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 find a home away from home, where 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. In the evening you can take a stroll to the vineyards to watch the sunset over Certaldo Alto, our local medieval town, and at night you can sit in the garden watching the stars and chatting with your fellow guests while being surrounded by fireflies.
Bassetto Guesthouse was formerly a convent of Benedictine monks that was always open to pilgrims passing through. In 1998, our family reopened Bassetto Guesthouse 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 couples and families in our private rooms and apartments, 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 separate kitchens and common areas.
Explore through landscapes sculpted by sunflowers, rolling hills and farms either on foot, bicycle, or horse. Day trips by train are easy from Certaldo so you can go exploring the big cities and see the splendours of Florence, Siena, and Pisa all of which are within an hour.
We organise and run a number of activities from a fresh pasta cooking class with a local chef, to day trips to San Gimignano, Lucca, Volterra, local waterfalls and of course wine tasting!
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 offer a free pick up from Certaldo train station at 5pm (if booked 24 hours in advance and subject to availability) We also do a drop off at Certaldo station at 9:30am every morning (except Sunday when the drop off is at 9am)

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. View House Rules

    I can’t emphasize enough how much I enjoyed my time here. I was a little bit hesitant at first because of the distance from Florence, but the location was one of the best things about it. Thank you so much to Stephan, Manuel, and Veronica for making this place feel like home. This place truly is one of a kind.

    It’s in the suburbs of Tuscany so it’s definitely different but it’s very special in that way. I had a blast just slowing the pace down with Stefan and Manuel and the manager Tanya. If you’re looking for something special 110% recommend

    The Bassetto Guesthouse was an incredible experience in the Tuscan Countryside where you are equally able to relax completely in the sun and go out for the night. Loved my stay. Tania, Manuel, and Stephan are great.

    Must go! A great place in a small Tuscan town. Really easy to meet fellow travelers and arrange a group dinner (cooking or in town). Good location to explore Tuscany. The property is very unique and it was very clean! Well run hostel.

    Bassetto Guesthouse is a dream from start to finish. I went for a 4 night stay and loved it so much I ended up returning just 3 weeks later to stay another 7 days! The house, pool, gardens, surrounding vineyards, gorgeous dogs and cats, this place is perfect for chilling out and reading books, bike riding, drinking wine, cooking; a sun-kissed Call Me By Your Name vibe. Jo & everyone who works there is so friendly and you really feel like you’re welcomed into a family when you stay at Bassetto.

    This hostel is a great base for exploring the Chianti region. Certaldo Alto walking distance and really good food and local feel. Tanja the hostess was very helpful and gave me lifts to San Gimignano (highlight). Relaxed atmosphere in the hostel, met lots of people and space to chill by the pool etc. Can use a bike to get to the supermarket. Many winery’s in the area to visit, and Florence/Siena accessible by public transport. Would be handy to have rental car. Overall excellent experience.

    Becky and Sophie - wonderful little place. We’d booked a dorm room but they’d upgraded us to the guesthouse to a private room. The place was lovely and amenities were fantastic- like being at home, lovely sofa area and books everywhere! Really lovely building. Jo the manager was fantastic, so accommodating. Genuinely very sad we only stayed for one night - would definitely come back!!
