Under the Tuscan Sun

If you're looking for the charm and romance of Tuscany, you'll find it in one of four fantastic villas. Immerse yourself in the enviable Tuscan lifestyle of dining al fresco on the patio, enjoying views of rolling hills, sipping aperitifs or espressos at sidewalk bistros, and shopping trips to the open-air markets for fresh produce - you may never want to leave! Add the perfect personal touch to your pampering vacation with a cooking class and dinner at your villa, as well as a wine tour - buon appetito!

After a day of exploring the hilly towns of Tuscany, all you'll want to do is unwind in your own spacious villa. Stay in Piccola Bramasole, which takes its name from the original Villa Bramasole from the novel and movie 'Under the Tuscan Sun.' Set just a few hundred meters away from the Villa, the owners of this rustic stone-covered little house have maintained many of its authentic original features without compromising modern comfort, allowing you an incredible Tuscan escape. The old country house known as Villa Le Corchie dates back to the 15th century, and boasts panoramic views of the hills surrounding Cortona. Relax and recharge in elegance at Villa Orlandicchio, where you can soak in the pool while admiring the breathtaking views of the valley. These villas are the ideal private getaway, immersing you in nature, yet still keeping you within a short distance of the vivacious Tuscan town life and medieval town walls of Cortona, and the beauties of ancient Etruscan History.

Swirl, sniff and sip the wines of Tuscany on a wine tour through the countryside of Montepulciano, including a visit and tastings in two exclusive wineries and free time to explore the medieval town. You can also look forward to a cooking class and dinner in your villa, the perfect opportunity to relish the passion and art behind Italian cuisine.

Cortona, with its medieval walls still intact, sits in a strategic position overlooking the valley that leads south into Umbria and towards Rome. Spend some time exploring the landmarks of this historic city, such as the Piazza della Republica, the 13th century town hall and clock tower that is now one of Cortona's main plazas, or the Duomo, the Renaissance cathedral featuring an 11th century facade and gorgeous 16th and 17th century paintings inside. Fra' Angelico lived and worked in Cortona during the late 14th century, and artists Luca Signorelli and Pietro da Cortona were both born within the city's walls. You can now find all three artists' works in the Museo Diocesano.

  • 8 days/7 nights accommodations at Either Piccola Bramasole, Villa Le Corchie, or Villa Orlandicchio
