“Great location and accommodation”
Reviewed 29 October 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We spent a really enjoyable week staying in Villino in Pieve Fosciana. The house was renovated in true rustic Tuscan style with beautiful colours throughout and had plenty of space with a lovely roof terrace for relaxing after swimming in the fantastic pool which had the added bonus of being chlorine free. The garden around the pool was beautifully kept and spacious with great views of the mountains. We were not expecting the owner to be onsite but Flaviano could not have been more welcoming to us. He was always happy to help with any information we needed and recommendations on places to visit. He also treated us to a very informative day showing us how he milled his own locally grown maize into flour at the nearby watermill. He then gave as an amazing cookery demonstration where we learnt how to make tagliatelle with the flour we collected from the mill that day and by evening we were sitting down with the rest of his family to pizza and pasta! Delicious and all organic form earth to plate. During the week we were able to pick fresh tomatoes, courgettes, salad and herbs from the garden whenever we wanted and on arrival there was a complimentary bottle of red wine and one of prosecco produced by Flaviano from his own grapes! Both delicious.
The village was only a two minute walk from the house with several cafes, couple of bakeries, very nice restaurant and a great icecream shop open until 11pm! Also two supermarkets just ten minutes walk from house. We explored nearby mountain villages by car such as San Pellegrino, Sillico, Castiglione di Garfagnana and slightly further the town of Lucca where we spent an enjoyable day. However relaxing by the pool was a real treat and we had lovely weather all week.
The house was reasonably well equipped but additional crockery and glasses in the kitchen would have been useful and although Wifi was available at the reception area we were expecting it to be available in our apartment. However, none of this detracted from our holiday and Villino is a great place to stay. We hope to return in the near future and would not hesitate in recommending it and of course our wonderful host Flaviano.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a wonderful time, and enjoyed this fantastic location and the pick your own! I will pass on to the owner re need for additional crockery and glassware. WIFI is supposed to be available everywhere on site, but i know it works best at the WIFI reception point. We will get the owner to look at amplifying the signal further. Thanks again for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review and we hope to hear from you again. Thanks. Lorraine at tuscan-retreats
