We were guests of Cris and his family for 5 nights from 29th Aug - 2nd Sept 2011 to attend a wedding and were very impressed with Il Pianigiano.
As previously mentioned in the reviews, nothing was too much trouble for Cris, he was very friendly and there was nothing we can say but positive comments.
The b&b was spotlessly clean and comfortable, the breakfasts were filling and set you up for the day.
We walked into Certaldo every day (15-20 mins) to catch the train to Sienna, San Gimmiano and Florence and used the local coop for the provisions for our evening meal.
The 'emergency wine rack' was a fantastic idea which we made full use of,as was the garden were we ate al fresco every night. One thing not to forget was mossie spray as they were def in biting mode.
The other guests were of various nationalities and really pleasant, and we managed to maintain the stereo-typical image of brits aboad in not speaking anything but english.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Il Piangiano to all, enjoy the wonderful tuscan sights and Cris's hospitality. The only amenity missing which would make it near perfect was a swimming pool.
Thank you Cris!
