About Enza corbo

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 children enjoying a traditional Italian family lifestyle.

During Summer Enza takes advantage of the home grown produce to create preserves and sauces and of course, in Autumn, everyone helps with producing Olive Oil from the groves surrounding their house.

Enza corbo purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Enza corbo chose Metropolitan City of Florence

In 1998 Paolo and Enza Carlini fell in love with a large farmhouse set on 14 acres of land, in a beautiful position above the 13th century town of Figline Valdarno with stunning views of the Tuscan countryside.

They slowly and carefully restored the house preserving the original character and charm, deciding to name the property after the numerous Mulberry trees that surround the house. The grounds offer privacy and plenty of opportunity to experience the atmosphere of the italian countryside with enjoyable walks through fields and wooded copse. However you are still only 10 minutes from the centre of Figline, and it's charming Piazza, modern amenities and frequent rail service to both Florence and Rome.

What makes this apartment unique

Though peaceful and rural, I Gelsi is within easy reach of many of the Medieval towns and cities of Tuscany and makes a superb base for touring this wonderful region.

I Gelsi boasts a large infinity pool which is positioned so that the wonderful view of the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed in sunshine from early in the morning to sunset.

A substantial brick built, rustic barbecue, located away from the apartments to prevent smoke nuisance, is available for everyone to use and perhaps try out "Bistecca alla Fiorentina".

Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

The property was a good size and well equipped. There isn't an oven in the apartment but that wasn't a problem as there is a good gas hob and microwave and a barbecue if you want. We loved the beds, comfy and a good size. Everything was spotless and well laid out. We loved the apartments own terrace and also the shared terrace which had a beautiful view. The pool is a really good size so we could have a good swim as well as cooling off and had lots of loungers and a shower. Enzo and Paulo were really helpful and generous and helped make the stay special.

Memorable stay in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay in Tuscany that was to a large part due to the excellent accommodation and hospitality we experienced at I Gelsi. We had been travelling for a number of months but the beauty of I Gelsi was that it was truly a retreat in which we could relax as a family away from the hustle and bustle of Florence.

Nestled in the hills above Figline Valdarno it was a wonderful, peaceful stay in which we could enjoy driving to some amazing places such as Pisa, Florence and Lucca then head back to I Gelsi for a quiet night.

The infinity pool was refreshing and the kids loved swimming/playing in the very well maintained and large pool.

We would highly recommend this property and look forward to coming back in the future. The owners are very helpful and made us feel right at home. It was truly one of the best places we stayed in on our world travels.

Thank-you Enza and Paolo.
