About the area

<p>The closest village to this villa is Bagnano, which has a small food market. Just under six kilometers is the town of Sciano, with a food shop and pizzeria. Barberino Val d'Elsa offers additional grocery markets, bank, post office, restaurants, and cafes. Make sure to visit Certaldo, which has all the necessities combined with small-town charm. Explore Certaldo Alta, the old medieval village, and if you find yourself traveling in July, enjoy the Renaissance festival, complete with street artists, actors, musicians, and more. There are train connections from Certaldo to Siena and Florence, but there is no bus service from the villa to Certaldo. </p><p>Nearby Attractions: The medieval hamlets of Sant’Appiano and Linari, just a few kilometers from Barberino Val d’Elsa, are worth a visit. The parish Church of Sant’Appiano is referred to by many as the oldest church in the Chianti region.
