Make a holiday rental home or villa in Pieve Fosciana, Italy your home away from home

Pieve Fosciana, hidden in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, offers visitors the chance to leave the hustle and bustle of the city far behind and relax in beautiful green surroundings. Nestled on the side of a hill amidst fields and forest, visitors can get out and explore the countryside or relax next to their own private pool and simply admire the view from their holiday villa.

Things to do in Pieve Fosciana, Italy

One of the best ways to appreciate the beauty of the surroundings is to get out and explore the area around Pieve Fosciana on foot, and there are lots of opportunities for walking in the Garfagnana National Park which surrounds Pieve Fosciana. The town is at the foothills of the Appenines, which also makes for several more challenging hikes around the area to take in the spectacular views across the Serchio Valley.

Visitors should also spend at least some time exploring the small town of Pieve Fosciana itself, which has several sights of cultural significance such as Saint Magno Church and the Tower of Silico. The small town was originally settled by the ancient Romans, and has ever since been dedicated to agriculture. While the town is not particularly lively, there are several great restaurants where visitors can sample local Tuscan dishes, including wonderful fresh pasta, all for far less than you would pay in the city.

The location is stunning and the property itself has been lovingly restored, the photo's of the restoration and family history were fantastic to see. It's amazing how the family have managed to keep so much of the original character of the property AND incorporate all the home comforts. We had everything we needed and more, even having a go at making our own bread in the bread maker (the recipe worked out so well we made it twice!). Frank S's description of the property in his review sums it up perfectly. We spent most of our week just relaxing by the pool, eating well, exploring the river and enjoying each other's company, such a great escape from our hectic lives back home. We loved the wildlife too, including butterflies, lizards and beautiful mock hummingbird moths and the moon and stars at night were magical. We did go to the supermarket in Pieve and the bar with the balcony and great view which was recommended in the book. We ventured out on one day to Castelnuevo, where we found the recommended restaurant 'Il Vecchio Mulino' which was a great experience. We were sat down at a long table (made from the wood of old wine boxes) next to an Italian family, and brought a number of courses of local produce - and the biggest mortadella I've ever seen, carved infront of us! Real characters and fantastic food. We were lucky to get a seat as it filled up fast. We had an English couple sit next to us who filled us in on what the local newspaper was saying about the area, and told us of the food festival in their village the following weekend (unfortunately we were leaving the following day). All in all a truly memorable experience! Adele was also fantastic, great communication beforehand and also while we were there. We would absolutely love to return, and explore the area a bit more. We may try to take some more of the family next time! Thanks again for a truly memorable holiday!

My family and I have travelled worldwide and always stopped in hotels so this was the first time we had ever rented a house and we were a little nervous and apprehensive as we all hear and see horror stories on the news and via social media about holidays going wrong BUT book with confidence Lorraine was always quick to reply to any and all emails when booking and only a phone call away when we arrived even late on Sunday. Thank you Lorraine. The House 1 hour 30 minutes from Pisa. You gain access to the house via a private half mile long drive way with security Gates half way down. The pictures of the house and grounds do not do it any justice it's better in real life. The house is immaculate, well maintained and very peaceful/quiet the owners are the best we arrived late Sunday evening and had no opportunity to buy any food so they went back home and russelled up some food for us and brought it back with a homemade cake about three days into our holiday they left us a basket full of fresh produce and vegetables and a second home cake for the start of the second week of our holiday. The owner's come to the house every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to clean the pool not that you will ever noticed them there because they come at around 6:30 a.m. they clean the house from top to bottom every Saturday at 2:30 p.m. even kept us supplied with dishwasher tablets and washing detergent for use in washing machine it's the little things that make a holiday special and Mr and Mrs Giorgi are the perfect hosts. Thank you xx
