There’s so much to recommend Tuscany in the Winter months – here are just a few of the upsides to whet your appetite…
Tuscany’s Fabulous Fungi: Truffle Season

Karma Borgo di Colleoli is strategically located amidst truffle-rich forests, offering you the opportunity to participate in truffle hunting expeditions and to sample traditional truffle-infused dishes.
It’s Tuscany…but tranquil!
Unlike the bustling Summer months, Winter transforms Tuscany – including its iconic cities like Florence and Pisa – into a peaceful haven, devoid of the heaving Summer crowds., You can explore the charming towns, vineyards, and historic landmarks at your leisure and you won’t have to worry so much about finding a table at the many amazing eateries across the region.
A cosy & historic retreat
Karma Borgo di Colleoli’s historic charm, with its stone walls and crackling fireplaces, sets the perfect stage for a Winter escape – albeit a much milder one than you’d find in Northern Europe! Whether you’re enjoying a glass of regional wine by the fire, strolling through the manicured gardens, or simply relaxing in your elegant suite with breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside, you’ll find your stay warm and inviting.
Journey into Renaissance History
Venture to Florence, Lucca or Pisa to uncover their legendary Renaissance treasures. Florence offers the magnificent Uffizi Gallery and the awe-inspiring Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, providing a glimpse into the era’s remarkable art and culture. In Lucca, enjoy the amazing Piazza Dell’ Anfiteatro, while in Pisa, the Leaning Tower stands as a testament to mediaeval architectural ingenuity.
Immerse yourself in the heartwarming traditions of the region. Attend local festivals, savour traditional Winter delights like chestnuts and vin brulé (mulled wine), and admire the captivating nativity scenes that grace towns and churches, celebrating the spirit of the season.
