Tuscany villas

Mark and David's verdict:

There's a reason why Tuscany is a perennial favourite with visitors to Italy. Actually, there are dozens of reasons. Eye-wateringly beautiful countryside, hilltop villages, art treasures, fine wine and good food all feature highly. The best way to do it? Rent a villa with private pool.

CV Villas says

Lucca, Chianti, Pisa, Florence … these iconic Italian destinations can all be found in the ever-popular region of Tuscany.

  • Great locations
  • Luxury villas & farmhouses
  • Private pools

Tuscany is perhaps the only place in the world where you can explore Renaissance cities, relax on sandy beaches, wander around medieval hilltop villages, discover world class vineyards and witness spectacular festivals – all in one holiday.

We have hand-picked a selection of luxury cottages, villas, farmhouses and grand houses in prime locations throughout the region, sleeping from 2 up to 22. Each has a private pool.

Family groups will love Il Pozzo. This grand villa not only has a large heated pool, it also has its own five-a-side football pitch and a private chef included in the price. Formerly a farmhouse, it sleeps up to 18 and is located close to Cortona.

Pisa, Lucca and Florence are all within striking distance of the gorgeous Casa Gelsomino, a short walk from the local village pizzeria, restaurant and shops. An artfully-converted olive and grape press, it sleeps up to nine. The countryside views are stunning.

La Casetta delle Statue is a short drive from Siena. A beautiful cottage, it’s especially recommended for two couples travelling together.

The countryside setting of  Casa Dei Vini is blissful. With the pretty hillside town of Cetona just 2.5km away – easily walkable via a woodland path – this characterful family house oozes old world charm and sleeps up to six.

La Casa della Chiesa is ideally located for the beaches of Viareggio. It’s a classic Tuscan villa with five bedrooms and beautiful gardens – there’s even a croquet lawn.

Escape to the Tuscan hills with a holiday at La Sassicaia, a glorious villa with vaulted ceilings and, outside, a tennis court, large pool, terraces and beautiful gardens. The beach at Cecina is just 15km away. It sleeps up to 12 adults and three children.

We can arrange private chefs, concierge services, hire car, flights or just the villa rental – the choice is yours.
