Holiday rental accommodation choices include idealistic Tuscan villas and secluded stone cottages.

Things to do in Fosciandora, Italy

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.

I am recommending this farmhouse to all of my family and friends! And I would love to go back one day. It’s well restored and maintained and very clean. It is located in a very private setting set back from the road . The photos on the site show exactly what you get. The surroundings were very peaceful and relaxing. The house is in a quiet village and it is perfect for relaxation and equally well placed for daily trips to Lucca, Pisa and Florence. Close to the beach and ideal for exploring the heart of Tuscany. Lorella welcomed us and immediately advised us of places to see and good restaurants to dine. She was very kind and gave us all the needed information. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet stay after a busy day of being a tourist in Tuscany.

The kids spent leisurely days swimming in the villa's pool while we parents relaxed nearby and enjoyed the gorgeous view from villa's patio. Although the historical sites and gelato in Lucca beckoned us each morning, we felt like we never wanted to leave the comfort of the villa. Highlights of our trip included Guido's pizza-making in the villa's brick-oven and Cristina's amazing Italian meals. Our kids are begging to go back! With three floors, the villa is perfect for family reunions or for families or couples traveling together.

Having elevator was perfect for my 87 years old mum. The flat itself has everything you could want, the bathroom has a good shower and a jacuzzi bathtub. It also has a washing machine. The sitting room is very comfortable, with quality couches, and those amazing views. There is useful reading material in English about Lucca. And importantly, the beds, large and in separate bedrooms with good cupboard space is also very comfortable. The highlight for us was the space. There is a high quality grocery/delicatessen/wine shop practically next door (to the right from the front door) selling the best of Tuscan produce, and a very large supermarket tucked away downstairs in an arcade to the left just a minute's walk away. We tried a variety of local restaurants, and preferred the unpretentious osteria which offer limited menus of good home style Tuscan cooking and decent house wine for very reasonable prices. Lucca is a small city, and all its major attractions are within an easy stroll of the apartment. It also makes a good base to explore the Tuscan countryside or for a day trip to Florence. Not having a car we booked a day trip with local guide, Donatella, to visit some wineries on the hills to try the famous Lucca wines. This was a great day out with a very engaging and knowledgeable guide. Overall, we highly recommend a stay in this Lucca flat
