About Rita

We are Architects, living and working in Paris.

We have 3 children, now adults.

Rita purchased this villa in 1985

Why Rita chose Metropolitan City of Florence

Because one can enjoy both Florence life and the countryside which is wonderfull in this area of Italy.

What makes this villa unique

Its proximity to Florence, the space of a countryhouse.

Its accessibility, next to the major communication arteries (Highway

Rome Venice, Genova, Siena)

We fell in love with our home, because it is settled in a tiny picturesque village,it has beautifull views from the living room, or the arched entryway. It has a porch-veranda which is an outside living room where we spend most of the days in summer, which continue with an open terrace overlooking the garden and the pool.

Tuscan flair!

  • 5 of 5

2 weeks in Italy with 14 family members (4 teenagers): one week based in this well loved and cared for Tuscan villa with fabulous views. It felt like home with beautiful plants, international decor and art work, music and stereo on which we loved to play classical music in the back ground as we ate appetizers out on the loggia. Our favorite was the loggia, where we hung out eating breakfast, appetizers and dinner even if it was rainy.

Rita, the owner was very responsive and has a super sweet caretaker who also helped us tremendously... including with translating our preferences to a hired chef for our evening meals. The chef was also flexible and incredibly talented (including making our leftovers into other delicious meals). Having her allowed us more family relaxation time as she prepared aromatic Tuscan dinners. And it was more economical than going out to dinner. Our only challenge: Bring a set of ear plugs in case the neighborhood dog is up early but don't let this be a deterrence.

The road to the villa is a challenge if you use the GPS instead of Rita's instructions... especially if you don't have a small car. We found the back way (the road that leads to Impruneta) as being an easier way to get to the villa from Florence (but much easier to miss the first time) and is also more picturesque. We loved the convenience to Florence and we would also have been content had we had just stayed at the villa the whole time! Thank you for a the highlight of our trip Rita.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We visited the villa in the end of August with a group of eight friends. A very hot period, fortunately the pool provided a lot of coolness. The rooms were cool as well thanks to the A/C in every room. With Florence, Impruneta and Galluzzo right around the corner groceries and sightseeing were easy to arrange (renting a car mandatory, we did rent one car for groceries and visited Florence with the car and one taxi). But we did not visit Florence as much as we planned, as the villa provided us almost everything we needed to have a wonderful holiday. The guardian, Marisol, was very kind and checked up on us every once in a while if we needed something. Besides that, we had nice contact with the owner, Rita, who provided us with a lot of information about both the villa and the neighborhood .

I would definitely recommend this villa to everyone, this kind of villa in this kind of authentic tuscan environment provides you a wonderful stay for your holidays.

Wonderful stay in Firenze

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 families, in total 12 persons (6 adults, 6 children) from Norway, who were renting the villa for two weeks, July 2015. All renting arrangements and contractual issues were smoothly setup by owner. Upon arrival we were well taken care of by the guardian living next door. Easy to contact in case questions popped up when we were stating there.

During our stay we had an excellent weather, inviting to sunbathing and pool activity, but also various trips to nearby cities and of course beautiful Florence only a 15 minutes drive from the location. As there are some distance (approx. 2 km) to nearest main road, I would recommend people who rent the villa to have access to car. For people who like would like to walk to the main road, bus is a good alternative for traveling to Florence.

We will for sure recommend others to rent the villa.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We rented this villa for a week in July 2014, for four adults and 2 children. The villa is great, and just as the pictures described. The kids loved the pool and the outside terrace with the table was great for dinners and nighttime cocktails watching the sun set over the hills. The location was perfect - 10 km from Florence and closer to Imprunetta, which was a nice little town with good restaurants. The house is very large, as we had a spare bedroom we did not use as well as the guesthouse by the pool. The owner was very friendly and helpful, as well as the local housekeeper. We would definitley recommend this villa.

Thanks - Jon, Chicago, USA

A perfect place to spend a familyholiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved the big house with all its facilities, the very spacious rooms, the AC, the efficient weekly care by the housekeeper, the covered terrace and the wonderful swimmingpool.Also the location so near Florence and other places of interest was a great asset to the house.Perhaps the indications to get to the location could have been more exact. A recommandable place to stay!

Beautiful place. Ideal location for full or half day trips to Florence, Chianti vineyards, Siena, Sangiminano & Pisa with afternoon by pool and later Tuscan sunsets.

Experianced drivers with small car recommended.
