For a true taste of Tuscan countryside, come visit us at Fattoria Bassetto, in Certaldo. One hour away from Florence city centre by train / car.
Certaldo is situated in a beautiful region of vineyards, olive groves and medieval towns in Tuscany.

Our family home was formerly a convent of Benedictine monks that was always open to pilgrims passing through. Most recently it was a working farm producing local wine and oil.

We want our guesthouse to be unique in terms of setting and location, a place you would want to return to at night and somewhere to relax from city tours. Meander through landscapes sculpted by sunflowers, rolling hills and farms on foot, bicycle or mini-van (June-Sept). Or day trip by public transport to see the splendours of Florence, Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano and other towns which are less than an hour away.

You can try your hand in the communal kitchen with Tuscan recipes from our cooking classes, sample local wines, or do little more than put your feet up by the swimming pool and enjoy the views and Tuscan life.

There is something for everyone here. We look forward to seeing you in Certaldo.Meander through landscapes, rolling hills and farms on foot, bicycle or mini-van (June-Sept). Great location for day trips to Florence, Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano, Volterra, all less than 1 hour away.

Available activities: cooking classes, wine tastings, relaxing by swimming pool!
Prices are per person per night.
