An old fireplace in the heart of Tuscany between olive & vineyard - L'Usignolo



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

Peaceful retreat in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 8 wonderful nights. Although the apartment is down a long bumpy dirt track, once you get there it is worth it for the serenity and the views. The apartment was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. It was nice and cool inside which was great as the weather was in the high 20s most of the day.

We ate breakfast and evening dinner out on the patio, in the shade of the loggia, listening to the sounds of birds and admiring the lovely rolling Tuscan hills.

We visited Certaldo Alto a couple of evenings where there are fabulous views over the countryside, and had a lovely meal in Antica Fonte in the patio restaurant.

We would certainly recommend this apartment for anyone who is looking for somewhere quiet in a lovely setting, but within close proximity to some places of interest, particularly San Gimignano, as well as other famous places such as Sienna and Florence, which can be easily reached by train from Certaldo if you don't wish to drive.

een smaakvol appartement met schitterend uitzicht

  • 4 of 5

In mei 2015 hebben wij enkele weken gelogeerd in het gelijkvloerse appartement l‘usignolo. Een bijzonder smaakvol ingericht appartement bestaande uit een grote woonkeuken en een grote zit/slaapkamer. En een kleine badkamer. Als kers op de taart heeft het appartement een overdekt terras uitlopend op een tuin met uitzicht op het prachtige Toscaanse landschap. Gambassi Terme is centraal gelegen; men kan heel gemakkelijk met de trein vanuit het naburige Certaldo naar Florence en naar Siena. Als men niet per sé op zoek is naar een zwembad kunnen wij dit appartement van harte aanbevelen.

Wunderschönes Quartier in perfekter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Schon zum zweiten Mal sind wir hier gewesen, diesmal im Appartement L'Usignolo im Erdgeschoss. Wir fanden alles perfekt sauber vor, die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet (sogar mit Spülmaschine), die ganze Wohnung geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Herrlich entspannend die überdachte Terrasse zum Faulenzen, aber auch zum Essen draußen. Wr lieber Essen geht, findet nicht nur im nahegelegenen Certaldo oder Gambassi diverse Restaurants, sondern nur 5 Fahrminuten vom Haus entfernt "Il Vento Mediceo", wo man köstlich speisen kann.

Wir werden ganz sicher bald wieder kommen, denn die Lage des Quartiers inmitten idyllischer Weinberge und Olivenhaine mit herrlichem Blick über die Landschaft, sowie seine Nähe zu den berühmtesten kulturellen und landschaftlichen Sehenswürdigkeiten der Toskana machen es zu einem perfekten Ferienquartier.

Das Tüpfelchen auf dem i ist die überaus nette Vermieterin Patrizia, die einem sofort das Gefühl gibt, hier zuhause zu sein.

Wir freuen uns schon auf's nächste Mal

Rural retreat in Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

The accommodation was very good. It was spacious and well equipped. The furnishings suited the property and gave it character.

The loggia as a shaded eating area outside was superb as was the garden which looked out across the surrounding countryside.

The owner, Patrizia gave us a very warm welcome anD she was very helpful.

Perfect Location to enjoy Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

This apartment in the country in a cluster of about 6+ other unique apartments felt like an island in the sea of vineyards and olive groves. At the end of a long drive bordered on both sides by vineyards, it was quiet and relaxing, exactly what we needed after a full day out. We walked the vineyard each morning discussing our plans for the day. Certaldo is convenient for train access to Florence, groceries, and a wonderful Certaldo Alta worth seeing. Good restaurants nearby and short drives to the Chianti region, San Gimignano, Siena, etc. Apartment is clean, comfortable, and spacious.

Es ist fast ein kleiner Geheimtipp, wunderschön und so, wie man sich die Toskana vorstellt, immer wieder.
