Dear travellers ...
For a true taste of Tuscany and the "bella vita"
in an authentic XIVth century setting, visit us at the
We are located in Certaldo, right in the heart of Tuscany, a beautiful region
of vineyards, olive groves and medieval towns.
Our family home was formerly
a convent of Benedictine monks that was always open
to pilgrims passing through. Most recently it was a
working farm producing local wine and oil.
In 1998 we opened Fattoria Bassetto again to travellers
with the same notion of hospitality as the monks centuries
ago and with ideas based on what we saw in guesthouses
overseas during our own travels.
We wanted our guesthouse to be unique in terms of setting
and location, a place you would want to return to at
night and somewhere to relax from city tours.
Meander through landscapes sculpted by sunflowers, rolling
hills and farms on foot, bicycle,
horseback or mini-van.
Or day trip by public transport to see the splendours
of Florence, Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano and other towns
which are less than an hour away.
You can try your hand in the communal kitchen with Tuscan
recipes from our cooking
classes, sample local wines in our cantina (wine
cellar), or do little more than put your feet up by
pool and enjoy the views and Tuscan life.
There is something for everyone here.
look forward to seeing you in Certaldo.
Ciao from Dafne and her sons
.... and ciao from Otto&Violetta!
is a world where people are met, friendships made and
memories taken away.."
