What makes this Apartment unique
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 guests. 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!

Great accommodation and great hosts.
The hosts were outstanding with the best hospitality, including a pizza evening with the family. Accommodation, gardens and pool were stunning and very clean. Welcome pack had everything we needed, and lots of extras. Would highly recommend the full day wine tour. We have no hesitation in recommending this to everyone who wants to get away from it all.
Everything ok, friendly hosts
Nice area, lots of things around to see and do
Everything we had hoped for and more!
My husband and I just returned from a 10 night stay at this beautiful home. It was everything we hoped for and more. The home itself had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay as well as a wonderful welcome basket with pasta, sauce, eggs, milk, jellies and more. The grounds were amazing! Loris has done a wonderful job and we enjoyed both the days and sunsets each night by the pool. Claudia and family were so kind and hospitable and were available to help us if needed. We were away from the crowded cities but only a short drive away through the beautiful Tuscan countryside. This sleepy little town has a small bar and grocery coop and only 10 minutes away from a larger supermarket. The people here were very friendly. If you are here on a Sunday I would suggest attending their 11am mass at the beautiful chapel on the hill. We are neither catholic or Italian speakers but it was a wonderful and memorable experience ending with a singing procession, walking on flower petals through the town. We were honored to be the first American guests to stay here and we would not hesitate to come back and stay again at this beautiful home. Our suggestion for driving in Italy is the smallest car available as the streets are very narrow.
A beautiful gem of a place to stay
Casa Foscoli in Montefoscoli is an absolute gem of a location. Just spent a couple of weeks there for our honeymoon and it was so so peaceful and relaxing, such a wrench to have to leave.
The setting is amazing with beautiful views across the Toscani hills. The photos you might have seen don't do enough justice to how well appointed the property is or to how stunning the garden is.
This has to be experienced for a quiet, tranquil and romantic getaway. The village is tiny with the most basic of amenities, but you're just ten minutes from shops and restaurants.
thank you so much for taking the time to review Casa Foscoli. We were so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your honeymoon in Montefoscoli.
We have to agree it is the perfect romantic getaway ideal for couples or even those with a little one in tow.
I guess we need to get the photographer in again to capture those wonderful views across the Tuscan hills!
We want to thank you for finding us and choosing Casa Foscoli for such a special event and we hope to welcome you back to Montefoscoli again one day in the future.
With warmest wishes from Claudia, Loris and property/booking managers Marie and Lorenzo
A truly authentic Tuscan experience!
I cannot say enough great things about my time at Casa Foscoli and my experiences with Marie, Claudia, and her family. Everything was absolutely perfect. The closest attention to the finest details has been paid and it truly shows. The house was immaculately clean, very well stocked, and so comfortable. I was greeted with a welcome basket consisting of a variety of foods like espresso, pasta, biscuits, tea, milk, eggs, prosecco, juice, etc. It was such a generous and kind touch. I am so very grateful and thankful. Use of the pool with its amazing views was the highlight of my trip. It was so warm and beautiful in the garden that I struggled with whether I wanted to stay poolside all day and soak up the sun, or make the quick drive into Pisa to do some sightseeing. Casa Foscoli is perfectly located for you to get some quiet rest and relaxation in an authentic Tuscan setting yet close enough to Pisa and other larger towns that you have plenty of opportunity to get out and about. I was so sad to have to leave. I will definitely be returning soon and I highly recommend not just this property but any of the properties listed by Authentic Tuscany. Marie, Claudia and her family are tremendous hosts. Please pass my biggest thanks on to Claudia and her son!
Thank you so much for your kind review it’s always great to hear that everything was perfect!
We are pleased that you enjoyed your basket of goodies and that you managed to soak up some sun by the pool. We understand that it must have been difficult to tear yourself away from the pool terrace, beautiful gardens and view especially on a warm sunny spring day! Thank you for recommending Casa Foscoli and mentioning that we also manage other properties in the area all of which are listed here on VRBO/HomeAway and range from cosy romantic apartments for 2 through to Tuscan villas ideal for families and friends with private pool.
We hope to welcome you back to Tuscany again soon, till then take care and warmest wishes from Marie and Lorenzo (property managers) Claudia and Loris (owners)
Wonderful hilltop location overlooking the beautiful Tuscan landscape
An amazing villa ,beautifully presented and in an excellent location for many of the Tuscan cities of the region . The purpose of our visit was to see Andrea Bocelli at Lajatico so chose Casa Foscoli for its location to there and it had a swimming pool , which we were very grateful for as temperatures reached 41'C at times ( unusual even for Italy we were told ) our hosts Claudia, Daniele and Eleonora were charming and very helpful,the villa immaculate . Although we visited Pisa , Volterra and several other locations we could not do them justice on this occasion , so plan to go back soon perhaps when it's not so hot!
Andrea Bocelli was amazing !
Thank you so much for giving Casa Foscoli a wonderful review. We are pleased to know that you had a pleasant time during your stay and enjoyed the swimming pool as well. We always take pleasure to provide all the help we could give to our guests and we’re glad to know that you appreciate it. Thank you for choosing Casa Foscoli and we are looking forward to have you as our guest again in the future!
