The villa stands at an altitude of 100 meters in Florentine countryside, near the charming village of Certaldo, a very few kilometers from San Gimignano and at the border with the Chianti Classico region.
Certaldo's ancient town center has maintained its medieval aspect. Particularly interesting are the church of Saints Jacopo and Filippo and the Palazzo Pretorio, which houses 15th-century frescoes and chinaware. Giovanni Boccaccio's house is worth a visit, as well. Boccaccio was the Italian artist who wrote the famous Decameron.
Every year, the medieval town hosts many cultural and artistic events, including an important international street theater festival called "Mercantia".
