The landscape of Tuscany is truly beautiful; walled towns, towering Cyprus trees, rolling vineyards, and the tranquillity of a rural lifestyle, which has been preserved through the centuries.
Tuscan cities such as Florence, Siena and Pisa as well as towns such as Lucca, Cortona and Arezzo, house some of Italy's greatest artistic treasures.
The central Tuscan landscape is dotted with medieval villages and hill towns, such as Sam Gimgnano, Monte San Savino and Pienza, which nestle in glorious pastures. Northern Tuscany is often overlooked as it is more mountainous but has some wonderful hilltowns such as Barga in the Garfagnana and Bagni di Lucca, where property prices are considerably more reasonable. The Arezzo province, houses the Casentino valley, which is home to the small hill towns of Poppi and Bibbiena above vineyards and pastures and cradled by wild and forested country.
The Tuscany coast (Riviera della Versilia) is probably the largest stretch of uninterrupted golden sand in Italy. Back dropped by the Alpi Apuane and within easy reach of Lucca, Pisa and Florence, stylish resorts with pine-shaded villas and apartments, elegant boutiques and stylish bars and restaurants provide the perfect location for sun-worshippers.
As you would expect with a popular destination, properties can be expensive in areas of high demand but the homebuyer really is spoilt for choice in a region full of sun-soaked landscape and glorious, peaceful scenery. Whether it is a farmhouse in the rolling hills, a townhouse in a medieval mountain village or an apartment in a small and historical town, Tuscany is a truly wonderful choice.
