Make a holiday rental home or farmhouse in Fosciandora, Italy your home away from home

Fosciandora is a 15th century town located on the border of Tuscany and Emilia, situated in the Lucca Province. The municipality of Fosciandora contains a number of villages and hamlets, meaning that by visiting one place you will get to see many others, without having to make long journeys to do so. Holiday rental accommodation choices include idealistic Tuscan villas and secluded stone cottages.

Things to do in Fosciandora, Italy

The small centre of the town has a medieval castle, church and tower, and one of the most important monuments in the area, in the form of the Santuario della Madonna della Stella, which has be standing since 1662. The area is also home to several fortifications, including the Fortress of Ceserana.

Heading for the outlying areas of the town is rewarded with an excellent scenic drive (or walk). The road climbs gently uphill, past the castles of Palleroso, Perpoli and Fiatonne, and into the surrounding countryside of olive groves, chestnut woods and roaming fields. If you have ever dreamed of a true Tuscan experience, then this is it. Make sure you take a bottle of local wine to enjoy when you stop to relax and take in the views.

We were shown where to park the car and then took the lift directly from the garage to the top floor. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well furnished and spacious. Sonia gave us ample information about Lucca and recommended other places to visit by car. We didn't make full use of the roof terrace during our short stay, but it really was a luxury to relax outside with a glass of wine after a hard day's sightseeing. NB. There is a market on Thursdays which blocks the exit onto the street from the garage. Beware if you intend using your car on that day.

We loved being within a small Italian village, everyone very friendly. The owners provided an excellent set of instructions before we left and Doreen and Sofia further help after we arrived. The villa was spacious and had everything we needed, a further plus was a very comfortable living room with lots of books and dvd/tv if you needed. We had excellent weather so were outdoors and in the pool most days but had nice trips out to local mountain villages and Lucca (sightseeing and market). Would definitely recommend the villa to others and hope to return ourselves next year.
