About our villas for Spring Break in Italy

From charming rural retreats to grand historic estates and villas nestled near picturesque villages, our array of luxury villa rentals in Italy for spring break accommodates group sizes from 2 to 18 people. Whether you’re envisioning an intimate escape for two or planning a week-long reunion with family and friends to unwind and disconnect, we cater to all your preferences and interests. 

Almost every vacation home in this unique collection features a private heated swimming pool, and some even boast an outdoor hot tub for added pleasure. A select few of our Italian villas for the Easter holidays come with a chef, maid and other staff included in the rental price. Your in-villa chef and housekeeper will ensure you are well-fed and make sure you feel at home, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the pleasures of Italy during March and April. 

These tailor-made advantages are the key elements that elevate your experience with  Tuscany Now & More into something truly memorable. Each luxury villa in Italy comes with the added benefit of complimentary access to our Concierge Service, offering assistance with pre-trip arrangements and additional customised services at no extra cost. Our acclaimed Travel Concierge can coordinate a private chef, daily maid services, and shopping delivered to your villa and create unforgettable, intimate experiences, like Italian cookery classes and sommelier-led wine tastings right at your luxurious villa with a private pool. Furthermore, we provide you with an emergency contact number available 24/7 for anything you may need while you are in destination. 

Every villa mentioned in the list below is exclusive to TN&M, including a 16th-century architectural gem near Venice and a uniquely exquisite villa perched on the edge of a charming medieval village. A member from our small team personally visits or stays in each Italian villa we showcase, ensuring an in-depth understanding of the area. We have more than 30 years of experience matching every guest to the right villa. This is why we deliberately maintain a small portfolio, to uphold the highest standards, and why you won’t find this unique selection of vacation rentals listed on any other websites.

Experience the same amenities as a hotel with features like a heated swimming pool, gym and spa, but on a purely exclusive level. The villa is yours for the week to enjoy in peace. With the bonus of more space, comfort and privacy, villas become a haven for both children and dogs, as the majority of our villas in Italy are dog-friendly!

While vacation rentals like Ca’ di Lista, Palazzo Cheto and Casa del Poggio come fully equipped with dedicated staff to accommodate all requests, we also offer a whole host of additional services that can be arranged for you and your party at your chosen villa. Whether you want to organise a pizza party in the villa’s lush garden, arrange a private sommelier-led wine tasting from your al fresco living area or have a chef prepare a celebratory feast with live music, our team is on hand to ensure you can relax and enjoy your time. 

What to do in Italy in March

To coincide with Women’s Day, March in Italy is a time for giving. A cherished tradition involves gifting women with yellow Mimosa flowers, symbolising respect and solidarity. 

Annually, Rome pays tribute to its iconic emperor, Julius Caesar, through a celebration that unfolds in the historical Roman Forum. For those seeking a more active experience, the annual marathon dedicated to Caesar’s honour is an exciting opportunity. Embark on a challenging 42km course that winds through landmarks across the city, including the Vatican and Colosseum, for a unique perspective of Rome’s rich history and iconic sites. 

Not to be confused with the renowned Palio di Siena, the Palio di Somari takes the stage in the medieval Torrita di Siena. Dedicated to the patron saint of woodworkers, Saint Joseph, this event sees racers trade the customary Palio horse for a more unconventional competitor — the donkey. Immerse yourself in the festivities with medieval dances, flag-throwing contests, vibrant parades and banquets. 

Central Italy is one of the best places to visit in March, especially for exploring the beautiful great outdoors. Enjoy exploring the walking and cycling routes through Umbria, Italy’s Green Heart, and the breathtaking world heritage sites of Tuscany, like the Crete Senesi. Make the most of fewer crowds by visiting Florence’s iconic museums and by touring world-class wineries in the Chianti hills. Truffle season lasts from mid-December to mid-March. A great family-friendly activity, join a local hunter and his faithful dogs in a truffle hunting experience in the Umbrian hills. Veneto is also an ideal destination for outdoor lovers, with several regional parks to choose from and the beautiful lakes, Lago di Garda and Lago di Como, on the doorstep. 

Easter takes place on March 31st this year and is a very special holiday in Italy. The end of Lent is met with fireworks, parties and processions from Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome to Saint Mark’s Square in Venice. 

In Florence, Easter Sunday comes alive with the annual Scoppio del Caro (“Explosion of the Cart”). This historical tradition features 150 white oxen pulling a 30ft antique cart filled with fireworks to the Piazza del Duomo. The procession, accompanied by soldiers, musicians, and Florentines dressed in medieval attire, culminates in a spectacular firework display set off by the Archbishop of Florence, who lights a mechanical dove connected to the cart after Easter Mass. 

