Property Description

Welcome to Bassetto Guesthouse!

We are located in Certaldo, in the belly button of Tuscany, a beautiful region of vineyards, olive groves and medieval towns. This is the place where you will find a true taste of Tuscany and the 'bella vita' in an authentic XIVth century setting.
We are bringing Tuscany country living to the backpacking world. If you need a relaxing break from the busy cities, then we are the place for you. At Bassetto, you will be able to regather your thoughts while you relax next to our pool or swing the afternoon away in a hammock with a glass of wine in hand and then at night, you can take a walk through a garden while being surrounded by fireflies after you have had a dinner in our wine cellar.
Bassetto Guesthouse was formerly a convent of Benedictine monks that was always open to pilgrims passing through. In 1998, our family opened Bassetto Guesthouse again to travellers with the same notion of hospitality as the monks centuries ago. We wanted our guesthouse to be unique in terms of setting and location, a place you would want to return to and somewhere to relax from city life.
We accommodate everyone here, from the lovers on their honeymoon in our private rooms to the solo backpacker in our dorm style rooms. Our private rooms and dorms, are separated from each other across the yard, with their own both kitchens and common areas.
Explore through landscapes sculpted by sunflowers, rolling hills and farms either on foot, bicycle, and horse. Day trips by train are easy from Certaldo to go exploring the big cities to see the splendours of Florence, Siena, Pisa which are mostly an hour away.
We organise and run a number of activities from a fresh pasta cooking class with a local chef to day trips to San Gimignano and wine tour. When the weather is amazing, we can even take you out to Pisa for a day.
Bassetto Guesthouse will always make you feel like you won’t want to leave and with our friendly English speaking staff who are always able to help. We are situated in the perfect place to experience the real Tuscany.

There is something for everyone here!

We also offer a free pick up (4pm) and drop off (9:30am) service to Certaldo train station. More details will be sent to you in the confirmation email.

Please note, due to a tourism levy in the region, we have to charge a 1€ per night, per person tax.

We look forward to seeing you in Certaldo.

    Fabulous

    Bassetto is a place that you just have to check out when you’re in Tuscany! It is a good break from the city and located in the most picturesque, quiet place of town. You really get to experience the Tuscan countryside for all it has to offer, since day trips (such as Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano) are just a simple train ride away. The staff were so helpful and friendly and the people were the most social that I have ever experienced at a hostel. The perfect place for a solo traveller!!

    Fabulous

    The guesthouse is in a beautiful location and staff were friendly. Most guests were American or Canadian and very young (20-22), although a few were olderz I would not recommend this hostel if you are looking to sleep before 2-4am on any night - it was extremely loud and many dorms don’t have any way to block the noise. On one night there was a very loud wedding that went well past 3am.

    Location: - is in a gorgeous town Cleanliness: - showers were incredibly dirty. Especially the floors right in front of them. Weren’t cleaned at all during the 3 days we were there Facilities: - the toilets and showers are in pretty tiny rooms. Beds: - the sheets/linens were extremely uncomfortable - no locks on doors. No lockers in room. Tons of mosquitoes (though they have free spray) Staff didn’t stop the other hostel stayers partying loudly past 1am on a Sunday right out front
