The Friends of Tuscany agency manage all aspects of your booking with tailored information to help you get the most from your holiday. We can advise on a shopping delivery service, home made meals on arrival, wine tours, children’s activities, wild swimming spots, festivals, events, and restaurant recommendations based on our personal knowledge of the area built up in the past 30 years.

Villa La Fosciana is a 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 ornithologist 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

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.

Garfagnana is 'Hidden Tuscany' at its best. With its' stunning scenery it is the best area in Tuscany for walking and outdoor activities. Friends of Tuscany are the oldest agency in the area, and we have close ties with an Outdoor Activities company who offer many international class adventures including electric mountain biking.
We can also offer Art classes with a well known artist, excursions to the Cinque Terre, Florence and Lucca, visits to vineyards, historical guided tours and Italian cooking lessons.

Friends of Tuscany can help you arrange a pre-arrival shopping service, and also a prepared Tuscan meal for your arrival.

Free iI-Fi

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

Pure relaxation


By Wolf-Hagen K. on 05-Sep-2016

Beautiful house with large pool for six people. Great views, peace and nice towns in the area. Very friendly and competent local contact person; very good information in advance. In any case: a recommendation.

Peaceful, stunning views, beautifully maintained.


By Richard C. on 08-Aug-2016

The Villa is everything it is advertised to be. Perched on a ridge overlooking Pieve Fosciana it has panoramic views through 270 degrees. Inside it is well furnished with comfortable old furniture and large picture windows face west and north with brilliant views but avoiding the sun. Three bedrooms downstairs, and effectively below ground level on the south side remain cool.

Outside a neat garden with fruit trees. borders a spacious veranda and terrace with the pool. The pool is maintained daily by the owners, remaining clean without over chlorination.

On the downside, the kitchen although adequately equipped is small and would be difficult for large scale catering. The wi-fi signal is poor and can only be picked up in certain parts of the garden although Vitorrio did tell me that he has plans to enhance this. The track up to the villa is challenging but can be driven with care.

The owners, Vittorrio and his family were very kind and welcoming. Their attendance to see to the pool and garden was not intrusive and the few queries we had were dealt with swiftly after sending a text message.

Our holiday was delightfully restful, a day trip to Florence by train not withstanding. The local countryside is stunningly beautiful. Highlights included a visits to Pisa, Florence, Lucca. An evening stroll around Sillico ( across a steep valley from the villa) with dinner at the restaurant there Was very atmospheric. A hike up to the Pannia del Crocce was strenuous but rewarded us with stunning views.

Finally I should mention that the booking through the Friends of Tuscany team in the UK was painless. Andrew Mckean responded to several e-mail queries promptly and clearly with up to date local knowledge.

Total unwind at stunning house


By Phil on 24-Aug-2014

We fell in love with this place as soon as we got there. Stunningly situated amongst jaw dropping scenery. The house suited all our requirements of a relaxing holiday. The infinity pool gave us several days of total relax in superb weather. We used the nearby train station to take day trips to Lucca and Florence admiring the scenery on the way. We ate out at different restaurants locally most days at very reasonable prices. All in all I would highly recommend this house and definitely consider going back

Natural Paradise


By Rolf G. on 10-Jun-2013

The information in the online listing regarding location, facilities etc. were correct. Unfortunately, the photos can only partially reflect the beauty and location of the villa. We were positively surprised by the size and the beauty and would recommend Villa Fosciana at any time. The villa is in a very good condition and was clean and well maintained. The welcome by the owners was warm and the care good. The kitchen is well equipped, unfortunately, too small for seven people. The barbecue was rusty and the poorly stored wood did not burn very well, for this price we expect more from a grill. Definitely worth mentioning is the spacious and clean maintained swimming pool. We, 4 adults and 3 children, enjoyed the villa for a week. We visited Castelnuovo di Garfagnana (5 km) and Sillico (7 km). Shops and restaurants are in Pieve Fosciana (2 km) enough available. Viareggio and Lucca are reachable by car in a short time and worth a visit.
