27th February, 2017
As half term is fading slowly into the past and many of us are looking forward to the summer break, now is the ideal time to plan that perfect family holiday. When travelling with the whole family, you will need to make sure there is plenty to do, to ensure that everyone is entertained and having a great time.

Tuscany is seen as a sought-after destination, with it being such a beautiful part of Italy. It can also be seen a romantic destination, but in fact it can be the perfect destination for that family holiday you have been searching for. With so much to do and see, there is plenty to suit all ages, and to also make it a holiday to remember. Donít forget that we have a beautiful range of family friendly luxury Tuscany villas, to ensure your visit to this spectacular region, is well remembered.  

Your villa

When travelling with your family, staying in a villa can be the best way to enjoy the trip. When staying in a hotel or apartment, you donít tend to have much room. However, when you have a private villa to enjoy, you can really enjoy your accommodation as well as keeping everyone happy; especially if there is a private pool.

Caves in Tuscany

Throughout Tuscany there are some spectacular underground caves, with stalagmites, stalactites and even underground waterfalls and lakes. Throughout these caves, many various artefacts have been found; including animal and human remains. You can take a guided tour through the cave systems where you can see a wide range of plants and animals, as well as the beautiful cave structures.


If you want to bring a little piece of Italy back with you, take a cooking class which the whole family can enjoy. It will be the perfect activity to get the whole family involved, and is also a great way to taste some authentic Italian food.

Why not make your own ice cream in Castellina? Visit Simoneís shop and explore the mystery behind great tasting ice cream. Just pop into his shop in the heart of Castellina, it wonít disappoint! Want to see how cheese is made and have a go at it yourself? In Cugusi you most certainly can. Because of its open landscapes, which are perfect for animal grazing, this area is famous for its Pecorino cheese.


ACQUA village water parks which are located in Cecina and Follonica, are the perfect family day out. This attraction is suitable for all ages, and of course great fun. The admission price allows you to stay all day, so pack a picnic and your swimwear, and enjoy a fun-filled day.
