HOW TO FIND THE PERFECT TUSCAN VILLA

 

TUS

So you have decided where you want to go on holiday. Now what?

If you type “Villa in Tuscany” into a search engine and you will get about a quarter of a million results. It’s hard to know where to start.

We would suggest that before you start looking, you should ask yourself the most important question:

What do you want from your holiday?

Tuscany really does have something for everyone. If you enjoy sightseeing two weeks wouldn’t be enough to see all the area has to offer; from The Leaning Tower of Pisa to lovely, laid back Lucca there really is no shortage of amazing architecture.

Perhaps you want to see some of the stunning countryside and villages, our particular favourite is the area around San Gimignano – it really is like stepping back in time.

Is wine is your thing? You might like to book a wine tasting day – there are plenty to choose from and planning in advance means you will not waste a moment when you arrive.

If you enjoy dining out you will want to make sure the villa you choose isn’t too far from good restaurants. Many of the properties in Tuscany are in very rural locations making it more difficult to dine out.

For groups which include children you will want to know the villa is suitable. We believe no property with a pool can be considered entirely child friendly but there are some which are eminently more so than others.

We suggest booking through a reputable tour operator rather than direct with the owner (we would say that wouldn’t we). It does make sense though. By booking with a licenced operator or by paying with your credit card you have financial protection in a way that simply can’t happen if you book direct.

Don’t be afraid to ask! Here at The Villa Agency we try to give as much information as we possibly can but there might be something specific to you and your family and friends. For example, perhaps you have an allergy to feathers so want to know what the pillows are filled with. You might only like to drink filter coffee so need to know there is a coffee making machine in the property. It is so much nicer to find everything out in advance so that there are no nasty surprises waiting for you.

We love it when people telephone us, so much more personal than only corresponding by email but we are happy to do that too.
