For animal lovers, our little countryside street is fully populated by wild friends: walking down it it’s a good way of sighting squirrels, pheasants and, with a bit of luck, fawns and deer families. And, downstream, looking at the mallards paddling in the river, it’s easy to see the elegant herons, commiting themselves to a relaxing pause during migration. And nor the bird-watchers will get bored: according to different seasons, a lot of different and colorful bird species come and visit us. It’s impossible not to fall in love with their birdsong.
Under no circumstances feeding them is allowed.
Our b&b is located in an ancient rural stone house, originally property of the Charter-house monks; actually five families are living here, and it’s only we who open their doors to the guests.
We therefore kindly ask our guests to respect the privacy and peacefullness of the place and neighbours living here, to enjoy just the bed&breakfast areas and not to feed or touch their pet animals.

Ponte di Certosa b&b: come nasce
Ponte di Certosa b&b: Its origins
It is a long but simple story. It is the story of an idea. The idea has a place and a time. It has a “before” and an “after”. And it finally has a “now!” It is the story of this idea and of the environment which made it possible: An old country house made of stone, located in the green hills surrounding Florence.
We took inspiration from all aspects of nature around us: Colors, scents, silence, and tastes. It would have been impossible to remain insensitive to all the stimuli to our senses.
From Tuscany, the land which hosts us, we inherited our love and respect for the past, our interest in keeping it alive, in preserving it, in recuperating it, and in valuing it. In our house, every object, piece of furniture, and of cloth has its story and its past, which we do not want to conceal. On the contrary, we show it and bring it to the present. We gave new life to the objects we found in the homes where we grew up, in the chests of our grand-parents, in the local flea markets, in the forgotten roofs. Everything was there…we simply undusted and polished these objects. We brought them back to life and now they can tell about their story.
In furnishing the house, we worked around every single piece, even before we considered its “final destination.” We got inspiration from the colors and shape of each piece. It was fascinating to see how each room took shape under our eyes. Objects coming from different places of origin harmonized in their new home, taking new life. This is how we see the making of an interior: creating a new setting in harmony with the present. We did it by re-interpreting the past.
