Villa overview - owner's description

9 Bedrooms, 9.5 Bathrooms, Pool, Sleeps 18 / Beautiful villa of approx 500 sqm
set in a panoramic position with big garden equipped with private swimming pool.

The ancient villa is situated on the top of a hill, surrounded by the nature of Tuscany. The house has a squared structure, which is characteristic for this area, as well as a typical “pigeon tower”. Recently, the villa has been completely restored. A garden surrounds the villa and offers a breathtaking view all around. In the garden, there is also a swimming pool, promising extremely relaxing moments during your stay.

It is at a distance of approximately 3 km from the village of Certaldo, in which Boccaccio, the famous Italian writer of the Middle Ages, was born. In Certaldo, there are various shops, banks, a pharmacy, and a postal office. Montespertoli, the famous town of the wine, is at a distance of approximately 10 km. This little town is certainly worth a visit, if only for the marvellous panoramic road that connects Montespertoli and Certaldo. In all the area, there are excellent restaurants. The major famous cities of Tuscany can be reached easily.

The villa of approx 500 sqm extends on two floors, plus the pigeon tower.

At ground floor, there is a little living room, a spacious lounge, a large dining room, a completely furnished kitchen, a double room with bathroom (with shower), a laundry room, and a WC. Exit to the garden from the lounge, the dining room and the kitchen.
On the first floor, there are 7 double rooms with en-suite bathroom with shower each. The rooms differ from each other in the colour of the walls, the cotto flooring, and the view on the surrounding hills that each room offers.
A spiral staircase leads from one of the double rooms to the pigeon tower. Here, there is an additional double bedroom with en-suite bathroom (with bathtub). The room in the pigeon tower has two terraces on each side, which offer a magnificent view over the typical landscape of Tuscany.

Area Information

This enchanting Villa is situated close to the town of Certaldo .... Tourists who love art and the events of the past will focus immediately on Certaldo Alta, also known as “Certaldo Castello”, because of its altitude and defences. Everybody says that here the clock stopped when warring ceased and a more placid era of peace became established. “Certaldo is a castle placed in our countryside, which, although little, has already been inhabited by noblemen and the wealthy,” says the town’s most famous personality, Giovanni Boccaccio. To this illustrious writer Certaldo consecrates its memory. It is not only the house where he spent the last years of his life, or the library or the statues portraying him that commemorate his life. Walking through the streets, eyeing between the angles of these simple brick houses, between the open spaces and well-curbs, steps and loggias we can almost see some of the characters in the Decameron, ready to tell us a joke or whisper the latest rumour .The construction highlight of Certaldo Alta is the use of brick in all manner of shapes and all shades of red and brown. Drawn from the clays that cover the hills of Val d’Elsa, this ugly but very practical material was used for the construction of simple, basic architecture of clean volumes whether they were homes, churches or forts. Via Boccaccio, the axis of the upper town and taking the place of a main square, gives exactly that impression of unity of matter, from the pavements to the crown of battlements on the buildings.

What not to miss
here: the Praetorian Palace, on top of the hill, the church, the cloister and the convent of Saints Philip and James, where the tomb of Boccaccio is kept, Machiavelli Palace, which was his home-tower and other adjacent noble palaces, the three gates in the city walls and so on. To finish, the tabernacle of the Executed, reassembled in the church of Saints Thomas and Prospero, which served to comfort those condemned to death. The cultural activities of Certaldo are today carried out in the “Laboratori Polis” where educational courses are held to encourage appreciation of the Certaldo area and the importance of its conservation. Among the most interesting events, we should include Mercantia, when, during the last week of July, the old town is transformed into a stage where street artists, jugglers, clowns, bands and musicians enliven the days and, especially, the evenings by performing next to dinner tables of the best Tuscan dishes.

Apart this beautiful town, you can easily reach San Gimignano, the Tuscan city just as it was built five centuries ago and Siena one of the most typical Renaissance cities in Italy, with narrow winding streets leading up to the Romanesque cathedral set on the highest point of the town and the magnificent Piazza del Campo where the famous ‘Palio’ horse race takes place in July and August of each year.....
