Casale la Rosa di Certaldo is located in the countryside surrounding the small medieval village of Certaldo, in the heart of the Chianti area, halfway between Florence and Siena.
The village was founded in Etruscan-Roman period, but it was in the Middle Ages that it developed and prospered due to its strategic and dominant position overlooking Via Francigena, the main communication route between northern Europe and Rome at the time.
Grown from an old fort in the Middle Age, Certaldo has its own historical center to the top of the hill, which remained the same during the centuries.
Certaldo, however, is famous throughout the world for being the birthplace of one of the fathers of Italian literature, the author of the Decameron, Giovanni Boccaccio, who lived there for a long time and died there.
Moreover, Certaldo is the ideal starting point both for day trips to Florence and Siena, and for reaching other charming Chianti villages Chianti such as Greve, Panzano, Castellina, Radda or the Medieval villages of the Tuscan countryside such as San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Volterra.
