About Miriam

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

Why Miriam chose Gambassi Terme

Country House 'Nazzano' is a old house farm in stone situated in one of the most beautiful, suggestive and undiscovered parts in the heart of Tuscany between olive groves, vineyards and tree.

It is enjoys a magnificent panorama on the surrounding countryside and the towers of San Gimignano and of the ancient medieval town of Certaldo Alto.

The atmosphere of our house is very warm and hospitable.

The view is unique.

Wonderfully Relaxing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

La Lucciola combines the quietness and comfort of a well-equipped country house with the central location to visit some of the most beautiful Tuscan places, Certaldo, San Giminiano, Siena, Volterra, Florence and the Chianti region. We came with friends and benefitted from the possibility of combining La Lucciola with an adjacent apartment.

The hosts were very helpful, met with us in Certaldo when we arrived, accompanied us to the site and always provided advice and suggestions.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and recommed La Lucciola unreservedly.

Tolle Wohnung in den Weinbergen-Erholung pur-TIPP

  • 4 of 5

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!

Beautifully restored farmhouse with vineyard views

  • 5 of 5

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!

un très agréable séjour

  • 5 of 5

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.
