SINE QUA NON: TOSCANA

Take two weeks for it. You will want it to last forever anyway. There are places you can fast forward, and there are places you can resist the temptations that come along the way.

ONE: Rent a car and discover the countryside.

Toscana has the most beautiful medieval castles and villages in the world, and the most wonderful country roads. If you don’t have the freedom to move between vineyards and take in the iconic cypress tree lined landscape, don’t even say you’ve been to Tuscany. Stay at a Tuscan farm/ villa. Our thing is an old farm, full of character and surrounded by olive trees and vineyards in Chianti, close to Siena.  Best time of the year: September

P.S: When in Florence, stay in a palazzo. Don’t drive in Florence.
