What makes this Apartment unique
The place is quite with such beautiful view and very well located for visiting Tuscan cities.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Beautiful setting. Wonderful host
My only complaint is we did not spend enough time there. We totally enjoyed our stay especially the first night with a number of guests for a homemade dinner. The unit we had was great and Alba very pleasant and helpful. Would definitely recommend. We would consider returning for a longer stay
thanks a lot and we wait to welcome you soon at la Certaldina for a longer stay!
Bring your own toilet paper
The villa had a nice view, simple but tasteful furnishings. The dinner one evening was great--authentic Italian! However, our villa had only a partial roll of toilet paper when we arrived. When we asked for more, Alba made a big deal out of providing additional tp. She said typically tha tit was purchased by the guest! What! The nearest store was a good 10-15 min. away. And the stores are only open mornings and late afternoons. We found this very inconvenient. Wasted precious travel time hunting down tp! We would rather have paid more and have paper products be covered.
I wish you would remember of your Tuscan holiday the beautiful panoramic view of your apartment, of the private garden, the panoramic and big bedroom, the big pool , the gardens….
At the check-in each apartment have 2 rolls of toilet paper and on demanded I do give extra toilet paper as I did with you I didn’t send you to buy it!
Sorry if by mistake you find only a partial roll paper, I will make sure that it will not happened again.
La Certaldina is a self-catering apartment, guests stay for a week or more and normally provide by them self about all they need for their stay.
Just to inform you that in Certaldo they are 2 supermarkets and both are open all day long, and one supermarket “Eurospin” is open also every Sunday.
As you can read in the other review many people are happy about my work, as I do my best to make people holiday easy and happy.!
Sorry if I didn't make you so happy, hope in a next occasion..
Everything I hoped for and more!
La Certaldina is a lovely villa on a hill with beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside all around, We could enjoy our view from our apartment windows and sitting in our patio area outside. Alba did an amazing job in helping everyone feel at home there. I chose this villa because I read a review about the cooking class. We were able to get a couple of us interested in taking it. I must say that was the highlight of my trip to Italy. Serafina did a great job in showing us Tuscan Cooking. We had a great time laughing and cooking. We were able to share what we made at a sit down dinner with other guests joining us. A wonderful evening of good food, good wine and good company. We were able to meet another couple there that Alba arranged for us to go on wine tours with in the Greve area. My husband was able to walk down the hill to stables. He had an amazing horseback ride through the countryside. You do have to be experienced with horses to do that. We enjoyed going to the hillside town of Certaldo. We found a great artist studio there where we purchased hand painted ceramics and an etching watercolor. Alba gave us another opportunity to socialize with the other guest at a wine tasting in the common room. Again we all stayed later and visited with each other. The location here is perfect for visiting other places. We went to Siena and San Gimignano. I recommend both places. We took the train into Florence one day. We were going to go to Lucca and Pisa but decided to enjoy the small towns around us instead. Highly recommend the little Trattoria in Marciala 5 minutes away. Alba had several recommendations for restuarants nearby. We loved the one in Certaldo Alto. The apartment itself was as good as it looks. Loved it. Nice to feel at home after a long day. We even had a fire at night. The perfect place for a Tuscan experience!!
Great accommodation in Tuscan
Our family of 4, with 2 children had a great time at la Certaldina. The way to get there is not that easy, but we get used to it. Great location with an amazing view, close to a very cut village Certaldo. Alba is very nice and very helpful. We definitely recommend the place for travellers who want to discover the Tuscany region.
Perfect tuscan accomodation
We recently completed a 10 day stay at La Certaldina in beautiful Tuscany. Upon our arrival we received a warm welcome from Alba with pointers for our stay re: sightseeing etc. That night we were invited to join a dinner prepared by guests from the cooking class on the premise. At Alba's instruction we were to eat like a big family and we did, with various people from around the world. (delightful).
Our suite was beautiful and the property so relaxing as we sat around the pool at times for some R&R.
The location is a perfect base for exploring Tuscany. Alba is a superb host making the whole experience feel like a warm family holiday and took care of any needs we had or information we required. We have highly recommended La Certaldina to friends and will continue to advise others of this little gem in Tuscany.
Dear Jack and Charlotte,
thanks for your nice review, I do my best to make all my guests feel good, like a part of a big family.
Hope to welcome you again.
All the best

We stated at Casa Vacanza for three days and had the best time. We traveled with two dogs and we found the villa and its surroundings absolutely beautiful. We were met by the owners of the place at first, a very sweet elderly couple and then by Alba, a wonderful woman who manages the place. Alba was really nice and introduced us and other clients to the local wines and olive oil through a wonderful wine tasting. The room was really spacious and beautiful, the large land the villa stands on gorgeous and the pool area and area for kids also great. The whole place was like a small paradise and we are already planning to come back next year but his time for at least a week. My hubby and I highly recommend this place.
