The beautiful villas of Tuscany throughout the area are the best way to enjoy the Tuscan lifestyle.

A Tuscan villa is the considered the only way a person should stay in Tuscany despite the availability of hotels. This is because by staying in a villa, travelers can stay amongst the beauty and tranquility of the Italian countryside. To many people, renting a villa is Tuscany may seem like only a dream, but it's really not as difficult as it sounds!

If you want to save a lot of money on renting a villa, you may want to consider avoiding Tuscany's peak season. The prices in the off seasons are significantly lower than during the summer months. That being said, you may luck out with a decent price during the summer, but why?

Although Tuscany is warmest during the summer months, it is definitely a treat to experience it in the spring or the fall. Tuscany is gorgeous year-round! Consider visiting Tuscany during the spring or the fall instead of the summer.

During the fall, it is still warm enough to enjoy a swim. Also, this is the time of year grapes are harvested in order to make wine. If you would like to lend a hand, there are many wineries that would enjoy the extra help. This can make for an unforgettable experience!

The spring is a bit chillier than the fall or summer, but the scenery during the spring is wonderful. The best times to visit for these lower prices is from the beginning of April to the end of May OR from the beginning of October to the middle of December.

A villa is very different from a hotel room. Those used to traveling to a variety of different places may be used to staying in a hotel for just one or two nights before moving on to a different region an thus booking another hotel for a few days.

When staying in a villa, plan on staying at least a week. This is because villas are normally rented out on a weekly basis and not by the number of days. However, who wants to stay in Tuscany for just two days!?

Staying in a villa is a very relaxing way to experience Tuscany. Thus, those who visit this region should take their time to soak up all of what Tuscany has to offer from beautiful landscapes to world-class food.
