Janet called us here at the office last week inquiring about Italian villas in Tuscany that would make the perfect holiday venue for three retired ladies that love to cook, drink wine and indulge in all things Italian. She admitted she had her heart set on Tuscany and that the romantic idea of this region had really captivated her.
Of course, of all our Italian villas, the perfect one for Janet and her friends has to be the comfortable Italian style Cottage Pineta, complete with its brand new kitchen. Set in the grounds of a stunning shaded garden with a furnished terrace perfect for al fresco dining, the cottage also boasts a small swimming pool and plenty of grassy areas for sunbathing or enjoying a Prosecco under the Tuscan sunset. This villa is a haven of tranquillity surrounded by picture postcard Italian scenery and a landscape dotted with olive groves and vineyards.
Tuscany and food and wine go hand in hand and this is one of our Italian villas ideally located close to many of Tuscany’s wonderful cities and towns. Only 3-4kms away is the charming medieval town of Panzano in Chianti, well know for its fabulous food and wine. We suggest eating at Cantinetta Sassolini for a real taste of local Tuscan fare.
Further afield are the delightful cities of Siena and Florence and for any gastronomy lover, we would certainly recommend a trip to the Florence’s Central Market where you can feast your eyes on the wonderful ingredients that Tuscany has to offer. From the pecorino cheese to the salami and from the mustards to the balsamic vinegars, the ladies will find all they need here for creating the fabulous Italian dishes they have dreamed of.
If this sounds like the kind of villa holiday that would suit you too, get in touch with us at Cottages to Castles and let us help you realise your Italian dream.
