Why Alessandro Berni chose Impruneta

The villa Berni is a villa that I had from my parents to their parents and so on...

The property is immersed in the green countryside of Florence between olive trees and vineyards.

Our guests will have the possibility to taste our fresh vegetables from our vegetable garden.
