There are relatively few hotels outside the cities and towns of Tuscany. The main cities of Tuscany are well provided with hotels and pensioni but visitors may well be tempted by the luxury villa hotels in the Tuscan countryside. These are historical villas that have been converted into tourist accommodation, usually preserving the characteristic features of the classic Tuscan villa. However, farmhouses (case coloniche) are the main form of vacation rental accommodation in Tuscany, Italy. Many websites and individuals refer to Tuscan farmhouses as “villas” purely because they are stand-alone structures, but in fact Tuscan villas to rent are an entirely separate category from farmhouses. In addition, many Tuscan farmhouses have been divided up into self-catering vacation rental apartments, and the final category consists rural and village Bed and Breakfast rooms. B&Bs can be located in the Tuscan country towns and villages but wineries also offer this form of accommodation. A separate classification that can be superimposed on villas, farmhouses, apartments and rooms, is basically the division between true Tuscan agriturismi, meaning working farms such as wineries and/or olive oil producers, on the one hand, and all other rural holiday accommodation, on the other. The agriturismo experience is often the highlight of a vacation in Tuscany, Italy, and is certainly an economical option for your Tuscany holiday accommodation.
