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.

    “We visited Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra. Finally we came to the conclusion that we are the more distant two cities that have more tourism, could have saved - but we love more the contemplative! Especially nice is Volterra to the early morning to have breakfast in one of the many cafes before too much is going on. An exploration of the entire old town is worth, there are many beautiful corners.”

    “The heart of Tuscany - all sights and tourist attractions are within a one to one and a half hour drive.
    The village itself pleasant to stroll around, of course, one is just in the evening when things on the famous sunset not alone in the old town road. A little Roman and Etruscan history, a visit to Teatro and Etruscan rock fortress including Roman cistern can be done quickly in one afternoon.
    A visit to the Palazzo Vit worthwhile and provides an interesting insight into an adventurer living in the 19th century.
    Shops are two supermarkets and a number of small shops, bakeries etc. even a fishmonger.”

    “Volterra is a mountain ... fifteen minutes drive up from the property. Easy to reach.

    Beautiful village, lots of commotion, shops, restaurants.

    Supermarket is just Volterra, choice of 2 ... both fine!

    Fine base for other places in Tuscany: San Gimignano is highly recommended, as Sienna (we were there during the Palio). Great!”
