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.

South Florence  -  [ Matches:  132 Villas and Houses For Rent]

South of Florence lies the Chianti, Italy's definitive wine-growing region. This area boasts hills covered in vineyards, winding roads (favored by sporty drivers and daredevil cyclists), and breathtaking vistas. Following the old Chiantigiana road you see the heart of this region, including the northerly reaches of San Casciano and its environs and the Chianti Classico. What to do while in the Chianti? Eat, drink, and be merry. Towns like Panzano, Greve-in-Chianti, and Radda-in-Chianti---and all the wineries in between---are filled with gastronomic delights and a dizzying selection of wine shops. A wonderful place to bring your family or friends for an unforgettable Tuscan experience.

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.

Outskirts of Florence  -  [ Matches:  9 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Want to remove yourself a little from the hustle and bustle of Florence city life? If a more rural setting with easy access to the city (when you want it) is your desire, the outskirts of Florence are a tranquil and scenic place to rent a villa or apartment. Fiesole, with its Etruscan remains scattered over the hillsides overlooking the Florentine basin, is a wonderful place to immerse yourself in ancient history—you can investigate the archeological sites yourself, including the city wall and theatre (still in periodic use today), or pay a visit to the local museum. Other great sights in this area are the Cathedral of Fiesole, the Convent of San Francesco, and the Church of San Domenico. Settignano is a charming village northeast of Florence, just east of Fiesole. There are many historic villas in this area, as well as wonderful views of the valley below. South of Florence in Galluzzo, you can enjoy the unique delight of being guided through the Certosa del Galluzzo monestary by genuine Cistercian monks. Bagno a Ripoli, rising in the southeast of Florence between the Arno and Ema rivers, is notable for its lovely agricultural landscapes and numerous villas and gardens. Other areas in this section include vacation rentals located just on the outskirts of Florence, yet quickly accessible from the city.

Situated north of Florence, the mountainous Mugello is crowned by the forested Appenines. As hot, noisy, and crowded as Florence is in high season, the Mugello is as cool, quiet, and uncrowded. Long a haven for Florentine aristocracy, there are beautiful Medici villas and winding roads that lead to the mountains. Lest you think that all Chianti wines are grown in Chianti proper, the Mugello claims the much-lauded Chianti Rufina wine zone.
