The enchanting beauty of the Chianti area represents the scenery of villa Gelso, where you can admire the surroundings vineyards, olive groves and oak forests in an atmosphere of absolute tranquillity. Gelso is situated on only a four kilometres distance from Gaiole in Chianti, which is the heart of the Chianti and the perfect base from which to explore the region’s world-class vineyards.
The architect who dealt with the renovation works has been able to respect the history of the farmhouse preserving stone walls, wooden beams and terracotta floors, integrating it with the comfort of modern, luxurious furnishing. The villa has four bedrooms all with spacious en suite bathrooms, all furnished with the same level of a rustic-chic look. Bright windows open out to the most lived areas during the summer months, and everything remains comfortably ‘gathered’ around the villa; the hibiscus-covered terrace, the pergola facing the panoramic pool and the guest house in the immediate vicinity.
As in the imagination of those who are preparing to visit Tuscany for the first time, from the villa you can view in the hills, hill top villages like Lecchi, and other medieval villages.
In the autumn period the Chianti area offers the best wine tasting experiences; tasting wine in the best wineries in the area. Gaiole, is a charming village with its old centre, which offers true hospitality, in a relaxed atmosphere, attracting visitors with its beautiful castles and gorgeous restaurants.

The villa was great and met our expectations but a few suggestions that may help:
1. Better directions (more clear) into the property.. it was somewhat confusing
2. Better description of the road into the property. We did ask ahead of time what the road was like and if it was suitable for riding a bike in. Was informed it was, but in reality it was not and we had to walk the bikes up the hills/ gravel road, change to riding shoes at top, leave walking shoes at the end of the road and repeat the process back to the villa at the end of the ride."

"This villa will have you planning how you can move to Tuscany. The decoration is outstanding, beautiful quality fabrics and furniture make the rooms restful and pleasing to the eye. The villa is located in a charming small village but only minutes to a bigger town with a Coop supermarket and excellent butcher. We did daytrips to Siena, Florence and Brolio castle. Liz, the housekeeper kept the house in tip top shape, as well as giving us advice on shops, restaurants and hikes. She came six out of the seven days we stayed at the villa, for three hours each day so the house was immaculate. We used the concierge service to arrange a chef to cook dinner for us and also give us a cooking class. Both were wonderful experiences. Everything about our stay exceeded our expectations."

"The coordination and the villa itself exceeded all of our expectations. We were looking for something small in the middle of Tuscany, something quiet as a counterpoint to all the busy city trips we undertook. Our villa was perfect - perfectly located in the middle of a vineyard about 4 km from a small tuscan town that had everything we needed. The staff was there to great us upon arrival and was very helpful getting us settled in. The furniture, pool, and over ambiance of the villa was just as depicted in the pictures. One evening we had chef prepare a local dinner for 7 and service was fabulous - a truly memorable evening and a fantastic week. We will definitely use Home in Italy for future trips."
