We (family with 2 smaller kids) spent one week in Gelsomino in Le Rocche di Valiano in July 2018. Everything was as expected and we had a wonderful vacation time.
Check-in and -out went smooth and host was super friendly, helpful and could speak perfect English. The apartment was clean and in a separate small building on its own. Gelsomino has a wonderful veranda to enjoy the evening sun. The pool is pretty large and was in good shape during our stay. Laundry is in the building just next to the apartment. Le Rocche di Valiano can be reached from the south side on a black-toped road as described on the web-page.
The location is just 10 min from Siena, 40 min from San Gimignano and 1.5 h from Pisa or the ocean. Excellent view over the Tuscany hills included and close to some nice vineries :-)
Local attractions Monteriggioni (10 min by car) - very nice medieval town http://www.agricolalosi.it/ - exellent local vinery with great Chianti Classico
