About Miriam

Hi. My name is Miriam. I was born and live in Certaldo with my husband Carlo. For many years I have hosted guests coming from all over the world in our farmhouse apartments and in our Certaldo Alto village home. We are happy to say that we get many repeat visitors who often bring their friends and relatives back to experience the true Tuscan experience with them here with us.

I love traveling, reading, art, music, and especially being with my three grandchildren.

Miriam purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Miriam chose Gambassi Terme

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 olive groves, vineyards and tree.

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.

A wonderfully relaxing stay in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderfully clean and welcoming. Miriam and Carlo could not have been more welcoming and went above and beyond their remit when we had difficulties with our rental vehicle in that Carlo came to rescue us and help communicate with various repair services. The view from the property is outstanding and our entire visit hugely relaxing.

Sehr schöne Wohnung - absolute Ruhe - TIPP

  • 4 of 5

Sehr schöne Wohnung, abgeschieden in den Weinbergen. Absolute Ruhe - Erholung pur.

Die Wohnung ist großzügig bemessen, mit Ausnahme der Dusche.

Geschmackvoll eingetrichtet mit antiken Möbeln. Die Terrasse mit Blick ins Tal und auf die Weinberge ist genial und ein echtes Highlight. Ein paar Meter oberhalb des Hauses hat man einen schönen Blick auf die Türme von San Gimignano (Luftlinie ca. 10 km). Das Haus ist tatsächlich so schön, wie's auf den eingestellten Bilder zu sehen ist.

Die Lage des Hauses ist zentral gelegen zw. Florenz und Siena. Für Ausflüge nach Florenz, Siena, San Gimignano, ins Chinati oder auch ins Val d' Orcia perfekt gelegen. Die Altstadt von Certaldo ist auch sehr sehenswert.

Die Vermieter Carlo und Miriam sind sehr freundlich. Es fehlt an nichts.

Kleiner Wehrmutstropfen: die kleine Dusche und die Betten/Liegen auf der Empore.

Aber auf jeden Fall sehr empfehlenswert - ein (Geheim-) TIPP!

Wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable holiday in Tuscany and the location of the house was fairly central to the places that we wanted to visit. The views from the house were breathtaking, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees and it was so peaceful and quiet (apart from the singing cicadas!). The house was very adequate and suited our needs. Miriam and Carlo are very hospitable and friendly and met us at the station on arrival to take us to the house, as we would of never had found it otherwise! A car is definite must as nothing is really a walk away. We particularly liked the pizzeria down the road which was very good value for money and tasty! Thank you very much for making our holiday so enjoyable.

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.
