About The Experience

Within the Chianti region of Tuscany, this beautifully restored farmhouse near the charming town of Certaldo has characteristic wood-beamed ceilings, a spacious garden and a private pool overlooking the surrounding hills. It is easy to explore nearby San Gimignano and Siena from this convenient location, or hop the train in Certaldo to spend a day in Florence.

Location Description

Located seven kilometers away from this farmhouse is Certaldo, which has all the necessities combined with small-town charm. Pick up groceries or eat out in the modern section and spend time exploring Certaldo Alta, the old medieval village accessed by a funicular. In July, you may find yourself in the midst of a lively Renaissance festival, complete with street artists, actors, musicians, and more. And don't forget to get your fill of medieval architecture! You can explore the Pretorio Palace or marvel at the profile Certaldo castle cuts across the sky. Like museums? Visit the house of Giovanni Boccaccio (author of the Decameron). There is a convenient train station in town for visits to Florence (much the best way to go!). San Gimignano, Siena and the Chianti region are all good Day trips from this location. Pisa and Florence airports are easy arrival points where you can rent a car.

Nearby Attractions: The Chianti region is known for its “Chianti Classico” wine. Greve in Chianti, with its triangular shaped piazza has a great wine museum. Panzano’s old town is perfect for taking walks and the town has several wine bars and restaurants which offer wine tasting. In Castellina in Chianti, walk Via delle Volte, which is an underground tunnel around the city. The medieval towns of Radda and Gaiole offer tourists many castles to visit including the Castle of Volpaia, Castle of Vertine and the Castle of Meleto.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
It was great! We would love to go back.
Enjoyed Most:
The yard and the fantastic views.
Enjoyed Least:
Lack of lighting in the kitchen. We had to bring in a light from the bedroom and still needed more. Also very limited dishware. There were 6 of us and we had exactly 6 bowls, 6 plates, 6 glasses.
Surrounding Area:
Villa was on a hilltop and it was peaceful and quiet. Plus we could not get enough of the gorgeous views. Spent a lot of time outdoors, day and night!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Certaldo; too far to walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
We did a lot of cooking at the villa. The COOP was a great place to shop. Would recommend the chef-prepared meal.

Overall:
It was a vacation of a lifetime! We will remember our days there relaxing, enjoying the view, grilling on the outdoor grill, cooking delicious meals and having a meal cooked for us in the modern kitchen and swimming laps in the pool! The owner Francesco was just great and provided a lot of help in making our stay more enjoyable.
Enjoyed Most:
The location and views were right off a postcard. The property itself was very nice and well maintained.
Enjoyed Least:
The lighting in the kitchen could have been better.
Surrounding Area:
It was close to many small towns and wineries that we visited.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We were close to Certaldo which is very clean and quaint. It was not within easy walking distance, but a short drive in the car we rented.
Tips or Restaurants:
If you are driving, bring a working cell phone and Google Maps. We used it all the time with great accuracy. (We don't speak any Italian)
Directions:
We used the directions and went to the right street but went past it and ended up calling the property where Francesco, the owner happened to be working and he met us in town and we followed him back.
Check In Out:
We had to check-out the night before due to early flights out of Rome and Francesco was just great in meeting us the evening before and taking care of that.

Everything was wonderful! Can't choose a favorite feature.
Surrounding Area:
Conveniently located. Easily accessible to main attraction cities by car and train.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The center of Certaldo was less than 10 minutes away by car. San Gimignano was just 20 minutes away by car.

Directions:
Use car-provided WiFi, if you're able. Both Garmin and Waze did not give clear and accurate directions.

The farmhouse owner and check in/check out team were excellent. In addition to a smooth process, they provided assistance in locating grocery stores, local restaurants and the train.
