One of the most evocative medieval villages of Tuscany and the Val D’Elsa area, Certaldo, the birthplace of Giovanni Boccaccio, has preserved a magical atmosphere of times gone by. The village has an ancient medieval core, surrounded by walls with 3 entrance doors: Porta al Sole, Porta Alberti and Porta del Rivellino.
The historic center of Certaldo is all pedestrian and can be reached on foot via an ancient medieval road or by funicular.
This property is just over 5 min. from the pedestrian historical center with access through an automated gate that opens onto a paved driveway, which widens progressively over the area in front of the house. Particular care has been taken in the restructuring of the Villa to adapt it to the anti-seismic regulations and to the regulatory constraints of the landscape.
On the ground floor of the main villa, a typical square plan with a dovecote, there is a kitchen, a large living room and dining room which leads through a large windowed door to the panoramic garden.
On the first floor there are 5 bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, in addition to the dovecote also transformed into a comfortable room.
In addition to the main villa, we find various outbuildings used as shelter for the machinery necessary for the maintenance of the property and of the garden plus a former barn of 60 sqm approx. used as a gym with a pleasant panoramic and wide front porch.
The property includes a large pool of 70 square meters.
Certaldo is located in a strategic position: it is equidistant from Florence and Pisa. Both can be reached with just over 1 hour, while Siena can be reached in less than 45 minutes. by car.
