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.

Just returned from an amazing weeks holiday with my husband and teenage son. I Gelsi is a short drive from the town of Figline Valdarno which has everything you need supermarkets, shops, restaurants etc. However once you arrive there nestled in the hills and hidden by trees you feel you could be miles from anywhere. Idyllic setting with beautiful spaces... More

This is our second visit to Tuscany and second to I Gelsi, no reason to go anywhere else, this renovated old farm house is the place to be,it's central for all Tuscan and Umbrian tourist sites, no further than 1.5 hours easy drive from the furthest. Figline Valdarno is close by with supermarket and restaurants to choose from. It's situated... More

We visited I Gelsi in July this year and we would like to share our thoughts about this wonderful place. The hosts Paolo and Enza were warmly welcoming us at their place and assisted us with any queries we had about the surrounding area. The place is an old vineyard which has been refurbished and made into small fully equipped... More

I shared here with a friend and our children. Enza and paolo went out of their way to give us two apartments facing each other. I have visited lots of places in Tuscany but this was by far the prettiest. It takes relaxing into a new dimension. The apartments are typical Tuscan style, done to a high standard. The pool...

We stayed at Il Girasole for a week at the beginning of August and we had a lovely time. The appartement was spacious and clean, our 2 children loved the big swimming pool, and we enjoyed our aperitivo on the terrace. The place is very beautiful, quiet and peaceful. Our hosts Enza and Paolo are charming and very dedicated. A... More
