Culture and romance near Tuscan holiday lettings

Tuscany is the stuff of postcards. Rolling hills, where spear-like cypress trees shade the vineyards, converge to meet verdant plains pockmarked with rustic farms and villages. There's hardly a town in sight that isn't worthy of a gasp, whether because of Cortona's hilltop towers or Lucca's medieval walls or San Gimignano's honey-hued houses, cascading like a waterfall from the central piazzas. Life is slow and easy in these reaches. Great wines flow and rustic food is on the menu. Sunday markets and morning walks through Florentine cathedrals give way to lazy afternoons by the poolside in Tuscany holiday rentals. Convinced?

Things to do

Places to go near holiday lettings in Tuscany

Tuscany's not just uber-relaxing. It's uber-rich in history, culture and heritage, too. Take to the city streets of Florence and you'll find yourself navigating cobbled lanes where masterpieces by Michelangelo and Caravaggio beckon in the museums – the Uffizi Gallery is a must. Hit Pisa and you can see the famous Leaning Tower – selfie taking not compulsory. Head to Lucca for preserved medieval walls or delve into the stone-clad lanes of Cortona for a glimpse of Etruscan relics in the nearby archaeological digs. There's loads to do here.

Activities

Things to do near Tuscan holiday homes

Tuscany takes slow living seriously. Or, at least, it would if it wasn't too busy relaxing to take anything seriously. Don't worry if you simply want to kick-back and soak up the Italian sun in a private villa. There's no one here to judge. Don't be ashamed if you swap the cathedrals and churches for cafe culture in Florence's backstreets. Don't worry if you trade sightseeing for wine tasting in the Chianti hills or cooking lessons with local mamas. It's what the region's best at.

Weather

Climate during your stay in Tuscan holiday homes

There's a reason why so many Tuscany holiday rentals come with pools and al fresco eating terraces. This region of central Italy is primed for outdoor living. It's all about smorgasbords of buffalo mozzarella cheese and air-dried hams under the Tuscan sun, or reading sessions on deckchairs with views over the Apennines. It should hardly come as a surprise, then, that summer is the top time to come. Months like June, July and August mean regular temperatures in the 30s and hardly any rain to boot.

Natural features

Tuscany – a land divided

Tuscany is split between the rising Apennine Mountains of central Italy and the coast of the Tyrrhenian sea. That means it's got all sorts of natural wonders up its sleeve, ranging from the peaks where Cortona perches to the rolling Grossetto Plain to the beaches around Porto Ecole. The region even spills down into the Med with the Tuscan Archipelago National Park. Its 7 islands are an oasis of empty pebble coves, glistening azure water and rare marine life – even whales. Back inland and you can see vineyards and cypress trees stretching out for miles.

Good for couples

Couple's retreat in Tuscan holiday homes

The tranquil scenery and romantic locations of Tuscany make it ideal for a couple’s escape. Holiday homes can be found near places like the Galleria dell’Accademia, an art museum with Michelangelo’s masterpieces and renaissance paintings, and Ponte Vecchio, a medieval stone bridge with Roman origins and an abundance of jewellery and souvenir shops. You’ll also like the Uffizi Gallery, a 16th-century building with a vast collection of primitive and renaissance paintings and artwork.
