Annalisa was incredibly helpful and responsive to our needs even though we checked in really late in the evening. Mrs Graciela was especially accommodating and caring during our stay at the unique house. Beautiful views from the house and its antique furnishing delivered a truly authentic experience of staying in the countryside. Only shortcoming would be that it was rather hot indoors during the day (especially in the summer!) as there was no air conditioning in the house. Apart from that, it was great!

What a special place. Exceeded all expectations. We were 6 adults and 6 kids and there was plenty of space for the children to run around and enjoy the outdoors. Quiet and beautiful, we spent lots of time outside and loved seeing wild deer leaping across the meadow in front of the house. Very well located for Siena. Thanks for everything.

Typical Tuscan country house with a beautiful view. Ideal place to stay for a group/ team. Great location to ride the famous, white gravel roads (Strade Bianche). Siena is very close.

The 11 of us in our group (three related families ranging in age from 13 to 73) absolutely fell in love with our home (Boschetta) at Certano and would love to return to this very special spot. But even if we are never able to return, each of us will carry the memories of this idyllic place in our hearts forever. The house was large and gracious enough for each person to have a lovely bedroom and use one of the 3 bathrooms. The kitchen was well enough stocked with equipment and dishes that we could cook for all of us and eat in the kitchen and dining room when we were not touring. The views from both the big windows in the house and outside in the gardens were glorious, everything was quiet, and the weather was perfect each day. We all enjoyed sitting outside to enjoy the tranquility, look at the grape vines and olive trees, and help ourselves to the herbs, plums, peaches, pears, etc, on the estate. Graciela helped us with everything we needed and gave us an extensive and delightful tour of the Certano estate. The tranquility was so relaxing and will always be remembered by each member of our group. Certano is well located in a small village that is very close to the delightful city of Siena. and it is a perfect home base to travel out of to any of the surrounding cities of Tuscany. In short, our visit to Certano was a perfect opportunity to understand what it means to live in a Tuscan villa under the Tuscan sun.

Very welcoming accommodation, especially for a group - we were 9 adults. The rooms are comfortable and there is a nice fireplace around which people can gather and have breakfast. Mrs. Gacriela was very kind, she provided us with plenty of information. Also, Mrs. Annalisa, was also responsive to various emails.

My name is Annalisa Baldassarrini, I am a descendant of the Baldassarrini family who lived for centuries in the estate of Certano. I'm responsible for the management, maintenance and care of the houses and apartments that we rent. Fishing out things here and there from the rooms of the ancient villa of Certano, I tried to restore the flavor of the houses. In the days when I was a little girl and I used to go and visit the farmers in the houses we now open to tourists. I really like going to the flea markets in search of old objects and furniture to embellish our homes and create a true Tuscan atmosphere. I enjoy growing lavander and love creativity in general, and in the store I opened under the stable I create scented sachets and various crafts to offer to our guests. I'm keen on painting, decoupage, embroidery and creativity in general. Certano makes me feel good because it enhances my artistic side!
