An old fireplace in the heart of Tuscany between olive & vineyard - Il Pettirosso



Updated: 14-Oct-2016
kitchen-living room with bedroom-bathroom

Country House "Nazzano" is located in one of the most beautiful areas in the heart of Tuscany between olive groves, vineyards and woods. From here you can enjoy a magnificent view of the surrounding countryside and the ancient villages of San Gimignano with its Twin Towers of the fourteenth century and Certaldo Alto, in whose streets still echo the tales of Boccaccio's Decameron, maybe flavored by the exquisite onion of Certaldo.

Siena, Florence, Pisa are attainable destinations very quickly, by train or car. Volterra awaits you with its Etruscan ruins, Poggibonsi with its "source of the fairies", Colle di Val d'Elsa with its crystal, Monteriggioni with its walls described by Dante ...

From Country House "Nazzano" all of Tuscany is at hand, with its summer full of festivals, art exhibitions and music festivals

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, myself and 6 year old grandson stayed and could not fault this property in anyway at all. It was clean, well furnished and the views from the balcony were stunning. What could be better than sitting having your breakfast on the balcony and watching hawks flying in the valley below! The owners could not have been more helpful. The property is a little way from the main road. I am not sure what the bus service is like because we hired a car and anyway, it would be quite a walk to the main road! There is no oven in the property, but we cooked some lovely meals using just the hob. The surrounding countryside is wonderful. We stayed for ten days, but there is still so much more that we wanted to see, so will definitely be back. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Charming tuscan villa to relax

  • 5 of 5

Hosts Patrizia and Andreas were very friendly, kind and responsive to requests.

The apartment was exactly as pictured and described - beautiful, charming and comfortable. Location is perfect for exploring the best of Tuscany. Patrizia's recommendation to dine at Antico Forte Restaurant was a highlight, firstly the views were spectacular, food excellent, and the Certaldo Alto was by far the sweetest ancient village we have seen - better than San Gimignano! Thank you Patrizia for a wonderful memory making week in Tuscany xx

Wonderful quiet place in breathtaking landscape

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week of vacation in the apartment „Il Pettirosso“. The house is situated perfectly between Florence and Siena to visit the touristic highlights of Tuscany. To get there you need neither GPS, as the charming owner would meet you in nearby Certaldo to guide you personally to Nazzano, nor do you need an off-road car, since the (unpaved) little road that leads to the house is well maintained. We found the apartment beautifully furnished, mostly in traditional tuscan style, with all conveniences of modern life, however. In the well-equipped kitchen you had the choice between gas, electricity or microwave. Our absolute favorite was the loggia with its breathtaking view. It was really like living in a painting of the tuscan landscape.

We can't wait to come back.
