VILLA FOSCIANA

Castelnuovo di Garfagnana Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa with 3/4 Bedrooms, Sleeps 7/10, Large Grounds, Private Pool, Barn Annexe

Villa La Fosciana is a recently restored farmhouse villa with a large swimming pool in private grounds of fields and forest of particular interest to lovers of nature. The owner is a well known naturalist and guests will love the atmospheric grounds of the estate. Villa Fosciana is in the National Park of the wonderful Garfagnana area, arguably the most scenically beautiful part of Tuscany.

Set above the village of Pieve Fosciana, with fantastic views from every angle of the house, the villa is the perfect refuge from the stress of modern living whilst being near the market town of Castelnuovo and the numerous other villages of the area. The 3 bedroomed villa can be hired on its own, or together with a luxury barn, increasing the capacity to 10

Reached by a tree lined avenue, the Villa Fosciana has been beautifully restored preserving the ancient chestnut beams and terracotta floors typical in Tuscany. The villa is furnished with taste and elegance throughout, with interesting antique furniture. As the estate has been owned by the family for centuries, portraits of their ancestors adorn the walls, showing a strong link not only with an aristocratic past but also with the rustic ambience of the simple rural Garfagnana life.

The most striking aspect of the restoration of the house has been the creation of the enclosed terrace, now part of the living area, which has 2 walls almost entirely constructed of enormous windows, giving a dramatic view of the Garfagnana, and the fantastic sunsets which can be observed from this part of the valley. The main part of the large living room has an imposing open fireplace, comfortable and stylish furniture, an elegant dining table and small, fully equiped modern kitchen. There are 3 lovely bedrooms, 2 double and one twin,all with en-suite bathrooms and doors to the solarium.

The romantic little house a few metres away, known as Casa Rossa, can be hired along with the villa farmhouse. Casa Rossa has also been reconstructed with an eye on traditional detail. It is self contained with a double mezzanine bedroom and a comfortable open plan lounge with a fully-equipped kitchen.

What really makes Villa Fosciana different from other holiday villas in Tuscany with pools are the extensive grounds which hold chestnut and alpine woods, fruit orchards, olive groves and cultivated terraces. There are paths throughout, giving access to a private, romantic and safe natural environment, with the whole range of the unique mix of flora and fauna which can be found in the Garfagnana.

A farmer lives closeby and can be found tending the fields and forest.

This is a villa of the highest quality offering a uniquely peaceful holiday.

Die Angaben im Online-Inserat bezüglich Lage, Ausstattung etc. waren korrekt. Leider können die Fotos die Schönheit und die Lage der Villa nur bedingt wiedergeben. Wir waren von der Grösse und der Schönheit positiv überrascht und würden die Villa Fosciana jederzeit gerne weiterempfehlen. Die Villa ist in einem sehr guten Zustand und war sauber und gepflegt. Der Empfang durch die Besitzer war herzlich und die Betreuung gut. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, leider, für sieben Leute zu klein. Der Gartengrill war rostig und das schlecht gelagerte Holz hat nicht sehr gut gebrannt, für diesen Preis erwarten wir mehr von einem Grill. Unbedingt erwähnenswert ist der grosszügige und sauber gepflegte Swimmingpool. Wir, 4 Erwachsen und 3 Kinder, genossen die Villa für eine Woche. Wir besuchten Castelnuovo di Garfagnana (5 km) und Sillico (7 km). Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants sind in Pieve Fosciana (2 km) genügend vorhanden. Viareggio und Lucca sind mit dem Auto in kurzer Zeit erreichbar und eine Reise wert.

Garfagnana is the best area in Tuscany for walking. We have connections with a local outdoor activities centre, which offers guided walks and climbing, canoeing and world class gorge walking amongst other things.

Gafagnana is also famous in Tuscany for the great value and quality of its food, usually made using the best of local ingredients. A full midweek lunch including coffee and wine is usually 9/10 euros, with an evening main course typically costing 7-10 euros.

We give detailed information and recommendations.

From Pisa to Lucca , then Castelnuovo. Detailed directions will be given. An English speaking mini-bus airport pick-up service can be arranged at a cost of 90 euros e/w.
