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.

GARRY, October

Overall:
We had a wonderful week at Certaldo 4. The villa was lovely, comfortable and immaculate. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and maintained. Sylvia, the property manager, took wonderful care of us and was always extremely helpful.
Enjoyed Most:
The property was large with incredible landscaping, flowers, trees etc. The path to the large pool and the pool itself was lovely. The view from this villa high in the hills was spectacular.
Enjoyed Least:
There was a long unpaved, winding and hilly road to get to the villa that was filled with deep potholes and blinding curves. The couch in this villa was really a daybed and very uncomfortable for sitting.
Surrounding Area:
The villa is located between Florence and Siena and is within reasonable driving distance to both of these cities as well as to other Tuscany towns.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Fiano was the closest town. It was very small and offered very little and is not in walking distance. Certaldo, a much larger city, was about 4 miles away. It has a wonderful large market (COOP) where you can get whatever you need. The city itself has shops and restaurants as well as an old walled city that has a few lovely restaurants.
Directions:
We came from Florence to Certaldo. Directions given by the villa were good. Unfortunately we used our GPS, which was not working properly-- and that prolonged our trip.
