tank was smaller than we are used to, but it still allowed for a quick shower. The location is beautiful and fairly easy to get to by car (even for an inexperienced driver like myself). The bed was very comfortable and allowed for a good night's sleep. Would gladly stay at this location again, and highly recommend it.

  • Unterkunft liegt schön gelegen in der Nähe von Impruneta. Impruneta ist ein nettes Städtchen mit einem schönen Markt und Florenz ist ebenfalls nicht weit entfernt. Wir haben die Gegend mit dem Fahrrad erkundet, was sehr empfehlenswert ist (wenn einem die Hügel nicht schrecken).
    Andrea und seine Mutter sind sehr freundlich. Das Apartment ist geräumig.

  • We had a very enjoyable stay at Andrea's apartment . It resulted in our extending our stay for a few days. The apartment is on the ground floor of a 16th century villa and the family has maintained the characteristics of the period - even to the ceiling woodwork. The apartment was spacious, functional and very well located. We took the bus to Florence Centro and it took about 20 minutes. The family was extremely supportive and communicative and we can only recommend others use the apartment. Andrea is a charming and friendly young host.

  • My husband and I stayed 3 nights in this lovely, quiet bnb. We were greated by Andrea and his wife who are both kind, warm and thoughtful. The cabin we had was well equiped with everything that you could want. There is a wonderful view, and many seats and tables outside for their guests. They checked with us daily to see if we needed anything. Thamk you so much for a great stay. I highly recommend this air bnb. Pat & Simon.

  • Andrea and Adele are very friendly, hospitable and courteous, the apartment was spotlessly clean as was all the linen.The 2 single divan beds are very comfortable considering they are divan beds.
    An excellent base for anyone wishing to explore Tuscany and Florence, Chianti Gallo Nero, Siena, San Gimignano areas, parking in front of the apartment and a very reasonable rate for the unit too. I would recommend more people try this out instead of paying extortionate rates elsewhere. I have worked in tourism for 30 years with Italy and ran some of the leading travel companies. If you want to be sensible with what you are spending and don't need the pool and other frills, stay here.

  • I had another great stay in Impruneta. The countryside around there is stunning. The accommodations are very clean and quiet. You can take the bus into Florence just around the corner from the house. If you can visit here during the Grape Festival the last Sunday in September. Andrea & his mother are very kind and gracious hosts. I will certainly be coming back to stay with them again in the future.
