Great place but some disappointing services
The villa is located in a wonderfull landscape and offers a great big pool. We didn't meet Vitorrio, but his mother, who is very kind. We had quite a good time but our overall feeling is that the rental doesn’t meet the usual international standards for that level of price.
The kitchen is very small and doesn’t allow to cook as there is no kitchen counter and no hot water.
The infinity pool is so noisy that it is not possible to enjoy the silence of the country (the waterfall, which was made on the side of the house, is very noisy and almost never stops night and day). As it echos in the bedroom, we had to buy earplugs to sleep at night. Unfortunately, we had bad nights also because of the old bedsprings and mastress, making double beds like trampolins. The bed base of the single beds are wood boards. My husband is back home with lumbago.
We would have appreciated to have the house cleaned up as we’ve stayed 2 weeks. We found clean towels and linens left at the door for us to change.
At last, we would have appreciated to be informed in advanced that we would have to share the property with two men staying in the big house behind the villa and in the little guest house. They were discreet but we didn’t feel as isolated as we had expected.
Thank you for writing Villa Fosciana a review. We are pleased that you enjoyed the house overall, including the nice hospitality of the owner. The kitchen in relation to the large house is small but there is counter space to prepare meals on, there’s also a fridge freezer, a sink, an oven with hob and all the other things you may require in a kitchen. I am confused that you say there is no hot water. The kitchen hot water system is linked with the main boiler system so there always should be hot water. One of the positives of this house is that Vittorio is always on hand to fix any issues that may occur so a simple message to him may have solved the hot water issue. The beds in the villa are of the traditional Italian style which often have springs rather than slats. As with all of the furnishings, they are of a high standard so comfort should not have been an issue. The mattress’ are new and also have mattress toppers.
We can provide a mid-week clean if requested by our guests and again a simple message would have allowed us to do so. Clean towels and linen are provided to the guests mid stay free of charge, as it is a self-catering villa most of our guests change linen (if required) by themselves.
The owner has informed me that the two men were carrying out essential maintenances on part of the extensive land that the villa sits on. Therefore, they stayed in the house for a couple of days behind (but not directly in sight of) Villa Fosciana. Normally that house is empty. One of the main bonus’ of Villa Fosciana is it’s extensive grounds which allow guests enjoy the get away from it all feel.
Thank you again for leaving us a review. We will use your feedback constructively.
Unplug, relax and enjoy the beauty of Italy
Fantastic home, views and pool. This is an ideal place to stay if you are looking to sit back, relax and recharge your batteries. Restaurants, shops and day trips are right at hand. Friendly and helpful property managers will assist with any questions or problems. We had small issues with both the pool and TV during our stay and they were taken care of quickly, efficiently and with a smile. Internet service can be a little slow so if you need high-speed access you may be disappointed. However, if you're looking to kick-back and relax in an ideal setting this might be just the place for you!
Stunning views and amazing size pool!
Very lovely villa with great space for our family-beautiful views all around.
Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed the views, the villa and the pool. Sounds like your family enjoyed your holiday here.
Wunderschönes Haus mit großem Pool für sechs Personen. Großartige Aussicht, Ruhe und nette Städtchen in der Umgebung. Sehr freundliche und kompetente Ansprechpartner vor Ort; sehr gute Informationen im Vorfeld. Wäre traumhaft, wenn der Privsatweg besser in Schuss wäre. Aber in jedem Fall: Eine Empfehlung.
Thank you so much for your 5 star review and kind words abut the the advance information, local welcome and appreciation of the spectacular views.
Peaceful, stunning views, beautifully maintained.
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.
Thank you so much for your 5 star review and kind comments about the booking process through Friends of Tuscany. We appreciate feedback and are delighted that you enjoyed the villa, pool and surrounding area. It sounds like you had a great time on your trips and walks. This villa is perfectly placed for both city trips and more rural pursuits and you certainly seemed to make the most of it. I will pass your comments on to the owners, who take pride in making sure all is ship shape for their guests. Thanks again for your detailed comments as it really helps future guests get a feel for the place.
