About Tuscany

Filters: 386 Villas Match Your Filters

A hilly region rich in agriculture, Tuscany was the home of the Etruscan civilization, and later the birthplace of the Renaissance. It's known for charming, historic towns like Siena, Arezzo, Cortona, Lucca, San Gimignano, and Volterra. A destination for gourmands, the wine of Tuscany's Chianti region is famous around the globe. Extra virgin Tuscan olive oil, a staple in regional cuisine, is also highly prized. Tuscany's capital, Florence is a great art center whose centro storico remains closely linked to its medieval past, in spite of tourist crowds. The region's Tyrrhenian coast is famous for its white sand beaches and pine forests. Come August, Florentines depart en masse for spots such as Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi, and the island of Elba. A Tuscany villa rental is the ideal way to experience the region as it provides a comfortable base from which to explore while also providing the perfect place to rejoice and share after a day of adventures.

Florence Villas  -  [ Matches:  170 Villas and Houses For Rent]

The province of Florence is located in the northern reaches of the Tuscany region of Italy. Famous for its breathtaking views, sublime wines, delicious food, and culture-rich past, the area exudes the characteristic charm of Tuscany. In the center of the province is the famed city of Florence - the capital of the province. We offer Florence apartment rentals from which you can enjoy the many museums and restaurants just outside your door. If you plan to explore more of the countryside, or perhaps you would simply like to retreat to your own corner of paradise after a long day in the city, a stay in a villa in the outskirts of Florence provides the best of both worlds. You'll find it easy to take public transportation into the city, at the same time you'll have more room for parking your rental car used for exploring your surroundings. If you'd like to be in the heart of the famed wine growing region of Chianti, where you can travel easily throughout Tuscany including the towns of Siena, Monteriggioni, and San Gimignano, renting a villa South of Florence is a terrific way to be centrally located.

Siena Villas  -  [ Matches:  83 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Nestled amidst the hills and valleys of the Sienese Chianti-a territory dominated by medieval hill towns---Siena offers a wonderfully preserved example of the Tuscan Middle Ages. The city is home to many Gothic palaces, churches, and museums filled with Gothic art. Dating back to 1310, the Palio delle Contrade is an annual bareback horse race in which 10 of the city's 17 contrade (neighborhoods) compete. The culminating event of Italy's most spectacular festival, the biggest race is held on August 16; a smaller race is held on July 2nd. In the environs of Radda in Chianti, wine estates such as Castello di Volpaia and Badia a Coltibuono are satisfying side trips for wine and olive oil lovers. Heading northwest of Siena towards San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, one of Italy's most perfectly preserved fortified villages, dominates the vista.

Arezzo Villas  -  [ Matches:  47 Villas and Houses For Rent]

One of the most prosperous cities in both Tuscany and the whole of Italy, Arezzo is distinguished not only by its beauty, but by its outstanding collection of important Renaissance art and architecture. Piero della Francesca's frescoes in the church of San Francesco are virtually without rival. If jewelry happens to be on your shopping list, then you've come to the right place: Arezzo has long been known for its jewelry industry. Whether you're staying to the north or the south of Arezzo, day trips abound. Easy day trips include Cortona, Montepulciano, Siena, and the heart of Chianti Classico. If you're craving the coast, Maremma and the Argentario Coast are also within striking distance.

Lucca Villas  -  [ Matches:  45 Villas and Houses For Rent]

A city of bicyclists, Tuscany's Lucca is refined and elegant. Its tree-shaded battlements are actually some of the most formidable---and best-preserved---bastions in all of Italy. Birthplace and stomping grounds of Giacomo Puccini, Lucca boasts a small museum in the composer's birthplace. The city also hosts one of Europe's most important antique markets on the third Sunday of every month. Other must-see sights include the Catedrale di San Martino (Lucca's Duomo), San Michele in Foro (a lovely Romanesque church), and Piazza Anfiteatro, the remains of a Roman amphitheater. Hikers and nature lovers should head due north to the Garfagnana, a wooded area that is home to the eastern slopes of the Apuan Alps.

