8 Incredible Tuscan Villas You Can Rent In Italy

Centuries ago, the Tuscan countryside was dotted with agricultural estates and fortifications. The same is true today thanks to Italy’s remarkable efforts to preserve its history. The structures remain but their purposes have changed (although many villas here still have olive trees and other sources of agricultural wealth).

Many agree that Italy is the best country in the world to spend your holidays. All of its provinces are wonderful, but Tuscany has won plenty of accolades over the years as the country’s most attractive region. This is thanks to its beautiful landscapes, sustainable cuisine and many charming towns and villages.

Florence, its largest city, was the center of the Renaissance, a legacy that lives on through the city’s architecture and museums. Siena is also a beautiful medieval town with many fine restaurants offering truffles. Although most famous for its faulty tower, Pisa has many sites to visit. But beyond those, there are dozens of lesser-known towns filled with excellent examples of Italian architecture and slices of history and culture (the culinary-type slices are especially delicious).

Relatively small, all of Tuscany is accessible by car from any corner of the region, so a villa in Pisa doesn’t preclude a day in the mountains. Tuscany is worth visiting any time of the year, but don’t expect hot Tuscan sunshine if you come in winter. Spring and the beginning of autumn are the most pleasant seasons and therefore the busiest.

To prepare for the trip of a lifetime, here is a list of eight Tuscan villas you can rent on Vrbo. Covering a geographic and stylistic range, there is something for everyone on this list, as of course there is in Tuscany itself.
