We just kept extending our stay we loved it so much. Stayed in the separate studio with a beautiful view out the large window. The grounds, pool, terrace and owners are absolutely lovely. We didn't want to leave. Thank you Enza and Paolo!

Stayed here for two weeks in August after a long drive from the UK. Paolo, Enza and family are lovely and could not have been more accommodating. The apartment, pool and surroundings were fabulous, and I Gelsi's location is great for visiting Florence, Siena and the myriad of beautiful Tuscan villages.

We stayed here for our honeymoon, with our 2 daughters (16 & 9). We couldn't have wanted more. The apartment met our needs perfectly, having to separate bedrooms and a small lounge/kitchen area. It was based on the upper floor, and our own terrace was based below on the ground floor. We overlooked the pool, which was a joy on... More

The apartment is over two floors with all the home comforts you need. Outside patio which we spent most of the time when not relaxing around a lovely 14m pool... More

I Gelsi went beyond our expectations. It is in a beautiful spot, with great views from the terrace and with a very good sized pool. The apartment was compact but had everything we needed and it has a very good sized terrace and we spent almost all our time outside. Enza and Paolo are welcoming and generous and they helped...

I Gelsi sits in a beautiful rural landscape. It is about in fact abut 7 mins drive from Figline valdarno and 20 mins from the Incise autoroute exit, but you would never know. We had two stays one in the two level 'Il Forno' and one in the upper level 'Rosa Cantine' apartments. Both were excellent with small but excellently... More

We were in Italy in October this year and again stayed at Il Gelsi. We are a family of 3 and this was not the first time we enjoyed the comfort and pleasures of this Tuscan hills resort. We first discovered il Gelsi when we were planning our first trip to Italy / Europe several years ago. It looked very... More

This has to be one of most favorite holiday retreats, perfect location for exploring or just sitting back and relaxing. Cannot recommend this place enough, if you want a very relaxing and special time head to I Gelsi.

I Gelsi is situated in a beautiful rural setting but within easy reach of the nearby town. It is an ideal place from which to explore the delights of Tuscany. There is a Co-Op hypermarket where you can buy anything you might need and the fresh produce is of the highest quality. The properties are well equipped with lovely shaded... More

The friendly owners Paolo & Enza were fantastic.Apartment and room were lovely with very comfortable bed. The view was fantastic overlooking the village and the Tuscan mountains with beautiful garden. Wonderful tranquil nights with a great star sky. A very romantic place to visit and we highly recommend this house and property.
