Holidays abroad are now back on the agenda and what better place is there to while away a few weeks than Tuscany.

With travel restrictions lifting across the globe, To Tuscany is delighted to see so many guests wishing to travel again this year. The region of Tuscany is not only physically at the ‘heart of Italy’ but encompasses the very best that visitors have come to expect from the wonderful country. From its culture and traditions to its food and landscapes, Tuscany truly is the ‘heart of Italy’.

It is no wonder then that so many are ready to visit Tuscany, whether it's their first, second, or even twentieth time. This does mean that To Tuscany has found that some of their villas already have limited availability remaining, especially for the summer months. Do not be dismayed though! There are still amazing villas available for stays between June and August.

Here are some of the top picks still available for this season.

Podere Campi

One of the most unique villas on offer, Podere Campi comprises a chapel, garden suite and hilltop watchtower. The villa offers amazing views of Tuscany's vineyards, olive trees and valleys, and is aptly located for trips to Siena, San Gimignano and Florence. The exteriors have maintained their traditional charm whilst inside you can see the influences of the fashionable architect owners. There is a lovely children's bedroom, complete with toys and a bed reached by a wooden ladder.

From £7,963 per week for up to 10 guests.

Il Belvedere di Gino

There is more to this villa than just the incredible view but it will take you a few moments to notice. Il Belvedere di Gino's mountainside location not only means you will enjoy mesmerising views but your own perfect microclimate. Step into the pink house to discover a traditional property that has been sensitively restored with a blend of high-quality materials, fittings and furnishings. You can even be taken in by the views from inside the villa. When you want to explore further, you will feel spoiled for choice - from the medieval hamlet of Buggiano to the chic streets of Montecatini Terme.

From £4,165 per week for up to 8 guests.
