Certaldo Estate Rental Photos and Description

Max Beds: 28, Min Beds: 24, Double Beds: 12, Single Beds: 0, Baths: 13, Reference: 14694

Looking to explore the Chianti region of Tuscany with all the comforts of home—and more? This estate features four private villas for rent in Tuscany, two swimming pools, sprawling grounds and all the amenities indoors. How is this possible? One of the owners of this accommodation in Tuscany—with whom you'll share the property—is originally American, and she's furnished both villas for rent in Tuscany to American tastes. So relax! Lounge at this Tuscany vacation rental, take a refreshing bike ride to nearby Certaldo (we highly recommend exploring the Pretorio Palace), or take a day trip to Florence and beyond!

(300,000 m2)

Enter the estate of this historic 14th century villa via a private gate and find yourself in a garden filled with cypress, pine, and oak trees. There are lemon trees and a covered terrace overlooking vineyards and the valley. Also on the estate you will find several barns, and an unused underground wine cellar. One third of the remaining land is a nature reserve—a wooded area inhabited by wild pheasants, rabbits, boar, and hedgehogs. Another part of the estate is used for olive tree cultivation, and there is also a resident horse that enjoys free grazing around an ancient Roman fresh water spring. Tenuta dell’Anima - 24 is the combination of four separate accommodations on the same estate: Villa Sella, Villa Certaldo, La Solaia, and La Vinaia. Villa Certaldo is on the east wing of a villa shared by the owners with its own private entrance, covered terrace (shared wall with Villa Sella) barbecue, parking and garden area. It shares a swimming pool (16m x 6m) with La Solaia, La Vinaia, and the owners of the estate. Villa Sella is an independent house with its own private swimming pool (9m x 4m), fenced garden and a spacious covered terrace with a table and chairs for ‘al fresco’ dining (shared wall with Villa Certaldo). There is a gate between the two private yards that can be opened. There is plenty of parking on the estate.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Our overall experience with the property was wonderful. I needed a place that would accommodate our whole family, immediate and extended family. The property was well kept and cared for. This place was large and private enough for our family gathering that it gave each of us enough time and space to gather together while still being able to have some privacy.

Enjoyed Most:

There is so much to like about this property it is difficult to highlight one thing. The individual apartments, the landscaping, the pools, the location and our host was so gracious and accommodating.

Surrounding Area:

The Tuscan countryside is so beautiful and charming. So much to do and see, not to mention just sit back and relax and enjoy the scenery and wine.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Certaldo was the nearest town. It was not within walking distance but it was a short drive away. The train station there provided ample parking with train service to many areas such as Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, etc...d

Tips or Restaurants:

We had an incredible meal at Osteria La Saletta which is one of the places our host had recommended. Excellent family run restaurant. Would highly recommend anyone staying here to go to. Plenty of local tours. I recommend the olive oil tasting. We booked through Viator.

Directions:

GPS did send us to the wrong location. Google maps was a better resource.

Check In Out:

Smooth check in and check out.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tenuta dell'Anima. The 4 villas in close proximity to one another allowed my wife's family together with mine to share a beautiful Tuscan experience in a relaxing setting. The memories will stay with us for a long time.

Enjoyed Most:

All 4 properties were very well maintained and generally in good shape. Elizabeth, the owner and our host, was very kind, gracious and helpful in many ways, even offering to pick up my sister in law from the Florence airport as a result of them being lost. Her hospitality was better than any 5-star hotel that I have stayed at.

Enjoyed Least:

The only improvement that I would suggest is in regards to the 2 pools. Although they were clean, we still found ourselves removing leaves before each use. Editor's Note: Due to the estate's rural, countryside location, leaves and/or garden debris may occasionally be found in the pool in between servicing.

Surrounding Area:

What is there not to like in Tuscany? Everything about the surrounding area was beautiful.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Nearest small town was Certaldo approx. 5 km away. It was within walking distance but given the lack of shoulders on the highway, we did not walk there.

Tips or Restaurants:

I would encourage all renters to ensure that they take day trips to one of the many towns. We found that alternating between relaxing at the villa and day trips to small towns, maximized our enjoyment of Tuscany and of the villas.

Directions:

Most of our guests were able to find the property using GPS. The written directions were good, but not great. I would suggest that the GPS coordinates of the villas be provided to all renters, in addition to the address, as not all GPS systems recognized the address. Editor's Note: All renters receive the GPS coordinates as well as the street adresses(es) prior to departure.

Check In Out:

Elizabeth, the host and owner, made the check in and check out seamless and effortless. No need for improvement.
