Location Located in the heart of the village of Gavinana opposite the town church, the hotel is close to a small selection of shops and cafe bars. Gavinana, at an altitude of 820 metres, is a hidden gem far removed from the tourist trail and it offers an authentic taste of everyday life in rural Tuscany. There's a bus service to other villages nearby and the region is excellent for hiking. Gavinana is also close enough to explore the classic art centres of Florence, Lucca and Siena - with their numerous museums, galleries, cafes and restaurants - so you can easily experience both sides of Tuscany.
