There's an extra level to relaxation when you don't have to pile into a car every time you need groceries, or the kids would like an ice-cream. Walk into town for your morning Cappuccino or for your evening meal, then walk back in the evening as the fireflies flicker in the fields and the moon rises over the vineyards; this is real Villa living.
We've selected all of our villas in Italy with villages, towns or restaurants within walking reach - we visit each and every one personally and test the walks too, so we can give you first-hand advice and accounts on what each walk is actually like, and what is close by. From this luxury villa with a/c, private pool and by a village, to this family villa in Tuscany with a pool we've been there, so just ask!
The header photo on this page is of Casa Etrusca, a luxuriously appointed home in a village in the Val d'Orcia. It has a garden and a plunge pool as well as restaurants and shops within easy walking distance - the perfect way to feel part of Tuscan life.
