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.

    Cannot recommend this hostel highly enough! Placed in the beautiful vineyard landscapes of Certaldo. It’s the perfect getaway from the big city. Easy enough to take day trips to multiple cities but I couldn’t get myself to leave. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and that was mostly due to Phil and Jo who couldn’t have been more wonderful! Wish I had, had more time here. Book NOW!

    Bassetto made my heart happy; the people combined with the gorgeous historic building (featuring a fabulous kitchen) is a magical combo. It's homely and a great deal of fun, thanks to the tireless work of Phil and Jo.

    This is the best hostel I’ve stayed in! It’s more like a castle than a hostel. Friends Jo and Phil do an amazing job at running the hostel, socializing with guests and assisting with activities. I was traveling solo but felt like I had a family at Bassetto, cooking up the Bistecca Di Fiorentino on the last day was an amazing experience. You also must do the pasta class with Tommy! Beautiful, clean rooms, delicious wine and great company will have me staying here again and extending my trip!
