“Light and beauty enveloped her. She had fallen on to a little open terrace, which was covered with violets from end to end…”
E.M. Forster, “A room with a view”
No destination can equal the Tuscan countryside for a memorable holiday. Whichever the area, the luxuriant countryside offers breathtaking views, a rich cultural heritage, a unique atmosphere, and heavenly holiday homes, from villas to farmhouses, providing each visitor with a one-of-a-kind lifestyle experience.
Villas in the Tuscan countryside wherever they rise, are exquisite, rising surrounded by the fields’ endlessly varying hues or atop soft hills crowned by graceful cypresses, and ensure unforgettable vacations in all seasons.
In summertime, the verdant valleys turn to gold, vineyards become laden with sweet grapes, and, meantime, your children splash and laugh in the refreshing swimming pool of your very own villa, or reach for juicy fruit off the property’s bountiful trees! Summer in Tuscany is a palette of sun-kissed days, filled with picnics in the shady woods, excursions to Casentino’s fascinating ancient abbeys and… dipping your feet into the pristine waters of secret hillside rivers!
Fall brings crisp breezes, clear skies and the sweet-scented grape harvest (followed by hearty harvest-celebration dinners!). It also lights up the stone walls of rustic, ivy-covered farmhouses and villas as the leaves turn a blazing red-orange, and the cool afternoons become perfect for savoring sublime Chianti wine and tantalizing panini stuffed with prosciutto!
Winter caresses Tuscany gently, bearing the spicy taste of newly-pressed olive oil, snug evenings in cozy living rooms and roasting delectable chestnuts in your villa’s own crackling fireplace! Wintertime is perfect for savoring Tuscany’s genuine soul, experiencing the relaxed pace of quaint enchanted towns and indulging in mouth-watering delicacies, and new wine, in charming family-run trattorias.
Springtime in the Tuscan countryside is… an explosion! Days become longer and warmer, multi-colored flowers and balmy aromatic herbs bloom, chicks and baby rabbits fill the garden of Tuscany’s charming farmhouses. Spring is the season for exploring tiny Medieval villages, savoring tart baccelli and newly made pecorino cheese , and for magical weddings in Tuscany !
