Looking for your dream home in Tuscany, Italy?
Discover the definitive selection of the best real estate: luxury property, from stunning coastal villas to country houses
Tuscany always has been the most culturally-flourishing region of Italy; and, for many, the ideal place to live and rejuvenate the spirit.
Buying a House in Florence: the Most Famous Province in Tuscany
Florence is the heart of the region, which gave the world the Renaissance. Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Dante, Machiavelli, and Galileo are among the most famous cultural icons who once lived there. It’s impossible not to mention that Florence is the most expensive city in Italy, with its broad ranging luxury residential and commercial real estate market.
Despite Florence’s typically high-end lifestyle and exorbitant prices, on JamesEdition we offer both a wide variety of beautiful Tuscany properties and an equally extensive price range. You can find listings up to US$38M (approx. EUR 35M) alongside affordable real estate with prices under US$1M. Some of our estates even are marketed at rates as reasonable as US$700K (approx. EUR 630K).
Province of Florence: Benefits of Buying a House in the Valley of the River Arno
The Province of Florence provides an exceptionally clean and safe city lifestyle. Most importantly, the location is close to the countryside and alluring rural living. Mere minutes outside of Florence, you can find yourself in the middle of the countryside, with its fruit and olive trees, old farmhouses, and countless vineyards.
Gambassi Terme is one of the communes in the province of Florence with a wide range of authentic Tuscany villas. Prices range from US$15M (approx. EUR 134K) to cheaper houses for US$635K (approx. EUR 570K).
Province of Lucca: the Most Luxurious Villas in Tuscany
Situated in the north of Tuscany, Lucca borders the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west. The province boasts a colossal number of ancient monuments and churches dating up to the 8th century.
Lucca is easily accessible by car or train from both Pisa and Florence, making it an enticing area to buy or rent a property.
The most luxurious and exclusive area is the town Forte dei Marmi - definitely one of the jewels of the Tuscan coast. It is uniquely placed between the Apuan Alps and the sparkling Tyrrhenian Sea.
Sophisticated travelers and residents revel in the exclusive atmosphere of this prosperous cultural center with its gardens, modern luxury villas, gorgeous new apartments, famous fashion houses, and hotspots for noted celebrities and entrepreneurs.
In this region, JamesEdition offers its richest selection of real estate available for purchase. Prices are attractive and range from US$600K (approx. EUR 539K) to US$6M (approx. EUR 5.39M).
Near the town of Lucca, you also should take note of the small yet splendid villages of Barga and the ancient Bagni di Lucca.
Homes for Sale in the Provinces of Pistoia and Prato
Not far from ancient Lucca and Renaissance Florence lies Pistoia, the Italian Capital of Culture 2017. This Tuscan town offers residents and visitors the chance to explore the cloisters and churches surrounding one of Italy's most magnetic duomo squares.
The province also is well-known for the cultivation of plants and flowers, as well as the popular Italian "Agriturismo." If you are unfamiliar with the concept, “Agriturismo” is renting out or vacationing in farmhouse resorts.
If you're considering buying a home in Tuscany, the province of Pistoia could be the perfect choice. Especially the town of Montecatini Terme -- the biggest “spa town” in Italy. The real estate prices on JamesEdition for this area generally are above US$1M.
Only 20 kilometers from Pistoia is Prato, the second largest city of Tuscany after Florence with a rich industrial history and many exclusive villas. JamesEdition offers homes in this commune with a median price of US$3.3M (approx. EUR 2.9M).
Gorgeous Real Estate in Noted Tuscany Provinces: Pisa and Livorno
Pisa is one of the most visited spots in Italy. In addition to its rich culture, it is one of the most modern and vibrant cities in Tuscany, providing high-quality living. On our website, you will find many types of properties: from affordable city apartments with prices beginning at US$600K to gorgeous castles, located on the hills of the Tuscan countryside and costing up to US$7M.
When considering buying a house in this province, special attention should be paid to the towns of Casciana Terme and Pomarance--another well-known and unique spa village of Tuscany. If you would enjoy living next door to the largest geothermal area in Europe, Larderello, you’ll find Pomarance to be ideal. JamesEdition offers 7 stunning villas in this region of Tuscany with a median price of US$1.2M (approx. EUR 1.1M).
A little south of Pisa, on the Ligurian coast, is the luxurious and very beautiful province of Livorno. One of the most desirable areas for buying a house there definitely is Castiglioncello. This little seaside town, beloved by celebrities and far-famed figures, has become a vibrant social hub. The picturesque Pasquini Castle hosts large events and international conferences every year. If you are considering buying a property in the province of Livorno, JamesEdition recommends Castiglioncello. The median real estate price on our website is US$1.5M (approx. EUR 1.3M).
Real Estate on the East of Tuscany: the Provinces of Siena and Arezzo
Research and subsequent rankings of the quality of life in Italian provinces show that Siena leads the cities of Tuscany. It meets high standards both in expected city amenities as well as in the real estate market. Within Siena, Val d'Orcia (Valdorcia), the wine paradise of Tuscany, deserves a special mention as well as the village Castiglione d’Orcia, nestled in the spectacular countryside.
JamesEdition offers diverse homes in this area; from smaller apartments for about US500K (approx. EUR 450K) to huge estates with around 60 ha of vineyard for US$28M (approx. EUR 25M).
Next to Siena and slightly to the east lies the province of Arezzo. In addition to the city of the same name, which became famous after the making of the film Life is Beautiful, this area will please you with similar exclusive opportunities to buy real estate. For instance, Cortona: the small, charming town in Val di Chiana (Valdichiana). Frances Mayes's Under the Tuscan Sun was filmed there, which made the town a highly sought-after area.
On JamesEdition, we have 63 homes for sale in Cortona with prices ranging from US$611K (approx. EUR 550K) to US$7.2M (approx. EUR 6,4M).
Buying a Holiday Home in the South of Tuscany: Province of Grosseto
Grosseto lies on the Tuscan coast, in the area of Maremma, a large zone overlying southwestern Tuscany. Grosseto's major highlight is its proximity to the fascinating nature reserves near the coastline.
When seeking for places to buy real estate, we recommend the communities of Magliano and Monte Argentario. On JamesEdition, you can find a wide selection of fantastic Tuscan villas to buy in this region with prices ranging upwards from US$589K (approx. EUR 531K).
Wine regions of Tuscany
Tuscany boasts 10 DOCG wine regions and a few dozen DOC wine areas. The list of approved quality labels for Tuscan wines includes world-famous names such as Chianti and Montepulciano or Brunello di Montalcino. The region, with its great wine diversity, is singularly valuable for wine connoisseurs.
