Villa Boccaccio combines tradition with modern luxuryIn the heart of Tuscany is the historic town of Certaldo, the birthplace of the famous Italian poet, Giovanni Boccaccio, who is perhaps best known for writing The Decameron. Villa Boccaccia has quickly become one of Certaldo's most sought-after tourist hotspots due to its close proximity to many major attractions. It’s just 40 kilometres away from Florence (the art mecca of Italy) and Florence Airport; a half-hour drive from Siena (which is regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in Italy); less than an hour away from Pisa and its famous leaning tower; and just a stone’s throw away from the legendary medieval residence of San Gimignano.
Villa Boccaccio is a traditional Tuscan country house that has undergone some careful renovations. It has now been restored it to its former glory whilst still offering the same comfort and luxuries of modern-day accommodation. The Villa is located in the picturesque countryside between Certaldo and the legendary town of San Gimignano. The residence itself stands on a hill and offers beautiful views of the countryside. Nearby, you’ll find a number of renowned Tuscan vineyards, olive groves and historical monuments, as well as some fantastic restaurants offering unique gastronomic experiences.
Although everything is very close by, the Villa stands on a hill by itself right next to a medieval castle. And just like in The Decameron when 3 men and 7 young women came to the countryside to hide from the plague, Villa Boccaccio is the perfect place to hide from all the dangers of today’s world…
The interior of the house has beautiful brick walls and rooms with high ceilings that come fully equipped and with modern technologies. Thanks to its amazing location and unique Tuscan atmosphere, Villa Boccaccio is the ideal place for both short and long stays, whether you’re coming with family, groups of friends, or colleagues.
