The Val d'Orcia, (inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2004) and the Val di Chiana, perfectly express the combination of wonderful natural features and the impact of the people who have lived in the area for centuries. The rolling hills are covered with a rich vegetation of vineyards, olive groves, cypresses, beech and chestnut trees, interrupted here and there by ancient habitats of medieval origin. Villa Gelsomino was established as a farm in 1700. The short distance from the thermal baths of San Casciano dei Bagni makes a holiday in this area an unforgettable experience, a place where you can rediscover the peace of the past. Recently restored, using natural materials from the area, the villa is able to offer hospitality, care, comfort and space for families or groups of friends of up to 14 guests.
The villa is divided into five areas. The dining room with a large dining table, a pallet fireplace next to the fully equipped kitchen, with access to the garden and pool terrace. There is a sitting room, lounge with books, satellite TV and video tapes for small children. Bathroom with toilet and washbasin. Next to the lounge there is access to the pergola, shaded by wisteria, with a table for 8 people, which is particularly popular on hot summer afternoons for an aperitif. Here there is a sleeping area, with 3 bedrooms for adults and children. There is also another sleeping area with 2 bedrooms, completely independent of the rest of the house. Going up to the next floor is the living room with a large fireplace and comfortable sofas for the whole family or a large group of friends.
