Aufenthalt für 9 Nächte. Die Unterkunft liegt mitten in Certaldo Alto in einem alten Palazzo. Mit der Wohnung kann der Turm des Palastes genutzt werden. Hervorragende Sicht auf Certald Alto, Certaldo Ort, in die Landschaft der Toscana bis San Gimignano.

Gastgeber freundlich und hilfsbereit. Verständigung auf Englisch war möglich.

Gastronomie in der Altstadt und im Ort reichlich vorhanden. Bahnhof innerhalb von 15 Minuten erreichbar, Verbindungen nach Siena/Florenz und Pisa stündlich.

Supermarkt (ca. 2 km) mit Auto erreichbar.

Beautyfull landscape and architecture, we were treated like king and queen, so close to transportation yet so far from tourist joint, this place was more than just a one night stand! Appartment is so comfortable and clean, people are so nice. Reserve early and get an appartment here you will remember all your life. Stay several days and take the train to Firenze or Sienna (leave the car there, it is so easy with the train) and don't forget Sangimigiano! ... so much to see in Toscany! Start with Certaldo Alto!

Wspaniałe miejsce w starym miasteczku na wzgórzu, piękny widok z apartamentu na miasto (nowe Certaldo) a z sypialni na prawdziwą Toskanię (winnice i gaje oliwne-zdjęcie dołączone do komentarza). Stare Certaldo w którym położony jest apartament ujął nas swoim sielskim klimatem i zabytkami na wyciągnięcie ręki ( dom w którym mieszkał Boccacio-twórca Dekamerona). Właściciele bardzo pomocni, przyjaźni i kompetentni.

  • 4 of 5

Glorious surroundings, absolutely fabulous welcome. Just amazing. The owner picked us up from the train station, his wife is lovely, a real character. She introduced us to the townsfolk and we couldn't have been made more welcome, in too many ways to say here. I am a single parent travelling with my teenage sons and they made us feel like we had found a second home - everywhere you look is beuaty and you are surrounded by warm, lovely people. Magnifico! The Palace is the most beautiful place I've ever been - really. Amazing. The funiculor is exquisite - obviously I can't praise this place highly enough.
