This is the most amazing Family run Hotel, The Franceschi Family go out of their way to make you comfortable, This is the second time I have visited and stayed here, Six years ago I came in May with my Husband. I thought that maybe I would find the service and Hospitality would not be as good. This time I... More

In every way that counts this little hotel is first class. It is run by a three generation Italian family, even the children help with small items of luggage! I don't think I have ever seen people work harder and with such dedication. Nothing is too much trouble. We were part of a Saga group and stayed for two weeks... More

terrific home cooked and nourishing food. a warm welcome and pleasant cosy public rooms. very family orientated as the owners live on the premises. rooms very clean but bathrooms interesting as they have been fitted out into small and odd spaces.

What a fabulous holiday. The hotel is unique and the Franceschi family are wonderful, so welcoming and friendly. Food was delicious with lots of choice both for breakfast or evening meal. Gavinana feels off the tourist trail and there is plenty to do in the immediate area, with larger towns available on the local bus if wanted. Cutigliano is well... More

The restaurant was small and attractive and the food was excellent and very Italian. it is cooked by the son in law who is a great chef.There is a small... More

My friend and I have just returned from a very good week at Hotel Franceschi in Gavinana, If you are more interested in a friendly, informal atmosphere rather than a smart, up to date decor then you will like this place. Maybe the decor is a little quaint but it is their home after all and you are made to... More

Just returned from a wonderful two weeks in this lovely family run hotel in the Tuscan mountains. Although some might find the family momentoes and photos around the hotel to be 'clutter' it gives the hotel a real feel of homeliness and character. The cleanliness of our room and shower room could not be faulted. The food was fantastic and... More

This is a small family run hotel up in the mountains in Tuscany- a real gem. Gavinana is not in the least bit a tourist town- it is real Italy and a great place to base yourself for walking, sightseeing, or just relaxing ( we did a bit of each but maybe less of the walking than our fellow travellers)....

Ignore the previous review !! The hotel food is great. All fresh food and superbly cooked. I have no idea what the previous reviewer is going on about. OK the toaster is a bit ' tired ' but that's about it. The family owners are great fun, and our Saga Rep, Suzanne was just brilliant. ( Don't mention George Clooney... More
