Stay longer… Why not extend your stay in Tuscany with 3-nights or more at the incomparable Hotel Panzano in the heart of Chianti. With so much to enjoy in this charming region, you’ll want to make the moment last. For further details and prices please call 020 8392 5858.

It’s an undeniable fact that the Italians know how to enjoy life: good food, great wine and quality time with the people who matter – and that’s what this fondly restored three-bedroom farmhouse is all about. Facing south and with views you could lose yourself in, it’s a dream of a location in the hills around Radda in Chianti and right in the centre of the Golden Triangle of Florence, San Gimignano and Siena, which are all about an hour’s drive away.

However, before you go exploring, there’s much to be enjoyed in and around your comfortable villa. It’s a typical wooden-beamed, terracotta-tiled Tuscan home, enhanced by some very user-friendly contemporary touches, thanks to the owner's keen eye for detail. Pretty pastels in the living-dining area and bedrooms create a restful, uplifting mood and the traditional-style kitchen is well-equipped - a still-or-sparkling chilled water filter providing instant refreshment.

For anyone who likes a sense of their own space, there’s an en-suite twin room downstairs with doors opening out into the lovely garden. The master bedroom, with a whirlpool bath, and a smaller double with wonderful views are upstairs. All the bathrooms have a shower too. And before you slide contentedly into bed, the Jacuzzi and sauna add the finishing touches to total relaxation.

Outside, a well-kept lawn rises up behind the house and leads to the swimming pool, which is heated in the cooler months and has a covered seating area for escaping the sun. It’s an outside space made for living in, with a summer kitchen, wood-burning barbecue and covered dining area that’s perfect for balmy evenings spent in the company of a Chianti Classico – the fruits of an afternoon tasting session in one of the area’s many boutique wineries.

While getting out and about may mean simply borrowing one of the villa’s mountain bikes, it can also be a cultural adventure, starting with Radda in Chianti, about a 15-minute drive away. This walled medieval town was the capital of Chianti, now it’s a wonderful place to catch a summer festival with music, dancing and, of course, more of that excellent local food and wine.

If Tuscany is still unfamiliar holiday territory, the iconic trinity of Florence, Siena and San Gimignano should be on your list. Each is a cultural treasure, where visitors gather round the main squares to drink coffee and people watch, sit down to world-famous cuisine, dip into upmarket boutiques or disappear into the cool interiors of museums and galleries where centuries of art and history unfold before your eyes. And all this is just part of what makes Chianti such a wonderful place to stay.

From the moment you arrive in Tuscany, you are invited to share in its grand passions and indulgent pleasures – world-famous wine, mouth-watering food and epic histories. Each of Tuscany’s ten provinces has its own unique personality, but wherever you stay, you’ll find yourself surrounded by a verdant patchwork of olive groves, cypress trees and vineyards. From the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence, to the narrow streets of hilltop San Gimignano, Tuscany makes for a stunning escape.
