Luxury Holidays in Italy with Only Exclusive Travel

The ‘Bel Paese’ (Beautiful Country) is renowned for its contribution of delicious dishes, its placement at the pinnacle of the fashion industry, its luxury sports cars and motorcycles, diverse regional cultures, dialects and beautiful coasts. Especially famous worldwide for its introduction of pizza, pasta, and other offerings that are now considered multinational culinary staples, it is no wonder that good Italian food is so highly reputed.  The gorgeous alpine lakes and mountain ranges provide enough reason to visit this stunning land, and with our selection of stunning luxury resorts in Italy, you certainly won’t require much more persuasion.

Tuscany
A place of rural charisma, you can experience a sense of the untouched, timeless traditions of the local culture, whilst still enjoying a modern and lavish Italian experience. Tuscany is also a great region for outdoor winter sports; the most dazzlingly white snow adorns the Pistoia Mountains which are loved by skiers from all over the world. A popular destination for filming, the landscape can boast the beautiful setting behind blockbusters such as ‘Gladiator’ and the charmingly poignant ‘Life is Beautiful’. Brimming with the biggest names in the art world, such as the Renaissance artists Donatello, Michelangelo, Galileo and Dante, Tuscany has contributed significantly to the repository of art in the world. Their extraordinary paintings, sculptures and architectural masterpieces prove that there is something inspirational in the Tuscan waters. Explore Tuscany whilst staying at the Terme Di Saturnia or Hotel Castello di Casole resorts.

Sardinia
Sardinia’s turquoise seas on the cusp of white sandy beaches and almost tropical climes are yet to be rivalled. With a hint of Spanish legacy as well as an allegiance with Italy’s plains across the waters, Sardinia is an island with Catalan flavour. Catalan, the local dialect, is widely spoken here, offering a refreshing and unique cultural experience. You can visit the historic Nuraghe Su Nuraxe, a world heritage site, Castello Malaspina, an archaic ruined castle, and other gorgeous sights when staying at any of the Forte Village resorts. Sardinia is simply sublime.

We have selected the best and most sumptuous resorts in Tuscany and Sardinia for you to visit; sample the local wines and Prosciutto e Melone under the Mediterranean sun in your pick of our three luxurious resorts. You can thank us later; prego.

Weather

Sardinia
A pleasant Mediterranean climate; an exceedingly long summer and a short, humid winter, interspersed with three short rainy seasons around October, December-January and in March. Sardinia’s summer lasts from May till October; early and late summer ranges between 20-30ºC, although breezes frequently soften the intensity of the heat. The winter is usually quite mild with most days getting to around 14ºC, though the evenings can be very cool if not cold.

Tuscany
July and August is hot, sometimes stiflingly so, when the humidity levels are high. The first rains are expected in middle to late August along with a decrease in temperature. September and October can still be very hot with blue skies, less tourists and less intense heat. November’s night-time temperatures drop, starting a succession of crisp Autumn days, yet spring always seems to come quickly.
