TUSCANY LUXURY LODGES

A Sun-Soaked Retreat

If this refurbished villa/farmhouse looks familiar, that’s because it served as the life-changing home of Diane Lane in the 2003 blockbuster Under the Tuscan Sun… and undoubtedly, it will change your life, too. Play out your own scene from a movie with a stay in this airy hillside Cortona estate that’s flooded in natural light and decorated in a creamy palette of whites, blues and greys. Accents of the original structure come through in the form of brick archways and the original 17thC fresco ceiling in the Limonaia (lemonary).

Plunge into the private pool or lounge on a hammock propped between fruit trees as you soak up the sights of scents of the villa’s fragrant gardens and looming peaks in the distance. For added fun, there are pool and ping pong tables, a bocce court and an outdoor hot tub. You can comfortably accommodate up to 20 people in this 10-bedroom/ensuite bathroom property.

Favourite Feature The villa has an amazing organic vegetable garden. The kitchen is stocked with sauces, preserves, and oils all handmade from the produce!

This was the best holiday we have ever experienced. Our guides were outstanding in their care, humor, communication, and attention to details.

How to Get There

Your trip will likely begin in Florence. Most transatlantic flights to Italy fly into either Milan or Rome, and Florence is readily accessible from either city.

By Plane

There are daily flights from Rome or Milan to Florence’s Peretola Airport. Peretola is about 20 minutes from the centre of town (and the train station) by taxi.

By Train

You may also fly into Pisa and take a train to Florence, which takes about an hour. You would get from the Pisa airport to the train station using the high-speed PisaMover. Then, board the train to Florence (combined tickets for both the PisaMover and train to Florence are available at the airport Arrivals hall).

Activities & Amenities

In addition to the villa’s lovely grounds, it also boasts a wine cellar stocked with many of the local varietals. The outdoor ping pong table and bocce court make it a hit with the rest of the family, too!
