  • Toddler Fun
  • Hotels with In-Room Kitchens
  • Varramista is a gorgeous active wine and olive oil estate midway between Florence and the Tuscan coast. Guests live among the vineyards in spacious apartments that are set-up for self-sufficiency. The property is vast with three distinctive guest areas. Varramista is unusual in that guests experience all the benefits of rural living yet the property is right off a main highway; this convenient location means day trips are very easy and families have immediate access to supplies and resources. The property is only 45 minutes from the coast and 45 minutes from Florence – an ideal choice for families that want to split time between beach/coastal activities and inland/cultural activities.
