The Tuscany region

Tuscany is without doubt, the most wonderful Italian region. It can offer you all you need to relax your mind and your body. Siena province has many attractions, historical, and a lot of villages full of life with important cultural and folk programmes to celebrate our history.

There are our fascinating landscapes, with vineyard and olives, our white -roads famous in the world. There are our wines and our olive oil and our simple but fantastic cooking. There is the Paiio, twice a year, in July and August.

There is a marvellous sea.

If you choose our holiday home, you can taste and feel all these emotions. Casa Gelsomino is very near to Florence , Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra and to the Costa Degli Etruschi sea.

Castel San Gimignano

San Gimignano has been declared by UNESCO a part of the World's Architectural Heritage.

Castel San Gimignano is a small medieval hamlet with still its ancient wall and it's situated on the top of a hill, from which you can admire a 360° amazing landscape.

Our quite hamlet is 12 km far from San Gimignano , 30 km from Siena, 15 from Volterra, 50 km from Florence.

You can have a special holiday, starting from here towards the most important cities of Tuscany, and on your back to relax in our property, tasting some good wine.
