Tuscan treasures

Gorgeous homes in the Italian countryside

Under the burning Tuscan sun roll marvelous hills, vineyards, olive groves—all postcard-perfect landscapes nestling medieval towns, rural villas, and contadino farmhouses, endless niches of dreamy dwellings exuding all the charm for which the region is revered. We’ve tracked down the best examples of such havens—from the typical to the surprising—to paint a warm-hued picture of the look and feel of Tuscan living. Inspiration abounds from these pages of achingly beautiful homes; who knows—maybe you can bring the magic of Tuscany to your corner of the world.
