Read all about it - our love affair with Tuscan property

How do you “do” Florence with small children? What’s the buzz about chilled Chianti, and - the greatest mystery of them all - just why do Tuscans live forever? 

Expat writers living and working in Tuscany explore these burning questions and more in English language newspaper, The Florentine.

The Tuscan countryside - just one of the aspects of life in Tuscany that expats wax lyrical about.

Winkworth International’s Italy specialists pick up a copy of The Florentine whenever we’re in town (you can read it online too). For us, the love affair with all things Tuscan jumps from the page, and for our international buyers it makes a great read because they share this passion. Together with its sister paper, The Tuscan Times, The Florentine is a wonderful source of information for everything from the latest art-exhibitions to the nearest English speaking dentist, making you feel right at home.

If you’re buying property for sale in Tuscany, you’ve probably visualized summers at your holiday home in the hills, surrounded by swathes of countryside, olive groves and vineyards. Or perhaps you plan to purchase a Tuscan city property? From Siena and Pisa to Lucca and Cortona, there are several to choose from, each with their own unique history.

Immerse yourself in Tuscan life.

However much time you plan to spend here, buying property in Tuscany is always more than a financial investment, and immersing yourself in the local news, language and neighbourhood is all part of the joy. Not to mention the regional cuisine.

Your Tuscany property comes with romance guaranteed.

Once you’ve browsed our Tuscany property listings you’ll see that having to choose between country and city living won’t exclude you from your very own romance. Rambling agriturismos, seaside villas and historic appartamentos all possess their own charm. That said, it’s worth viewing varied property types in different neighbourhoods, especially when buying in a new country. The remoteness of a house for sale in the Lucca hills, for example, might be your dream, but a villa in the pinewoods of Forte dei Marmi could work better for you in reality.
