Tuscany Holiday Villas

Tuscany Travel Guide
Tuscany, in the north-western part of Italy, is known for its sunflowers, the countryside laced with winding roads lined with Cypress trees, medieval towns rich in history, the rolling hills, and the mountains. Choose from privately-owned vacation rentals for your Italian holiday home. For your vacation rental, stay in a villa rental lovingly restored to reflect the beauty of by-gone days in keeping with your Renaissance inspired vacation. Pisa will charm you. Its medieval heart beats within this Renaissance town showcasing its magnificent five-naved cathedral, leaning tower, and Baptistery of St. John at the Piazza de Miracoli . After a tour, rest outside awhile at the foot of the La Fontana dei putti before you head to a café or restaurant. On June 16th of every year, it is a picture painted with candle light during the Luminara of San Ranieri, casting a warm glow upon the buildings. Create your own story within restored Italian villa rentals or apartment condo rental accommodation, whether it is intimate accommodations suitable for two, or a large villa rental with its history expressed in its grandeur.

Luxuriate in the thermal baths and spas at Terme San Filippo. Another day, enjoy being under the Tuscan sun at the beautiful beach of Viareggio on the Mediterranean coast. Combine an Italian language course with your sightseeing . Instituto Linguistico Mediterraneo offers cooking, art appreciation, wine tasting, or painting classes. Book a privately-owned apartment or villa rental. Browse the accommodations; see the pictures and read the description of your accommodation for your holiday in Tuscany - a much better option to staying in a hotel. Take in the sights of Florence; admire the rooms within the Palazzo Vecchio and see a copy of Michelangelo’s David found in the Loggia della Signoria. Shop at brand-name boutiques and craft markets in Florence, and in Siena.

The beautiful sunflower fields of Tuscany will bring a smile to your face. Stay in a countryside agriturismo. Explore the underground caverns of Antro del Corchi and head to the mountainous village of Levigliani in the Upper Versilia. Visit the medieval village of San Gimignano. Walk, or ride a bike, on top of the four-kilometre long wall surrounding the historic town centre of Lucca. Enjoy a bottle of wine produced from local vineyards and serve a glass with your meal which you prepared in the kitchen of your vacation rental.

Tuscany is a region of events. Dating back 300 years in Florence, the coppio del Carro is an explosion of fireworks coming from a two-to-three-story cart. Twice each summer, the bare-back Pailo horse race is run around the dirt-packed central piazza Il Campo in Siena. Take in the classical music concerts, opera and ballet, during the month of May in Florence. Or listen to the rhythm of the Pistoia Blues Festival in July. There are unique competitions: the cross-bow contest in May - with the men dressed in medieval costume - of Gubbio and Sansepolcro, the 80-kilo barrel race in Montepuliciano in August, and the medieval jousting re-enacted on a Sunday in September in Arezzo.

For your holiday home lodging, Owner Direct Vacation Rentals will give you all the conveniences of home in ideally-suited vacation rentals for your perfect holiday home: Italian villa rentals, centrally-located apartment condo rentals, restored villas, country side cottages, a chalet rental overlooking the valley, or apartments by the sea.
