Emiliano and family welcomed us with open arms!! The place was wonderful and the hosts were SO kind and thoughtful!
Bitte nicht weitersagen, dass man bei Emiliano die perfekten Toskana-Ferien verbringen kann! Bloß nicht zu laut sagen, dass das Apartment wunderschön renoviert, groß genug für eine Familie und komfortabel ist. Lieber nicht allen sagen, dass man hier tagelang einfach im Garten verbringen kann, schwimmen, den Blick über die Olivenbäume schweifen lassen kann. Besser nicht erwähnen, dass man abends aus dem Fenster die Skyline von Siena sieht und dass man von hier sämtliche toskanischen Sehenswürdigkeiten gut erreichen kann. Bitte nicht verraten, dass dies der ideale Ort für Kinder ist - mit Hühnern, Hasen, Spielmöglichkeiten. Bitte vor allem nicht erwähnen, dass man hier wahnsinnig gut essen kann, abwechslungsreich, authentisch, frisch aus dem Garten - von Emiliano gekocht und wunderbar präsentiert. Und natürlich auf keinen Fall weitersagen, dass Emiliano und seine Familie die besten Gastgeber sind, die man sich vorstellen kann: Immer freundlich, zuvorkommend, liebevoll. Nicht verraten, bitte - damit nicht La Gavina plötzlich im "Lonely Planet" auftaucht und auf einmal jeder hierhin will.
Behalten wir es also lieber als unser Geheimnis, dass es hier ganz wunderbar ist, wir verraten es keinem (außer sämtlichen Freunden, die wir schon neugierig gemacht haben) - und kommen wieder!
Vielen Dank, Emiliano! Wir sehen uns - in La Gavina!
If you are looking for a little slice heaven in Tuscany then look no further than La Gavina. You'll be blown away by the hosts, their meticulously maintained farmhouse and, most of all, their food. I've been around the world and have not ever found a place that offers such value and such service. My family and our good friends who joined us here for a week knew it was going to memorable, but Emigliano and his family/staff far exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be going back, but next time we'll be returning not just as guest, but as friends as well. Mille grazie, Emigliano e compania! Baci.
...non ho parole (email hidden)metimes our work is hard, you know...but at the end of the day we are out in the dark, in the middle of the sleeping forest, under a sky full of stars...we breath the freshness of the air and we can really feel to be part of this universe, part of all thoughts full of love of all the people who have looked for a small period of their lives the same stars and the same sky! You are more than a friend, you are part of our life! Grazie!
La Gavina and its hosts far far exceeded our expectations. We stayed for a week in the "apartment" in mid June and everything about the place was magical. Everything was well appointed and the place was so clean upon arrival that it made us feel like we were the first people to ever use the place. The surrounding gardens were beautiful and the hosts were there when you needed them, but not when you wanted privacy. Emiliano's cooking was out of this world ... best we've had on our 3 week tour of Italy. Hosts were super helpful with travel guidance providing maps, suggestions and travel tips. La Gavina is perfectly situated in Tuscany for day trips to Siena, Florence and several mountain towns. Spent my last day sitting under an ancient apricot tree just soaking up the loveliness. Charming, charming, charming! We'll be back.
This was the highlight of our trip to Italy! We stayed in the 3 bedroom/3 bath apartment with my family. The apartment was perfect for 3 couples and the beds were very comfortable.
Do not miss out on the dinners provided by Emiliano and his family! They were some of the best meals I've had anywhere and the family style dining was a great way to get to know people.
The location is perfect for relaxing days in the country or visiting the surrounding towns. Emiliano also provided us with a great map for hiking trails in the area. He even picked us up in a neighboring town, Monteriggiano, after the 3+ hour hike there.
Thank you Emiliano and we're already looking forward to visiting again.

What can I say ... I love nature, music, good food, traveling backpacker, mingle and be enriched by other cultures .... these are all the passions that, in many ways, I was able to cultivate in my life. I have a degree in Natural Sciences, and I admired and studied whales in the waters of Newfoundland (Canada). I played (that is, I sang, as I'm primarily cioa singer!) with many musical groups, and in particular with the Texado music was almost a profession for me...I just can not imagine my life without notes! I am a graduate of the hotel school in Chianciano Terme, near Siena. I made the kitchen my main job and pleasure to sit at the table with sincere friends or with my family one of my more "tasty" beloved!
I love to imagine looking at the world through the eyes of my two beautiful children and wonder at the beauty contained in the small things.
I like to think that today's children will be able to possess a new wisdom and they will build, for themselves and for their children, a better world to live in peace and in love.
