About Miriam

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

Why Miriam chose Certaldo

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

The view is unique.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Nagyszer? kiindulópont kirándulásokhoz

  • 5 out of 5
Szívb?l ajánljuk ezt a kedves házat ebben az elvarázsolt kis középkori városkában. A helyiek rendkívül kedvesek, segít?készek, és a hely remek kiindulópont toszkánai kirándulásokhoz. A pályaudvar a háztól kb. 10 perces séta, Firenze kb. 45 perc vonattal (nem érdemes autóval menni), és a f?bb toszkán városkák (S. Gimignano, Volterra, Siena) is 1 órán belül elérhet?k kocsival. Kés? estig / éjfélig pezseg az élet, úgyhogy csak azoknak ajánlott, akiket ez nem zavar. :)

We are happy having been you guests, cara Miriam. We loved this lovely house and the friendly people in Certaldo Alto. This place is recommended to all who wants to make a trip around Tuscany easy and to see as much as it can be possible. Easy connect to Florence by train (railway station only a few minutes-walk) , most of the famous cities max. 1 hour by car. Don’t miss the restaurant L’Antica Fonte and try ’sformatini’, you won’t be disappointed. Grazie mille, Miriam!

My best recommendation

  • 5 out of 5
I can recommend this beautiful appartment in the heart of Certaldo, which is really very charming. The appartment is very clean and nice. The host Miriam is very nice and helpful with every question. Certaldo Alto is charming and seems like the time didn´t pass at all. Next to the house there is a trattoria, where you can buy great wine, cantuccini, sausage and bread. All typical from Tuscany. You can park your car only few minutes by feet from the house. I could reach from there very easily all beautiful cities and towns of Tuscany. In few minutes you can reach by feet the railway station which has conntections with Florence and Siena.
I recommend you to visit Volterra, which is not so famous and very great. If you go by car please be prepared that the ways in Tuscany can be very twisty.
Like I have already said I was very happy to stay in this house in the heart of Certaldo and I can recommend this accomodation for everyone.

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
