Make a holiday rental home or villa in Certaldo, Italy your home away from home

A charming medieval town, Certaldo is located in the middle of the Val d’ Elsa, in the heart of delightful Tuscany. Just half an hour’s drive from Florence, Certaldo is divided between a walled Old Town and a modern residential suburb, giving visitors a great mix of art, history and culture and modern amenities. This also means that visitors can choose from holiday rental accommodation that ranges from beautifully restored cottages to modern apartments.

Things to do in Certaldo, Italy

The medieval old town (known as ‘Rione Castello’) is the main draw of Certaldo, and can be reached on foot or by cable car from the main piazza in just a few short minutes. Despite some damage during World War II, most of the stone buildings are well preserved, with many of the principal residences facing onto Via Boccaccio.

The name ‘Boccaccio’ refers to the famous Italian author and poet Giovanni Boccaccio. Certaldo was his home town, and you can visit his family home in the Rione Castello. The red brick house has been restored with traditional furniture. A statue of Boccaccio can also be admired in the main square.

Another restored residence worth a visit is the Palazzo Pretorio, the home of the Florentine governors, which houses a number of 13th-16th century frescoes. This is the highest building in town, and offers some great panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

Certaldo is highly regarded for its festivals, with several held on an annual basis. The biggest and most famous is the Mecantia – a week-long celebration which attracts street performers and artists from all across Europe. A crafts and flea market is also held every Sunday.

Certaldo is conveniently located just 49km from Florence, 43km from Pisa, and 56km from Siena, meaning you are in an ideal position if you wish to get out of the countryside for a day or two.

Holiday at Apt. Corbezzolo, Villa Santa Maria

5 of 5
We enjoyed our two week stay at Apt Corbezzolo. The apartment was clean and cool, and had everything we needed. We were made very welcome by Maurizio and his wife and also by Giorgio. We enjoyed making use of the pool, although we are not really swimmers!. We loved the beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside, and we enjoyed our trips to Florence (by train), Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, and some of the Chianti villages. We hope to return to Italy some day.

Review for stay from 30 June 2018 to 07 July 2018

5 of 5
We stayed at the villa, which is a short drive from beautiful and historic town of San Gimignano for a wonderful week in July, 2018. From a location standpoint, it is an ideal jumping off point for people who want to see the real Tuscan countryside. An easy one hour drive from the Florence airport, the home is situated on a secluded hill with beautiful views. The home has a spacious three-bedroom private half which we rented. This half is where the pool is and includes beautifully landscaped terraces. The home is tastefully decorated and impeccably clean. Conveniently, the owner lives in the other half, but the two halves are completely separate, so there is complete privacy. Upon arrival we received a beautiful basket of food and kitchen goods, mid week there was a lovely cake and bottle of wine waiting for us after a day of sightseeing. From this house, it is a short ride to wineries, olive pressing cooperatives, small towns with pasta factories and much more authentic parts of rural Tuscan life – all of which we did during our week there. We were absolutely delighted with the accommodations and would recommend this villa to anyone wanting to see the true face of Tuscany.
