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...

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...

Figline Valdarno is close by with supermarket and restaurants to choose from. It's situated...

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...

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...
