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.
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, Lucca and the beach 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 (subject to availability, and excluding Thursday) at 5pm, and drop off (9:30am, except Sunday when the drop off is at 9am) 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. View House Rules

    What's left to say but this stay was amazing. Not to repeat but you definitely have to do the pasta class. Try and wake up early and take the bus/train to the waterfalls (worth the trip). Very welcoming/family oriented environment. Jo and Rachel were sensational. They love their jobs. Its out of the city but 100% worth the trip. Everyone extends so be warned. Huge family room, great to make own meals. Wine is shared at night. Great people, good times.

    Bassetto is so much more than a place to stay. There is a wonderful sense of community and the activities offered are well worth doing. I arrived late at night, walked from the train station for 20 minutes, and another guest helped me find my room and get settled. This is the perfect place to get out of the cities and stay in the Tuscan countryside with easy access by train to Florence and Sienna. Thank you Jo for keeping the whole place running smoothly!!

    Really wonderful place. Physically stunning location, lots of activities to do run by the hostels (pasta class and wine tour a must), and a close day trip to many other Tuscan towns. Jo the manager really makes the whole experience very special. Would recommend to all travellers.

    The Bassetto Guesthouse is such a special hostel in such a beautiful part of the world. The staff and environment make it perfect for solo travelers who want to meet likeminded people while drinking wine in the middle of Tuscany. People love this hostel so much that the dorms are just filled with travelers who extended their stays multiple nights in order to linger at this amazing place a bit longer. I truly could not recommend it more!

    First of all I think it’s ridiculous that Hostel world only gives you 500 characters to write about all of the amazing things that the Bassetto Guesthouse has to offer. From the second I walked onto the property I was warmly invited by both the guest and the staff! Jo, Serena, and Connor took wonderful care of the place. They were all so amazing to everyone! I have never been more sad to leave a place in all my life. Clean, great amenities, great location, an abundance of activities. STAY HERE!!

    Can’t describe how good this hostel is! The best I have ever stayed in. The atmosphere is amazing - the loveliest staff and everyone who stayed there become friends instantly and enjoyed doing lots of activities together. Very inclusive, it’s like staying in a house full of your friends! Great activities too and the location is beautiful. I extended my stay and so did most other people staying. 100000% recommend staying here, it has been a highlight of my trip so far.

    I loved Bassetto - ended up extending ny stay to 4 nights and still could have stayed longer. It's a beautiful, homey hostel with a real friendly vibe between staff and guests, we had such a good time and were able to experience some amazing things including wine tasting, pasta making, and swimming at a waterfall. Absolutely recommend.
