Holiday home vacation in Tuscany

Tuscany has been for years one of the most popular travel destinations in Italy. atraveo offers you a wide selection of more than 13,000 holiday apartments and houses where you surely be able to find something suitable for your next vacation. The offer range in the Tuscan landscape comprises of both traditional country houses and estates as well as large villas with own pool or modern apartments in the larger cities. Everywhere you will find the hilly landscapes with pines, olive trees and grape vines that shape the panorama of Tuscany. This unique landscape and special charm that radiates from its villages and friendly people is a vacation for the soul. The region in past times has proven to be an inspiration for artists, inventors and discoverers. As an example one can name the great Leonardo da Vinci who was invigorated on several occasions by the beauty of the nature here.

Typical Tuscany: Abundance of sights and day trips

Next to the picturesque landscape Tuscany impresses especially with its rich cultural and art historic heritage. There is much to see and discover – with its many famous cities leading the way: Especially Florence, the capital of Tuscany, impresses with its many important buildings such as the cathedrale, Ponte Vecchio over the river Arno, the Uffizi Gallery with the famous collection of paintings and the many Renaissance palaces of the Medici and other influential families.

Siena, Florence’s eternal “rival” offers a beautiful Gothic old city centre is not least famous for its long-standing university and Palio, the annual horse race which tajes place in the city centre. In Pisa most tourists are attracted by the Campanile, the world-famous Leaning Tower of Pisa at the Piazza del Miracoli. However the beautiful old town with its entwined alleys is also worth seeing.

The smaller cities San Gimignano, Volterra, Arezzo and Vinci are in a beautiful picturesque hilly setting. San Gimignano which is also known as “Manhattan of the Middle Ages” because of the towers that can be seen from far away have created an authentic historical cityscape which takes the visitor 500 years back in time. The insider’s tip is definitely the ice cream bar which sells the world’s best chocolate ice cream getting several awards in the process. In Vinci you can walk in the footsteps of the city’s renowned son – his first name was Leonardo. But also the less well known small towns and villages with markets and the one or other tourist attraction are worth a visit.

Agriturismo in Tuscany – Holiday home vacation in the countryside

Many of Tuscany’s traditional farms have been restored and converted into holiday accommodations. Agriturismo, which means loosely translated “holiday in the countryside” is a highlight for adults as well as for children who can play to one’s heart’s content on the wide ranging grounds of the farm. Usually these old farm and manor houses which are called rusticos are situated in idyllic landscapes such as the vineyards in Chianti or in the province Florence with great panorama views of the surrounding hills in Mugello or on the dark blue sea at the Maremma.

Holiday makers are not only offered the seclusion and open space for an individual vacation but also insights into the life of an Italian farmer. And with the ecologically produced local products from the farm shop or the weekly market in the next village one is able to prepare great traditional Italian dishes in the kitchen of the holiday home. Often these rusticos provide some extras such as a pool or an especially large terrace where one can enjoy a good glass of wine whilst watching the sun set.

Tuscany's coast: Bathing vacation at the Mediterranean

The best travel time for a holiday home vacation in Tuscany are the months of April to October as the temperatures remain constantly above 20°C and in midsummer can even average above 30 °C. A holiday house at the sea is ideal for a beach vacation. More than 1,000 of atraveo’s holiday homes are only up to one kilometre away from the beaches of Versilia, Maremma, Costa Etrusca or the Mediterranean island Elba. The water temperature during summer is on average 23°C and the shallow waters are ideal for bathing and splashing around. Alternatively one can also enjoy a bathing vacation in a holiday home in the heartland with a pool. When you relax on your floating air bed you cannot only enjoy sunshine but also take in the views of the beautiful scenery.

These are just a few of the reasons why to choose a holiday home vacation in Tuscany. Book your holiday domicile in the heart of Italy and enjoy freedom, individuality and the authentic sense of life of Tuscany.

    “The nearest large town of Barga is a small sleepy town, with a small supermarket (lunch break to 17 clock) and market day on Saturday morning. A few restaurants can be found there as well. Drive from the house to Barga 25 minutes. A really large supermarket is located in Gallicano. Highly recommend the Rifugio is above the house. Delicious home cooking by two very nice young people and prepared the best house wines far and wide ... and fill and take is possible on request.”

    “The apartment is a bit remote. Therefore, the nearest shops are within walking distance difficult to achieve. The old town of Barga which is about 2.0 km uphill from the apartment is worth seeing.”
