Fantastic spot in the middle of Tuscany! Great location! Our party of 5 spent a week there and it's been incredible! The property is beautiful, much bigger inside than the pictures can show, plenty of room for all of us, with a great kitchen/livingroom/dining area, and a great outside terrasse, all surrounded by a luxurious mature garden and olive trees. The swimming pool, the view, added the cream on the cake. But the cherry are Luciana and John: 2 beautiful people, who'll show you their love for Tuscany, its landscape and its architecture. And if you're lucky, Luciana's adorable donkeys willl pay you a visit at breakfast after they escaped...;) Luciana & John, thank you so much for EVERYTHING (and you know what it means), big big hugs from all of us, we wish you the best for the future and we really hope to see you again. Ciao!! S&S&M&J&J.

House Gello is a very unique place to relax. The house, garden and pool are even better than in the description. We had a perfect time and hope to be back soon. Luciana and John are the perfect hosts. Many thanks! Highly recommended to stay in this beautiful place.

There were a few similar properties I had been considering staying. I am so glad I selected this one. John and Luciana were wonderful hosts. The house was one of the cleanest and most well stocked of of any Airbnb I have stayed at. They also had plenty of recommendations and information for us at the house. We had so much privacy but it was nice to know they were available if we needed anything. The location, home and views were even better than described. There were so many places on the grounds to lounge around, take a walk or eat a meal. The house was perfect, inside and out. The view of the castle at night was mesmerizing. This is certainly one of the best of the best listings in Tuscany.

We loved this Italian villa. Everything was as advertised. Our hosts were present on arrival, available during the week, and very accommodating on check out. It was perfect for us. It is off the beaten path just enough to find privacy and quiet. Yet it is a great starting point from which to explore all of Tuscany easily by car. It has all the amenities to live comfortably. The pool is beautiful and refreshing. The villa has tremendous charm and a great story. We loved it.

I spendt almost two weeks during Easter with my family of 5 in Luciana and Johns house, beautifully situated on the brink of a hill with a view towards west, appr. 20 min drive from Arezzo and 20 min walk from Civitella in Val de Chiana (a beautiful old village with two nice restaurants and a small grocery store) The house, partly as old as 600 years, is charming and was delicately and tastefully modernized in the end of the 90's. The reason for not giving a top rating was its size (the living room did not match the 4 bedrooms and 7 beds), that the pool was located by itself 50 m from the house (the pictures gives a different impression) and a terribly expensive heating (I spend 385 EUR on gas). The house may be more suitable when it is warm outside and one can enjoy the beautiful scenery by utilizing one of the many outside seating areas. Luciana and John, who lives only a few minutes away, was warm, welcoming and service minded and are highly recommended as hosts.

Perfect!!!! The house is beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous. The view is magnificent. Luciana and her husband John are wonderful hosts. They allow you your privacy but are always available to help you if needed. This is an idyllic and private dwelling with a beautiful pool and wonderful aromas from the flowers and herbs. If you want to be a "tuscan", this is the place to go!
