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.

Lovely apartment, good location.

4 of 5
Mrs Sonia,as always was very accommodating and pleasure to deal with. The apartment was very nice, clean well equipped and tastefully decorated with nice terrace. We have visited Lucca a few times now and will probably do so again in the future. Unfortunately on this occasion we were disappointed with this particular booking through this site, due to the fact that one of the main reasons for booking it was that it stipulates in the details that there are bikes with the apartment. It was extremely disappointing to find out on arrival that it does not actually have bikes and as a result of that we had to hire bikes from a local hire shop. It would be perhaps prudent for homeandaway to ensure property information is correct before advertising to avoid further customer disappointment.

Clean, tidy, very beautiful location. Great holiday home.

5 of 5
Very clean & tidy home, very beautiful location. We're a family of four and the house and location worked great for us. Lots of space for the children to play safely, and with the big courtyard right outside the house, breakfast and lunch outside everyday was a lovely feature. The pool is on a separate veranda to the main courtyard so adds an additional level of safety for those with younger children, it was very clean and very relaxing to lounge around with such lovely view - water a bit cold for long dips when we stayed in October, in the summer it would be fantastic for long afternoon in the pool. All the family really enjoyed this stay, and it is right up the top of the list for a return visit next year. :)
