Tuscany Vacation Rentals You Must See
Imagine staying right in the heart of Italy's most exotic and exciting tourist attractions. Or perhaps your ideal Tuscany vacation includes the seclusion of a distant farm or village. Renting the right accommodations in Italy is easy. There is so much variety and choice. From villa to farmhouse, where you stay can be as much an adventure as what you see.

A Tuscany Villa

The typical villa in Tuscany, whether located at the beach or in the country will consist of the same charming features. These quaint homes away from home all have a rich history as castles or estates for the nobility of days gone by. Beautifully furnished, you will find all the comforts of home. The sleeping quarters and living quarters are separate as in a traditional home, so long stays are comfortable. The space even allows for easy entertaining of the new friends you will make during your visit. The size and layout of a villa make it a good choice for family gatherings. Extended families will have both the closeness and privacy needed for a successful reunion.

Luxury villas are not uncommon in Tuscany since so much of the area was home to the rich and elite of Europe. These types of luxury accommodations were once palaces. They were carefully situated for the most breathtaking views of the cities or seas that surround them. The hilly landscape of the area makes it so most villas have at least one spectacular observation area from within. Property owners will show pictures of both the exterior and interior along with the views so you can make an informed decision about what type of villa is right for you.

A Farm Holiday in Tuscany

To an American tourist the idea of vacationing on a farm may not be all that appealing. That is only because their image of a farm is nothing like what they would experience on a farm holiday in Tuscany. To the Italians, the farm experience does not mean milking cows or waking to a pre-dawn rooster's crow. In Italy the farms are almost resort like in their setting and amenities. For tourists, the farms of Tuscany are quiet retreats set apart for the hustle and bustle of the city. Yet they are an easy drive into the heart of the regions night life and shopping.

For extended stays in Tuscany a farm house can provide a home base to the region. It is an affordable way to prepare your own meals, shopping in the villages for the essentials, and relaxing like no other vacation can provide. All of the linens, utensils and tools needed to say for weeks or months at a time make it as comfortable as home.

In selecting a Tuscany vacation rental, property owners will designate the number of people the villa or farmhouse can accommodate. There are farm area apartments specifically for two or houses that will be occupied only by your group and can sleep up to 16 or 20 guests in several bedrooms. Such a large palace turned villa is perfect for uniting family and friends from several continents for the vacation of a lifetime.
