Scarlette Douglas is helping Laura and Matt fulfil their long-held dream of buying a holiday home in the spectacular Italian countryside of Tuscany.

Scarlette has five stunning properties lined up to show them, but will they love any enough to put in an offer?

Tuscany

What's the appeal?

Known for its stunning landscapes, with spectacular villages dotted in between, Tuscany is home to 7 world heritage sites and over 120 natural reserves. But it’s not just the great outdoors that make this area so famous. It’s regarded as the birthplace of Italian renaissance and the cities here are bursting with priceless art. It’s also well-known by wine-lovers for the wide selection grown here. With this combination of culture, history and nature, the area attracts more than 1.5 million tourists every year.
