If you’ve ever watched the Diane Lane classic, Under the Tuscan Sun, it’s probably safe to say you’ve dreamed of moving to Tuscany or, at the very least, booking an extended vacay there.
Listen to me: It is time to make your dreams a reality. It’s not too late to book that trip. In fact, there’s no time like the present, because you can now rent none other than the Villa Bramasole, officially known as Villa Laura, for a week-long stay.

The property, which consists of the 17th century Villa, farmhouse, and limonaia (AKA greenhouse for growing citrus), lies just outside the town of Cortona in Italy and was restored in 2006.
Stepping inside the villa, you’ll find 10 bedrooms (which comfortably sleep up to 20 guests), 10.5 bathrooms, a cozy fireplace, wine cellar, home theater, and a game room.

Outside, you can “stroll the grounds and explore the lake, take a swim in the pool, or dip in the jetted tub.” Not enough options? Don’t fret. Relax on the hammock under the fruit trees, pick organic veggies from the garden, and stock up on “homemade products, jams, passata, sauces, and oils.”
According to Luxury Retreats, depending on when you visit Villa Laura, accommodations will cost anywhere from $2,362-$4,051 per night. Econolodge this isn’t.
