About Alessandro Berni
My name is Alessandro - live in Florence. I manage my properties (I own 4 total) with my wife Arianna and my brother Enrico to the best of our abilities. We are extremely helpful in preparations for your stay, as well as while you will on site. We provide all the information on places to eat and to shop and to visit our special city. We work to assure that our house will be your home away from home and visit Florence as only a Florentine person can do!
Why Alessandro Berni chose Impruneta
The location is great! Infact the house is near the five Tuscany Unesco heritage sites: 1.Historic centre of Florence (10-15 minutes away from the property by car). 2.Historic centre of Siena (45 minutes away from the property by car); 3.Piazza del Duomo of Pisa (50 minutes away from the property by car); 4.Historic centre of Lucca (60 minutes away from the property by car); 5.Towers of Sangiminiano (30 minutes away from the property by car). The house is wonderfull and very spacious....the ancient exposed wood beams, and the original cotto floors from Impruneta: you'll taste the unique Tuscany style!
What makes this Apartment unique
Taking the dog for a morning walk around our wonderfull tuscany hill through fields of olive trees and vineyards. From our property you can walk and see the wonderfull sightsee of the historic city centre of Florence!

We had a lovely stay at this property and the host was very nice. We stayed during the unseasonably hot weather and missed having aircon in the living area! The bedrooms do and it made for very good peaceful nights sleeps. The property has very good quality furniture and amenities.. from dishwasher to large hob, walk in shower and washing machine. everything appeared to be new. . The couch facing the TV would seat max 4, there is also a dining room table with seating for 6. There is an excellent HD TV and for the English guests Channel 21 provides some decent entertainment after a long day of sunbathing and exploring.. The property has it's own private garden and sun loungers and is very peaceful. I would say a car was essential for this property as it is situated at the top of a very long hill. The town has fabulous bus connections to Florence which is a must see and there is free parking to facilitate this. Tickets must be purchased prior to travel from the local restaurant diagonally opposite the bus stop. There is also a very good supermarket in the town with very good opening hours. If you want to get away from it all and like your privacy I would definitely recommend, if you want to be close to bars and restaurants I would hesitate to. Certainly a very enjoyable stay....
This Villa is incredible!!
Our stay at Rustico della Certosa was perfect! The beautiful villa is incredibly spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed cooking dinner in the lovely kitchen, which has all the amenities you could need. We did not have a car; however, we were able to walk about a mile to the closest bus stop and make it into Florence without trouble. Alessandro and Enrico were beyond helpful and answered all of our needs so quickly! We would definitely recommend this villa for a peaceful, gorgeous stay just outside of Florence. Thank you so much for an amazing stay!
A Rustic Gem with fabulous Owners
We stayed at Alessandro's place during the half term holiday in October. The house itself is located in a rural part of Impruneta and a car is absolutely essential for getting about if you are going to base yourselves here.
But I have to say that this was a priceless gem of a find: perfectly located to explore the City of Florence or to access the Tuscan Hills, the towns of Sienna and San Gimignano and the Chianti region, the hillside location offers stunning views of Florence and the Olive groves and vineyards that surround it. That sounds like I've cut-and-pasted from some glossy brochure - but it's absolutely true!
The villa itself is homely yet modern and above all, welcoming. It has every convenience you could ask for and is beautifully decorated. The owners clearly have an eye for detail and have made every effort to ensure guests are comfortable. It is all very tastefully done. Each bedroom is spacious and comfortable - besides being scrupulously clean.
During our stay, we encountered a problem with one of the tyres on our hire car. Having been told that our hire company would have charged excessively to help with this, we phoned Alessandro and he went to great lengths not only to direct us to a reputable garage - but he also did all the negotiations and translations. He could not have been more helpful!
Florence is astoundingly beautiful - and not as expensive as we'd been previously led to believe. We will certainly be revisiting the city - and we will make sure that we book with Alessandro. We know we won't be disappointed!
Lovely Italian hospitality in peaceful location
‘We had a very lovely stay at Villa Rustichetto. On our arrival we received a warm welcome from the owner Alessandro; we were made to feel like valued guests in his home. We were given a tour of the vegetable garden where an array of vegetables and fruits were picked for us to take back to our villa; from these freshly picked ingredients we were able to produce some delicious meals, full of flavour.
Whenever it was needed this Italian hospitality and care continued throughout our stay.
The Villa is comfortable, furnished with style, exceptionally clean and well equipped; and with a large garden to relax in and enjoy leisurely meals - especially breakfast!
The location is quiet, peaceful, but not isolated, with many amenities only a short distance away; a perfect place to return to after a day of sightseeing in this beautiful region of Italy.

Un cadre magnifique
La maison est située au coeur de la campagne toscane. Depuis la route qui borde l'entrée de la maison on a une vue splendide sur la campagne, les oliviers, les cyprès et quelques villas florentines mais aussi sur Florence !!!
Proche de Florence et des routes pour aller découvrir Sienne ou des villages tels que San Gimignano, c'est l'endroit idéal pour séjourner.
La maison est très moderne, bien équipée et bien entretenue. Elle dispose d'un grand jardin où l'on peut trouver un toboggan pour les enfants.
Alessandro et son frère ont été très accueillants et très réactifs à toutes les questions.
Si vous cherchez un lieu pour résider aux abords de FLorence, ne cherchez plus vous l'avez trouvé !
