The space

The apartment is on the top floor of Villa Certano, just 7 km from Siena, and is composed of a living room with kitchenette, a double-bed bedroom, a twin-bed bedroom and a bathroom with shower.
From the charming apartment you can enjoy on one side a beautiful view of the roof garden of the villa and on the other a breathtaking view of the surrounding countryside and the ancient oaks of the Estate of Certano.
The apartment has been renovated and is the perfect getaway for an elegant and intimate stay in the Estate of Certano, with its villa, the pre-Romanesque church, the old cellar and the old houses that surround it.
My name is Annalisa Baldassarrini, I am a descendant of the Baldassarrini family who lived for 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!

We were met by Graciela who was very nice. The apartment is part of an agriturismo. The rooms are large, comfortable and clean. The surrounding is charming, but our stay was too short to explore. The location is very convenient to drive to Siena.

What a beautiful and historical place! Just being on the property is a pleasure - don't plan on doing anything else at least one day. Our space was private, clean, comfortable, and very special, and Graciella was a joy. We were next to the chapel from the 7th century and over the rose garden. View from every window and every bench is a postcard and it is cooler up there if you have to go during warmer times. Shower is not life-threatening as are most in Italy- not slippery, hand holds that actually hold, nothing trying to scald you by surprise, and towels that have been dried soft not as sun dried sand paper. Good on every point.

The apartment is very beautiful and spacious. It has everything you need for your stay, like kitchen and bathroom equipment. It even has a washing machine. The greatest thing was the garden. It's a big villa surrounded by nature. Graciela was really nice and we really enjoyed our stay. The local shop in Costalpino had the best Mozarella and sea food salad :) But they close for siesta, so either go there in the evening or in the morning. The last bus goes around 7 or 8 PM, it was quite convenient, takes you to the center of Siena. One time we had to take a Taxi home, the driver took the shortest way possible so it cost us 16 euros, in general, I'd guess it would cost about 20-25, depending on where you catch it. We are really happy with the place, strongly recommend it to anyone :)

Our stay in Costalpina, Villa Certano was wonderful. It was a great location for many side trips, Siena, Florence, Tuscany vineyards, Pisa, and Assisi. Each day was better than the next and our return home to the Villa apartment each felt like coming home. We also enjoyed the hospitality of our host - Annalisa and our reception person - Graciela, she was a real gem. We found 'Pasticceria Costalpino', a nearby bakery, to be a great visit each morning. You couldn't ask for a more friendly and welcoming place. We are sad we had to finally depart, but we would highly recommend this for future guests and may return in the future. Fantastic!

The listing description was perfect. Graciela showed us to the apartment and all around the grounds. She was available for questions and also had some helpful suggestions. Your setting and location are perfect. Great for day trips into the small towns as well as Sienna. From Sienna we took the train to Florence. That was perfect. We are hoping to return to Tuscany and will definitely book Villa Certano again.
