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.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Amazing place and a great location to explore the Tuscany region.
Enjoyed Most:
Location was excellent. Villa had everything we were looking for with respect to internal layout (2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms) kitchen, although small, did work for the time we were in the house, spectacular view and beautifully kept property. We were able to secure the services of a local chef for a cooking class which was fabulous.
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing really about the property. The road leading into the villa was a little tricky navigating at night because of the steep grade and number of turns, not to mention the road was gravel.
Surrounding Area:
Location made it very easy to visit local villages and explore the country side. We booked a private tour for a day and a half. Found the experience gratifying. Monica took us to a few private wine tastings, one in a castle which was the best one we have ever been experienced.
Nearby Events or Locales:
No, we were about 50 kilometers from Florence. Florence is a nice place to visit which we did one day, but we prefer staying in the country and visiting the small towns and villages where the people are. You can walk into shops get a feel for the culture.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring comfortable shoes as the countryside is great for exploring as well as the small towns. Cobblestone roads make it challenging for long distance walking, so be prepared. Restaurant, there was one just up the road. We stayed at the villa seven nights and had dinner at this place three times. The name was L'Osteria Di Casa Chianti. Reasonably priced, food outstanding, service amazing. And you get a glass of limoncello at the conclusion of the meal. What's not to like?
Directions:
Nothing comes to mind, but strongly suggest you have GPS as the roads are winding and it will make your life easier.
Check In Out:
Nothing. Everything was great!

Alex, September

Overall:
Excellent! We really enjoyed our stay! The unit was spacious, perfect for two couples, and the view of the countryside was spectacular!
Enjoyed Most:
The view of the surrounding countryside.
Surrounding Area:
Small towns and countryside - very scenic.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Fiano - about 2 km away, not easily walkable in view of narrow, uneven roads.
Tips or Restaurants:
No - just enjoy the property and surrounding area!
Directions:
Not sure you can do much, since the property is on a small country road. We did use GPS.