Florence City Villas  -  [ Matches:  27 Villas and Houses For Rent]

A city of many layers, Florence is at once an over-run tourist magnet and a living, breathing medieval city that is home to proud Florentines. Stomping ground of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Dante, and Machiavelli, its cultural importance can't be overstated. It is home to three of the world's most renowned museums: the Uffizi, L'Accademia, and the Bargello, and boasts an incredible number of important churches, which house equally important master works. Sights such as the Ponte Vecchio, the Boboli Gardens, the Pitti Palace, and Giotto's duomo are but a few of the city's many offerings. A walker's city, the center of Florence is a compact labyrinth of alleys and piazze. Comfortable shoes are a must! Rent your own Florence apartment in the historic center to explore the myriad shops, museums and charming restaurants. You will return from your busy day to the quiet and calm of your own apartment where a refreshing glass of wine will help you relive the adventures of your day.

Pisa Villas  -  [ Matches:  17 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Birthplace of Galileo Galilei, Pisa is best known for its Campo dei Miracoli, location of the renowned leaning tower and a collection of elegant buildings. Livorno, on the other hand, is a hopping port down distinguished primarily by its Venetian-style canals and knockout seafood; it's also Tuscany's second largest city. Neither city warrants much more than a day trip and the beaches south of Livorno---like Castiglioncello, Vada, and Marina di Cecina---aren't particularly beautiful and draw massive crowds in high season. So why stay in the environs of Pisa or Livorno? Accessibility! Florence, Lucca, the beaches of the Maremma, and the Ligurian coast are all within easy reach.

Pistoia  -  [ Matches:  10 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Offering convenient access to both Lucca, to the west, and Florence, to the east, the area around Pistoia is ideal for exploring the natural wonders of the Garfagnana (a valley north of Lucca) and enjoying many of the area's volcanic hot springs. While Pistoia itself offers some interesting historic buildings, the real jewels of this area are Montecatini Terme and neighboring Monsummano Terme. Both are famous for their sulfurous underground hot springs where devotees have taken the water for centuries. There are a number of different spas and hotels where guests can do everything from sip the waters (a cure for the liver) to steep in a mineral mud bath. If spa hopping is not on your agenda, nearby Pescia and Collodi are interesting stops.

Grosseto  -  [ Matches:  6 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Tuscany villa rentals in the province of Grosseto provide excellent access to the entire Tuscan coastal region. The Maremma stretches from Cecina to Monte Argentario and includes the vast inland flatlands. It's a truly ancient province that was once the center of the Etruscan civilization; many Etruscan tombs and carved subterranean roads remain intact. As much an agricultural region as destination for sun lovers, the Maremma is famous for its cowboys who herd the region's long-horned white cattle. Tuscany's southern tip, the peninsula of Monte Argentario offers both rugged, uninhabited inland areas and charming, low-key resorts. Port'Ercole, a fishing village of Etruscan origins, and Porto Santo Stefano, the northwest coast's largest resort, are popular destinations for Italians and Europeans alike to rent tuscany villas. Neither village exudes the uptight, elitist atmosphere that is often pervasive in many of Tuscany's exclusive seaside spots. Monte Argentario is also distinguished by two protected nature reserves: Laguna di Ortobello, an oasis that surrounds the city of Ortobello, and Lago di Burano, a significant bird refuge.

Livorno  -  [ Matches:  6 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Livorno is a hopping port town distinguished primarily by its Venetian-style canals and knockout seafood; it's also Tuscany's second largest city. The beaches south of Livorno---like Castiglioncello, Vada, and Marina di Cecina---aren't particularly beautiful and draw massive crowds in high season. So why stay in the environs? Accessibility! Florence, Lucca, the beaches of the Maremma, and the Ligurian coast are all within easy reach.

Massa  -  [ Matches:  2 Villas and Houses For Rent]

While in Massa, your focus should be on the beautiful resorts of the Tyrrhenian coast (Forte dei Marmi, Camaiore), the mountains of the Alpi Apuane, and picturesque towns such as Carrara, which is known for its white marble. This area also puts you within easy reach of inland hills towns like Volterra and San Gimignano. As long as you're careful to avoid ultra-popular beach resorts like Marina di Massa in August, this province does offer the best of both worlds in the warm months: easy access to the water as well as to key Tuscan destinations.
