Borgo Villa di Certano offers both rural houses and private flats, all of which have been renovated and furnished for pleasant holidays. The accommodations are located in a panoramic and quiet position, yet close to Siena. Connected to the villa and enclosed between the buildings is a small pre-Romanesque church, which already existed in the 8th century AD and was built at the behest of the Lombard king Liutprando.
In the surrounding lands, Sangiovese, Merlot, Canaiolo, Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes are cultivated, and are carefully selected during the harvest season. These are used to produce Chianti dei Colli Senesi DOCG, Vin Santo, and IGT wine. In late autumn, with the harvesting and pressing of the olives, we produce one of the world’s finest extra virgin olive oils. Inside the Borgo, far from the noise and hustle and bustle of the city, you can rediscover the ancient sounds and flavours of rural life in times gone by.
The Borgo Villa di Certano is only 7 km from the centre of Siena, and overlooks the heart of the Chianti Colli Senesi. Either in our rural houses or in the private flats, a peaceful and quiet stay awaits you. Immersed in Tuscan nature, Villa Certano has been owned by the Baldassarrini Macinell family for generations. During the Renaissance, it was owned by the famous Sienese painter and architect Lorenzo di Pietro Vecchietta, who made his home here.
Do not miss a visit to the ancient Romanesque church dedicated to St Michael Archangel. Built in the 13th century on top of the pre-existing Longobard church. Today it is the private chapel of Borgo Villa di Certano and is only available for Protestant or symbolic weddings. For Catholic rites, not far away is the church of Ponte allo Spino, where Catholic weddings can be celebrated.
The two large frescoed halls on the ground floor of the Villa are very elegant and ideal for various types of events. Certano relies on a trusted caterer, but offers ample freedom on the choice of other caterers.