In the charming town of Sinalunga, located south of Siena, a slightly sweeter tradition unfolds with the Sagra del Ciambellino, also known as the “Festival of the Little Donut'', dedicated entirely to this local treat. Indulge in the delightful mini-doughnut, Ciambella, either soaked in a glass of Vin Santo or paired with a coffee.

Meanwhile, in the picturesque region of Umbria, towns like Montefalco and Gualdo Tadino host live passion plays on the evening of Good Friday. This spiritual region becomes even more popular with pilgrims during Easter, and the medieval centres of Orvieto and Assisi come alive with beautiful torchlight processions.

Food & drink for Spring in Italy

The first hints of Spring also mark the arrival of exquisite seasonal vegetables including leeks and purple artichokes. Spring is also the season for the best asparagus, which makes an amazing ingredient in risotto or served crisp with local parmesan. Meanwhile citrus, apples, spinach and celeriac mark the transition from hearty winter comfort dishes like Ribollita to a fresher, lighter summer palate. 

If you are planning to spend Easter in Italy, roast lamb is a popular dish throughout the country, served in Tuscany and Umbria with lemon and extra-virgin olive oil. 

However, the true stars of the season are the country’s myriad sweet treats, from traditional chocolate eggs to delightful breads and cakes. In Tuscany, the Colomba di Pasqua takes centre stage — a sweet bread similar to Panettone, adorned with candied peel, almonds and pearl sugar, shaped like a dove. For a Tuscan twist on Hot Cross Buns, Pan di Ramerino, featuring fruit and rosemary, pairs perfectly with freshly brewed coffee. 

Venture to Umbria and savour the Ciaramicola, a lemon spice Easter cake from Perugia,  topped with meringue and sprinkles. Elevate your villa rental experience by participating in an in-villa cooking class, where you can master the art of crafting these specialities before indulging in a feast prepared by one of our private chefs.  

In Veneto, Spring heralds Prosecco season — a perfectly celebratory drink for the occasion. Elevate your festivities with a private sommelier-led Prosecco or Vin Santo tasting arranged by our Concierge Service, to help wash down your Easter sweet treats.

March in Tuscany, Umbria & Veneto

In March, Italy experiences the gradual transition from winter to spring. Outdoor lovers, ready your walking boots and a light waterproof jacket. With the sun gracing most days, it’s an ideal time for exploration, however, a light rain shower here and there is not uncommon. 

If your villa rental is in Veneto or along the Tuscan Coast we recommend sticking to the comfort of your private heated swimming pool rather than venturing into the sea just yet. In Venice and Verona, anticipate average daytime highs of 13℃ (55℉) with nighttime lows of  5℃ (41℉). In Tuscany, temperatures can reach 15℃ (59℉) during the day, with overnight lows of 9℃ (48℉).

Umbria is a sunny haven to explore in March and early April, with just 9 days of rainfall, on average. Expect daytime highs of 14℃ (57℉) and a low of 4℃ (39℉) overnight, making it an inviting region for outdoor activities and a delightful spring getaway.

About our handpicked Spring Break villas in Italy 

At Tuscany Now & More we take pride in our service, which is why we keep our portfolio small and why all our villas are locally owned and staffed. This is how we ensure our guests a unique experience, individually tailored to your needs. Read the Tuscany Now & More story to find out more about what makes us different.

Concierge service

When you stay in one of our handpicked Easter villas in Italy, you benefit from unlimited access to our complimentary Concierge Service. If you want a private chef to cook dinner for a special occasion, would like a private cooking class in your villa kitchen or need your fridge stocked upon arrival, all you have to do is ask. Making your holiday lettings extra-special is part of our service. While you are in Italy, our 24-hour ground staff are available by phone or WhatsApp.

Checking in & out

You can check-in at your Easter holiday rental between 4pm and 7pm, but we can also accommodate alternative arrival times — just let us know ahead of your arrival. When you arrive, the villa owner or caretaker will greet you and provide a tour of the property, as well as any demonstrations of appliances, equipment and utilities you may need. 

Check-out is 10am on the last day of your holiday rental. The villa owner or caretaker will arrive at 9am to settle outstanding payments, if you have any. If you want to depart earlier, please let us know in advance.     

Cleaning

We make sure that all our luxury villas and private swimming pools are cleaned and ready for your arrival. Some holiday rentals also have additional cleaning and pool/garden maintenance scheduled during your stay. Maid service included with vacation rentals involves cleaning and tidying but does not cover making beds, kitchen cleaning, laundry or ironing. If you require any additional maid and nanny services, all you have to do is ask our dedicated Travel Concierge.    

Bed linen & towels

Our Easter holiday rentals include bed linens, bathroom and swimming pool towels for all guests, which are provided weekly. Extra services and changes can be organised via our concierge.
