Projects for Summer holidays are in the making... Renting a villa with group of buddies in Tuscany: this is the coolest to fully enjoy the region without having to dig into your trust fund. We have found for you the ideal spot to reserve a pretty house with a pool.
No need to carry on about the local charms: grandiose landscapes, pastel colors, lush valleys that hide treasure troves of palaces and villas. And that does not include the bellissima Sienna as well as Piazza della Cisterna in San Geminiano to come sip a “spritz”. In this part of Tuscany everything is a master-piece. Starting with the food and wines !
To appreciate this art of living, just take your time and chose the spot of your dreams but better start working on the reservation now. They have a wide array that meets all different kinds of tastes and budgets.
-From the two-room flat (working kitchen and bathroom) in a pretty house, Casa Gilda in Cortona in the province of Arezzo ( 860 € per week from 14 June to 20 September) to the deluxe Di Montesoli villa in Castelnuovo Tancredi, in the splendid Crete region near Sienna.
-A former hunting lodge with added extension. There you spend a different kind of holiday: in the vein of a family house for a group of buddies or recomposed family. Period furniture, ultra modern bathrooms, (plus a Spa with jacuzzi, sauna and pool room) for 12 to 18 persons. A large equipped outdoor pool + BBQ and wood oven (from 7500 to 11000€ per week, depending on the number of people, from 28 June to 30 August).
-Another example, the lovely villa Il Lonchio, in San Donato, Collina, 15 minutes from Florence by car. Perfect for 6 persons, with 3 rooms, 3 bathrooms, a nice pool and a lovely garden (6315 € per week from 14 June to 4 October).
