Villa Gelsi is a substantial rural property which was once one of the many farmhouses in the area. It stands in an elevated position surrounded by farmland, and offers commanding views of the local countryside. Built to last, the substantial walls keep the house cool in the summer, and warm in the winter. We have tried to preserve elements of the past within the house, such as the old beams, a feeding trough, and the original warm stonework left untouched on some walls. Combined with the past are modern conveniences; for example, air conditioning, thermostatic showers, flat panel satellite TV with DVD, free WiFi, 12 x 6 metre pool, and a 21st century standard of comfort.
