Description

Romantic hilltop retreat – Authentic Tuscany with private pool and garden

Casa Foscoli is the perfect romantic retreat for those looking to ‘get away from it all’. Situated in the centre of the Medieval village of Montefoscoli perched high on a hill is an ancient monastery dating back to the 16th century and it is here where you will find a beautifully restored apartment idea for a couple or young family.

Montefoscoli is situated on the Strada del vino – The wine route of the Pisan hills and is close to many vineyards and wineries in addition to being close to Pisa, Lucca, Florence and San Gimignano.

The ground floor apartment at Casa Foscoli retains character features such as a chestnut beamed ceilings and original archways which link the romantic bedroom to the charming sitting room and kitchen.

For those who love to dine al fresco Casa Foscoli has a private dining terrace with a large table and chairs which leads from the kitchen. Outside guests have the sole use of a small mature garden with a lawn.

The romantic pool with Italian sculptures and fountains is situated on the lawned terrace in front of the main part of the monastery and offers incredible views over the Pisan valley and hills. On a clear day you can see the ‘Leaning Tower of Pisa and in the evening you can watch the sun set into the Mediterranean Sea.

The property owners Claudia and family live in the main part of the monastery and are available should you need them. However, they will also respect your privacy when it comes to using the pool and lawned terrace both of which are for the sole use of their guest.

For those of you who like the idea of an authentic Tuscan evening with a real Italian family Claudia can offer you a Pizza night on the terrace with home cooked pizza from the purpose built pizza oven in the garden!
