We recently stayed as 3 couples at Villa Fosca and were not disappointed. The large Villa, the (gated) property, and the surrounding area are all outstanding. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen, bathrooms and living areas were all very clean and well equipped - everything we needed for a week's holiday including a washing machine and drying rack. The beautiful and well maintained pool and lounge chairs were an added bonus after a day of exploring!
The owners also live on the property, but this does not at all diminish the privacy of the Villa, as the dwellings are well separated. While they only speak Italian, the owners are very pleasant folk and given the amenities of the Villa there was little need for questions anyway. Alice, the property manager was extremely helpful responding to questions prior to our visit and was available throughout our stay should we have needed to contact her.
Villa Fosca is a little bit off the beaten path, but that is a good thing while on holiday. Your GPS will get you there! There is a good sized Co-op store about 15 minutes away in Monte San Savino, which has everything in the way of food and drink and accessories that you may require during your stay. Make sure that you leave yourself some time to visit the nearby village of Lucignano. It has a rich history and is a wonderful little town to explore. The crowds are sparse, the restaurants plentiful and the people friendly! The railway station at Arezzo is only about 30 minutes away, and is a great hub for getting around to other areas such as Florence (Firenze) or Rome. We also booked a Chef through the property managers (EuroCasa) to come to the Villa for a cooking lesson and an evening meal. It was an absolutely outstanding evening and we would recommend that you add that to your holiday stay to experience Italian cooking (and humour) at its finest. We also booked a combined wine tour, wine tasting and lunch through EuroCasa, and it proved to be an extremely pleasant day out in the vineyards as well.
In summary, we are all seasoned travellers and were all immensely pleased with Villa Fosca and the assistance from EuroCasa. We would love the opportunity to return some day. Definitely top ratings for this one!!!
