What a wonderful stay we had in this beautiful, restored villa in the heart of Tuscany. The home is very comfortable with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a wonderful living and kitchen area with fireplace. It was very well equipped with everything we needed in the kitchen, a dishwasher, laundry facilites and even a barbeque.
The infinity pool with the views of the Tuscan hillside made us feel like we were in our own 5 Star resort.
The location was perfect. Many of the other villas we looked at were either in town or a long way away from town, with long drives down dirt roads.
Gello has the perfect location. It is 3 minutes from a main road. When you turn down your private drive for about 1 minute you are in the middle of total privacy with olive trees and beautiful hills surrounding you. At night the hillside town of Civitella can be seen through your bedroom window.
The other thing we loved about Gello was the fact that we could drive to some of wonderful local towns. Cortona was less than 35 minutes away, San Gimignano less than 1 hour and Sienna 40 minutes away.
We even took the train into Florence one day from the town of Arezzo. Under 1 hour and we were right in the heart of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
The owners John (actually a Canadian who has been living here for over 20 years ) and his wife Lucianna were wonderful hosts and available to assist us at any time. John even told me how to get to the Prada outlet in Montevarchi.
Thank you again for making our visit to Tuscany memorable. Can't wait to return. Janet and Dennis Hull
