Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Tuscany provides the backdrop to the genius and creativity that was the Italian Renaissance. The region boasts a great variety in its geography dotted with its lovely hill towns, coastal resorts, vineyards, olive groves, marble quarries and even winter ski resorts. World famous towns and cities are Cortona, Siena, Arezzo and Firenze. The climate in Tuscany is very mild, in general. The summers in Tuscany are without rain and very hot, especially in the valleys. Spring (April and may) and autumn (October and November) might be rainy but there are still dry, sunny days. In the winter there are sunny, mild days but at night it sometimes gets very cold. July is the hottest month with temperatures from 23°C up to 30°C.
