Paolo and Enza Fell in love with this large farmhouse set on 14 acres of land in a Beautiful position above the 13th Century town of Figline Valdarno. They slowly and carefully restored the house preserving the original character and charm, its renovation was completed in 2004, it was named after the numerous secular Mulberry trees on the property.
“I Gelsi” has retained its original atmosphere, but of course, essential modern creature comforts have been added including Wi-Fi throughout the property.
Enza is an Italian Born Midwife who returned to Florence from the United Kingdom in the late 1980s.Her husband Paolo is a Florentine photographer and together they live in one wing of the main house with their two grown up children enjoying a traditional Italian family lifestyle. During the summer, Enza takes advantage of the homegrown produce to create preserves and sauces and of course, in autumn everyone helps with the olive harvest.,
