Il Gavillaccio [§]Figline Valdarno (FI)
Gaville is mentioned in the Divine Comedy because a florentine nobleman, Francesco de Cavalcanti, was killed by the inhabitants of the ancient castle.
For revenge, the florentines destroyed the castle.What has remained today is the medieval village and up until a few years ago were the ruins of an ancient structure annexed to the castle.Today this old complex has been restored and brought back to life, respecting its original characteristics and using traditional materials but yet offering all of the modern comforts that one may desire.
