Make a holiday villa in Florence Area your home away from home

Florence is the pride of Italy’s Tuscany region and entices tourists with its treasure trove of cultural attractions and culinary delights. This city is undoubtedly one of the most significant on the Italian art scene, being the place where Michelangelo weaved his magic and where he was laid to rest. Stunning landmarks pop out from behind every corner, inviting tourists to dream of another time, while seasoned tenors and sopranos fill opera halls with enchanting melodies. Florence Area villas put such wonders within holidaymakers’ reach. Most people on touring this part of Italy will stay in a terraced apartment in the centre of the city, giving them a unique vantage point from which to savour Florence’s attractions. Visitors can also choose to spend their nights in Tuscan villas constructed in traditional fashion or in medieval castles with amazing views. A number of these Florence Area holiday rentals come with private pools among other features.

Things to do

-Museums: The Statue of David, one of artist extraordinaire Michelangelo’s most audacious pieces, stands in the Accademia Gallery. A massive marble impression of the biblical David, it's a piece everyone with any respect for art will give an arm and a leg to see. Luckily, visitors don’t have to go to such lengths to see this historic sculpture; but they do need to book their visit well in advance so as not to be crowded out. Also in this gallery are other interesting pieces such as the Rape of the Sabines and Slaves. Florence is also home to one of the world’s most renowned fine art galleries, the Galleria degli Uffizi. It will overwhelm visitors with its impressive collection of Renaissance artworks. Visitors are again advised to buy tickets well in advance as queues are usually very long.

-Historic architecture: As they perambulate the city’s streets, residents of Florence Area holiday rentals will come across the famous Giotto Tower in all its multiple-windowed glory. To get to the top of this structure, tourists will have to climb more than 400 steps; it may not be the ideal activity for a summer afternoon! But for those who do scale the steps, unbelievable panoramas of Florence and the hills beyond await. Next to the tower is a beautiful cathedral, Duomo di Firenze, one of the city’s most prominent landmarks. The 11th-century Basilica di San Miniato al Monte, however, is reputed to have an even more dazzling interior than the duomo.

-Activities: Other than sampling Tuscan specialities, holidaymakers can learn how to do it the way the Italians do by undertaking cooking classes. They can come away from Florence with age-old cooking secrets that will spice up their self-catering holiday rentals, as well as their kitchens at home. Those looking to catch the artist bug can do so with the help of classes in this romantic city, starting with photography training to help them capture Florence’s bountiful sites.

-Shopping: Being in the home of art, there are several places holidaymakers can find artistic souvenirs to carry back home. At Le Pietre Nell’Arte, visitors will be able to buy stone masterpieces and even watch as the artists patiently craft them. Of course, visitors can buy items of apparel and accessories by Gucci and other popular Italian brands here, too, as well as discover lesser-known brands if they so wish.

Weather in Florence Area

With a melange of Mediterranean and humid subtropical weather patterns, Florence tends to experience extreme heat in summer while winters can see temperatures drop slightly below freezing. During the typical summer months Florence is hot and clammy, so those booking Florence Area holiday homes may want to do so a bit earlier. Visiting between April and May is not a bad idea as temperatures will be in the twenties but won’t be uncomfortably hot.

Travel to Florence Area

Visitors travelling from London, Brussels, Munich and other major European towns can take a direct flight to Amerigo Vespucci International Airport, one of Tuscany’s two main international gateways. The other is Galileo Galilei International Airport in Pisa. Most low-cost airlines have flights only to the latter airport thus visitors may want to opt to enter through there. The Pisa airport also has good bus and train links to the city.

Best villa ever

5 of 5
This proved to be the best villa we have stayed in as a family group. House is very well presented and equipped, with very generous welcome pack of basic provisions, enormous fruit bowl and the olive oil was even from the villa's estate. The pool is really large and positioned with a fantastic panoramic view. Long enough to do lengths. The walk up to Montaione is steep but short, and better to walk downwards on the way home!. Great selection of local restaurants and bars which are all really reasonable. Monique and her family were very welcoming and lovely. Overall a brilliant villa in a great location - would recommend highly.

A beautiful rustic villa, quiet and peaceful countryside surrounds you. Heaven in Tuscany.

5 of 5
A well appointed and well maintained Villa in beautiful countryside. The hosts are incredibly attentive. Caterina will always respond to your questions or help with arranging or giving you ideas for places to eat, visit etc. Her mother Angela, is fantastic....have a wonderful Tuscan meal cooked for you one night.....you won’t regret it! Incredible. We are a family of 9 (6 adults and 3 children) and the space worked perfectly. Great eating space from outside the kitchen in the mornings to sundowners in the day room near the pool in the evening!! Air conditioning throughout, nice hideaway spaces if you need to relax away from the kids with a good book (not often)! The property is well looked after, Valerio the gardener will be around most mornings to clean the good sized pool, the villa is also really well located. For those feeling energetic it’s a 2km run or bike ride to the local deli and other shops in the square. For Tennis fans a nice small club, lessons with Matteo were brilliant. It’s also so easy to get from the town of Impruneta to lovely restaurants or visiting local sites. Florence is 20 mins away, Sienna and San Gimignano not more than 50mins. We also saw Pisa and Lucca about an hour but all easy to get to. You’ll want for nothing at this Villa, not even ice.....the ice machine was a godsend on barmy hot evenings! Again I must stress how excellent the hosts were throughout our stay, it’s all the extra touches that make a holiday and the owners really understand this......I am sure we will return very soon!!
