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.

Summer is a great time to visit, and there are a number of festivals that take place during this period. These include the festival of the ‘emigrant tourist’ in the Moscardini Villa, and the pilgrimage to the shrine of the Stella of Migliano.

Wunderschöner Urlaub

5 of 5
Wunderschönes altes charmantes Haus in herrlicher Lage oben in einem kleinen Weiler mit fantastischem Blick über das Tal. Wir haben besonders die Aussicht vom Balkon aus genossen, dies war unser Liebingsplatz zum Essen und Lesen. Daneben gab es noch einen schönen Sitzplatz auf der Terrasse, zu jeder Tageszeit findet man bei Hitze ein schattiges Plätzchen rund um's Haus. Hier leisteten uns oft zwei nette Katzen Gesellschaft, die sich immer über eine Futterration gefreut haben. Lucca ist eine wunderschöne Stadt (hier gibt es auch einen großen Esselunga-Supermarkt zum Einkaufen mit toller Auswahl), Florenz haben wir mit dem Zug von Lucca aus besucht. Ansonsten gibt es Wanderungen in der näheren Umgebung, leckere Restaurants finden sich nach 10-20 Minuten Autofahrt in der Nähe. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen, wir waren alle drei begeistert.

Fantastic peaceful hideaway

5 of 5
The property was lovely and comfortable, high in the mountains - the roads were better than I expected. Peaceful, quite remote but we found a great restaurant not too far away. If you want to get away from everything this is perfect. Amazing views, owner very helpful and left us some of his own wine.
