About The Experience

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.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
We loved this hunter's cottage! The property manager couldn't have been more helpful. The pool was a delight and the property was lovely with an eclectic array of artifacts scattered about. It is a simple cottage, somewhat rustic which worked just fine for us. We were within 15 minutes of the supermarket and main part of town.
Enjoyed Most:
The pool.
Enjoyed Least:
Although the pool lounges were lovely, other outdoor furniture was uncomfortable.
Surrounding Area:
The cottage itself was fairly isolated, but it was only a 15 minute drive into town.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Sciano was a hamlet with only 1 restaurant. Certaldo - a real town, was not within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
If you need milder American coffee or non-dairy creamer - BRING YOUR OWN! We didn't have any really hot nights- but there is no AC, only fans.
Directions:
Used GPS set for Sciano which got us close enough.
