Tuscany: Up at the Villa

Last week we told one of our readers how best to find a pad in Venice. This week, the DT turns its attention towards Tuscany. Reader asks: Am looking for a small house or an apartment in Tuscany for May or June. Any advice, or Web sites to browse?

Wendy Perrin and her team annually update a list of best villa rental agents, and one of the go-to Tuscany sources is Suzanne B. Cohen of Suzanne B. Cohen & Associates. Her collection includes affordable cottages and, thanks to her warm relationships with villa owners, she can open doors to the best restaurants and private art collections. Contact her through her Web site or directly at 207-622-0743 or

As far as browsing Web sites goes, Ondine Cohane, contributing editor and Italy expert, says Tuscany Net, Via Travel Design, and Papavero Villa Rentals are all good resources. Feel free to email her, too, if you'd like some insider information:

And if you're traveling through Rome and want an apartment there, just check out our sister site, the Perrin Post.
