Two apartments in the Tuscan countryside

Villa Santa Maria lies on the slope of a hill overlooking the Elsa valley in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. It is the ideal choice for spending a relaxing holiday amongst the natural and artistic beauties of this land, such as San Gimignano, known for its towers and the medieval village of Certaldo. Thanks to the very efficient motorway network you can reach the most important cities like Florence, Siena, Volterra and Pisa in a very short time and through the picturesque Chianti area you can also enjoy interesting wine- and- food routes..


The Apartments are furnished with every facility you could wish for your comfortable holiday. You can relax at home or in the large garden in the shade of an olive tree enjoying the silence of the countryside, and when our italian sun warms up a little bit more, you can be refreshed by taking a swim in the pool, gazing up at the surrounding hills. Have a good barbecue for dinner, and then a walk along the crest of the hill where you can see the towers of San Gimgnano. Towels for the swimming pool are available on request. The private parking is right in front of the apartments. Free wireless internet connection aviable.

Our commitment to always offer the best service and welcome for your holiday in Tuscany.

WONDERFUL! We used Airbnb to travel through Italy and our stay at Maurizio's was the highlight! Beautiful views, very comfortable flat, helpful and friendly hosts! We thorough enjoyed sitting on the terrace and swimming in the pool. We wanted to be off-the-beaten-track, so the secluded location (but a short drive to nearby notable cities and villages) was perfect. A great place for exploring Tuscany! Highly recommended! July 2017
Le logement proposé par Maurizio est très bien situé, il nous a permis de visiter Florence et Sienne, les grands classiques mais aussi les petites cités médiévales de la région et également la via Francigena. Le logement, bien équipé, est au calme dans la campagne toscane. Nous remercions Maurizio pour sa disponibilité et son accueil. May 2017
Ho soggiornato nell'appartamento Mimosa del signor Maurizio per una settimana trovandomi molto bene. Ottima accoglienza e interessamento al nostro soggiorno per tutto il periodo da parte di tutta la famiglia. Ambiente tranquillo e attrezzato di ogni confort. Ordine e pulizia in ogni ambiente. Giardino curato e bellissimo panorama. Consiglio questa abitazione a qualsiasi tipo di clientela. Vicino a molti luoghi da visitare. Difronte alla struttura un ottimo ristorante dove si mangia divinamente. Grazie ai proprietari per aver permesso che passassimo io,mio marito e il nostro cagnolino,una bellissima vacanza. Antonietta,Elmo e Leo. Settembre 2015
We stayed at the Mimosa apartment for a week in the middle of our Honeymoon and it was exactly what we needed. The apartment had everything we needed for a relaxing, peaceful break. The photos do the place justice! The pool area is lovely, although the pool was slightly chilly! Probably because it was the start of September rather than high summer. Maurizio is a lovely host, he greeted us with fresh figs on Sunday morning and they were beautiful. He is ever so helpful and we were sad to leave on the Saturday. There are many interesting towns within a short distance to visit (Siena is 30mins by train from Certaldo) and the area in general is very beautiful. We will definitely return at some point in the future! I would definitely recommend this apartment to family and friends! Settembre 2016
L'appartement est propre, la cuisine bien équipée et le panorama est époustouflant. L'appartement est situé dans un village historique agréable à découvrir de jour comme de soir et à environ 30 minutes de plusieurs belles plages. L'accueil de Massimo à été très apprécié. Il a pris le temps de nous donner de bons conseils pour bien profiter de notre semaine à Gavorrano. Un grand merci à Massimo et à sa femme. June 2017
