Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Charming apartment in an ancient building situated in the historical center of Certaldo Alto, a characteristic medieval village where the well-known poet Giovanni Boccaccio (author of the “Decamorone) was born and lived.
This apartment has been carefully restored preserving its original features as well as the ancient materials; the interiors are tastefully furnished and provide all modern comforts.
The owners of the property run an excellent restaurant (only a short distance away) offering nice recipes of the local tradition.
