Beskrivningen av objektet

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 find a home away from home, where 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. In the evening you can take a stroll to the vineyards to watch the sunset over Certaldo Alto, our local medieval town, and at night you can sit in the garden watching the stars and chatting with your fellow guests 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 reopened Bassetto Guesthouse 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 couples and families in our private rooms and apartments, 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 separate kitchens and common areas.

We are currently running only the Dorm Side of the Guesthouse for a total of 25 beds, as the Private Rooms & Apartments are currently given to Association who takes care of Ukranian Refugee Families (Elderly, Women & Children). We encourage travellers to share time and experience and they glad to mix up with world travellers since 2 years already and they also partly help in running the Guesthouse.

Explore through landscapes sculpted by sunflowers, rolling hills and farms either on foot, bicycle, or horse. Day trips by train are easy from Certaldo so you can go exploring the big cities and see the splendours of Florence, Siena, and Pisa all of which are within an hour.

We organise and run a number of activities from a fresh pasta cooking class with a local chef, to day trips to San Gimignano, Lucca, Volterra, local waterfalls and of course wine tasting!

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 offer (subject mini van available) a pick up/ drop off service once a day (or twice if lucky); otherwise or by local taxi or 25 min easy walk you will reach the guesthouse.

Please note, due to a tourism levy in the region, we have to charge a 3€ per night, per person tax.


Bassetto is starting a reconstruction in front of the dorm side of the guesthouse which will have 2/3 workers starting around 8 am till 5 pm; in summer they start early and will probably wake you up. We apologise in advance for the inconvenience but it’s time to do it after 25 years of activity. We are also moving the swimming pool and will update the website picture once ready.

We look forward to seeing you in Certaldo.

Mycket bra
We had an amazing experience at Basetto. It was such a special place with fantastic views and good vibes. They arranged activities every day, which often were too pricy but the opportunity was nice. The location was a 25 min walk which in our opinion was not too long for the rural feeling of privacy and calm. The negative parts of the hostel was no lockers, not very clean, bugs mosquitoes and flies everywhere. The toilets had reeeally thin walls. You don’t live here for luxury.

Home. That’s the only word i’d use to describe this place. Jo and Phil really goes out of their way to make everyone feel comfortable. I booked 5 nights ended up staying over three weeks. I love everything about this place, from the candlelit wine nights to the pasta class, the bakery in town, and most importantly the people! I’m gonna go back there, to my home away from home
