Self-catering is the natural choice for most family holidays in Tuscany: this is prime villa territory. See properties in Tuscany with partner cottages.com. There are also plenty of budget-friendly family campsites in Tuscany.

The growth in agriturismo  farmstays – dovetails with the rising public interest in sustainable living and where what we put in our mouths comes from. Agriturismi 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 agriturismo in Tuscany is Al Benefizio close to the town of Barga, on a smallholding where honey and olive oil is produced (owner Francesca will show you how). 

Italian hospitality extends to its hotels: see our feature on Florence With Young Kids for places to stay in the Renaissance city.
