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.

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.
