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.

Chiedete alla signora Pirotto di mostrarvi il libro degli ospiti nel negozio "La Buca delle Fate": saremo lieti di leggere anche le vostre parole!
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)
Beautiful estate and great location if you plan to drive around Tuscany. Great service from Annalisa and staff. Just a heads up that this apt does not have a tv (who needs one when you're in tuscany?)
Nous avons passé 2 nuits à Costalpino où nous avons été bien accueillis. Le logement est fonctionnel et agréable. La ville de Sienne est très proche et facile d'accès. Nous pourrions y revenir sans problème.
Par contre, il serait peut-être utile de préciser sur la page d'accueil du logement le montant de la taxe de séjour qui est à rajouter au prix de journée.
My husband and I loved Certano. Our attic apartment was perfect for us. The pictures are very accurate. The entire estate is beautiful, the location is nice, and the caretaker is a perfect host. She had any information we needed and showed us around the property, including the ancient church on the grounds. We were slightly concerned that there was no air conditioning but it wasn't needed at all. We felt that having a car was an asset to us and would recommend it to others. We would return to Certano for a longer stay any time.
A few days before arriving, we were contacted by our host to say that the apartment we had booked had some problems with the plumbing, and would we mind if we were given an upgrade to a larger apartment. We were given good directions to find the place, and were very happy with the apartment and the setting. A great place to explore Siena and the surrounding area of Tuscany.
Tres bon séjour au milieu de la campagne toscane et tellement près de Sienne(6mn),le lieu est magique , on a l'impression d'être les propriétaires de ce petit château.
L'appart est plus petit que ce qu'il parait être sur la photo mais fonctionnel et très (website hidden) n'ya pas de terrasse privée mais des tables et chaises dehors. la vue de la propriété est magnifique.
La propriétaire et Graziella sont très sympas et accueillantes, un petit différent au sujet de la taxe locative réglée avec compréhension et l'aide d'airb
Balade jusqu'au château en 45mn, il est souvent fermé mais la balade est sympa.
Un de nos meilleurs souvenirs.

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!
