Family-friendly places to stay in Tuscany

Self-catering is the natural choice for most families visiting Tuscany: this is prime villa territory. See our range of properties in Tuscany with partner Cottages4You. There's also plenty of budget-friendly camping in the region

The growth in agriturismo – basically, farmstays – dovetails with the growing public interest in sustainable living and where what we put in our mouths comes from. Agriturismos run the gamut from quite basic to rather luxurious (some have swimming pools). Some give guests the chance to participate in farm tasks, and some offer self-catering apartments/cottages in addition to B&B rooms.

A good example of an agriturismo in Tuscany is Al Benefizio ( close to the town of Barga, on a smallholding where honey and olive oil is produced (the owner Francesca will show you how). See also the Trips tab for the Tuscany Adventure holiday offering agriturismo accommodation plus rock-climbing, cycling, cookery and other activities.

Italian hospitality extends to its hotels: see our feature on Florence With Young Kids.
