Tuscany

Tuscany villas, apartments & hotel holidays

For some, Tuscany is the true heart of Italy – where unique Renaissance cities such as Florence and Siena meet the classic Italian landscapes of rolling hills studded with picturesque cypresses. Its abiding charm means quality holiday accommodation in Tuscany is always in demand. Only Essential Italy can offer you a greater selection of luxurious villas in Tuscany, along with comfortable hotels and charming apartments than you’ll find anywhere else.

Towns and Cities of Tuscany

As the cradle of the Renaissance, Tuscany is home to some of the world’s finest classical towns and cities. Wherever you base yourself in the province, you’ll want to spend at least a day exploring Florence, with its stunning duomo and baptistry – and Michelangelo’s famous statue of David. Renaissance art is well represented in Florence’s three major galleries – the Uffizi, the Accademia and the Bargello. And you’ve still time to discover the city’s medieval piazzas, and bargain for curios on the Ponte Vecchio – Florence’s historic bridge over the River Arno.

But Florence is by no means the only Renaissance treasure in Tuscany. Unspoilt Lucca delights visitors – you can still stroll right the way around its medieval walls, while Siena – where the cobbled piazza still hosts the annual palio, or horse race, which is another must-not-miss destination.

Tuscany Countryside

The Chianti region produces some of the best wines in the world. The rolling hills are covered in vineyards and every few miles you will come across another pretty village with traditional restaurants and trattorias. Many local vineyards offer tastings or tours, where you can try out the fine wines of Tuscany. Chianti comes in several grades – be sure to sample the reserva as well as the classico.

The Val d’Orcia is one particularly enchanting valley that’s worth a visit if you are staying in one of our villas nearby. It brings to life that picture postcard image of Tuscany, with its sloping hills, cypress trees and sylvan vistas. The main villages to visit here are Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano and San Quirico. But the good thing about any holiday in Tuscany is that, wherever you stay, great scenery is guaranteed.

Food and Wine of Tuscany

The local food and wine is another key factor that sees many discerning travellers choose holidays in Tuscany. Much of the countryside is covered in vineyards and the reds produced are among the best in the world. Brunello, Chianti, Bolgheri and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano are just some of the top names to look out for.

The food is largely based around fresh vegetables and excellent meat - Chianina steaks are exceptional. With a wide variety of pasta dishes and meats, ranging from beef to wild boar, you are sure to enjoy many delicious meals on any holiday in Tuscany.

Tuscany Secrets – off the beaten track

Around every corner, there is another Tuscan treasure waiting to be discovered. Small villages such as Lucignano, Civitella-in-Valdichiana and Bagno Vignoni are just a few of the little gems you might come across.

Tuscany is full of markets and festas (local fetes) too – almost every village stages one at some point during the summer. Markets are great for everything from fresh produce and delicious local olive oil, to antiques and artisan curios. If you’ve rented a villa with a pool you’ll want to spend some time relaxing around it – every day will remind you why holidays in Tuscany can be so special.
