I was born and live in Certaldo.

For many years I host people coming from all over the world.

I am very pleased when they come back several times or get their sons or friends.

I love travel, reading, art, music, and especially being with my two grandchildren.

Miriam purchased this apartment in 1990

Certaldo Alto is a real gem and the atmosphere of our house is very warm and hospitable.

The view is unique.

Endroit idéal pour découvrir la toscane

  • Review Submitted: 06-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2013
Les incontournables sont Firenze et Siena mais les alentours (San Gimignano, Volterra...) restent une source de paisibilité et de bien être pour tous les sens!!! Certaldo est un endroit idéal pour découvrir la toscane : calme, proche de toutes commodités mais surtout magnifique et reposant.

"Absolutely charming"

We had a wonderful trip in late May 2013. The apartment is not fancy, but it was exactly what we needed. Central location, good train access, and wonderful dining experiences in Certaldo Alto. We traveled without a hitch via train to Siena and Firenze multiple times and drove to Pisa one day. Miriam helped us with car rental and return, as well as transfers to and from the Firenze airport. She could not have been more pleasant or helpful. Even though her English leaves something to be desired, must say that her English is way better than my Italian.

Lovely Accomodations

  • Review Submitted: 27-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2013
The location and the actual apartment were absolutely wonderful. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment with a sleep couch and it was more than adequate for 3 to 4 people. Miriam was personally very helpful with suggestions of places to visit and directions. I would recommend her lovely house to everyone visiting Tuscany. Centrally located to all places of interest in Tuscany. We loved everything about our stay in Certaldo. Absolutely top ratings.

Certaldo it is known worldwide especially as the hometown of Giovanni Boccaccio, who lived and died on 1375 in his house at Via Boccaccio. From Certaldo it is possible to reach in short time the most important towns and villages. The ospitality of the people of Certaldo, the conviviality of their

cuisine, the beauty of their craft are ingredients for a pleasant sojourn in

Tuscany, during which cultural occasions and spectacles are never missing.

Lanes and squares,dominated since XII Century by the Pretorian Palace, show

signs of Romanesque architecture and of thirteenth century paintings which

are framed and surrounded by the arts of our times.

Distance : San Gimignano km. 10, Siena km. 30, Firenze Km. 40, Volterra km. 30, Pisa e Lucca km. 60. Especially in the summer period, there are many cultural, musical and artistic events. In July the spectacular festival called 'MERCANTIA' with its street artists and artisans on every corner of Medieval town.

Parking: free near house
