Reviewed April 19, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We, a family of five, have just returned home after the most wonderful week in Tuscany. Certaldo Alto stole our hearts. It is a beautiful, unspoilt medieval town steeped in history, with lovely authentic Italian restaurants. We enjoyed 3 delicious meals at 3 different restaurants. Other meals we had while exploring the area or by getting supplies from the Coop supermarket in lower Certaldo.
On the first day the owner had advised us to meet her in the car park at the train station in the lower town, from there we followed in our hire car to the appartment. This is advisable as the TomTom would never have taken us on the right road! We were able to park in private inner courtyard with electric gates. The owners were so welcoming and friendly; although they spoke only basic English and we knew even less Italian, we communicated fine using sign language and a English to Italian translation app!
The appartment itself is stunning and the photographs don't do it justice...walking into the passageway that lead to it, was like stepping back in time (yes, it is in an actual Palace!). The apartment is large, modern and comfortable; tastefully designed on different levels to make the most of the medieval features.
The location of the property was ideal. Certaldo has direct train links to Florence (Firenze) and to Siena. The station is a 10 minute walk away (down a very steep hill!), alternatively, there is a funicular railway that links Certaldo Alto to the lower town for only €1.30 or €1.50 return. It would be possible to enjoy a holiday without a hire car, however, we had amazing days exploring Tuscany in the hire car. San Gimignano was incredible, a fairytale town! The Chianti region was full of hidden treasures... Monteriggioni, Castellina, Radda and Vertine all lovely places to visit.
It was a privilege to stay in this appartment; a truly wonderful week, with memories to treasure.
