Tuscany, a region in Central Italy known for its beautiful landscapes, rich artistic legacy and high culture. Florence, the capital of Tuscany is very popular vacation spot and one of the things that make these spots such unique vacation hideaways are the accommodations. Whether you’re looking a luxury apartment rental or a luxury villa rental, Tuscany has always more than their share. If you’re looking for Tuscany apartment then it has a huge selection of holiday rentals for both short and long-term use.

If you’re planning a short vacation to Tuscany, take your time finding the right accommodations because you have a wide variety to choose from, whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway for two or a family outing on a large luxury villa. The entire village of Tuscany is filled with large old farmhouses, barns or castles. These large building were so rich in an architecture and charm that the idea of tearing them down or demolishing them was just out of the question. Instead, the owners choose to renovate them into something that could be used as a holiday apartment or a villa.

Tuscany apartments are the smarter choice for holidays and when you stay in Tuscany, you usually want to be in a place that gives you a homelike feeling without many frills. Also you want to be in a peaceful place that will give you the chance to relax in the wonderful scenery that Tuscany offers and therefore you tend to choose accommodations in the countryside.

The advantages of renting a Tuscany apartment over any other accommodation rental are that saving quite a lot of money for the same quality. So, if you rent a villa in Tuscany you are likely to get a wonderful living space, large enough to throw a large party, but the price would also soar accordingly. Keeping all things equal, apartments are smarter because they are cheaper. Until and unless you need a huge space for yourself and your family during holiday, a villa may be definitely expensive.

Another important reason that makes Tuscany apartments a better choice is that owners are usually on site. If you need anything, they are there to help you. If something breaks in your apartments, they will fix it as quickly as possible and if you need a piece of advice on best restaurants, routes, daytrips, cheaper gas station, doctor, grocery store, they have all the information on their fingertips.                                                                                                         

Comparing Tuscany apartments to hotels, the smart choice is still on apartments because a three people family can run into expenses of 100 to 150 Euros per day for a three star hotel, for that price you can get a very nice apartment.

Countryside Vs. City Tuscany Apartments: Which One Should I Choose?

Tuscany apartments are always very much sought after by travelers all over the world. A great portion of those visiting Tuscany every year decides to reside in an apartment as the best choice over hotels and other kinds of accommodation rentals. The reasons are easily found in greater price to quality ratio, versatile locations both in the countryside and in the city, plenty of comforts, homelike feel, and a nearby helping hand for every necessity.

However, should you choose among Tuscany apartments in the countryside or those in a city or town setting? There are few points to ponder to answer this question.

What is your first aim during your holiday?

Are you going to be in your home relaxing, waking up late, having a long breakfast, reading your book, diving in the pool and sun tanning, letting the day drift away in total oblivion of the world? Then a countryside apartment certainly is what you need. If however you plan on being an early bird that cannot miss to visit at least all the important cultural and popular milestones of a Tuscan town or city, then of course the city setting is for you.

Do you value most tranquillity or convenience?

If observing the intricate branches of a beautiful oak in Tuscany sets you in a good mood, while strolling along Florence admiring the many Renaissance monuments makes you dizzy after a while, the countryside is for you. Also consider that in the city you will have all conveniences at your easy reach, while countryside Tuscany apartments may be a little remote and every necessity may require you to jump in a car. On the other side, city apartments are often without an elevator, so stay light with your luggage, your apartment may be on the fifth floor!


Usually city apartments are just a tad more expensive than country ones. The reason could be because there is so much choice of splendid countryside Tuscany apartments. Also, city apartments may provide a greater degree of privacy as you are in a condo versus a farmhouse with other guests. On the other hand you are very unlikely to get a swimming pool in the city, which usually makes for a nice spot where to cool off the summer heat spells.


If you have a family with kids, then you should consider the countryside. Tuscany apartments are always surrounded by a large garden, most often containing an orchard, olive groves, grass fields and safe games for children. The territory is usually made safe for children, although you can always make sure it is by asking the farmhouse owner.

I hope this brief comparison between Tuscany apartments in the city and in the countryside has helped you clarify which should be your next accommodation rental in Tuscany.
