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.

ACCUEIL TRES CHALEUREUX ET VUE MAGNIFIQUE

  • 4 of 5

accueil très sympathique par les propriétaires qui donnent beaucoup de renseignements sur la région. Le studio, simple mais très propre, est idéalement situé, calme avec une très belle vue sur la campagne toscane. Il est très bien situé pour visiter toute la région. Encore un grand merci aux charmants propriétaires.

La Rondine apartment

  • 4 of 5

La Rondine is definitely in an idyllic position in the middle of Tuscany, making it a perfect base for exploring. Certaldo itself has everything you need and is close by, and Certaldo Alto is a little gem of history and typical hilltop town which remains unspoilt by too much commercialism.The apartment is spacious and traditionally furnished, the garden and view are peaceful and perfect for unwinding at the end of busy days.It is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves...nice!! It has most modern conveniences, our only comment for improvement would be the satellite TV...I know watching TV is not high priorty on holiday, but we couldnt even get teletext for updates on events. The owners provided great local information and ideas for trips, parking etc. The apartment was well maintained, comfortable and generally clean.

The main attractions are close by....Florence, Sienna, Volterra and San Gimingano and we also travelled to the coast and visited Populonia which was beautiful. I would recommend this property to friends and family, it is well suited to both couples and families. Thanks for a great holiday.

Wundervoller Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen traumhaftem Urlaub im Country House Nazzano verbracht. Vielen Dank dafür! Der Blick von der Terasse war einfach traumhaft- so wie man sich die Toskana vorstellt. Weinberge, Olivenbäume, Zypressen ... Und ein weiter Blick ins Herz der Toskana. Wir freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen!

Our perfect holiday at La Rondine apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stay at La Rondine apartment for 6 nights. The house is perfect and equipt with all neccessary conviniences. In front and arround the house there is unbeleavable garden and veranda from which you could see the typical Toscana view - vineyard, olive trees and wood. Country house Nazzano is a place where if you stay once you will want with sure to come back. It is located nearby very marvellous cities/towns in Toscana. All of them are not more than 40/50 kilometras far away from it.

The owners of the house- Miriam and Carlo are kind and always ready to help. We were warmly welcomed although we arrived late at night (11.00 p.m). Our child had a temperature and they suggested to reserve an our for pediatrician and even Miriam come and stay with us at the doctor.

We want to say a big Thank you to Miriam and Carlo and hope to see them again.

Our stay in Tuscany (Nazzano - Luciola)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this farm house ("Luciola") in april 2011 (easter holidays).

Our party was made up of one adult, one 12 year olds and one 10 year olds. Everyone loved the house and would like to go back.

Everything was clean and the renter (Miriam and Carlo) was friendly and helpful.

The location is perfect for day trips-to the mountains to the coast to enjoy dining on fresh seafood to nearby cities (Siena, Lucca, Pisa , Florence, San Gimignano, Certaldo and Voltera).

All in all, we can recommend you to stay in this house.
