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.

Lovely pool, wonderful views

4 of 5
We return yearly to this area, and to Homeaway to provide accommodation that matches the description on the website. Col di Maturaia has a slightly daunting drive down to the villa, but this results in seclusion, wonderful views, and the entertainment of wild boar in the orchard at night. The aspect of the pool meant we got sun until late in the day - often dragging ourselves indoors at 8pm. Locally the small town of Pieve has a great range of local stores with a baker, butcher, greengrocer, and gelato/coffee bar to name our more frequented ones. (Do try the regional "hand" shaped bread). There are really good supermarkets in the town too. We drove to Florence (2 hours) but enjoyed buying leather bags/satchels in Lucca (50 mins), where we found local workshops. Castiglione provided our favourite meal of the holiday, in an unassuming restaurant inside the walls we were served wonderful homemade food.We were lucky with the weather, but good wi fi and comfy sofas would have meant we were covered either way.

Perfect relaxing retreat

5 of 5
Il Turello is completely secluded offering the perfect relaxing holiday. It is situated on a wooded hillside giving great views of the valley below. The patio and pool area were a highlight, we spent a lot of time relaxing here. As well as a well equipped kitchen there is a wood fired pizza oven and BBQ's so you are never short of options if you don't want to go out to eat. Inside there is fireplace which we made use of on some of the colder September evenings. The whole property was clean and well maintained. Barga is close by offering a selection of restaurants and smaller shops. Slightly further away in Gallicano there is a large supermarket. As other reviews say the first drive up to Il Turello is a bit daunting, however you soon get used to it. We managed it in a fairly large automatic estate car in the rain without issue, a 4x4 is really not necessary. Our 10 days went by far too quickly and we would love to return if we get the chance.
