About The Experience
Looking to explore the Chianti region of Tuscany with all the comforts of home—and more? This estate features two private villas for rent in Tuscany, two swimming pools, sprawling grounds and all the amenities indoors. How is this possible? One of the owners of this accommodation in Tuscany—with whom you'll share the property—is originally American, and she's furnished both villas for rent in Tuscany to American tastes. So relax! Lounge at this Tuscany vacation rental, take a refreshing bike ride to nearby Certaldo (we highly recommend exploring the Pretorio Palace), or take a day trip to Florence and beyond!
Location Description

This Tuscany estate and two villas are located 50 meters off of a paved, lightly traveled country road. A bus stop is only 200 meters away, and the nearest town is Certaldo, at 4 km, which can be reached by car. With a population of about 15,000, 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 Alto, the old medieval village. You'll find many merchants selling traditional products such as wine, woven baskets, and ceramics. 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). The beaches of Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio are within day-trip distance, along a lovely drive going past Pisa. Day trips will also take you to San Gimignano, Siena, and Florence. For arriving, you may wish to fly into Pisa and take the train directly to Certaldo, where you can rent a car.

Exterior Description
(300,000 m2)

Enter the estate of this historic 14th century villa via a private gate and find yourself in a garden filled with cypress, pine, and oak trees. There are lemon trees and a covered terrace overlooking vineyards and the valley. Also on the estate you will find several barns, and an unused underground wine cellar. One third of the remaining land is a nature reserve—a wooded area inhabited by wild pheasants, rabbits, boar, and hedgehogs. Another part of the estate is used for olive tree cultivation, and there is also a resident horse that enjoys free grazing around an ancient Roman fresh water spring. Tenuta dell’Anima - 12 is the combination of two separate accommodations on the same estate: Villa Sella and Villa Certaldo. Villa Certaldo is on the east wing of a villa shared by the owners with its own private entrance, covered terrace (shared wall with Villa Sella) barbecue, parking and garden area. It shares a swimming pool (16m x 6m) with La Solaia, and the owners of the estate. Villa Sella is an independent house with its own private swimming pool (9m x 4m), fenced garden and a spacious covered terrace with a table and chairs for ‘al fresco’ dining (shared wall with Villa Certaldo). There is a gate between the two private yards that can be opened. There is plenty of parking on the estate.

Customer Reviews

It was awesome! And meeting Elizabeth and Adi, the owners, was a highlight! Loved them and hiking all over the property!
Enjoyed Most:
We loved everything!
Enjoyed Least:
Initially the elaborate recycle process was a little daunting but we adapted and felt good about helping the planet. The WiFi was also a little challenging with so many of us on computers, laptops and devices!
Surrounding Area:
The view was amazing! The hikes were splendid!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Sciano. Great pizza at Marino's. And yes my husband and I could have easily walked it but roads are narrow with no shoulder.
Tips or Restaurants:
Mssrs Boccaccio in Certaldo Alto was great! So was Antica Fonte . Marino's in Sciano was a regular hang out for all of us!
We used GPS and still had an issue but only because the driveway is kind of hidden from the direction we came in and there are no numbers on the "street." But once we turned around we found it.
Check In Out:
Check in/check out was very efficient.

Excellent! We were delighted with the property and sights both close by and farther away.
Enjoyed Most:
We so enjoyed everything about the property from waking up in the morning seeing a beautiful view from our bedroom to sitting outside on our beautiful verandas in the late evening planning our next day. The owners were lovely and we so enjoyed the tour they gave us of their property--so interesting!
Surrounding Area:
Certaldo Alto was a treat and local treasure. The vineyards around the property, everything was lovely.
Nearby Events or Locales:
It was not in walking distance but some of us bicycled to town daily.
Tips or Restaurants:
All the restaurants were great - all offered dishes that were unique and not repetitive everywhere we went. There were no bad experiences anywhere we ate.
Our party arrived in various cities--Rome, Venice, Florence--we all found the villa no problem. The directions were perfect!
Check In Out:
Elizabeth was wonderful and welcoming. We were so grateful for the welcome and hospitality. A huge pleasure!

My family and I had such a wonderful time. We traveled with our 1.5 yr old son. Everything he needed was provided, including high-chair, crib, toys, dishes and cutlery. We didn't need to bring a anything for him. He loved the outdoor space, the pool. We loved the view and the peace and quiet. The villa was clean and well kept. The owners were friendly and helpful.
Enjoyed Most:
The location. It was so close to a town, with a grocery store and train station and close to some major destinations. I also loved the scenery. I just loved everything about it.
Surrounding Area:
I loved that we were so close to towns, grocery stores, train stations.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest town was Certaldo. It was not within walking distance, but it didn't matter because we rented a car.
Tips or Restaurants:
The owner had some really good suggestions for restaurants. All were fabulous.
It was relatively easy with a GPS. We probably would not have found it any other way.
Check In Out:
All was great.
