Location

The house stands at the centre of Valdelsa, in the heart of Tuscany, just a few kilometres from Certaldo, the small town in the province of Florence where in the 14th century was born and lived the Italian writer Giovanni Boccaccio.

The historic centre of Certaldo, also known as Certaldo Alto, is situated atop a hill and can be reached by cable.

Like other Tuscan towns, Certaldo boasts Etruscan-Roman origins, as the many items found during archaeological excavations in the area demonstrate; however, the name "Certaldum" was mentioned for the first time in a document dating from the 12th century. The castle of Certaldo was one of series of strongholds built by order of the Alberti earls in Valdelsa to defend their properties from Florence. In the late 12th century Certaldo was defeated in the battle of Semifonte and fell under the control of the Florentine Republic.

Nowadays Certaldo hosts a series of interesting folkloric events: "Mercantia" - a street theatre festival renowned in Italy and all over Europe -, "Boccaccesca" - dedicated to food and wine specialties - and "A cena da Messer Boccaccio" - a dinner with traditional medieval dishes in the streets of Certaldo Alto.
