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.

"Fabulous holiday and accommodation"
We stayed at this apartment in June this year. The apartment was really well fitted out and spotlessly clean, the oven looked like it had never been used !! The facilities were great and the location is lovely, it is close by to lots of places of interest. We were able to have a barbeque outside in the grounds one evening overlooking the Tuscan hills which was beautiful. The pool was lovely to cool down in and has only recently been built. On a final note the owners and their family were fabulous hosts and really went out of their way to make you feel welcome. This is truly a wonderful place to stay.
First of all, our best thanks to have chosen our property for your holiday. We are very proud of the feelings you felt during your staying here: this gives us the necessary strength to improve our work. Many many thanks !!!!...........and we hope to guest you here again!!!!! Emanuela and Carlo

"one of the best vacations !"
We had a great time! The house was perfect and very clean!! My wives concern was how clean and nice the house would be and it was perfect! We booked at last time and Carlo was very fast in making it happen. The views were amazing , but the best thing the people. From the moment we got in Carlo's dad was offering not only his smile but his oil , wines , nuts and best of all the story of his life how he traveled 37 countries with Singer. Carlo's mom told me how to prepare noquis a la romana "with no patatos I could smoke my cigars at night under and olive tree looking at the beautiful scenery in front of me Carlo recommended Three Archi the restaurant on the same block were we ate almost every nigh and we met Franco that not only recommended more places to see and more restaurants to try in the area but had his wife letting me know the recipes for the best dishes Thanks Carlo and Emanuela for a great vacation!

My fiancée and I have just returned home from a wonderful stay at the villa. We booked it very last minute after we decided to take a trip to look at wedding venues and after scouring the internet for somewhere in a good location with a nice interior I stumbled upon Casa Gelsomino and I am so glad we did. When we arrived we were shown around by Carlo the owner who was so friendly and helpful. In the villa he and his wife had left a bottle of their own olive oil, a bottle of home brewed sherry and the most delicious cake along with a hand written welcome note. The villa itself is really well situated, 15 minutes from San Gimignano in a little village with a bar, a shop and a restaurant. It is really well furnished, it feels brand new and is immaculately clean with everything you would need whilst on holiday, there was even washing powder, dishwasher tablets etc, we didn't have to buy anything which was a real bonus. The owners live close by and are on hand for anything you need, they even brought us a bottle of wine round from the local vineyard, they are so kind and couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. I would highly recommend this place to either families, couples or a group of friends who want to stay somewhere modern on the inside but still in the heart of rural tuscany. We will certainly be returning.
There're no words to describe our feelings after reading this review !! we're deeply happy and the friendly review encourages us to give more in the future. Many many thanks to our guests !!!!!!!!!!! We're longing to have you here again and drinking a glass of wine togheter!!!! Kind of you !! Emanuela e Carlo
