- Very Good
Il Gavillaccio is in a glorious part of Tuscany with motorway access close by [10 kilometers] that provides access to many of Italy's iconic and legendary towns and city's, such as 'Cortona', 'Perugia', 'Siena' and of course the jewell of Tuscany - 'Florence'! The complex of apartments is set high on a ridge with other striking historic buildings [truly beautiful], the store is a short work up the road and around a bend,olive groves are dominant in the landscape. The air is fresh and alive. The apartment is superbly fitted out with all the needs of a traveller included [including broadband internet access], we adored the ambience. Views are spectacular, the pool divine, but out of season when we were there. The apartment ranked for us 10 out of 10, beds are comfy, there's plenty of room to spread out, and the kitchen is equipped with all the requisite cooking utensils supplied. The more adventurous can take a walk in the bush and countryside as we did, or drive into the Chianti vineyard areas including 'Greve in Chianti' which is a small historic town in the world renowned wine region. Driving is a must, as there's heaps to explore. 'Figline Valdarno' is a lovely provincial town which showed us how italians really live. We had an amazing, magic time and the owners are helpful and obliging with meeting our needs. Personally I'd go back again and again given the opportunity. Highly recommended!
“A Little Bit of Heaven”
Il Gavilaccio was the perfect ending to my family's European vacation. After visits to Barcelona and Paris, we arrived at Il Gavillaccio feeling a little tired. We dropped our bags on the lovely tile floors in our beautifully furnished apartment. We looked out window at the amazing scenery and breathed deeply. Ah Yes! This was just what we needed. The place was gorgeous--inside and out and everything was spotless. Lorna Currie and Eugenio Peluso, the owners, were so thoughtful. There was an orchid and a personal note on the dining table, welcoming us. The beautiful Lorna was also very helpful in giving us advice about where to shop and what to do while there. However, we were so delighted with Il Gavillaccio that we spent most of our time on the premises. My husband did not want to leave and our 13 year old daughter declared that "it was awesome" and spent most of her time down by the pool. Il Gavillaccio surpassed our expectations and we will definitely be back.
“holiday at figline valdarno”
This was our 3 th time that we went to Ill Gavillaccio and for the 3th time it was superbe again. We were welcomed in our very clean appartment with fresh flowers on the table. The appartement no. 5 which we had is big, comfortable (all the kitchen equipment you need is there, good beds etc..)and has fantastic views over the Tuscan hills. The village in which Ill Gavillacciois situated is very central in Tuscany: you can easily reach Florence (20 min by train), Siena, Chianti area and we even went to Rome (2,15 hrs by car). Lorna, the manager of Ill Gavillaccio is always willing to help you. For our children (12, 10 an 8 years old)Ill Gavillaccio is one of there favorite holiday destinations: you can always find children in our around the pool, so they always have friends to play with. We highly recommand Ill Gavillaccio.
My family and I have stay at Residence il Gavillacio the last 7 summers. We enjoy the nice equipped appartements, the small gardens to each app. The beatyfull pool-area with the nice garden and a geat view of the tuscan landscape.Miss Lorna and her staff are always very helpfull and friendly and create a nice atmosphere. It is easy to go for trips f.x. in the Chianti, winetasting, Siena. And it is easy to find good places to eat, both cheap and more expensive. To go to Florence it takes only 2omin., or Arezzo 40min., by train from Figline 6km away. Comfortable and no parking-.problems
Amability , kindness and hapiness. Very nice decorated, beautiful items and very calm. Location without any problem, with facilities. The area, the house, geographic situation were great. Notice it should have a sign just down the hill to show the way. Thank You for all.
“RELAX - COMFORT”
Il Gavillaccio is the place to be : to come at yourself, to relax, to do everything what your body needs. The manager Lorna is an amasing woman who does everything for her gests. All the appartments are clean en does have a beautiful furniture. We do stay there every year sinds the year 2000 and are experience stay the same. We love it!
“Holidays at their best...”
This was the second time my wife and I stayad at Il Gavillaccio; first time was in 2007. So we came back, and that says it all: this is an excellent address for a carefree holiday where evrything is as it should be. Upon arrival, Mrs. Lorna Currie requires just a few minutes of your time to fulfil the necessary paperwork, after which she guides you to your home. This is spotless, very wel equipped (we never missed anything), and with a cosy interior and lots of space. The beds are comfortable. The swimming pool is very clean and well maintained, and there are sufficient longchairs, small tables and parasols around it. In the garden (past the swimming pool) is a bbq at the disposal of guests who wish to use it. The setting of Il Gavillaccio is superb and offers a wide and uninhibited vue on the beautiful landscape surrounding it. The grounds are constantly maintained by a gardener. The private parking for the guests is spacious. In fact, the whole domain is vast. None of the interesting cities (Firenze, Lucca, Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa...) are further away than a good hours drive. New this year: an entertainment night (once a week) with cocktails, music and dance. Very pleasant, but guests who do not wish to take part can rest assured: the sound of the music never reaches the homes... All in all we were absolutely happy at Il Gavillaccio: guests are treated als kings and queens and with lots of respect for their privacy. Mrs. Lorna Curry is correct and friendly, and she responds quickly and effectively if a problem occurs. We will certainly return there! PS: excuse me for my English (not my mother tongue).
“Memories of a lifetime”
If you are looking for an authentic stay in Tuscany go no further than Il Gavillaccio. It is decorated in keeping with true Tuscan style, spacious, comfortable and everything you need has been thought of. Il Gavillaccio is located within the quiet Tuscan community of Il Gaville and you are surrounded by the beautiful countryside. Every restaurant recommended by Lorna was a memorable experience especially the community run restaurant - what a find and only 5 minutes away. We were perfectly based to do many day trips, Florence, Siena, San gimignano, etc. We had a wonderful time and Lorna and her family were extremely accomodating. I just wish we could have stayed longer - 5 nights wasn't enough.
“A perfect place for a family”
The flat was big, well equipped, including the kitchen (we like to cook ourselves now and then), the cleaning faultles and the surroundings (paths, parking place, pool area) were kept nicely. The Saturday bar and buffet was a great success for both young and old, and the pool attracted us all because of the nice water, the fine chairs and the beautiful landscape around us. Lorna and her family were helpful, attentive and effective. All financial matters were solved and dealt with professionally and honestly. Gavillaccio is placed in the heart of culture and nature and we enjoyed both. The area is quiet and very safe. We consider the rent very fair, in fact is was extreemely good value. We strongly recommend Il Gavillaccio to other visitors of Tuscany.
