We had a lovely stay with Christiano and his family. The place was quiet, very clean, and just a lovely spot in the countryside. We took the complimentary bicycles to go to Certaldo one night, picked big and sweet cherries from their huge tree (at least 2 kilos), had homemade scrambled eggs for breakfast and got many recommendations incl. wineries...

Attitude, knowledge, hospitality, food, information, acomodiation, location... perfect!!! Just not enough words to say how great it is. Whenever our road goes to Italy, we'll stop at Christiano and his beautiful wife. Thank you very much!

We decided to stay here for four nights after reading the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed. First of all, Cris was an excellent host - going out of his way to make sure that our stay there was the best possible and offering many very useful tips of where to go and visit. The room... More

We highly recommend Il Pianigiano B&B. The room was great, and the location is excellent for exploring Siena, Chianti and San-Gemignano. It is very convenient to be at a walking distance from the city of Certaldo (restaurants, bars, supermarket), but still feel at the country side with the beautiful villa and its yard which is secluded and quiet. Above all... More

We picked Il Pianigiano because of its central location for a few days visit to Tuscany, and could not have made a better choice. However, we also enjoyed the quiet surroundings, a nice very well maintained room, and we were made very welcome by Cristiano and his family - always ready with advice and suggestions for the day's outings.

The reason for selecting this place was its location as it is right in center of Tuscany. Christiano and his wife speak perfect english which is a... More

We decided to go to Il Pianigiano after all the good reviews that we read, and I must say this place is even better than they say. The breakfast is simply amazing, they keep on bringing food and when it's over you don't really feel like eating at least before the evening. The place is super clean and most of... More

Il Pianigiano is a wonderful small B and B in the center of Tuscany. Certaldo is a small town about an hour by train from Florence, but easily connected to other Tuscan cities like Siena and San Gimignano, which both can be reached in less than an hour by train. Il Pianigiano is a comfortable, spotlessly clean and hospitable. Cris... More

Nice rooms, good breakfast, garden og seperate storing room for the bikes. Certaldo is a perfect place to have as a base for cycling. Small city, and close to all other interesting towns.

We felt like at home. Special thank to Cristiano and his wife for treating us as their guests and making our Tuscany trip more enchanting. Great location and delicious breakfast served. Having the possibility to ride bikes over Certaldo and to see the landscapes going to San Gimignano was amazing. In general was an unforgettable experience, we'll come back for... More
