My name is Luigi, but my friends call me Gigi. I live with my daughter Eva, in the main country house of I Gelsi and I work in the fields of my property (olive grove, vineyard and vegetable garden).
I can say without a doubt that I am a great cook of traditional Tuscan foods like bistecca, panzanella, ribollita, and pappa al pomodoro ... which I happily enjoy often! I like drinking a glass of my home produced wine, sleeping in the afternoon when it’s hot outside, playing the guitar, and singing. I also take part in the local church choir.
When you are a guest of the Agriturismo I Gelsi you are considered a member of the family.
You will be able to experience new ways of life, a change of pace, and long living traditions. You will be able to learn and become accustomed to the ways and customs of Tuscan country life. If you would like, you will be happily included in family celebrations! I’m confident that you will return home with a very warm memory of your time spent at I Gelsi.
See you soon!
Gigi and Eva
