We don't have enough wonderful things to say about Miriam and Carlo! We stayed at this apartment for six nights and had a wonderful time. Check-in was very easy - Miriam and Carlo met us at the train station and had us follow them to the house to show us the way. They gave us lots of great recommendations on things to do and see in the area, and directions/maps to each major city nearby with tips on where to park. They also gave us a bottle of wine when we arrived! The house and property are absolutely beautiful; great decor and furniture in the apartment and gorgeous, well-maintained grounds. The apartment was very clean, and there was a well-equipped kitchen. It is clear that they put a lot of hard work and effort into keeping the house and property well-maintained. Overall lovely and friendly people. Would highly recommend staying here and would love to stay here again on return trips to Tuscany.
Nous avons séjourné une nuit dans le logement situé au 1er étage de la maison. Nous étions début juin mais en plein épisode caniculaire (35° à l'ombre), conséquence le logement était invivable. Nous sommes restés le plus tard possible dehors car la chaleur a l'intérieur était insupportable. Je n'aurais jamais imaginé une telle chaleur dans une maison de pierre. Nous avons très mal dormi. J'ai expliqué le lendemain matin à Miriam que nous ne pouvions pas rester. Heureusement, Mirian avait un autre logement de disponible et nous avons pu changer pour le rez-de-chaussée d'une autre maison. C'était incomparable, la maison était bien isolée et fraîche. La suite de notre séjour a été très agréable. Les maisons sont en pleine campagne, entouré d'un beau jardin, et offre de très belles vues. Nous avons profité de la situation exceptionnelle pour nous promener à Sienne, à San Giminiano et dans la campagne toscane. Grâce à Miriam, nous avons visité la ville médiévale de Certaldo qui est absolument magnifique.
Think of the quintessential Tuscan villa and Miriam & Carlo's apartment is it! We stayed for 6 nights and loved it! The view from the lounge window became our 'television'...We would sit and watch the countryside. Each room was beautifully decorated and the surrounding gardens were also beautiful. I highly recommend this place also because of its proximity to every major Tuscan town. Next time, I'd like to stay downstairs as it was bigger. However, for two people the apartment was perfect.
Miriam ha sido una excellente anfitriona, enseguida nos hemos sentido como en casa, la casa esta muy bien preparada. Es una persona muy cercana, encantadora. Se ve que le disfruta de recibir gente en su casa. El entorno es totalmente paradisiaco. La casa esta perfectamente situada. Es un lugar ideal para ir en grupo de amigos, familia donde cada casa tiene su independencia.
We had a beautiful and happy stay with Miriam at the countryhouse (upstairs apartment). The location is ideal for exploring the area and Miriam had wonderful recommendations (her itineraries are very useful). On our last day, she suggested Lucca, so we went and had a wonderful time. The apartment was clean, and beautifully, simply furnished. Our children loved exploring the gardens and we were able to let them run free. We ate outside several times and watched the sun set over the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. Wonderful holiday!
Miriam and her son Lorenzo came to meet us (find us - we were lost somehow) in Certaldo. We actually stayed in the apartment downstairs which has beautiful large windows looking out onto the picturesque fields of Tuscany - just lovely. Overall, the apartment was well equipped and pleasant. Our two children had a lovely time playing in the garden and play house and loved the little cat who came to visit regularly. We would have liked a little more lighting though. Certaldo, which was not mentioned in any of our guidebooks, is a pleasant town and the medieval centre is really beautiful and well worth a visit.
We had a wonderful time in the appartment and Miriam gave us a lot of good advices at the check-in for our trips to the nearest towns.
The rooms were exactly as seen on the pictures, they were clean and we found everything we needed to cook in the evenings after our trips to Siena, San Gimigniano, Florence, Volterra etc. which are all less than 45 min. away.
We would totally recommend this place for a stay in Tuscany.
Thank you again, Miriam!
