Tuscany is one of the biggest tourist draws in Italy, and with good reason. Featuring Renaissance paintings, medieval-era structures, and picturesque vineyards, olive groves, and cypress trees, there are plenty of things to see in this region. Given the number of attractions in this area, a good accommodation is a must so you can be sure that you’re well-rested so you’ll have enough energy to explore the sights. Book into one of the villas in Tuscany with a chef and you’re not just guaranteed comfort, you also get convenience, as you no longer have to worry about where you’ll get your meals.

1. Villa Accursio

Villa Accursio is so called because it’s named after Accursio da Bagnolo, a prominent figure in Tuscan history. Sitting atop one of the hills surrounding Florence, this property dates back to 1874, although it has seen renovations over the years to update it. It features its own swimming pool, ping-pong tables, and a sports court (which can be transformed into a basketball or a tennis court, or a soccer field), all of which guests are free to use. The package includes cleaning services and private chef who prepares 2 meals each day – breakfast and a choice of lunch or dinner.

2. Luxury Tuscan villa (from USD 784)

Surrounded by greenery, this villa is the perfect getaway for those who want to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Guests can even enjoy fantastic views of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Val d'Orcia. The home itself features a swimming pool and well-maintained gardens, and it even features woodlands, which serve as the home of various wildlife. Table tennis is also available for guests’ use. On top of that, the help of a chef in the kitchen, a maid to look after housekeeping and off-site concierge services provided by the hosts, gives you more time to enjoy your stay at the villa.

4. Villa Colombai (from USD 672)

Able to accommodate as many as 12 people, this villa provides guests easy access to the various tourist attractions in Tuscany; however, the features of the rental alone may make it hard for them to leave in the first place. The house, which is over a hundred years old, has a rich history, which includes serving as a schoolhouse in the 1920s. It has since been modernized with guests’ comfort in mind, and it comes with Wi-Fi, a salt water pool, an outdoor shower, a sunbathing area, a sports field, table tennis table, and a playground.
