We stayed at Villa Gaville for five nights in September (2013). I have nothing but praise to offer while making reference to this place. Jamal was by far the most memorable host we had during our 8 week European holiday. Breakfasts and dinner were as good as anything in high quality restaurants, all done by Jamal. Jamal was very helpful in designing a holiday plan for us, highlighting places to vist while we were there. Certainly a visit to Florence is a must but the Chianti trail that was recommended was great. I would certainly recommend that a stay here is done with a car as well as most places are some distance away. I would certainly be staying here again in the future.
