A romantic hilltop hideaway with private pool
Montefoscoli village centre
Perched high on a hill with hypnotic views towards the Mediterranean Sea sits a beautiful and lovingly restored villa Casa Foscoli
Documents suggest that the property dates to the sixteenth Century and was once the home of an order of nuns. Lovingly restored by its current owners the former convent has now been converted into an authentic Tuscan home complete with a romantic guest annex full of character and charm.
The ground floor apartment preserves original features such as beamed ceilings and characteristic stone archways with a private terrace for dining al fresco and a garden for sole use of our guests.
The villa has a beautifully maintained garden and pool terrace with dreamy views toward the Pisan plains and sea and it is said that on a clear day you can see Pisa’s famous leaning tower.
The gardens and pool terrace run in front of the family villa but during you stay your privacy will be respected and you will have sole use of the pool, terrace and sunbeds. The family do live on site so therefore are available should you need them.
Claudia and her family are happy to organize an impromptu Pizza night where they will prepare a Pizza dinner in the wood burning oven situated in the beautiful gardens and terrace. These evenings are purely on request please ask Claudia for details and prices on arrival.
