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.

Places to visit on holiday in Pieve Fosciana, Italy

If the tranquillity and isolation which comes with a holiday villa in Pieve Fosciana gets a little too much, the town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana is only a 15 minute drive away. Here visitors will find several bars, cafes and restaurants where many happy afternoons can be spent gorging on local food and wine. The town also has a local market on Thursday mornings, which is an ideal place for self-catering visitors to stock up on fresh local produce.

The medieval town of Barga is also only 15km from Pieve Fosciana, with its beautiful Duomo or cathedral. The Opera Barga festival is the highlight of the town’s calendar, held bi-annually in July, with performances from local and sometimes world-renowned opera singers.

The villa is very well equipped with everything you need for a great stay. We very much enjoyed the use of the pool especially since the days were very hot during our stay. There is no air confitioning but fans were provided to aid sleep which was appreciated. The owner came twice during our stay to clean the pool which was appreciated, though we would have preferred this to take place in the morning as cleaning precluded our use of the pool when it was done around midday and took quite a long time when we were waiting to take a dip. Contrary to previous reviews Fornoli now has only one restaurant (selling only pizzas - which were very good) the others appear to have closed. Bagmi di Lucca has several though, the one behind the car park was a delight. The Coop supermarket was very handy for supplies with another Conrad at Bagni which was slightly larger and better stocked. Siena is a must see, we preferred it to Florence. Lucca and Barga are well worth a visit too. If you are able also make a trip to San Gimignano and Voltera which are both delightful. A word of caution many of the towns museums / Duomos are closed on Mondays One small criticism the drive up to the villa is incredibly steep and the slow electric gates make this more difficult, but there is a parking place at the bottom of the drive for the more feint hearted.

A little difficult to find, but a phone call had the owner meet us at a local restaurant and direct us to the cottage. The owner Giancarlo was very welcoming and despite the language difficulty he made sure we had a great holiday and was very helpful. All the local shops and restaurants we visited were great, all in all a lovely relaxing two weeks.
