Relax, Tuscany calls you to enjoy a holiday villa, apartment, or cottage in the area of Italy known for the courtesy of its people, the beauty of the landscape, fine cuisine, excellent wine, and olive oil. A vacation rental in Tuscany may give you the perfect combination of leisure and culture. Consider a morning trip into the great cities of art including Florence and Siena or an excursion to one of the hundreds of charming towns that command the hills of Tuscany. Then, gain balance by returning for a leisurely luncheon at your countryside vacation rental in Tuscany. Lunch near the pool, swim a few laps, some sunbathing, a snooze, and you may be ready to strike out again to shop or to join the citizens of Tuscany in the local piazza for an aperitif, dinner, and people watching during the evening stroll, la passegiatta.
You will find here your perfect holiday villa with a pool in Tuscany, or an apartment in the Florence hills converted from an ancient farming hamlet, or even a medieval convent. Castle, convent, or hamlet, you will savor views across the vineyards and olive trees of Tuscany and Chianti. Taste and compare the local wine, olive oil, vin santo, and grappa. Some of our owners produce their own, right where you are staying, and will allow you to sample their products. Should you visit in the autumn, you can observe and sometimes even participate in the grape and olive harvests.
Italian short term villa rentals are a tradition with many families and groups of friends, a chance to gather for quality relaxation, long, noisy meals al fresco, card games, conversation, and vin santo late at night. Several types of countryside vacation rentals in Tuscany support your reunion: large stand-alone villas as well as extended properties that have multiple apartments and cottages.
