The Tuscan countryside is best taken in with a glass of wine and a large appetite. Grab your friends and get ready to live la dolce vita at these luxury villas in Tuscany, Italy – all bookable on Culture Trip.

World-class art in Florence, medieval charm in Siena and astounding architectural feats in Pisa are just a few of the things that draw tourists to Tuscany year-round. But there’s more to this central Italian region than the well-trodden hotspots: golden wheat fields, vineyards dotted with rustic farmhouses and orderly rows of towering cypress trees. There aren’t many hotels out in the Tuscan countryside, so gather your crew and enjoy the rural charm of a luxury villa. Remote locations will let you appreciate the rolling landscapes without the thrum of tourist crowds, and luxury touches such as outdoor pools are perfect for surviving the summer months.

Castello di Volognano

Just 10mi (16km) outside of Florence, nestled among a 494-acre (200ha) expanse of tangled vineyards and silver-hued olive groves, is a soaring hilltop castle. Dating back to the 11th century, the artfully restored property now has six sophisticated guest rooms as well as an outdoor pool, an Italian garden and an ancient cellar. Have your private chef design a custom menu celebrating local, sun-blushed ingredients, before ending the night with a glass of Chianti wine. You can either rent a single room or the entire castle for an extra-special event.

La Casa di Pino

This is the stuff of fairytales: a small, stone-built cottage dating back to the year 1200, surrounded by a thick green forest that creeps all the way up to the door. The enchanting cottage can sleep up to six people and is ideal for families or small groups of friends. In the summer months, cool off by jumping in the outdoor pool or set off on a hike and take refuge under the dense canopy of the nearby forest. The quiet luxury of this property is best paired with a hearty Italian meal, so bike to the nearest village, Catiglion Fiorentino, and stock up on Tuscan delicacies that you can then enjoy al fresco in the garden’s gazebo.

This comfortable villa sleeps up to 12 people and is known for its added, modern luxuries in an old-school setting. Make the most out of the outdoor pool and take time to relax on the shaded patio, before setting out into the small medieval town of Pietrasanta. You can spend time exploring the area’s artistic heritage – Michelangelo once visited Pietrasanta to learn about carving marble from local artisans – or bike down to the Marina di Pietrasanta and take a dip in the Tyrrhenian Sea.

There’s more to Tuscany than wine – the region is equally famous for its olive oil production. Experience this firsthand with a stay in this restored 200-year-old olive mill, on a sprawling estate. The six-bedroom villa retains many of its original features and artfully integrates them with modern touches, such as a Nespresso machine and a Smeg fridge. Laze by the pool and gaze out over enchanting olive groves and dark green cypress tree silhouettes. Or better yet, set out to learn more about the area by joining an olive oil tasting.
