My husband and I recently spent a week at I Gelsi with another couple from Australia. The first thing that struck us was how friendly and helpful Paolo the owner was. Enza was wonderful in helping us to book a day at Chef Claudio"s cooking school which was a short walk from the unit, and also gave us some great suggestions for other things to do. The unit we stayed in was tastefully decorated, comfortable and had everything that we needed. It was great that there were some basic supplies in the kitchen(especially Paolo"s Olive Oil & Red Wine) which meant we didn't have to go straight to the shops. The surrounding countryside was beautiful and Figline turned out to be a good base for several day trips to other Tuscan towns.Having laundry facilities on site was great too! I would thoroughly recommend a stay there, but you will need to hire a car unless you just want to chill out and enjoy the scenery and pool.
