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 2001

Why Miriam chose Val d'Elsa

Country House 'Nazzano' is a old house farm in stone situated in one of the most beautiful, suggestive and undiscovered parts in the heart of Tuscany between oliveyard, vineyard and wood.

It is enjoys a magnificent panorama on the surrounding countryside and the towers of San Gimignano and of the ancient medieval town of Certaldo Alto.

The atmosphere of our house is very warm and hospitable.

The view is unique.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is incredible. The views from the front of the property are stunning and there are walks around the extensive property. The accommodation is surrounded by rolling hills of olive trees and vines. It is about 4 kms from the nearest small town so you need a car but there are lots of beautiful small villages in the region to explore by car anyway. The hosts were attentive and generous and very helpful with information about places to visit locally. There is lots of space inside the unit and lovely high ceilings. The whole character property has been restored and renovated beautifully. Would definetely stay again and recommend it highly to others.

Romantic, beautiful, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Merveilleux appartement romantique dans la campagne toscane. Point de chute parfait pour visiter Sienne, Pise, Lucques, Florence et bien sûr, le chianti! La terrasse au soleil du matin avec vue sur les vignes: bonheur parfait. Miriam et Carlo sont des hôtes charmants et attentionnés. Nous reviendrons!

Awesome stay in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the best find ever! The view from the patio was amazing....looking out over vineyards and rolling hills of Tuscany, just beautiful! Miriam and her husband could not have been nicer. The grounds are pristine and the apartment was beautiful and just perfect for myself and hubby. The kitchen was well equipped to make any type of meal. Certaldo is a short drive away, with the train station right in town to get you anywhere in Tuscany. You are in the heart of tuscany here, with ancient towns nearby. Do not miss Certaldo Alto....many wonderful restaurants there.

Fantastic location and value

  • 5 of 5

La Rondine was perfect for my wife and I. You can't find a better price for such a clean and well maintained apartment. The grounds are lovely. The views from our patio and windows were exceptional. We got lost the first night on our way back from San Gimignanao, but Miriam and her husband were just a phone call away to direct us back home. It was cool enough in the evening for us to have a fire in the fireplace on several nights. We were happy to discover the old town of Certaldo Alto too. We took the train into Florence from Certaldo so we wouldn't have to be concerned with parking there. So much to see in this beautiful part of Italy! We were grateful to have this lovely accommodation to call home.

Schöne Unterkunft in schöner, ruhiger Umgebung !

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben eine Woche in der Fewo "La Rondine" verbracht, diese ist geschmackvoll renoviert, sauber und gepflegt. Sie liegt in der Mitte zwischen Certaldo u. Gambassi Terme (wobei ersterer der interessantere Ort zum Anschauen ist). In Certaldo findet man auch sehr leicht Supermärkte, usw. Die Gastgeber Miriam u Carlo sind sehr nett u. haben uns viele Tipps für Ausflüge gegeben u waren übers Handy immer erreichbar. Da ich auch im Urlaub gerne koche, hätte ich mir etwas mehr Küchenutensilien gewünscht, aber für 2 Personen ist ausreichend Geschirr, usw. vorhanden. Die Zufahrtsstraße zum Grundstück ist geschottert u muss langsam befahren werden, ... wir haben die Woche in Ruhe sehr genossen. Frühstück auf der Terrasse, inklusive! Certaldo ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt für San Gimignano (!!!!), Volterra, oder Siena (Dom !!!) und Florenz (Piazzale Michelangelo mit Panorama-Blick über die Stadt). Nach Florenz u Siena sind wir entspannt mit dem Zug gefahren.

La Rondine - beautiful views & nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was clean, well-equipped and nicely presented.Owners Miriam and Carlo were very pleasant and extremely helpful especially when I needed hospital treatment following an accident. The only negative aspect was the shower room - no window or extractor fan! However,before we left Miriam showed us another apartment in the same house which we shall certainly consider for the future.Good restaurants in the vicinity. Thankyou M&C for a very nice stay.
