“A slice of Tuscan life!”
Reviewed 19 January 2016 for a stay in July 2015

We have stayed at Villa Rouse many times over the years, as a group of friends and as a family and had so many fantastic times. I am going to attempt to cram some of it into my review and hope to do it justice!

In our most recent trip we spent most of our time enjoying the pool, venturing out either to admire the views, test out my basic/poor Italian at the local bread shop or walk down the hill for a pre dinner gin and tonic in the bar (the walk back up is a little more energetic!). We spent many evenings bbq'ing on the terrace (the butchers in fivizzano is definitely worth a visit) watching the sun go down over the mountains, whilst making the most of the Italian prosecco! We were lucky enough to go during the week the fireflys were out and spent most evenings enjoying watching them light up the garden. There is no light pollution out there so for anyone who is into stargazing it is perfect.

The pizzeria in fivizzano is definitely worth a visit, we went twice last year and I needed an ice cream detox (from the cafe in the square) on my return. The house is beautifully decorated and every year we go back there seems to be something new to enjoy. Although this is a quiet location we are never bored!

In previous years we have used Po as our base for seeing things such as the leaning tower, the ponte vecchio in Florence and Sienna but my most memorable trip by far was seeing the annual festival at the cinque terra, where in the evening everything is lit by hundreds upon hundreds of candles. It is truly stunning!!

The beach is about 40 minutes drive away and you do need to hire a car in order to explore some of the local area and make the most of the restaurants. In our opinion this place is a real find and if you are prepared to pack your phrase book you can embrace the authentic Tuscan lifestyle!

“Relaxing Villa in secluded village near Fivizzano, Tuscany”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in August 2015

My wife & I have stayed at this villa several times over the last 10 years, on our own and with friends & family. The villa is located in Po, a small, quiet village a few miles from Fivizzano, just over an hours drive from Pisa airport. The villa can accommodate up to 9 people in comfort and is an ideal location for getting away from the hustle & bustle. When the weather is hot, the pool is a great way to cool down. The local bakery (Forno) is just a few minutes walk down the hill in Cerri and the owner, Anna, bakes the best Tuscan bread and focaccia in the area. There are several good restaurants within less than 30 minutes drive and plenty of interesting places to visit within an hour or so. If you want to go further afield, the villa is handy location for visiting Florence, Lucca, Sienna, Modena, Viareggio, Portovenere and the Cinque Terre. The nearest large town is Aulla, which has many restaurants, shops and a lively weekly market.
