The idyllic setting of this family-run wine and olive oil estate is a Tuscan dream. Recently restored farmhouses have been converted into seven apartments. The decor is modern, creative, and simple – perfect for young children. Outdoor spaces are phenomenal, with ample flat grass for running around, a sensational pool area, and a playground. Although the property is set up around guest autonomy, the gracious proprietor is available to answer questions and can organize private gastronomic tours of the region. Roads in and out of this area are easy to navigate, making this an ideal home-base. But beware – once you settle into Al Gelso Bianco, you may never want to leave!
