About this listing
The apartment called GRANAINO is located on the second floor in a wing of the villa in the estate of Certano.
It has a double bedroom, a living room with two sofa beds, a kitchen and a bathroom.
From the room you can enjoy a beautiful view of the rooftop garden of the villa and the kitchen window overlooks the courtyard with its ancient Romanesque church and the stunning countryside views.
The Estate of Certano includes the main villa with its elegant roof garden and orangery, the apartments in the wing of the villa, the houses once inhabited by farmers and now renovated for tourism, the old Stable, the vinery, the antique Romanesque church, the porch with the well and the wood-burning oven, the park with its majestic cedar trees and the land cultivated with vineyards, olive groves and orchards.
From the apartment you can enjoy a beautiful view of the century-old cedar trees of the park and the surrounding countryside.
The house was renovated in a typical rustic Tuscan style, respecting the old tradition, embellished with elegant touches.
The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing, a few steps from Siena and the nearby village of Costalpino where you can find all you may need: bar, newsagent, post office, supermarket, bakery, beauty center, yoga center, pharmacy, tobacconist, haberdashery, ATM.
About a kilometer from Costalpino, on the main road, there is a convenient bus stop from where to reach Siena, famous place of tourist and historical attractions.
The tranquility of the apartment and at the same time its proximity to Siena make GRANAINO the ideal destination for a relaxing and cultural holiday.

The apartment was wonderful! We loved the view. And Siena was an easy drive. Three of us were staying and we thought that there was plenty of room. Annalisa was easy to reach when necessary.
Fantastic and absolutely beautiful! We LOVED staying in the Tuscany countryside and being able to visit Siena by day. Highly recommended.
The apartment was very large, beautiful, and had great views. Though a little tricky to find, the hillside location was great. The site was very quite and the staff very friendly. We loved it and would happily stay there again.
The apartment at the Cozy Tuscan Attic was just what we wanted. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We were able to cook when we wanted. Graciella was wonderful. She was always available to answer questions and arranged a tour to San Gimagnano, Montreriggioni, and a very nice wine tasting. The location is very convenient to Siena and other locations in Tuscany. If you have a car, this is a great place to stay.
Very friendly lady at reception. Nice surroundings and excellent location for sightseeing. A car is a must in this area.
The place is a bit small for 4, ok for our 2 night stay. The couches pictured are sofa beds of average comfort but do the job. We cooked dinner there, the kitchen was sufficient. Wifi connectivity exists at one corner of the apartment which was a bonus as we weren't expecting it at all.
I'd recommend this place - a pleasant stay and excellent position to access all of Tuscany.
The "Attic" apartment is located close to the city of Siena (6 km - 4 miles) and yet as we drove onto the access road we felt we entering rural Tuscany. The surroundings are beautiful and peaceful. We chose this location because of the beautiful setting of course but also for the quick access to main freeways when we needed them to drive to farther locations such as the lovely Assisi.
La nostra famiglia aveva affittato questa mansarda per trascorrere il Capodanno insieme ad un gruppo di amici che si trovava nel vicino casale "Il Boschetto". La mansarda era anche più bella che nelle foto, in particolare la camera da letto. La s.ra Graciela ci ha accolto con cordialità ed è stata disponibile in ogni momento. L'unico inconveniente è dipeso dalla temperatura estremamente bassa raggiunta tra il 31/12 ed il 01/01 (-7° la notte del 31). Pur essendo stato acceso il riscaldamento in anticipo rispetto al nostro arrivo, durante la notte abbiamo sofferto un po' il feddo, nonostante la disponibilità di coperte supplementari. Ottima la posizione rispetto a Siena (10 min in auto) e ad alle altre splendide località da visitare nei dintorni ((website hidden).:siamo stati anche a Monteriggioni)

About the Host, Annalisa
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!
