The Tuscany & Porto Ercole driving holiday is a journey of discovery through the famous wine regions of Tuscany. The hotels are hand-picked by us to only include the very best ones in Italy. You will be staying in four different exquisite hotels, all places where you can indulge in luxury – and relax.
On your day of arrival to Florence you will check in to the stunning Villa La Massa, the exquisite jewel of the Villa d’Este Group. This 16th Century estate sits on the banks of the Arno River and is surrounded by 22 acres full of lemon trees and olive groves.
The next morning after your breakfast the car of your dreams will await you outside the hotel. On your first drive you will be heading towards famous Tuscan postcard landscapes into the Montepulciano region, and follow sweeping country roads to Porto Ercole, a charming seaside town on the Tuscan coast. Here you will check in to the unique five star paradise Il Pellicano, with a breathtaking private beach. When many people think of Tuscany they think of cypress lined roads, countryside green hills, and vineyard landscapes. You will see plenty of that within the itinerary. However the Mediterranean should not be forgotten – Tuscany has an absolutely stunning coastline, and Il Pellicano stands on one of the most breathtaking seafront locations.
Wake up to the view of a glistening sea and enjoy a sumptuous breakfast on the hotel’s terrace that overlooks the Mediterranean. Today’s drive takes you back inland briefly stopping by the village of Bolgheri, a place where you can visit well-known vineyards and discover the local producers. Your final destination for today is Castello di Casole in Casole d’Elsa, an historic castle now boutique hotel considered to be among the best in the world, surrounded by rolling hills and dreamy views. Enjoy this wonderful destination and relax, because tomorrow’s drive has more surprises in store for you. For your last drive we have lined up even more picture perfect landscapes – and fantastic driving roads as well, as you will follow the most famous wine route Cia Chiantigiana back to Florence. En route you have the chance to visit some of the most beautiful hilltop villages in Tuscany – Volterra and San Gimignano. Upon arrival back in Florence you will check in to an aristocratic residence located inside a centuries-old park that overlooks the Boboli Gardens – the elegant Villa Cora.
