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.

The villa and grounds are absolutely beautiful, the furnishings are comfortable, and the pool is magnificent. Sonia was a wonderful host who helped us to organize day trips and excursions into the surrounding countryside. She also helped us hire a local babysitter and a local cook who made dinner for us several nights. The views from the villa, high in the Tuscan hills, are breathtaking. It was the vacation of a lifetime, and I will never forget it. I can't recommend this villa highly enough. It is a true treasure.

We were a bit unlucky with the weather, so it was important to have a good shelter! The cottage was perfect - terrific view and very cosy inside, with a log fire in the kitchen which made chilly evenings very snug indeed. It's a great spot and an ideal base for exploring the surrounding hills. Remote, away from it all feel, yet Lucca within easy striking distance. We hope to return.
