If you want to experience Italy/Tuscany from the inside where you meet and eat and live like a local then La Biscondola is the natural choice. The owner lives on the property and be grateful she does because we learned so much as we were treated like long lost family from day one. Nida Signorini (the owner) is a gem. She's warm, very easy going, a wealth of local knowledge and above all else, a resource with a fun loving nature. Case in point, Nida got my fellow musician friend and I several gigs including my playing the opening night at the Montespertoli Chianti festival where I met and played with some amazing musicians - who would go this sort of length or effort for a temporary visitor? Without gushing, I'll simply say Nida made our vacation something of a high point in our lives, without her we would have been tourist but instead we lived as any Tuscan would. She scheduled wine tastings, castle tours, meals, medieval town walks and so on. Someone going the extra mile in such a fashion is priceless.
The house is wonderful and has space for eight comfortably, we were three couples. Each room has a private bathroom and most have stand up showers. The grounds are open and the outdoor kitchen is wonderful for those lazy and late night meals. We used the grill several times and so should you. The view of the adjacent valley and hill top villas is stunning.
The location is perfect for local travel, Florence is an easy train ride and you can drive to some beautiful medieval towns for lunch or dinner. There's some good local walking as well. Siena is an hour or so away but visit as many local towns as you can especially Certaldo.
You'll have to stock the house with the basics and food when you arrive but that's all part of the fun as you'll learn to shop as the locals do. The Saturday markets are not to be missed, ask Nida about the times and locations.
Staying at La Biscondola was heaven for all of us and yes, we would stay there again using the house as a base from which to travel around the Tuscany region and beyond. It's not a plush resort with incessant pampering but rather a home where you can let your hair down, read a book, write a song, finish that poem, or just keep things breezy and fun with your friends. I strongly urge that you consider this home for your stay in this region of Tuscany. All the very Best, Eric from Newport Beach, CA.
Très belle maison. Dommage que la piscine était hors service.

We made a last minute booking and what a find, great accomodation within 25 minutes drive of Florence and just 10 minutes from the medieval town of Certaldo complete with it's fantastic restaurants. The accomodation is in top order, and the property is set in typical Tuscan farmland, with no other properties nearby. Gated and fenced we felt secure during our stay, the garden is well kept and we had a couple of great days lazing by the pool. A hearty breaksfast was provided each morning and your host is able to speak good English and was happy to recommend places to eat nearby, all of which turned out to be great. Thoroughly reccomended.
les paysages autour de la maison sont superbes , situés dans la Toscane profonde;
la maison :
les plus: jolies chambres grandes , propres, salle de bain dans chaque chambre
les moins: pas de salon , ni de salle à manger et la cuisine est trés mal équipée
l'extérieur : maison mitoyenne avec des locataires à côté de la location...vous n'êtes pas seuls
et la propiétaire bien que gentille est trés présente
une grande maison pleine de charme et confortable dans un jardin bien entretenu avec une cuisine d'été et une piscine très agréables ; Nida, la propriétaire est discrète mais attentive et charmante, pleine de bons conseils;un bon point de départ pour tous les sites à visiter, y compris Florence sur la journée et beaucoup d'autres sites (route du Chianti, San Gimignano, Sienne...) mais il faut impérativement une voiture
Firenze, Siena, Chianti, San Gimignano, Pisa, Monteriggioni, Certaldo, Montespertoli, San Casciano, Greve in Chianti, Volterra...
Other Activities: wine and olive oil tasting
