Wonderful location. We loved staying here & having dinner on the roof of the tower.

The apartment is spacious and comfortable ( the staircase to the second bedroom and the tower could be a challenge for some ) It is located in the ancient town of Certaldo which has its specific feel and charm with all the restaurants, bars, live music and cafes. We particularly recommend the pottery workshop across the street and the bakery on the main street of the modern town. People are friendly and welcoming.

If you are willing to get up easier take the funiculare. Perfect location to get away from big cities and tourism! Amazing views, and exquisit vibes.

We really loved the apartment. The living room, kitchen and main bedroom are spacious and light and have a great view over the square. Everything is clean, comfortable and well equipped and the views from the tower are spectacular. My only negative comment is about the accuracy of the description. You have to rely on reviews to get a true idea of the apartment. Nowhere in Leonardo's listing does it say that the 2nd double bedroom is up a vertical ladder set into the wall. Even if it also hadn't been too hot to use at that time, our healthy 28 year old co-guest was not keen on climbing up and down to get to the wc in the night. Older people would definitely find it very difficult. The alternative is a room with ceilings so low it is only really suitable for children, though you can just get to the bed at full height. There is no photo of this room in the listing. I can't help feeling that if Leonardo was more up-front about the challenges this wonderful apartment presents, he would still have lots of guests but they would be a happier bunch and the reviews could spend more time on praise than criticism. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Leonardo's mother was welcoming and friendly and managed to explain and demonstrate everything perfectly without a word of English. The old village has some great restaurants and a funicular to take you down to the newer commercial town, and it makes a perfect base for exploring the chianti region and the rest of Tuscany. Private parking was a luxury too. Highly recommended accommodation for anyone able to appreciate its uniqueness.

For anyone who wants to live in a medieval castle for a while. Who does not care for a strange staircase or a low roof in one of the bedrooms. Who wants to have breakfast on top of his own castle tower, with fantastic views over Tuscany. In a heart-warming fortified town, with fine restaurants and the best ice cream in the world. With connections by train to Siena and Firenze. And Volterra, Monteriggioni, Lucca and Pisa within an our drive. And also horrible San Gimmignano, where the other tourists come for. The appartment is clean, especially the beds. Leonardo and his mother are fine hosts, who trust their guests.

This is a quirky apartment in a medieval hilltop castle. The views from the tower are stunning, but you do need to be quite athletic (and unafraid of heights) to enjoy it. Facilities were good but head height is definitely an issue especially for tall people. This was not clearly mentioned in the description. Despite that we loved the location and it was a treat to stay hear.

Wonderful apartment in a fantastic town. The apartment was very comfortable for a family of five with a bed to spare. The loft access to the tower was incredible and offered a 360 degree view of the surrounding Tuscan towns and scenery. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
