According to some weather channels, March this year was the coldest it has been for the last 50 years. After enduring such low temperatures, icy roads and snowy commutes to work, we are sure you must really be looking forward to your next holiday – hopefully somewhere warm and sunny!
Holidays in Tuscanycan not only offer you sun and warmth, but a pause on your everyday life. Tourists who visit Tuscany for the first time never fail to return, captivated by the relaxed way of life, the timeless habits and customs, the feeling of escaping all the troubles left at home and of stepping into a dreamy destination that would not be out of place in a film!
You might be thinking “yes, but where to stay?” – put off by bad experiences in cheap hotels or high prices quoted for the more luxurious options. Cottages in Italy are an alternative used by thousands of travellers each year. There are many luxury Tuscan villas available around the region which will satisfy even the most demanding of tourists.
Maybe you have never stayed in self-catered accommodation and the thought of it has you a little bit worried; do not let little niggles other people might have had stop you. Staying in a villa or cottage gives you greater flexibility and allows you to relax. No timetables to stick to, no restricted areas and no other tourists with whom you will have to share queues for the buffet. Remember to always book any lodgings for your holidays in Tuscany through a trusted and established operator, to ensure you are provided only with the top-quality Cottages in Italy. It is also recommended to part with your cash only in websites which show certifications for their insurance policies and Identity Theft Protection. If in doubt, you can contact the Association of British Travel Organisers to Italy, who will provide you with names you can trust of tried-and-tested companies that have been in the business for over 20 years.
The climate in Tuscany is mild, and normally the recommended months to visit are May, June, September and October. Summer is hot and can be crowded, although if what you are looking for is a location to relax with your family and let the children swim in the villa’s private pool, July and August could be the answer to your woes, and a Tuscan villa the perfect accommodation.
