Tuscany is an incredible land with beautiful landscapes, where striking historical villas dominate the vineyards, olive groves and sunflowers fields. An integral part of the Tuscan story is the Medici family, who have left behind an immense patrimony of elegant summer villas, hunting lodges and country estates, many of which have been restored for guided tours, concerts and events. Impressive, though not as large, are the prestigious homes that many noble families have passed down through generations, carefully renovated to become exclusive vacation accommodations. A select number of the larger villas have been restored into elegant bed and breakfasts, charming apartments, deluxe hotels or luxury resorts that offer the perfect setting for an incredible vacation in Tuscany. Whereas, several of the smaller villas have been transformed into weekly holiday rentals, intended to accommodate a family reunion, a destination wedding, or a special Tuscan vacation.
