CAR HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
We had a wonderful time and the host is so friendly and helpful!!!
Beautiful house and a great location
Everything was clean and the house with the garden was just really beautiful. Flaviano and his family were such kind and friendly hosts. We really enjoyed our stay and recommend it to anybody!
1 week tuscany with 4 families
Very nice property with five distinct apartments all able to host a family. With 17 people we had more than enough room and amenities. The large indoor eating area is situated in the managers house so if the weather doesn't allow outdoor eating and you wish to eat together you have to ask the manager. The village is cosy and have cafés, ice cream place, bakers, atm's, food stores, butchers and more, so all you need really. The roads to the village are quite small and winding over the hills if you come from Modena or Aulla, so pills for car sickness can be good for kids. The manager and his family are super friendly and helpful, and threw us a pizza party with top notch pizzas. All in all an amazing week!
Always helpful and sympathetic host
An area where many attractions can be easily reached by car. The host's pizza evening and his arrangement with local dishes can be recommended
Arrival 2nd July 2022

Arrival 16th July 2022
Wonderful family vacation and birthday party
We felt very comfortable in Flaviano's house. The pool is great and the grounds very cozy. The small apartments gave privacy and we also had space to have breakfast or cook together. We had Flaviano and his team cook for us twice, it was very nice and delicious! But we were also able to eat very well. Everyone was very nice. Flaviano was extremely helpful and easily accessible. There are many pretty towns and destinations in the area. A perfect place for a family gathering, highly recommended!
Arrival 25th June 2022
We took our parents for a surprise holiday for their 80th birthday. We had a group of 20 persons and really enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere of Pieve Fosciana. Flaviano made excellent pizza on our arrival evening. Overall, the villa was perfect for our needs since there were separate appartments.
Arrival 11th June 2022
Top holiday home with the family!
We had a wonderful week in honor of my mother's 80th birthday. The host warmly welcomed us with freshly baked foccaccias! Everyone had their own apartment and yet we could also cook and eat together in the lovely room downstairs. The pizza night was a great success and also the tastiest pizzas we have ever eaten. Really a top house if you go with several families.

Great stay! The owner was very welcoming. The property is superb
Arrival 31 July 2021
Lovely villa in a small town, with many possibilities to visit the surrounding mountains and national parks. The villa is separated into different apartments, which is extremely useful for families or groups that sometimes want to withdraw to their own apartment. Owner was also really helpful and made our holiday even better. Would certainly recommend!

Wonderful week with our great travel company!
We had a wonderful week in Flavian's fantastic house / farm! We were 19 people, but there were beds in total for 25 people. Large apartments with rustic large bedrooms, with comfortable beds. A pool area that was so fresh was cleaned every morning. We grilled ourselves a few times by the pool. Flavian cooked a great dinner for us, on my husband's 50th birthday. We got on sc was amed when the pasta was made. One evening Flavian made pizzas for us in the stone oven down by the nice outdoor area, where we ate every meal. Flavian helped us book a wine tasting, and we could ask him for advice on most activities. That said, a wonderful week, we recommend this farm with great warmth!
5 stars June 2019
Accommodations as described. Plenty of space. Super pool seating and pool loungers made of wood and metal high quality. Outdoor kitchen also great - Recommended, let yourself be cooked - Flaviano and family and Marcello afford Italian cuisine at its finest. The pizza evening will also remain unforgettable Overall, we can only recommend the domicile - wonderful location in the middle of Tuscany - day trips to Lucca, Pisa and the sea - travel time about 1 to 1.5 hours from the accommodation. We would have liked to have stayed there even longer.
A unique and wonderful villa for a large group ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The location is great, it’s a five minute walk into the small town of Pieve Fosciana with shops and restaurants and there is a lovely little dairy just across the road for fresh milk. It is a lovely area for walking and also easy to travel to Lucca, Pisa and the surrounding villages.
The villa and grounds are beautiful and the separate apartments were ideal for our large group as each family could have some privacy but we could also enjoy eating and spending time together. Our host was very helpful throughout the holiday and we greatly enjoyed the pizza and pasta making. We had two meals prepared by our host which were excellent and we felt as if we were in a restaurant without having to leave the villa! The lovely swimming pool is looked after very well and there is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy relaxing in the sunshine in this lovely villa.

5 stars Fantastic and totally unique
We have had the most amazing holiday in this unique place.
Both the physical conditions and the owner's welcome were absolutely perfect.
We used 2 times that the owner made dinner for us and it is an experience to be self-catered. We got the most authentic Italian experience, with lots of good food and the kids were allowed to help make pasta so it was a hit for everyone.
Fantastic resort / location and superb hosts ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
What can I say.....well lots in fact and all very positive.
Set in a stunning Tuscan village with amazing scenery all round, Borgo Fosciana is an ideal place for a large group seeking Tuscan bliss.
The village itself is very quaint and picturesque with a fantastic restaurant and local grocery store stock an fantastic selection of local produce, all high quality but keenly priced from meats to wine and fresh produce.
The village is set in a stunning Tuscan valley with high Alpine mountains surrounding. Ideal location for hiking, trail running and mountain biking. The twisting roads are great for motorbiking and road cyclists alike.
The facilities at Villa are exceptional. Very clean and maintained to a high standard, you will find everything you need for a great break. If you're a foodie, you're in for a treat. Our hosts Flaviano with his mum and dad and chef Marcello, are exceptional cooks. We were hosts to a pizza making session with kids, Italian night where pasta and breads baked fresh on sight with more lessons on offer (complimentary experience). Flaviano makes all his own red wine and Prosecco which both are amazing and very good value. We were treated to a wine tasting evening which was brilliant fun and we helped bottle fresh wine. The BBQ area was great and a few servings of Grappo went down a storm!
Above everything, Flaviano and family were exceptional and made this holiday fantastic. Their hospitality is second to none, offering to bring us for grocery shop and to local train station, he couldn't do enough to help. Flaviano's knowledge of local area, food and wine is fantastic!!!!
Location wise, very convenient for exploring local villages and to train station for trips to Lucca, Florence and Pisa. Highly recommend from every aspect!!!! Will be back.
