Impruneta Apartment Rental Photos and Description

9 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, sleeps 23

Located atop the hill of the ancient Certosa abbey of Florence, immersed in the green of countryside of Tuscany, The Certosa Country House is only 6 Km from the ancient walls of downtown Florence. The house is immersed in the quiteness of the contryside but in the same time is 3 kms away from the the 'Impruneta' highway exit, in a strategic position to visit the wonderful hills of Chianti Region and the centre of Florence!

The History: For the past few centuries, The Rustico della Certosa was a simple building created to welcome peasants working on the surrounding hills. During the 1980's the house was completely renovated, paying close attention not to remove or alter those unique elements that call to mind its rustic past (the ancient exposed wood beams, the original cotto floors from Impruneta).

From the 2005 year we restored three beautifull, fully indipendent units:

The Rustico della Certosa apartment. The biggest portion of the house: a fully indipendent apartment of 200 squared metres house!5BD 3BA

The Rustichetto della Certosa apartment. A fully indipendent apartment of 95 squared metres house. 3BD 2BA

The Rustichino della Certosa apartment. A fully indipendent apartment of 50 squared metres house. 1BD 1BA

All the three apartments has a private garden area with a table, chairs and umbrella. The garden is a true oasis where you can have lunch or dinner ouside or relax during the day.

During the day it is possible to visit the countless works of art of Florence, but to also organize short day-trips in the most famouse tuscany sites.

3.Piazza del Duomo of Pisa (50 minutes away from the property by car);

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
The owners of the property were very accommodating. Lovely surroundings, very clean and not far from the city center. 15 to 20 minutes by car. I slept like a baby at night. My parents were with us and they had no complaints except for the stairs in the entryway my 89 year old Dad had to negotiate. Driving up the narrow road to the property was a little spooky at first but I got used to it quickly. Let's just say it added to the experience.

I may have to send them a french press coffee-maker though. I'm very particular about my coffee and their selection of coffee-makers is a little exotic.

We didn't have the bed and breakfast treatment as we weren't in the high season so If you are planning to cook your meals you may need to drive down to the convenience store for groceries. There don't seem to be any supermarkets near the villa. There is a great fruit stand nearby and pastry shops not to far from the property. 10 minute drive to the stores. There are great restaurants in the area.

An ancient plaque on the house next door says it was Michelangelo's teacher Domenico Ghirlandaio's place. I never got to ask the owner if that was true so assume it was.

All-in-all it was a great stay and I hope to do it again real soon.

Excellent Accomodation

  • 5 of 5
We rented this apartment on very short notice, I bought my ticket 1 week before travelling. Alessandro was very prompt in replying to my email which was important as I only had a week for all the back and forths of email, I am glad the apartment was available, and we were very pleased with it. It is well equipped, very clean,and the bed is comfortable. It is a great location, we headquartered here and drove to Pisa, Lucca, Cinque Terre, Siena, the hilltop towns south of Siena and of course took the bus into Florence. Most of the above places are around an hour to an hour and half away. I would highly recommend the accomodation, it was a pleasure dealing with Alessandro, and I would go back in a heartbeat. Shirley

Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place to stay - a peaceful country setting, plenty of space, clean and tidy and well equipped!

We stayed here for three nights and were really pleased with everything. It was easy to reach by car, then catch a bus into the heart of Florence and close to a little grocery store with everything you need. The owners are accommodating and the house had a lot of extras that many holiday homes we stayed a did not...a washing machine and washing powder, tea and coffee and everything you need.

Would definately recommend!

A wonderful time

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the 1 bedroom apartment. We had a wonderful time. The countryside is beautiful (olive trees and vineyards) and the family could not have been more welcoming. It's convenient to get to Florence. Just drive down the hill and catch the bus into the heart of the city. It's also a great launching point to the many attractions in Tuscany (the Chianti region, Siena, Lucca, etc). The road to the farm is quite narrow, but my husband soon became an "Italian" driver!

Wish we'd stayed longer!

Wish we'd stayed longer!
  • 5 of 5
I chose to stay here, because a friend lived nearby, and I was very happy we did. Like the review above mine, I also have an older parent (79.) We stayed in the smaller 1st floor apartment, and there are 4 or 5 stone steps from the "main" road entrance, but we could drive up to the door when needed, and my mom could handle the steps with my help. It was one of only two places we stayed in Italy that were fairly easy access for an older person; there are stairs everywhere in Italy, and it was difficult for my mom, so it was _very_ nice for her here. If someone were confined to a wheelchair, you might have trouble negotiating the driveway in a car at night to get dropped off.

The apartment was very clean, and we had a very pleasant experience. We dealt with Alessandro and Enrico, both very responsive and helpful. We stayed four days, and I wish we had stayed a bit longer, as there is so much to see in the area. This was mother's first time in Italy, and she loved this part of the trip.

One nice thing about this location is that it seems like you are out in the country, but you are still very close to Florence. Step onto the road in front of the house and you can see the Duomo in the distance across the vineyards. We drove around a lot, and if you haven't driven in Italy, be prepared. There are benefits to being way far out in the countryside, but if you plan on visiting Florence, it's very nice to be so close and not have to drive a long way on the country roads at night. You can also get a bus into Florence, which we didn't do given my mom's mobility issues.

It's lovely and very peaceful. The the apartment we were in was on the bottom floor; there is a much larger space above. There was a family with 6 or 7 children staying there while we were, and we barely heard them. (We did not stay during the B&B Season, so one family had the whole upper floor.)

Also - re directions & shopping - we found it easier to come up & down the road via Tavarnuzze rather than try and make a left toward Florence near the Certosa. That was a tip from my local friend! Distance seemed to be the same. We shopped for food in Impruneta at the CoOp, although I'm sure there are closer places.

Note - we bought dish soap, etc., but we didn't really need to; might want to bring some toilet paper and plastic bags for trash; if you're coming from the US states, pack a few zip loc bags, they'll come in handy everywhere.
