Tuscany…with its verdant vibrant vineyards, traditional terracotta, fabulous food, casually chic and colorful charm, it’s really no wonder it’s someplace on just about everyone’s list of dreams. Who hasn’t at one point or another said they’d love to have a villa in Tuscany? It used to be that you just couldn’t get one (good catch Seinfeld fans), and today it’s all about the “downmarket”. We say it’s so much better to borrow. Our call- the apartments at the Relais Villa L’Olmo.

The Relais is an enclave of traditional stone structures nestled perfectly amongst olive groves and the elegant lines of the Chianti hills. Opt for your own private villa, or a cozy apartment which are all outfitted with mod technology, furnished in true Tuscan style and feature access to private pools and lush gardens. Either way it’s entirely your own temporary home, your very own piece of real estate for as long as you choose, only a short drive from the colossally culture-centric city of Florence.

Start your day with a breakfast created from the freshest local ingredients on a patio overlooking the hillside, amble into the small center of town, hop from vineyard to vineyard, or take a jaunt to the city via chauffeured driver and private guide. And ride high on the bragging rights of having your very own piece of property in Tuscany (even if only for a few idyllic days).
