Hi. My name is Miriam. I was born and live in Certaldo with my husband Carlo. For many years I have hosted guests coming from all over the world in our farmhouse apartments and in our Certaldo Alto village home. We are happy to say that we get many repeat visitors who often bring their friends and relatives back to experience the true Tuscan experience with them here with us.
I love traveling, reading, art, music, and especially being with my three grandchildren.
Miriam purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Sehr schöne Wohnung, abgeschieden in den Weinbergen. Absolute Ruhe - Erholung pur.
Die Wohnung ist großzügig bemessen, mit Ausnahme der Dusche.
Geschmackvoll eingetrichtet mit antiken Möbeln. Die Terrasse mit Blick ins Tal und auf die Weinberge ist genial und ein echtes Highlight. Ein paar Meter oberhalb des Hauses hat man einen schönen Blick auf die Türme von San Gimignano (Luftlinie ca. 10 km). Das Haus ist tatsächlich so schön, wie's auf den eingestellten Bilder zu sehen ist.
Die Lage des Hauses ist zentral gelegen zw. Florenz und Siena. Für Ausflüge nach Florenz, Siena, San Gimignano, ins Chinati oder auch ins Val d' Orcia perfekt gelegen. Die Altstadt von Certaldo ist auch sehr sehenswert.
Die Vermieter Carlo und Miriam sind sehr freundlich. Es fehlt an nichts.
Kleiner Wehrmutstropfen: die kleine Dusche und die Betten/Liegen auf der Empore.
Aber auf jeden Fall sehr empfehlenswert - ein (Geheim-) TIPP!
This house in toscany was our best experience ever!!!!!
We where three adults and s baby.
Not only was comfortable, clean, with everything you needed include, also miriam and carlo gave us extra things for the baby, like toys and a baby chair!!!!!!
Miriam and Carlo are the most warm, nice and responsable hosts.
The house is really a daydreaming!!!!!! The beautifull view makes you wanna stay for ever!
We hope to return to this spacious, well-maintained and beautifully decorated apartment, "La Lucciola", in a restored farmhouse surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, just ten minutes or so outside the town of Certaldo.
Our hosts, Miriam and Carlo, kindly met us at the train station in Certaldo and led the way in their car through town and to the house. As you turn off the main road, a long driveway leads up and down the hills through the groves to the house. In the distance across the miles of farmland you can see the tall towers of an ancient hill town.
The country house "Nazzano" is divided into private apartments, and there is also a house next door and another just up the lane. We liked the feeling of being alone on our hill out in the country and still having some people nearby.
Mornings and evenings, my husband and I enjoyed the terrace of La Lucciola, with its splendid hilltop views and the grassy yard where pears, roses and pomegranates were growing. We walked down the country lane at twilight and gazed at the moon. The expansive, peaceful setting was very refreshing to us after staying the previous week in a city apartment.
Day trips to the many old hill towns nearby, including Certaldo Alto, San Gimignano, and wonderful Volterra, were very pleasant in our rental car. Each town has spectacularl architecture to marvel at, as well as shops, museums, great restaurants and amazing old churches. One morning we took the train from Certaldo to Florence and enjoyed the easy walk from the station to the tourist sights. Miriam and Carlo were very congenial and helpful with sightseeing tips, guide books and information on the local area.
The listing description for the apartment was accurate regarding the facilities, which were clean and modern with touches of old Tuscan style. The kitchen was fully supplied and easy to use. The bed was very comfortable, and there was ample storage space for our things in the bedroom and the bathroom.
We would certainly recommend this house to friends or family members looking for a lovely Tuscan getaway!
Schöne große Wohnung mit stilvoller Einrichtung - passend zur Beschreibung in der Anzeige. Tolle Lage mit Blick auf die Hügel der Toskana. Sehr nette, hilfsbereite Vermieter.
Nous avons passé une semaine dans le calme en profitant d'une vue splendide sur les collines Toscane ... Nous remercions également Carlo et Miriam qui sont particulièrement accueillants. La maison est très agréable et n'a pas pas le style impersonnel de la plupart des locations , elle semble avoir une âme , de ce fait nous avons eu l'impréssion d'être chez nous...
La situation géographique est excellente pour effectuer les visites de la région et le retour dans ce havre de paix est des plus agréable.
Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de cet endroit et notre fils a également apprécié de vivre dans cette campagne si belle accompagné de Carlo que les enfants adorent.
My husband and I were celebrating our Silver wedding Anniversary so wanted somewhere special to stay. We chose Tuscany and after choosing here we were offered this apartment. We were not disappointed, what a beautiful apartment it is too. It is beautifully furnished, well equipped, airy, spacious, clean, well maintained and in a stunning location down a winding road, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. On many occasions we saw pheasants wandering about and on one evening on returning from a pizzeria we even saw a deer.
The owners Miriam and Carlo visited on more than one occasion to make sure everything was OK and to water the plants. The advice given by Miriam on where to park in Florence was invaluable. She also gave advice on where to eat and provided a ring binder of useful information plus a basket of leaflets for day trips, local maps etc.
The location of the apartment is perfect, it is ideally placed for Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, and San Gimignano which is a must do day trip with its medieval streets, bag shops, ceramic shops and deli's. Don't forget to try the gelato.
I would definitely recommend this apartment and would consider staying here again.
