WHAT IS A "VILLA" IN TUSCANY?
Strictly speaking, a Tuscan villa is a large, architect-designed
structure that would house 12 to 30 people and which often has a
formal garden integrated into the design concept. However, commonly,
usage in the vacation
rentals sector applies the word "villa" incorrectly to
almost any stand-alone house. Villas normally have large,
high-ceilinged rooms while a farmhouse will have smaller rooms with
lower ceilings. It's therefore important that you have it clear in your
mind what kind of house you want to stay in - a true Tuscan villa or a
casa colonica (a Tuscan farmhouse) - and then search the internet for Tuscan
villas to rent or farmhouse
vacation rentals in Tuscany and be sure to read the descriptions
rather than make assumptions based on what you searched for. Note that
many farm house rentals are actually not the entire house, but a part,
usually referred to as an apartment.
