Tuscany is vast: nine thousand square miles in western Italy on the Tyrrhenian Sea, and a favoured destination for luxury villa holidays. Crossed by sharp mountains, rich with fortified cities, coastal enclaves with long empty beaches, and an embarrassment of medieval treasures, Tuscany is a place everyone longs to visit; having a villa here is the idyll. Our luxury villas in Tuscany have private pools, exquisite views, and are well tended by professional villa staff.
To the north, near the glorious walled city of Lucca with its cobbled lanes, Romanesque churches and ancient bell towers, we have luxury Tuscan villas created from grand palazzi that once were the country retreats of the wealthy traders of the Arno. In the untamed rolling hills and vineyards of Chianti, populated with wild boar and porcupine, there are ancient stone farmhouses that have been magnificently restored as luxury villa rentals.
Further south-east in the Val d'Orcia, the province of wide-open vistas and cypress trees, choose from a selection of honey-hued converted farmhouses or a contemporary villa rental. From here, discover the famous hill towns of Pienza, rebuilt as an "ideal town" by Pope Pius II in the 15th century, and Montalcino renowned for its prestigious Brunello de Montalcino wine.
