Villa Tolomei is an elegant, softly mustard-toned Tuscan villa, set within its own ample and luscious grounds framed with swaying poplar trees, set in the nook of gently, sloping grounds.

This prestigious home is finished with impeccable taste and style: it offers generous proportions, beautiful original stone, exposed timber beams, finished with muted pastel tones, soft fawns and pale pistachios creating an ambience of understated luxe. Villa Tolomei is abundant with character - far from being yet another uninspiring holiday home - this is a charismatic “home from home,” full of local flavour and style, well-chosen artwork, soft furnishings and elegant lighting.

Guests will immediately feel the tempo drop as they enter this home that has both such a calm aura and epitomises such classic style. The stunning exterior is softened by terracotta tiled, sloping veranda roof and abundant green, creeping foliage; the trellis covered outdoor dining space offering dappled light.

Interiors are far from following the post modernist trends and gimmicks of design magazines; on the contrary, this home offers a timelessness, one of pared-down opulence - there is a lightness of touch and a classical tone with the original architectural features speaking for themselves.

There is a main reception room, as well as a separate television lounge; both with wonderfully high ceilings - beautiful rugs, wallpaper and the subtle palette create such a tranquil aura in this stylish home.

The bedrooms are serene and immaculately chic: again with classic style and a soft palette of power blues, french greys, soft pinks and low, ambient lighting, they set the scene for a restorative stay. From chandeliers, to walk in steam room shower, to antique solid wood furnishings, there is no compromise on quality. Nine bedrooms can accommodate up to eighteen guests, meaning this home is ideal for a couple of families, or for holidaying in a group, or with extended family.

The outdoor spaces are sublime, looking over the wonderful rolling countryside. Set over a series of buildings, including the distinctive “watchtower” building - a Rapunzel-like tower finished with the same elegant charm as the rest of this home.

Villa Tolomei combines the best of a private and secluded villa, along with five-star hotel grade services including babysitting, private chef, access to a health spa and grocery provision: virtually any request can be bet to make guests stay at Villa Tolomei as seamless as possible.

Dining al fresco is a naturally elegant affair: the dappled foliage creates a shady al fresco dining spot on the veranda overlooking expansive grounds. The pool is set within supreme privacy, providing a wonderful setting for a refreshing morning swim, followed by fresh coffee and pastries, or simply a relaxing poolside with a good book and a cool beer.

The access to services is unparalleled at Villa Tolomei: from massages to laundry service, to well equipped gym, to partaking in cookery classes or physiotherapy, whilst the sheer natural and understated beauty of the surroundings and home itself provide a genuine Tuscan idyll, placed to enjoy the best of nature, within the most sophisticated yet cosy ambience.

Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill’otel

Yey! Wait… what is that?
It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

Gavoranno is a mountainside commune in the Province of Grosseto, in the western Italian region of Italy. Set within the Upper Maremma, in Grosseto, Gavorrano is a medieval centre next to Monte Calvo. Gavoranno was a significant mining town, with remounts of the industry visible today. Some of the old mines have been converted into large museum complexes.

Rich in history, the land and castle of Gavorrano were run by the noble Pannochieschi family in the thirteenth century. The town of Gavoranno, steeped in medieval legends and tales, maintains the architectural structure that was typical in the Middle Ages: the castle, arches, gates, walls and large palaces with towers will offer a plethora of discovery for history buffs.

Amongst top attractions is the Parc Nazionale Delle Colline Metallifere: a mining park where guests can go down into the mine and take a train or walk back - offering a fascinating journey into the region’s history. The impressive Teatro Delle Rocce acts as an open theatre set by the mining site, as well as a picturesque walk and tranquil little church along the way.

The Castello di Scarlino is well worth a visit: offering wonderful views, Elba island and Follonica are visible, and there’s a fantastic ice cream hut at the top. Both Florence and Pisa are a very achievable day trip.

The Tuscan landscape is considered among the best that Italy has to offer, with its splendid hills, elegant architecture, olive trees and vineyards the views at every turn are enchanting and awash with seasonally changing colours.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Safe and enclosed, the estate has ample space for children to roam and play. The pool will provide hours of splashy fun, and the sheer novelty of al fresco meals will have children delighted. The gardens and grounds alone, local walks and outdoor spaces will provide huge appeal for children. Teens will be impressed by some of the additional features, such as a separate television room, and fully equipped gym.

For day trips, among the highlights for children in Tuscany, Pinocchio Park Collodi is a great day out - Collodi is home to a theme park dedicated to Pinocchio and his adventures, with activities like literary itineraries, buildings and sculptures set amidst the greenery, art exhibitions and illustrations, puppet making workshops and more. Rather than being a Disney style park, it is more a cultural and natural environment, very Italian in style.

Pistoia zoo is located in the hills near Pistoia and is one of the most popular zoos in Italy; covering a space of seven hectares and an array of species for a fun and educational day out.

The water park, Aqua Village is located in Follonica, near Grosetto, and offers a range of slides and rides from gentle toddler splash pools to more thrill-seeker level for older children.

From hiking, to horse riding, to waterspouts, to cultural heritage, children of all ages will learn so much from a visit to Tuscany: what could be more enchanting than a day of dolphin watching in the reserve known as Pelagos Sanctuary in Viareggio, followed by a meal in a local hilltop restaurant - offering sublime, flavoursome local specialities followed by wonderful gelato and cream filled pastry treats that the region is known for.
