One of the great holiday experiences when staying at a villa in Tuscany is to have a private dinner cooked for you, and the housekeeper at Villa Rupoli comes highly recommended! It has to be said that Italian home cooking really is second to none, with the use of tasty seasonal and local ingredients and complimented by a glass (or two!) of the fine local Chianti wines. You can spend many a fine evening relaxing at your villa with your family and friends, enjoying the excellent food and the stunning scenery, long into the Summer evenings.
In addition to the stunning scenery and the tranquil, relaxing environment that the Tuscany region affords, there is also plenty to do with your family and friends! Practice your Italian cooking, wine tastings in the fabulous Chianti vineyards, walking in the beautiful hills and countryside, swimming in your private pool, bicycle rides, tennis, golf, visits to the beautiful local villages, and not forgetting trips to the magnificent cities of Florence and Siena, both of which are steeped in history and tradition.
