Tuscany Travel Guide

Tuscany Holiday Villas

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.

The houses have 2 separate entrances and are completely surrounded by nature and can accommodate up to 14 adults and 2 extra children in baby cots, in 6 double bedrooms . There is the small dependence farmhouse with an extra 2 bedrooms, to guarantee complete privacy if 2 couples want to be separate. Some baby cots can easily be added.

    The view from here is - "just stunning but wait until you see the pool..." ... Villa is - "simply beautiful " Two comments form guests in August 2016 Villa is for sure, a really special property for both friends and families to enjoy. Tucked away on the sleepy hillside of Castiglion Fiorentino and where guests can make this their "home from home" - The property welcomed its first guests in May 2016, - The villa is set within an olive grove where the visible ruins of an ancient defence castle of Castiglion Fiorentino can be explored and enjoyed. Adjacent to the larger villa is a (deconsecrated) church from the 12th century which has also being restored. The Villa and its annex provide three bedrooms, three bathrooms, modern kitchens, 2 sitting rooms, a vast terrace with some of the loveliest views of the valley and the town of Castiglion along with the private Infinity Edge pool - strategically situated to enjoy the fabulous views. It is about 3 km from the town, where there are many restaurants, bars and shops and, there is also small shop,bar and restaurant just across the valley if you did not want to travel into the town, Much like the other villas here, this is also a good location - an excellent base to explore Tuscany its many hill towns, festivals, wineries and countryside including easy easy day trips to Cortona, Pienza, Montepulciano, Siena etc - Florence is also easy by either car (1 hour) or by train from our local station. This is one of our first reviews from May 2016. A first review says: “The houses are surrounded by a beautiful old olive grove. There are two terraces overlooking the valley and a very nice infinity swimming pool. The view is breathtaking. I have been in this valley before but the view here beats everything. There is a small terrace in the back to catch the early morning sun. The large (Giant) terraces in the front catch the sun from 10 am to sunset. For people like me who love to read in the shade : plenty of shade available under the surrounding trees. The olive groves around the houses are actually grassy meadows, ideal for children's play. In the woods on top of the hill behind the house lie the remains of a 13 th century castle. You have to drive up a drivable access road from the valley floor to reach this house. The next and only other house is 100 m down. The road continues up the hill for another 1.6 km, winding through beautiful olive groves and forests, offering breathtaking views. Then then for easy hiking, road changes into a hiking trail that joins the hiking trail that circumvent the valley. We were the first occupants in a newly developed property. We were two couples and stayed a week in May 2016. The property consist of two houses. The smaller one , just a few meters away, has one bedroom, with a king size bed, bathroom and a living space with kitchen. Tho main house has two bedrooms, with king size bed and the other with two single beds. The main house has two bathrooms. A dining room, sitting room and separate kitchen. Hendrik, NL. Also in the area are tennis courts, horse riding and , now the new Golf Course at Cortona -
