About Gelli

Owned and run by our family the property offers our guests a warm and welcome enviroment in which to enjoy typical tuscan hospitality and enjoy genuine produce such as our own extra virgin olive oil, grapes, fruit and vegetables in season all produced by ourselves.

Why Gelli chose Castellina In Chianti

Our surrounding countryside is the ideal place to enjoy nature in peace and quiet, relax, walk or trek the ancient Via Romea which crosses our property. Here you can admire the beautiful scenery over the Val d’elsa and see in the distance the towers of San Gimignano and the surrounding hills of Monteriggioni, Colle Val d’elsa and Casole d’elsa. Florence is 45 minutes by car and Siena 25 minutes. There is much to do and see in this area and the property is ideally situated to explore Chianti and beyond. A 15 minute walk takes you into the town of Castellina where you will find shops and galleries, many very good restaurants, pizzerias and cafès, a supermarket, winecellars and excellent icecream. The town itself is lovely to explore and there are many organised events which we will let you know about in advance. The area has many very good wineries to visit and partake in winetasting and we can organise winetours with pick up and drop off here on the property. These tours take in 2 or more wineries and include lunch or dinner for a very good price.

What makes this barn unique

The result of this work is a harmonious and comfortable enviroment which provides three apartments selectly decorated with traditional rural tuscan furnishings. The restoration that has been done is in bio edilizia or ecologically restored using only ecological materials so that the house and apartments breathe. The setting is such that there are stunning views over the surrounding valleys and Tuscan countryside. While we are close to the town center we are also a very quiet and tranquill

spot where one can relax and enjoy the Tuscan surroundings.

The PERFECT Place to Fill Your Senses and Explore Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

From the first email with Linda, and throughout the entire stay at beautiful Godenano di Mezzo, our expectations were exceeded. The blend of professionalism and warmth that Linda exhibits makes an amazing place to stay even better. Two of us stayed in the Lavanda suite, which was absolutely perfect. From the spectacular view and sunsets, to the beautiful gardens, orchards, sweet Otto, Leone, the falcons... my senses were filled the entire time. The nearby small town of Castellina is perfectly charming and filled with just enough good restaurants and stores that, although you'll want to explore all of Tuscany from this ideal location, you wouldn't need to leave the area if you didn't want to. This is a life enriching experience that I relive everytime I taste the delicious olive oil produced from the property. Thank you for everything!

Tuscany Family Vacation

We had a wonderful time! Linda is a great host and very helpful. We stayed in the Falco apartment and couldn't asked for anything better. Everything looks new! Great decor and comfortable beds. Awesome views! This is the perfect location to visit Florence, Siena, and surrounding areas.

Honeymoon in Chianti

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from the honeymoon of a lifetime in Italy, 7 days of which were spent in the "Falco" apartment which was heaven on Earth. Linda was so wonderful and greeted us as if we were already friends. The apartment was so cool with it's authentic feel and wonderful views. It was a great place to come back and relax after walking through Siena and San Gimignano. The private entrance was nice and it had everything we needed for the week. Castellina in Chianti was a lovely town that we ate dinner in each night - all the restaurants were amazing! Using Godenano as a starting out point, Linda gave us some great tips on traveling in the countryside as well as places to visit. My husband made friends with Otto and Leone quickly and we miss them as well as Linda already! We will definitely come back to explore the areas we missed on our first trip. Thank you Linda and family for you amazing hospitality and your beautiful piece of paradise!

Absolutely Perfect Historic Property with All Amenities, Fabulous Views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Falco apartment for a week in May. The property was absolutely immaculate, and very thoughtfully supplied with everything we needed. Linda's gardens were spectacular with beautiful flowers and vegetables in profusion. The weather was cool, so we didn't get to use the pool, but it, too, was perfectly kept. Our bed was very comfortable, and the views from our windows over the olive trees and across the valley were something we'll always remember! In short, a beautiful place with a gracious hostess, with easy access to Sienna, Florence, and many historic hill towns. The village of Castellina in Chianti is a steep walk up the hill, and well worth the effort- we had two delicious meals in town, and the local gelato spot is a stand-out! We would definitely love to return!

We are a couple in our 70's who found the apartment Rosemarino as lovely and comfortable as represented in the photos. All reservation and payment requirements were completed professionally and in a timely manner. The mattress and pillows were so welcoming after a hot day of touring in the area. Linda is nothing short of amazing! She is the perfect hostess, anticipating our every need, sharing her time and knowledge of the area at any opportune moment while respecting our privacy and personal space. She offered suggestions, directions and honest opinions of the tourist attractions available. She even shared with us, her attempts to save the lives of 4 newly born hedgehogs found abandoned in her driveway. The pool/spa area is well maintained and available from morning to late evening. The only suggestion I might make is that plastic glasses be provided so guests can enjoy a glass of wine while reading poolside.

A beautiful stone farmhouse became our perfect home for almost a week

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our 16 year old son, and I spent 6 nights in the Falco (Falcon) apartment in July. It's on the first floor, which in the US means the second floor. It's a spacious, sparkling clean 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom (1 ensuite), kitchen, and living room. There is also a lovely outside area with a picnic table just for those in the Falco apt. and a gas grill that looks brand new.

Opening the windows allows in the magnificent views of the Chianti region: olive trees, vineyards, and the endless hills. With the open windows one also fully comprehends the width of the ancient stone farmhouse walls. This farmhouse is a treasure and a working farm, so it is a joy to use (and take home) their very own olive oil.

The apartment was filled with anything one would need in the kitchen: utensils, plates, bowls, wine glasses, dishwasher, drying towels, utensils for the grill. We enjoyed making bruschetta every morning and one night my husband made a tasty dinner from items in the town, which we happily ate outside in our little piece of the Tuscan countryside.

The pool is absolutely incredible: so clean and positioned so the Tuscan landscape surrounds one and one can happily gaze about either while swimming or sitting in the comfortable lounge chairs. The thick bath and pool towels are also a nice touch.

We appreciated the location, between Siena and Florence, and had lovely times exploring both cities and the surrounding hill towns and restaurants. The town of Castellina in Chianti itself is a gem: delicious restaurants specializing in local fare, produce markets, cheese shops, wineries, butchers, and little cafes perfect for a morning cappuccino.

We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning.
