The wilderness of southern Tuscany, we just love it! Today we are making a tour along the south coast of Tuscany. And for the most part through the nature reserve called ‘the Maremma’. The rugged nature, the picturesque villages, the natural hot springs, the miles of sandy beaches with the clear sea water for a beach holiday… This undiscovered part of Tuscany is waiting to be discovered!
The ultimate feeling of freedom. The Tuscan air, the hills so green, the flowers so aromatic, the sun so perfectly shining over the grainfields. We are starting our day tour in our rented Fiat through the green Pisan hills. We have a number of must sees on our today’s program. But mainly we want to live the the moment, at a Tuscan slow relaxed pace!
Tuscan Villas VIP delivers you the ultimate Tuscan experience, VIP style! The best places in Italy including tours and wine tastings during your Tuscany trip. I (Agnetha) have been living in Tuscany for years. I feel at home here between the Tuscan hills. The lifestyle, the people, the culture, the nature, the food, the wines, the passion and the love. It was not love at first sight, it always takes some getting used to a different culture. However, everything the Italians do, they do with passion if you ask me. Although they sometimes take their time, perfection is the result. The villas that I have discovered during the years have usually been in the family for generations and are first completely renovated before they are rented out to tourists. It is great and useful to have a good relationship with the owners. We always agree that the Tuscan style should be maintained during the renovation of the villa, but the modern touch of today must be present.
The treatments and experiences
The Italian passion also appears in the VIP treatments. The owners of the villas agree with me that it is important to let clients experience some of the Tuscan culture during their stay. Think about the culinary passion and the love for the Italian culture. Italians grew up with the mentality that cooking, eating and drinking is an important and social affair. They take their time and put tons of love inside. A home cook is a really great experience. A personal chef that shares his passion with us, and honestly everyone in Tuscany can cook! If the guests are eager to learn, the locals become super enthusiastic! I have experienced a cooking course and pizza course a few times and this was an amazing experience. The fresh products they use, the presentation of the dishes…Then the wines. I do not drink wine any more, but taste the wines. The right Italian word for it is ‘sentire’. This means tasting, smelling, hearing and feeling. One word for all these meanings at the same time, all in perfect harmony with ‘tasting wine’. A number of wine tours and wine tastings have resulted in the appreciation I have today for the production of wine and the hard traditional work that comes with it.

More experiences – Passion for touring!
The Italians are proud of their country, in (almost) every aspect. The tours and excursions to cities such as Florence, Siena, Lucca, Pisa, but also the wine regions are organised with so much passion, the guides do not stop talking! Furthermore, I noticed that nothing is too much. Together with the right people, everything that guests want is possible to organise. I just love this country! A VIP holiday is easily organised with the help of my local Tuscan specialists. Needless to say, I also like to tour with my crew, we know Tuscany like no other! That’s wat we think at least. The truth is that there is always something new to discover in the heart of Italy. In your own way, on your own speed. By car, bus, bike, foot, horse, quad, air balloon…
