Once upon a time in a castle in Tuscany ... No, your are not going to read the same old fairy tale. On the contrary, your are going to discover a new, original and suggestive solution for your next holidays in Tuscany.
At the time when they were painstakingly built, stone by stone, castles were not only a symbol of the power and wealth of their owners. Standing atop hills, they allowed to observe and control the surrounding lands from their impregnable towers.
Today, many of these century-old structures that in the past used to house ladies and knights, kings and minstrels, have been converted into luxurious lodgings . A mixture of antiquity (armours, paintings, fireplaces...) and modernity (comforts, swimming pools, facilities...) .
A very interesting option for you to take into account if you do not want to spend your holidays in Tuscany in a hotel, aparthotel, holiday farm or b&b.
