About the Owner
I was born and live in Certaldo.
For many years I host people coming from all over the world.
I am very pleased when they come back several times or get their sons or friends.
I love travel, reading, art, music, and especially being with my two grandchildren.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This place is incredible. The views from the front of the property are stunning and there are walks around the extensive property. The accommodation is surrounded by rolling hills of olive trees and vines. It is about 4 kms from the nearest small town so you need a car but there are lots of beautiful small villages in the region to explore by car anyway. The hosts were attentive and generous and very helpful with information about places to visit locally. There is lots of space inside the unit and lovely high ceilings. The whole character property has been restored and renovated beautifully. Would definetely stay again and recommend it highly to others.

Sehr schöne Wohnung - absolute Ruhe - TIPP
Sehr schöne Wohnung, abgeschieden in den Weinbergen. Absolute Ruhe - Erholung pur.
Die Wohnung ist großzügig bemessen, mit Ausnahme der Dusche.
Geschmackvoll eingetrichtet mit antiken Möbeln. Die Terrasse mit Blick ins Tal und auf die Weinberge ist genial und ein echtes Highlight. Ein paar Meter oberhalb des Hauses hat man einen schönen Blick auf die Türme von San Gimignano (Luftlinie ca. 10 km). Das Haus ist tatsächlich so schön, wie's auf den eingestellten Bilder zu sehen ist.
Die Lage des Hauses ist zentral gelegen zw. Florenz und Siena. Für Ausflüge nach Florenz, Siena, San Gimignano, ins Chinati oder auch ins Val d' Orcia perfekt gelegen. Die Altstadt von Certaldo ist auch sehr sehenswert.
Die Vermieter Carlo und Miriam sind sehr freundlich. Es fehlt an nichts.
Kleiner Wehrmutstropfen: die kleine Dusche und die Betten/Liegen auf der Empore.
Aber auf jeden Fall sehr empfehlenswert - ein (Geheim-) TIPP!
Great Vacation in Tuscany
Dear Miriam, our family (two kids, husband and I) spent a wonderful week at your apartment in the heart of Tuscany. Apartment is well-maintained and well-equipped. Front terrace has very nice view. It is very close to Certaldo and San Gimignano. Apartment is very suitable for families with children. Thank you for great vacation. Martina
We had a very enjoyable holiday in Tuscany and the location of the house was fairly central to the places that we wanted to visit. The views from the house were breathtaking, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees and it was so peaceful and quiet (apart from the singing cicadas!). The house was very adequate and suited our needs. Miriam and Carlo are very hospitable and friendly and met us at the station on arrival to take us to the house, as we would of never had found it otherwise! A car is definite must as nothing is really a walk away. We particularly liked the pizzeria down the road which was very good value for money and tasty! Thank you very much for making our holiday so enjoyable.
Romantic, beautiful, perfect location
Merveilleux appartement romantique dans la campagne toscane. Point de chute parfait pour visiter Sienne, Pise, Lucques, Florence et bien sûr, le chianti! La terrasse au soleil du matin avec vue sur les vignes: bonheur parfait. Miriam et Carlo sont des hôtes charmants et attentionnés. Nous reviendrons!
Awesome stay in Tuscany!
This apartment was the best find ever! The view from the patio was amazing....looking out over vineyards and rolling hills of Tuscany, just beautiful! Miriam and her husband could not have been nicer. The grounds are pristine and the apartment was beautiful and just perfect for myself and hubby. The kitchen was well equipped to make any type of meal. Certaldo is a short drive away, with the train station right in town to get you anywhere in Tuscany. You are in the heart of tuscany here, with ancient towns nearby. Do not miss Certaldo Alto....many wonderful restaurants there.
Fantastic location and value
La Rondine was perfect for my wife and I. You can't find a better price for such a clean and well maintained apartment. The grounds are lovely. The views from our patio and windows were exceptional. We got lost the first night on our way back from San Gimignanao, but Miriam and her husband were just a phone call away to direct us back home. It was cool enough in the evening for us to have a fire in the fireplace on several nights. We were happy to discover the old town of Certaldo Alto too. We took the train into Florence from Certaldo so we wouldn't have to be concerned with parking there. So much to see in this beautiful part of Italy! We were grateful to have this lovely accommodation to call home.
