My wife and I spent 3 nights at Forestaria at the back end of a two week trip to Italy. Forestaria couldn't have been a better choice to wind down our trip. From Eleanora picking us up at the train station in Lucca, to the local restaurants with their amazing food, to my wife taking a cooking class with Eleanor...

We had the most relaxing and lovely stay here. Eleonora is a fantastic host. It's exactly what you want out of a Tuscan getaway. Beautiful farm on a rolling hillside. Amazing food at the nearby restaurants. Delicious breakfast with freshly laid eggs and the best crepes I've had Nights under a starry sky. Sunning on a bed out on the...

Driving up to Forestaria was magical in its self. I have never been so curious and amazed. From the welcome, to the room and the view, this place is beyond beautiful. We walked to restaurants, drove around the country side, visited a few wineries and enjoyed the sunsets. The owners are the most welcoming people and I just can't say...

My wife and I spent nearly two weeks in Italy, and Forestaria in Valgiano was our favorite place. We were picked up at the train station by our host and arrived at the farmhouse in the mid-afternoon. The home was clean, simple, and beautifully kept. We had time to explore a bit and enjoy the view of the valley. The...

I spent a week here last year and I could not fault my hosts for hospitality. They went above and beyond the call of duty. I had such a lovely meal with them, the hills spread before me and the stars above me. The hosts are truly wonderful people. It's a bus ride to Lucca and those views ... I'll...

We loved our stay at Forestaria. The owners of the property have impeccable taste and have turned this in to a wonderful little gem. The views alone are worth a million bucks, but then you add on the rustic charm, comfortable accommodations and hospitality and it all comes together as one very special place. Our only regret was that we...

Simply great! I spent some days at this wonderful place some weeks ago and I enjoyed it so much. I arrived there almost by chance and I still can't believe, such an idyllic landscape could exist. I had the chance of taking some long walks through the rolling hills which surround the Forestaria and discovering some beautiful hidden spots in...
