Tasty Tuscany

Where Food, Art and Good Company meet in the heart of Tuscany

On a hilltop flanked by Tuscan cypresses is an Italian farm with a farmhouse, now a Tuscany villa for rent – a great Tuscany holiday destination. This Tuscany holiday destination is where the silence speaks to one’s very soul and the sweet scent of Tuscan rosemary & oregano lifts the spirit. The scent is present in the morning Tuscan air and the dry breeze of every evening. The sweet smell permeates the Tuscan kitchen used for cookery classes, giving the authentic Italian family food a wonderful Tuscan flavor to make for a memorable holiday in Italy.

This beautifully restored farmhouse provides Tuscany bed breakfast accommodations and an Italian cooking school. The Tuscany holiday villa for rent has five bedrooms, each with their own character and furnished with antique pieces handed down throughout Italian generations, are perfect for Italy holiday slumbers. Everything combines to create perfect atmosphere for your holiday. Whether just passing through or planning to stay, all are welcome at our cooking school, bed and breakfast, and rental villa.

We look forward to welcoming you and making your holiday a most memorable one!

For some the stay is a short holiday and the farmhouse bed and breakfast provides a brief respite between local art cities. There’s always time to have a chat, to try our traditional Tuscan organic food, drink a glass of good Italian Chianti. All of these can be done under the branches of the Italian wisteria on the grounds of the Tuscany holiday villa rental, near the welcoming Tuscany villa rental fireplace in the living room, or upon wakening in the morning to the smell of coffee and freshly baked bread.

For others, a visit here becomes an Italian holiday voyage of discovery, an opportunity to learn about the true flavors of Tuscany, to taste Italian olive oil made from the fruit of our Tuscany villa rental ancient olive trees, or authentic Italian wine made by dear friends from San Gimignano. During your Italy vacation, maybe we’ll visit in on a nearby shepherd to try some pecorino cheese that is still made the old way, and you’ll learn to cook some traditional and typical Italian dishes. And we always remember to share everything with good humor and a ready Italian smile.
