Imagine a villa in Tuscany: the verdant rolling hills, olive groves and grapevines. You’re dining alfresco in a loggia perched above it all, with age old wisteria framing the view. It sounds like a fantasy, but at Villa Dania it’s real. This 5 bedroom 19th century home has been lovingly restored by the owners, adding modern amenities while preserving the villa’s fine historic details.

This family villa invites connection and conversation; sit with friends by the pool, under the arbor, or inside under a fresco (yes, really). All that’s missing is a glass of good Tuscan wine. Thankfully that can be found in Fabbrica, a small town with groceries, cafes, restaurants, and a pharmacy within easy walking distance.

Tuscany’s most important cultural centers are nearby. A trip to Volterra (25 km) is a must for any history buff. This Bronze Age settlement was one of the "twelve cities" of the Etruscan League - and remains a living museum of history, art, and architecture. You might fly into the nearest airport in Pisa, only 45 km away. Or if you're taking the train instead, you'll catch it in Pontedera (25 km), a city known for wine and chocolate production.
