Loved this medieval apartment. Gracious hostess who provides all modern conveniences, advice and unexpected extras. We stayed here for 10 nights, including over christmas day. Was amazed and delighted to walk in on day one and find a christmas tree(beautifully trimmed) and other lovely seasonal decorations. Close to everything, quick and enjoyable walk down the hill to the lovely, clean, safe town of Certaldo...and Certaldo Alto itself was just fabulous. Close to train and other centres. We used both train and car to get around. My family prefer to get away from bustle of big towns like Florence and Sienna, so we loved waking to the sounds of quiet or birds and driving off for a days sightseeing, and returning to our medieval town in late afternoon. Lots of pleasant surprises in Certaldo. Highly recommend both Certaldo and this apartment.
