About The Experience
Ideal for a family or friends, this apartment is one of four for rent within a carefully renovated Tuscan farmhouse. Each apartment has its own outdoor area while they share a beautiful pool with Casa Gilda, a farmhouse right next door. There is ample outdoor seating. Located in the heart of Tuscany, day trips to Certaldo, San Gimignano, Siena, Florence and more are easily accomplished using either the train in Certaldo (Florence and Siena) or a car.
Location Description

Strategically positioned between Florence and Siena, in the heart of Tuscany, this estate is just two kilometers from Fiano, a village with shops, and six kilometers from Certaldo. Certaldo has all the necessities combined with small-town charm. Pick up groceries or eat out in the modern section and spend the rest of your day exploring Certaldo Alta, the old medieval village. In July, you may find yourself in the midst of a lively Renaissance festival, complete with street artists, actors, musicians, and more.

There are several outdoor areas for al fresco dining or enjoying the sunset every evening. The driveway leading to the property is windy, uphill, and unpaved.

Tips or Restaurants:
If you wish to visit local wineries, etc arrange them ahead of time including visiting the local cheese factories. We did have one of the best wine tasting experiences at the owner's own winery. Having a car in this area is highly recommended as there is so much to see in the surrounding countryside.
