About Miriam

Hi. My name is Miriam. I was born and live in Certaldo with my husband Carlo. For many years I have hosted guests coming from all over the world in our farmhouse apartments and in our Certaldo Alto village home. We are happy to say that we get many repeat visitors who often bring their friends and relatives back to experience the true Tuscan experience with them here with us.

I love traveling, reading, art, music, and especially being with my three grandchildren.

Miriam purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Miriam chose Val d'Elsa

Country House 'Nazzano' is a old house farm in stone situated in one of the most beautiful, suggestive and undiscovered parts in the heart of Tuscany between olive groves, vineyards and tree.

It is enjoys a magnificent panorama on the surrounding countryside and the towers of San Gimignano and of the ancient medieval town of Certaldo Alto.

The atmosphere of our house is very warm and hospitable.

The view is unique.

Una vacanza indimenticabile

  • 5 of 5

Una posizione fantastica di la struttura, coccolati fin dall'arrivo dai magnifici padroni di casa Carlo e Miriam, persone splendide e alla mano.

Il nostro appartamento pulito, curato nei minimi dettagli ed esattamente coerente con ciò che desideravamo trovare per la nostra vacanza. Un posto accogliente e caldo, una vista mozzafiato dalla finestra della camera da letto su tutta la vallata.

Ogni sera era d'obbligo una passeggiata intorno al piccolo borgo per ammirare il cielo stellato mai visto così neanche negli atolli delle Maldive.

Consiglio vivamente questa struttura, ed è molto probabile che ci tornerò insieme a tutta la mia famiglia!

We spent a long weekend and were so pleased with where we stayed. Built into the countryside, this home was as authentic as it gets. It was in great condition. Very clean. The owner was wonderful. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a quite place to stay. We did lots of day trips - siena, florence, etc.

Nice stay in La Libellula

  • 3 of 5

We had a pleasant stay (one week) with our one year old child in apartment La Libellula. You should stay at this place for the location: it is a very quiet place in a beautiful surrounding and well worth places to visit are reachable in max. one hour. We loved the views and it was a great place to play for our child. Our terrace was located in between the two houses (not with the nice views on the wine yard) and therefore very windy in the evening. The renters are friendly and helpful. The pictures on the website are according the reality. The rooms are nice decorated and there was a high chair and baby cot available. The apartment has little stairs from the sleeping rooms to the living room and a stone stair is directly ending in the living room (including stair gate). We missed insect screens for the windows. The apartment was reasonable clean, but the (small) kitchenette could be improved: the (small) fridge was not only cooling but also freezing (!) and the cooking furniture (pots and pans) are of low quality. In May, we loved the sun heating our apartment, however, in the summer, the apartment might be very hot as it is located directly under the roof. We had a lovely lunch at Osteria Pinchiorba in Gambassi a Terme.
