Charming villa in fantastic location
Villa Berni is as described just outside Florence with a stunning view of the city from the Tower Bedroom. The garden is lovely to relax in during the day and the whole setting is wonderfully peaceful and rural. The pool whilst not large is great for a cooling dip after a hot day seeing the sights in Florence. We were a party of 4 couples, my wife and I and our 3 grown up children with their partners. The villa was plenty spacious enough, we could easily have catered for more! We hired a car in Pisa and drove over to the villa; I would say a car is essential as the supermarket is a few kms down the hill so lugging heavy shopping back up the hill in relatively high temperatures would not have worked for us, without a car. However as there were 8 of us arriving at different times, we also made use of Marco Berni's minibus service. He was great, taking us almost up to the door of the leaning tower of Pisa, also to Siena, Lucca, San Gimignano and my favourite of all, a wine-tasting at Castello di Verrazzano. He was very interesting to talk to about Tuscan life and very patient on the night we ended up waiting for him in the wrong square in Florence! Again as described the bus service into Florence from the bottom of the hill is reliable and the youngsters used that as a means of doing their own thing in the city. We also experienced the wonderful Tuscan cooking of Mina, Marco's mother, to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. It was delicious! We also had a Sicilian meal prepared for us which was also quite a treat. Any downsides....only the mosquitoes, so have some insect repellent handy; otherwise I would heartily recommend this villa as we had a marvellous holiday there.
Our family of 12 (10 adults and 2 teenagers) just returned from a fantastic, 3 generation, vacation at Villa Berni. The accommodations were beautiful, historic, and comfortable. We cooked in every night and enjoyed wine in the garden outside. We hired Marco as our driver and I don't know why anyone wouldn't want to take advantage of this service. He was so helpful and kind to all of us - going out of his way to make sure we were taken care of. The Villa is a short distance out of Florence, but it is on some Italian roads (narrow, winding) which is an additional reason Marco was the best money spent. The service between booking the Villa and arrival was exceptional. We can't wait to return!
The villa's incredible beauty and comfort were surpassed only by Enrico's care of us. He arranged many memorable excursions for us and made it possible for us to see and do more than we ever imagined. Eight women had plenty of room inside and in the lovely garden area. The villa and Enrico have tremendous amount of charm.
Wonderful time at Villa Berni!
I stayed at Villa Berni recently with 7 of my co-workers. We had a wonderful time and the accommodations
were great! The house is well kept with everything you need and the garden is beautiful. We used the driver service and Marco, our driver was wonderful. Mina prepared dinner for us one night and it was a fabulous meal.
Views from the upstairs windows are spectacular. I would definitely recommend this property for large families or groups traveling together.
Outstanding rental for the whole family
I rented this villa for a family trip over Chrustmas. Several of our party had never been to Italy. The large villa, with its multiple fireplaces, served as the perfect location for their stay. The owner of the villa helped us in so many ways including arranging art tours, a dinner at the villa for their first night after very long flights, firewood, housekeeping and transportation needs. The owner helped make the trip very memorable for all of my family and helped me in so many ways. It was perfect, even for our small dog.
Thank you for your kindness. We hope to see you again in our beautifull Florence.
The perfect place to stay
Villa Berni is even better than its pictures. It is absolutely lovely and its setting is beautiful. Everything you might need is supplied. There's a wonderful courtyard that is great for relaxing and enjoying the view. The villa is set on a hilltop with gorgeous views everywhere you look. It's an easy walk downhill to catch the bus into Florence and there are good restaurants nearby. Staying at Villa Berni made the trip more enjoyable for all.
