Tuscany might be renowned for its picture-perfect countryside and top-notch food and wine, but it's rarely a source of bargain holidays. That's why we recommend snapping up this deal from Travelbird -- for £95.50 per person, you get a week in a hillside farmhouse near Florence, including a wine-tasting tour and a cooking workshop, for 45% less than usual.
Arrivals on 3, 17 May; 27 September; 4, 11, 18, 25 October. For £26 more per person, stay in a One Bedroom Apartment on 10, 24 May; 20 September.
Accommodation is in a Studio in the Castello di Ristonchi (within the grounds of the Fattoria), all of which come with a kitchenette and TV. The hillside location is a highlight, with vineyards and olive groves all around and Florence 15km away.
A tourist tax of 1€ per person, per day, applies, to be paid directly to the hotel.
