Tuscany – Italy's worst kept secret!

Italy has always been a popular destination for UK holidaymakers in search of relaxation, exploration and sunshine surrounded by stunning countryside; Tuscany provides the perfect balance between country and city living. Why not join the happy travellers who have already experienced the beautiful scenery, with its clusters of cypress trees and ribbons of plane trees, vineyards dotted over the sloping hillsides and solitary farms perched on limestone ridges.

The scenery changes as you head towards the Emilian border with its deep green forests and, towards Umbria, with its hazy green hills.  Tuscany also has its share of beautiful, wide sandy beaches and not forgetting a wealth of historical and cultural cities, just waiting to be explored and made into holiday memories.  Visit Tuscany’s sparkling city jewels of Florence, Siena, Lucca and Pisa and gaze at the spectacular architecture, the historic artwork of Michelangelo and wander through the cobbled Piazza streets.

With this perfect balance between country and city life, you can enjoy the pampering of olive oil treatments and the natural hot springs and then sip a glass of ice cool Prosecco on the balcony whilst breathing in the stunning Tuscan countryside and it’s history.  Maybe a stay at one of Tuscany’s Agriturismo renovated farms is what you are looking for? Especially good for those guests looking for a relaxing stay in wonderful, peaceful surroundings and the perfect opportunity to sample local produce – delicious wine, olive oil, salami, bread, cheese, pasta or jam.  Simply ideal for those foodies amongst us! We have hundreds of enchanting places to stay in Tuscany, offering the best possible base to start your Tuscan love-affair.
