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 Impruneta

Because one can enjoy both Florence life and the countryside which is wonderful in this area of Italy. It is ideal for short visits to surrounding areas such as Siena, San Gemignano, Certaldo, but also to go to the seaside in less than an hour, Rome or Venice in two hours etc etc

There is a golf course nearby, wine trips in Chianti region,

tennis courts hunting etc etc

There is also a chapel

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.

Charming house with everything you need to enjoy the italian 'far niente'

  • 5 of 5

House is perfectly located, in the heart of Tuscany countryside, but at the same time close to florence to visit the city. It is very well equipped to enjoy your vacations if you are a group or a family. Pool and the view make the most of it! :)

Beautiful old house in the countryside of Firenze

  • 4 of 5

Great house for cheap holiday for 20 people but the house was not clean enough, too furnished of personal belongings, there is a huge problem of mosquitoes.

But the overall stay was wonderful, we could be 20 people without feeling one on the other.

Owner's Response: Mr Israel not only you paid 30 percent less than asked, you occupied a house for 16 people in 20 and you dare giving us 4 instead of 5 stars!!!!!!! You are not correct!

Viva La Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful Villa with stunning views, the perfect location for Florence and in our case a wedding at Villa Corsini a short drive away.

Rita organised everything wonderfully well, we had provisions on arrival (pre booked) and a delightful Lasagne cooked by the very helpful housekeeper who also later in our stay doubled up as chauffeur ferrying us all home safely from the wedding in the early hours.

We had an amazing time and would wholeheartedly recommend this Villa

Charming and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We travelled with the extended family of 14 and had a lovely time. The house was well equipped, the pool was super and the sunset was beautiful every evening. The caretakers, Marisol and her husband, was very helpful and service minded and conveniently situated next door. The location is good for travellers with a car as it is a good starting point for travelling the countryside in Tuscany. Would highly recommend staying in the villa!

Just a small comment: a layout of the bedrooms should be included in the pictures/illustrations as the description is slightly misleading. The guesthouse had only possibility of 3 beds, not 4 as was stated in the description.

Great Place with Privacy near Firenze

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place. A little difficult to find (initially). This gave us privacy. It was also close enough to Firenze to be parked and in town in less than a half an hour. Air conditioned bedrooms allowed sleeping even when it was over 80F. We spent a week and would have loved to spend a longer time. The wonderful pool was a welcome on days that were over 90. High ceilings in the living room with lots of space made it very comfortable. Was very clean and well maintained. I recommend this great place to families a group of good friends . Loved it.

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.
