A typical tuscany countryside atmosphere close to all the gems of the region (Florence, 25 min, Lucca, 35 min, Pisa 50 min, Siena 50 min, Pistioia 25 min., Forte dei Marmi, 50 min)
Located just 15 Km from the centre of Florence, the Gello estate is situated in the heart of a property that consists of roughly 20 hectares of olive groves, surrounded by woodland: the perfect place to spend some time immersed in tranquillity and nature.
The location of the house is ideal for anyone who wishes to combine a passion for the Tuscan countryside with visits to cities of art: Florence, Lucca, Siena and Arezzo can all be reached easily on day trips.
The house lies in the Calenzano area and is approximately 15 minutes away from the motorway exit of the Autosole A1.
The Gello estate is a small holding comprising two buildings separated by an internal courtyard.
The house, the original nucleus of which is a tower dating back to the 14th Century, has recently been restored in keeping with Tuscan tradition and all the original fixtures and cotto red-brick floors have been preserved. A great deal of attention has been paid to furnishings and the general comfort of the home.
The house is on three floors and comprises:
-entrance/living room with a large open fireplace, kitchen, dining room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms at ground level;
-one bedroom in the 14th Century tower;
-on the lower level, a double living area that overlooks a large terrace and veranda area; on the same floor is a reading room, a room containing a wood-burning fire and two utility rooms (laundry machine)
Weekly rental includes bed linen and both bath and swimming towels.
The kitchen is well-equipped (fridge, dishwasher, a variety of utensils, etc) and allows for the organisation of lunches and dinners for over 20 guests. A well-equipped external barbecue is also available.
The property also has a 12 x 6 m swimming pool (maximum depth 1,2 metres) set among the olive groves that boasts a wonderful view of the landscape. There are sun beds and umbrellas poolside.
The estate is on unlevel ground due to the terracing of the garden and therefore children should be carefully supervised.
A car is necessary as the access road to the house is via a dirt track and is situated two km away from the nearest village with shops for daily provisions.
