About Mariacristina Cellini
I was born and grew up in Treviso, close to Venice . My grandmother was from Tuscany so we often spent holidays in this magic land . I took agriculture degree in Padova and then I have been running my family organic farm in Veneto for many years. My deep love for Tuscany made me transfer here with all my family, 3 years ago . We bought this property in 2011 and others two, we are now restoring, in 2012. We really fell in love with this amazing land and true people. Everything here is full of poetry and history.

Tuscan charm with Modern Furnishings
Villa Il Gelso is a beautiful property with the all the benefits of a quiet countryside location with views of Montepulciano and the modern furnishings you would expect in a city hotel. It all combines for a perfect place to relax in comfort and enjoy the many villages just a short drive away. Our group thoroughly enjoyed the villa and all of the nearby activities that come with it.
Mariacristina is a great hostess and was happy to arrange multiple activities including truffle hunting with Pierpaolo, chef nights at the villa with Alessandro, and wine tasting at a small family Brunello estate which was the best winery experience any of us had ever had. She was very attentive to our needs which was much appreciated. We will be back!
Dear John thank you so much for your review . I am really glad you have enjoyed your stay at the Villa . You are great guests ! I look forward to having you back again Mariacristina
Wonderful vacation amid the Tuscan hills
Our extended family of 12 stayed at Villa Il Gelso for two weeks in October. It was a vacation that was all we could have wished for.
The main house, the two cottages and the yard were as wonderful as shown in the photos on the website. The villa looks out over the hills and valleys at Montepulciano, Monte Amiata, and Montefollonico. The setting is stunning. Many beautiful, historic towns and villages, as well as vineyards producing Vino Nobile, Brunello and Chianti, are all within very short drives of Il Gelso. When we were not exploring the surrounding villages and countryside, we were more than happy to sit by the pool with a glass of wine, take in the view, and appreciate our good fortune.The more energetic of us hiked from the villa to Montefollonico, or got in their daily runs on nearby small back roads or walked through the fields and woods below the villa. In the evenings, we often cooked at the villa, ate at the large dining room table and then enjoyed the rest of the evening around the outdoor fire pit.
Mariacristina was a kind and considerate host who was available in person or by text if we had a question.
All of us, unhesitatingly, would return to Il Gelso.
Charme e conforto
Vila Il Gelso é simplesmente maravilhosa. A casa é charmosa, espaçosa, confortável e está muito bem localizada, numa área com vista explendida dos campos da Toscana. Mariacristina é uma anfitriã muito atenciosa, que nos forneceu todas as informaçoes e dicas que solicitavamos. Enfim, temos planos de voltar aqui um dia.
A gorgeous villa with beautiful views
We had a wonderful stay at the villa. It has been renovated baeutifully. Mariacristina was so helpful in booking us restaurants and recommending activities.
Excellent villa, excellent area
This was a family trip with 9 people ages 84-17 and we all agree that it was perfect. The villa was clean and beautiful and easily accomodated all of us. Set on a hillside with views of Montepulciano, it was private, yet convenient. The pool and area around it was a favorite spot, as was the kitchen.
Maria Christina helped arrange for local Chef Allesandro to prepare a welcome dinner and also a private cooking class later in the week. I was a highlight of the trip for several of us!
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.
I am very glad you enjoyed your stay at the Villa . It was a pleasure to have you and to help you . I really look forward to having you again .
Hugs to all of you
