Centered around its very own medieval hamlet, this 1,700-acre property in the wilds of the Arezzo region is owned by Ferruccio Ferragamo—son of Salvatore, founder of the famous Florentine fashion dynasty. The estate includes a lavishly restored ten-bedroom villa in English-country style, with an indoor pool and a formal Italian garden—the whole thing rented en bloc with staff (for the full bells-and-whistles experience with chef, sous chef, and waitress in addition to the default option of maid and assistant, we're talking a cool $50,000 per week in high season). There are also 12 apartments for rent in the medieval borgo (village); these are comfortable enough, with rustic Tuscan wood-beamed ceilings and cotto tile floors—and although the borgo's rather twee artisan workshops (imported, rather than original) strike a false note, the houses themselves have been sensitively restored, avoiding the fake retro approach that spoils some other Italian village conversions. Better, though, are the 16 apartments located in farm buildings scattered around the property. They have more light and more style than those in the village, and each has the use of a pool. A classic osteria serving traditional local dishes in the hamlet, much patronized by local day-trippers, completes this idyllic Tuscan retreat.

Open March 10 to November 10 and for two weeks over Christmas and New Year.
