Nestled in a triangle between Arezzo, Siena and Florence, this beautiful villa in the heart of the rolling Tuscan countryside, feels like its own little hamlet. Accessible via a country lane, Tenuta Valdambra has the space and views that will help you relax and create wonderful memories.

The villa, surrounded by woods, vineyards and olive groves, is decorated in a homely style, with antique brick tiles and furniture blended with more contemporary designer pieces. Its large open plan living area, with plenty of seating for all the guests, is neatly divided by an arch, giving you the sense of a cosy hideaway. And there is a floor cooling system which will help you keep at a comfortable temperature, however hot the Tuscan sun is outside.

The property comfortably accommodates up to 20 guests, with each of the nine bedrooms having its own TV and en suite shower room. To add to the fairytale-quality of the villa, some of the bedrooms even have four-poster beds.

If it’s a peaceful spot surrounded by nature you are after, this could be just what you’re looking for. Tenuta Valdambra, one of the oldest farmhouses in the Val d'ambra, is surrounded by a herb and flower garden, and a little further on, woods. You can enjoy these panoramic views from the gazebo, while you are dining on Tuscan treats, soaking in the breathtaking vistas of the valley. You could even heat up the wood-fired pizza oven for some homemade Italian fare. Jump in the private swimming pool to cool off, or hop into the heated hot tub in the annexe – whatever takes your fancy!

Feeling peckish and want to explore the local restaurants? The nearest village is less than 9km away and has some good restaurants for you to sample some local cuisine. Here you will also be able to explore the winding streets leading to the old medieval fortified town. There are also supermarkets here for you to pick up some provisions, and tennis courts if you fancy a quick game.

The beautiful cities of Florence and Siena are both within striking distance for a great day out with a bit of art and history.

Perfectly placed in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, this property benefits from the privacy of the nearby woodlands, alongside the amenities and culture of nearby towns and cities. It is within a triangle formed by Arezzo, Siena and Florence, which are all within driving distance for a good day out.

The nearest village is Ambra, which has a variety of shops, bars and restaurants plus a market on every Tuesday. In Siena you will be able to tuck into some fantastic food while admiring the gothic architecture. Then head off to some of the galleries and museums to get a dose of history and culture. Arezzo also benefits from great art and architecture, and is home to the breathtaking frescoes of Piero della Francesca, an early Renaissance Italian painter.

In Florence you will find works of art from the Renaissance, including Michelangelo’s David sculpture and many Botticelli masterpieces. If you’re feeling strong, a walk up to the cupola of Florence’s Duomo is recommended – a chance to view the city from its famous dome.

Of course, Italy is famous for its stylish fashion, so if you want to pick up some bargains, head off to the Outlet Prada in Montevarchi. For something a little different, guests at the villa can request to go truffle hunting in one of the Pieve Santo Stefano reserves. You will be picked up from the villa, then taken to look for these special treats – white and black truffles.

The villa is perfectly placed for wine tours and there are a number of vineyards in the area that offer tastings. The Il Borro estate will give you a tour of the vineyards plus tastings for you to get a real feel for the region’s wine. Visit the family’s wine and art gallery, then view the cellars full of barrels of wine.

Tuscany is a great place for a family friendly holiday, and this property is perfectly placed to take advantage of what the area has to offer.

In the city of Florence you can take a Segway tour around the winding streets before heading to the Leonardo da Vinci Museum, a great interactive experience which highlights the artist’s various engineering projects. Of course, a trip to an ice cream parlour would top off the day!

Cortona is home to Fortezza del Girifalco, an ancient hilltop fortress overlooking the city. What an adventure the children will have, exploring the guardhouse, keep and four corner bastions of this impressive building.

An hour’s drive away, you will find a park that is home to over 400 animals, highlighting the amazing biodiversity on the planet. From giraffes, elephants and lions, to crocodiles, pythons and ostriches, Pistoia Zoo is a fun day out for the family.
