Tuscany has always been a popular holiday destination with the British. However, the British nation's love affair with Tuscany actually goes back centuries. In the eighteenth century, it was popular with Britain's writers who went to Italy looking for literary inspiration, whilst it's major cities have always attracted artists to their centres. More recently, in the 1970s, the British flocked to the area keen to take advantage of relatively cheap property prices and bought wonderful old villas and farmhouses and restored them to their former glory. This love affair has certainly led to much demand for holiday accommodation in Tuscany and there is now no shortage of accommodation to choose from. So how do you find the perfect Tuscany holiday villa for you?
