"Rome and New York were impressive, but they knew they were... There was a raw, feral beauty about [the Tuscan] landscape... this was innocent, natural beauty, the best kind, like a woman first thing in the morning, lit up by the sun streaming through a window, who doesn't quite believe it when you tell her how beautiful she is."
– Leonardo Donofrio, Old Country

Villa Cipresso in Chianti, Tuscany
Why Choose to Rent Tuscany Villas?
Life in Tuscany is relaxed and unhurried making it uniquely suited for villa life. Enjoy a morning cappuccino and biscotti al fresco on a sundeck with panoramic views. Walk to the Pontile di Forte del Marmi for a morning stroll along the water. Or take a refreshing dip in your private pool before exploring the historical towns and indulging in the region's famous wines.
Renting a villa in Tuscany not only means you get a comfortable and scenic home to yourselves, it also means you're taking in the Tuscan sites more authentically. While Tuscany is home to some of the most extravagant designers, including Guccio Gucci and Salvatore Ferragamo, Tuscany is not about lavish extravagance. It's about understated, natural beauty.
In addition, renting a Tuscany villa can be cost-efficient—and more fun than staying in a hotel—when you're traveling with a group. A private villa rental means you don't have to book multiple hotel rooms. It also often means private patios, sundecks, swimming pools, kitchens, dining areas, and more. If your group would like additional services to make your stay more comfortable, such as grocery delivery, car service, private chefs, or other needs, The concierge team at WIMCO Villas is happy to arrange it all at no extra cost

The Most Popular Vacation Villas in Tuscany, Italy
Below you'll find some of our most popular vacation villas in Tuscany, including highly sought after agriturismos (or stone farmhouses), picturesque apartments in the heart of the city, and large, luxurious estates.
Villa Mara in Florence, Tuscany
"Surprisingly small as it is, Florence looms large on the world's 'must-sees' list—and not just for its unmatched treasure chest of art. Rich in culture, backdropped by history and anchored by family, faith and food, the Florentine lifestyle is enviably sweet." – LonelyPlanet.com
Picturesque and rich with culture, Florence is one of the top choices for travelers seeking to visit Tuscany. The birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence is draped in art, history, and architecture. In addition to its appreciation of heritage, Florence is also ripe with modern luxuries including high-end designer shops (with brands like Prada, Gucci, and Salvatore Ferragamo), authentic Tuscan cuisine, and—of course—an abundance of local wine.
Although Florence is a city, it feels slower and calmer than its famous tourist counterparts. While streets may be filled with pedestrians, visitors stroll with an unhurried gait—often enjoying a gelato while they window shop. Take time to marvel at the architecture and take in the local art. You may also enjoy exploring landmarks such as the Santa Maria del Flore cathedral and the famous Uffizi art gallery which houses masterpieces from historical artists including Michelangelo and Botticelli.

Villa Alfieri in Siena
Siena is a small and romantic medieval city sitting atop 3 rolling hills in the center of Tuscany. At the heart of Siena is the Piazza Del Campo which hosts the world famous Palio, a festival hallmarked by its horse race that overtakes the square twice a year and draws spectators from around the globe. Outside of Palio time, the square is perfect for a leisurely stroll or to indulge in the simple yet flavorful Tuscan cuisine.
Siena is a chef's dream, with the largest market in Tuscany held every Wednesday at La Lizza from 8:30 to 1:30. Visit early to handpick some of the finest local meats, cheeses, oils, and wines in the region to try your own cucina povera cooking in your villa's gorgeous kitchen. Did we mention cooking classes and demonstrations—or a private chef, if you prefer—are available for guests?
While in Siena, explore the Public Palace with its spectacular Torre del Mangia. If you brave the 400-step climb to the top, you'll be rewarded with a glorious panoramic view of the town and surrounding countryside. The Duomo di Siena is an Italian Gothic masterpiece, and one of the most beautiful churches of Italy. If you seek a retreat from the city, you can find an easy and airy escape to the countryside for rows of vineyards, cypress trees, olive groves, ancient hamlets, or natural hot springs and spas.
