Al Gelso Bianco is a perfect for a family vacation to Tuscany. It's well situated conveniently between Siena and Florence and you can easily access San Gimignano. We stayed in the Salvia apartment with our two year old son - it is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped too.
The pool is a great addition -it's large!
The staff at the farm are wonderful too - incredibly helpful and offered amazing tips!

- 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.
