Our family had the most wonderful time there - Vittoria and Susanna were absolutely amazing - Susanna did the cooking class and Vittoria the wine tasting. We all had lunch together afterwards in a beautiful dinning area.. This experience in the most stunning... More

we visited Al Gelso Bianco with our 4 year old and 8 month old for the cooking class. It was so amazing! We cooked easy yet delicious italian dishes. The place itself is MAGICAL and it is run by the owners who are great, they include a wine tasting from the family's vineyard and the wines were delicious. We are... More

Our family of five (husband, mother and two children) stayed at Al Gelso Bianco in early June and everyone loved it. Our two-bedroom apartment (Ginestra) was beautifully decorated and plenty of space for us all. I especially loved the upstairs balcony with it's views across the rolling hills to San Gimignano. The children loved the space to explore, table soccer... More

We spent 2 weeks here in April with our 18 month-old daughter. We stayed in Rosmarino, which had enough room for us, and a beautiful little terrace offering great views over the valley to San Gimignano. Our 'piccolina' loved exploring the property every morning in search of the three resident cats, and embraced the well sized playground too. The staff... More

This farm is beautifully maintained. All the things for a comfortable stay. I can only speak for the decor of our apartment - Gelsomino - but it was nicely decorated, comfortable beds, lots of attention to detail. The kitchen was full stocked with glasses, pots, pans, the a/c worked well, there was a bag for your laundry provided, a rack... More

We've just got back from a wonderful, sunny week at Al Gelso Bianco, staying in Gelsomino with our two year old. Gelsomino is a fantastic apartment - it's a good size and well equipped and we absolutely loved our jasmine-covered terrace which meant we could sit outside in all temperatures. It has beautiful views towards San Gimignano and is very... More

We stayed in the Gelsomino apartment with our 2 children (5, 3) and first of all we were impressed with the warm welcome we received from Vittoria upon arrival. The apartment is very well appointed, the kitchen is well equipped and it was extremely clean. The only issue we had is that there are only showers which was a bit... More

We stayed in Gelsomino for a week with our toddler, Daniel (18 months old) and another couple with their daughter of the same age. The resort itself is fantastic - lots of outside space for Daniel to run around (he loved the small playground and the field by the swimming pool), and wonderful views of Tuscany. The resort is well... More

We stayed at the Gelsomino apartment with our toddler (2.8) for a week. Everything about the arrangements went smoothly, great communication with all the staff. The location is perfect for a Tuscan experience: only 30 min. to Siena, 40 min. to Florence, 20 min. to San Gimignano. The nearby town of Tavarnelle also had a nice Coop which we frequented,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Al Gelso Bianco is located in one of the most beautiful valleys of the Chianti area, the Val d'Elsa, just a stone's throw from the cities of Florence and Siena (16 miles from Florence and 19 miles from Siena). Arriving to the resort along the cypress lined avenue will give visitors a preview of the love and care that the owners give to this enchanted place. Practically a hamlet in itself, it enjoys the privileged position of sitting opposite the 10th century Romanesque church of Sant'Appiano (X a.C) and the soaring towers of San Gimignano in the distance. Al Gelso Bianco is immersed in the green of the Valacchi Agricultural Estate Typical products of this marvellous land, such as Chianti DOCG wine, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Grappa and Vin Santa dessert wine, have been produced here for many years. During your stay at Al Gelso Bianco you can enjoy a wine and olive oil tasting in the cellar, a relaxing time at the swimming pool, a visit to the most important cities of Tuscany just few kilometres away, a cooking classes, a Tuscan dinner prepared in our amazing garden or having fun at a pizza party. We are available to help you in booking museums, licensed professional guides for private tours, restaurants, mountain bikes, baby sitters, and whatever you need to make your stay a pleasant, relaxing and true Tuscan experience. ... more   less
