Italy is heaven for wine lovers, and this home is the perfect place for guests eager to savour some of Tuscany's best vintages. It's part of a working winery, Villa Santo Stefano, and you'll be staying right next door to the tasting salon where you can sip on the estate's most delicious offerings. The accommodation is composed of a main house along with a guest cottage, making it ideal for larger groups who still want their own space. The interior is lavish yet comfortable, in true Italian style, with plenty of luxurious touches to make your stay extra special. Pick a book from the extensive library, eat in the gorgeous formal dining room, or slip into the marble bath for a relaxing soak in perfect peace. The outdoor space is just as mesmerising, with lush gardens and an outdoor dining table where you can share a meal under the stars. On sunny days, kick back on a sun lounger and soak up some rays before plunging into the swimming pool for a refreshing dip. It would be easy to never leave this pocket of paradise, but if you want to explore the wonders of Tuscany, then this is a brilliant jumping-off point. Lucca's beautiful old town is just 9kms away, and the beaches of Versilia are a twenty-minute drive from your front door. Plus, it's only a thirty-minute car ride to Florence and slightly further to Siena.
