via Tavolese, 132, 50052 Certaldo (Florence)
A small family-run agriturismo producing wine and oil, just outside the town of Marcialla, in the commune of Certaldo.
The ideal spot to relax and discover life in the countryside, up close with animals and nature, enjoying home grown produce served by the owners in the post-harvest dinner.
The careful renovation of farm buildings dating back to the Middle Ages has created 3 apartments, Ginestra, Giaggiolo and Lilla, which enjoy access to the garden with barbecue and tables and chairs for dining outdoors.
The small hamlet also offers a scenic swimming pool with views of the medieval Santa Maria Novella castle and a small pine grove offering refreshing shade in the summer heat.
The farm is home to barnyard animals, a small herd of goats, two dogs and three cats.
500 metres from the agriturismo you’ll find the small town of Marcialla with its grocery store, bakery and two bars. During the summer you’ll also find a kiosk on the square selling pizza and spaghetti each evening.
The agriturismo offers easy access to Florence (30 km), Siena, San Gimignano (18 km), Volterra and other Chianti towns and villages.
Inform the agriturismo of any animals at the time of booking.
Owners will be held responsible for damage to property and persons.
We just spent 10 days with friends (6) in Ripa Buia, we had 2 communicating apartments (very practical). We appreciated the welcome, advice, availability and friendliness of Lucciano and Alessandra. The apartments are spacious, clean and well equipped.
The location is ideal for exploring all of Tuscany and especially for visiting the small villages (whose names are less well known to tourists) using the routes recommended by Lucciano.
We loved the pool to relax after our sunny walks and were amazed by the beautiful Tuscan landscapes.
We can only recommend a stay with Lucciano and Alessandra.

We spent three days on a farm with children.
I recommend it as a strategic base for visiting Florence, Siena and San Gimignano.
Luciano and Alessandra are special people who remain in your heart for their humanity.
We hope to come back soon!

Surprisingly pleasant appartment in a not too remote, rural setting.
We used it as a homely base for our daytrips in late March. In the holiday season, I believe we would have spend some relaxing time on the premises.
IMPORTANT BONUS: Warm hearted and kind hosts. We all feel we spent too little time with you, Alessandra and Lucianno! ....Arrivederci!
Hi, my name is luciano and I am 62 years old.
The photo is of me and one of my friends, Alessandra non compare nella foto ma Ŕ mia moglie da 34 anni, qui sono con un caro amico.
I have been working here for 6 years along with my wife.
As well as we cook for the guests, we take care of the crops, we rear the animals.
It was a desire to to keep the family business alive which led me to run an agriturismo.
According to the guests, the best thing about our agriturismo is the warm family welcome.
