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.
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.

"Brilliant location, fantastic views and the warmest of welcomes."
We have just returned from Casa Verbena having had a fabulous time. The accommodation is very spacious and exceptionally clean and well equipped. The pictures of the apartment do not illustrate this to it's full potential. We travelled with our teenage children, 17 and 19, and found the accommodation perfect for our needs. The view from the pool is breath taking and the welcome from the family is very sincere. We loved the local café bar for coffee and cake in the mornings and beer in the late afternoon. The small village is well served with a lovely, although a little expensive, restaurant and a very well equipped local shop. The location of the apartment is perfect to see most of the major sites in beautiful Tuscany. A great choice.
We are very proud of this review! we thank our guests very much and we'd like to have you here again !

"Nicely located, clean and comfortable apartment"
Apartment is located 70 meters from the road between Volterra and Colle val d'Elza on a hill side. A very central location for visits to the highlights in Tuscany. The building has 3 apartments and is surrounded by a beautiful garden.There is a nice new swimming pool with a great view of the valley. There is a big lawn and there are olive trees, chickens, rabbits and lots of herbs in the garden. The parents of Carlo live in the same building. They have been very friendly and helpful, especially for our kids. There is a restaurant around the corner and a small supermarket across the street. There are also many other restaurants in the vicinity (15 min drive) and a bigger supermarket in Colle Val d' Elza.(20 min)
Carlo and Emanuela live across the street and are very helpful to assist you with whatever question you might have.
We had a great stay and enjoyed the warm welcome of this special italian family.
Hope to return in the future!
