Experience the real Tuscany.

Updated: Jun 15, 2022


Explore this beautiful region traversing the winding roads, stopping by the wonderful small villages steeped in history along the way or experience the real Tuscany by staying in a village.


Enjoy the tranquility of village life, take local excursions, learn about the area and use as a base to explore towns and cities, staying away from the hustle and bustle but enjoying the sights & sounds by day.



There are some enchanting small medieval villages and towns dotted throughout Tuscany. Some of our favourites -


Small towns include - Massa Marittima, San Gimignano, Volterra, Colle val d'elsa, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montacino... Larger cities / towns Siena, Florence and Arezzo.


Small villages Monteriggioni, Montemassi, Montieri, Chuisdino, Bolgheri, a drive through Chianti is wonderful - Radda, Greve, Gaiole, Volpaia, Castelnuovo Berardenga, Panzano.


The abbey of San Galgano is well worth a visit.


The etruscan coast is splendid, the beaches of Baratti and Torre Mozza are lovely, however very busy in August. There are wonderful hot springs at Saturnia.


Places to eat

Montieri - Bacanale is a great pizzeria very thin crusts with delightful toppings (pizza in Italy is traditionally served only in the evenings) lunch is pasta, meats etc.

Ciciano - Bistro Galli serves local dishes with specials each day.

Siena Taverna San Giuseppe is nice and very reasonable for a Michelin star restaurant (works out to be approx €60 per person including wine).

Lovely restaurant with terrace overlooking the valley Osteria Il Campanellino - Barberino Val D'elsa.


Wine tasting I would recommend Montepulciano, Montalcino (both nice towns), Morellino di Scansano, Bolgheri and Chianti. My favourites are Nobile di Montepulciano and Bolgheri.
