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

What a gem. Up in the Tuscan hills. This is a small family run hotel. We were made very welcome by all the family. Rooms are basic but very clean. 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

I am beginning to wonder if I stayed at the same place as the other reviewers. The albergo is lovely, situated in the central square - but the food is dire!!! Breakfast consists of stale sugary croissants, undrinkable instanf coffee, slices of shiny English-style ham, shiny rashers of not fully cooked bacon, no fruit, fruit yoghurt pots, a toaster that...

Family run, central village location central to splendid walking country. Very friendly. This was a family-run hotel that made fine meals. Lots of stairs. Good for visits to Sienna, Pisa, Lucca. If you are lucky (we were not) the local observatory offers public open evenings.

This wonderful typical family run hotel gave us everything we could have wished for! The friendly atmosphere was created by all members of the family who welcomed us into 'their home' & made us all feel very welcome. The dining experience was of a high standard & we felt that we experienced the true Tuscany. The rooms were basic but... More
