About The Experience
Unwind after climbing through hilltop villages with a dip in the private pool, enjoy the spoils of your wine tasting excursion in this villa’s lush private garden, or just snuggle up next to the fireplace with family or friends. Set in a tranquil location in Tuscany’s Chianti region, this villa is a great base for exploring the picturesque medieval villages, the world-renowned wine, and serene landscapes of the region.

Nearby Certaldo has more extensive shops, and a cable car that takes you up to its hilltop medieval village where there’s a castle, a palace, and the house of the famous author Giovanni Boccaccio. A few minutes away by car, San Gimignano is a great place to go for a day trip. Known for its history stretching back to Etruscan times it’s one of the most visited towns in Tuscany, and it’s easy to see why with its medieval walls, famous towers, the 12th century Duomo, the People's Palace, and museums. The town also has wine tours galleries, and annual events including a a music festival featuring theater, ballet, and opera performances, and a Medieval Harvest festival where the people of San Gimignano dress up as knights, play medieval games, and have tournaments. From Certaldo, you can take a train to Florence or Siena for a day trip.

Overall:
Staying here gave us the opportunity to really experience living in the countryside. It was secluded, quiet and private. We were able to relax and enjoy the many nice features of the property. Returning here after a day of exploring felt like "coming home".
Enjoyed Most:
The rustic simplicity of the house, the quietness of the neighborhood and the lovely setting were some of the best features. It truly felt like a comfortable Italian country home. The lovely covered porch provided a great spot to eat, relax or read.
Enjoyed Least:
The kitchen was simple, but still adequate for a vacation setting.
Surrounding Area:
We really enjoyed the fact that the house was set among farms and little vineyards.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest town was Sciano and we did walk there for pizza one day. It was a very easy walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
Be sure to bring towels to use by the pool. Buy the insect plug-ins at the Coop - they really work well. Be sure to plan what you want to buy before you go to the Coop. The first visit there can be a bit confusing until you understand the procedures of shopping in a new place. Certaldo has several really good restaurants. We had great lunch and dinner experiences in Certaldo Alto. The servers are very welcoming to English speaking guests. The food in the region is excellent!
Directions:
There are two gates for the property. The first gate is open and is the one to use, but you can't see the house when you arrive. The second gate is never opened, but you can see the house when you drive up to it. That is a little confusing. We did use a GPS, but street addresses are a little tricky in the countryside.
Check In Out:
One of the key holders does not speak English. The other does speak a little. While he was very nice and tried to be helpful, it was difficult for him to explain things to us clearly. There is really nothing about the property that needs too much explanation, but it would have been nice to be able to ask more questions about the local area when checking in.

Overall:
We had a delightful time. The location of the property was excellent, with easy access, yet remote enough to be out of the "hustle and bustle" of a main thoroughfare.
Enjoyed Most:
The porch with large table and comfortable chairs was a highlight of this property. Providing shade in a peaceful setting, we were able to be outside, yet very comfortable. We ate, read, played games and had conversations on this porch. Had we been required to be indoors, it would have not been nearly as nice.
Enjoyed Least:
Two things 1) the beds...the mattresses were hard and uncomfortable 2) the grounds were not properly manicured...weeds grew up around the beautiful flowers and took away from the overall experience that could have easily been maintained.
Surrounding Area:
Wonderful area! Easy access to Certaldo by car. The view of the local vineyards was gorgeous. We were not disturbed (other than by barking dogs) and felt very safe thanks to the nightly monitor by a security firm.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Sciano was within walking distance...about a 2 km walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
The villa was ready when we arrived. We took a surge protector allowing us to plug one European transformer adapter into the wall and then the surge protector into that. This allowed us ample space for our many American phones, iPads, etc. A stop to the grocery store in Certaldo allowed us to stock up quickly with essential food. I would also suggest a plug-in insect repellent for the bedrooms. This worked fantastically.
Directions:
We did use a GPS, but the directions provided by the villa were sufficient.
