Overview

Wedding Venue Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

Escape to the Tuscan countryside and revel in the views over the vineyards, rolling fields, and olive groves.  Villa Tosca sits in the heart of the lush surroundings, with matured trees and green lawns adding to the charm.

Boasting Italian beauty, this villa has a lot of its original features such as exposed stone walls, arched ceilings, terracotta floors, and vintage fireplaces. It has, however, been brought to the 21-century with all the mod cons you could want, and need. The villa was fully restored and divided into eight elegant apartments, and it’s the perfect getaway for a large group, where everyone can have their personal space but still gather together when they wish.

Each apartment is spacious and offers the idyllic place to chill after a long day exploring the Tuscan region. It’s also an ideal spot for a bit of downtime on holiday, whether enjoying the large private pool or simply relaxing and seeking respite from the heat in the air-conditioned units.

While each apartment has a unique set-up, they all have internet access, satellite television, air-conditioning, and central heating. The kitchens in all the villas are also all well-equipped, with a hob, fridge, dishwasher, coffee machine and cutlery and crockery.

The outdoor area takes full advantage of the vista over the countryside, and it's the perfect place to sit with a good book and some local delicacies. Guests can seek respite from the heat in the large private pool, which is complete with a hydromassage area. There is also an Italian bocce court for entertainment and a chance for a little competition.

This villa is located in the charming town of Lajatico, and the centre is just a short mostly flat walk from the villa. Here guests will find restaurants and a few amenities. The villa is within day-trip-distance of some gems, including Volterra (20km), San Gimignano (30km), Pisa (50km), Siena (70km), Lucca and Florence (80 km).

Villa Tosca is situated in Lajatico, a charming Tuscan town that has a pretty centre amidst rolling hills. The spot is just a short walk away, so guests can wander into town to find amenities such as a supermarket, as well as tasty authentic restaurants. The villa’s rural location means guests can explore the hillsides and mountains in various ways, whether hiking or walking, on a mountain bike, or on the back of a trusty steed.

The medieval hilltop town of Volterra is nearby (20km), where guests can roam the alleyways and revel in the history, feeling as though they’ve taken a step back in time. The historical centre offers the taste of the area with traditional products, and it’s also a great place to pick up souvenirs including alabaster hand-made objects, which Volterra is famous worldwide for.

Slightly further afield is San Gimignano (30km), another hilltop town this time renowned for its art, food, wine, and of course history. Wander inside the town’s walls and take in the skyline of medieval towers, including the stone Torre Grossa. Every Thursday the town has its weekly market, where you can pick up local treats and a few more souvenirs.

Of course, when in this area you will explore the rolling hilltops, enjoying the Tuscan countryside whether that’s vineyards or olive groves. After all, there’s nothing better than enjoying these treats when they're fresh.

Another equally as cliché, but must do thing is heading out to Pisa (50km). Ideal for a day trip, head to the Leaning Tower and take that tourist snap, before strolling down the lanes and looking for gelato.

Slightly further afield, guests can head out for a day trip to Siena (70km) and Lucca and Florence (80 km).

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Babies & Toddlers Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

When picking a destination to travel with children, Italy should be at the top of the list because there is plenty to keep all ages entertained. After all, the area is known for gelato, pizza, and pasta - what more could children want?!

Take a trip back in time to Volterra, a medieval hilltop town that has so many historical sites and monuments, such as Volterra Cathedral, Etruscan Museum ‘Mario Guarnacci’, and Palazzo dei Priori.

Another nearby hilltop town is San Gimignano, known for its history and food - perfect for kids. The Piazza della Cisterna is a great place to enjoy through the day - and an ideal spot for a gelato stop.  

Of course, no trip to the region would be complete without popping over to Pisa (50km) and getting the kids to take an inventive picture with the leaning tower.
