Nice and peaceful place. Situated in between florence and siena (50 min. to florence and 35 to siena). Certaldo is a beatyful small town, that although offers whatever you need!
Incredible buildings with a story to boot. I'm not sure that being 2 minutes from the interstate passes as countryside, but I did find the place quite relaxing. I arrived late my first night so there was no staff around, but it worked itself out. Had a bit of a problem with mosquitoes the first night, but some incense took care of that. More suited for people traveling by car than backpack I think, but certainly a memorable place.
I loved this place! After coming from Florence, I felt myself relax instantly as soon as I boarded off the train. I savoured its peacefulness, remoteness (it's probably only about 20 mins walk...leasurely from the town centre), simpleness, security, and it's surroundings. I could've just stayed at the compound everyday, just lazying around because that's what the ambience was! Be free! Stop and breathe and just be still! I love it!!!
Very relaxing to get out of the city for a while. Whole place was filled with mosquitoes, had to wear bug spray inside.
Best hostel i have stayed at! Awesome place, a bit out of town but worth. Great atmosphere and staff. Definitely recommend it!
I was seeking a true Tuscany experience when travelling through Italy. I stepped onto Fattoria del Bassetto's property and I was not let down. The history, the atmosphere, the people all made my stay memorable. If you want something a bit off the beaten path, I highly suggest staying here. The setting is quaint. The rooms are well kept. The people that pass through become like family - Fattoria creates an experience you won't get in the city.

The place is beautiful, and the rooms were very clean. I loved the pool and the big garden! My staying there was very relaxing, I enjoyed it very much. Highly reccomnded for people who just want to chill and have a good time!
If I were to replan my trip to Florence, I would choose to stay here ten times out of ten. For other travellers I met here and myself, our stay at Fattoria was a much needed break from city life. Clean and cozy. Lastly, though this hostel is away from the city centre, it is just a train ride away from Florence. The location is also great for a day trip to Siena, which I recommend. Perfect for a 3-4 night stay.
