Hello I'm Mauro!
I love this land and I have spent all my life here.
I was born here and I cultivate the lands around the house, the wineyard and the olive trees, as my parents did before me, and before them, the parents of my parents and so on.
The colonic house is really large; I live in a part and the rest is for my guests!
Every apartments has indipendent entrance and the garden is very wide so privacy has assured.
For anythings you need it will be enough to knok on my door.
I hope you will stay well here as at home.
I've named the house as The Gelso for the great tree you will find on the right of the house coming from the access way.
The Gelso is an ancient and typical tuscan colonic house. It was built at the end of '800 and renovated several times in the last 40 years. In the early '70s the part with the terrace was added and more recently interiors have been renovated. He kept the look simple and welcoming, with a beautiful and wide garden where you can use the barbecue. Next to the garden was built the pool where you can enjoy the sun for the entire day. Close to Ambra within walking distance. Located in the heart of Tuscany you can easily reach Florence, Siena, Arezzo, San Gimignano, Volterra, Chianti, Val d'Orcia and the coast as well as Perugia and Assisi. Many of these resorts are international heritage of UNESCO.
