Do yourselves a favour and stay at La Gavina. Hands down one of the best places we have ever stayed at. Emiliano and his staff are not only super friendly, but also amazing cooks and very helpful with any questions you may have about the area. The rooms were clean, tidy and spacious. The beds were comfortable and the location quiet but also near enough to Siena and surrounding quant villages.

Wow, not sure what else I could say that other reviewers have not said already! La Gavina was magical in every way. My wife and I arrived after 15 days of travel in Europe. We had visited Dublin, Belfast, Rome, Venice and Florence. La Gavina was a very much welcomed break from the hustle of the cities and exactly what we needed. Emiliano is the most courteous and hospitable host you could hope for. The evening dinners were the best meals we had in Italy, hands down. We were even lucky enough for Emiliano to play some songs on his guitar one night. If you're looking for a peace and quiet with a scenic Tuscan backdrop then look no further.

What a truly memorable experience. Emiliano is a wonderful host and cook - I highly recommend getting back in time for his delicious dinners. By far, the best value for a meal on our trip. He was very helpful in answering all our questions and helping us with driving and day trip recommendations as well. Such a relaxing environment to soak in the Tuscan sun!

Gavina is our Tuscany dream place. The farmhouse is located in the center of woods and surrounded by olive trees, vineyard, fruit trees and chicken farm. I love the open space dining room. Kitchen is always packed with people, food and appetizing smell. Every night there has been group dinner with different menu. We had very nice rabbit with herbs, homemade tiramisu, cheesecake, soup...then go to bed with a happy smile. From the beginning, Emiliano has been so helpful with attention to all detail for a comfortable stay. All guests are like family and spend great dinner time together. Thanks to our excellent chef Micheal, and Alysia, papa Sergio and Mama Ellorea. Good room, good dinner, lively farm, nice surrounding, good company. Great holiday. Thank you Emiliano and all. Lastly, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) map and GPS makes the trip to Tuscany a lot easier!

When you are tired of the crowds and traffic of Rome, Florence or Venice make sure you visit La Gavina in the Tuscany countryside. Such a beautiful location for hiking, biking and nature. Emiliano, his family and staff are the most welcoming and warm hosts I have experienced in Italy. And the food!!!! Home cooked, fresh, organic produce and meats. It doesn't get any better than this. Do yourself a favor and check out La Gavina. Wonderful people, wonderful place. Thank you so much Emiliano!!!

Agriturismo La Gavina is a sweet little find in the Tuscan hills near Siena. It's small + family run and Emiliano and family offer warm hospitality, a generous dinner and overall a great value for money experience. La Gavina is accessible by taxi/bus but we definitely recommend hiring a car for the best access to Siena and surrounds.

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.
