This video is for Villa Campo, located in the Chianti region of Tuscany. The villa, a restored farmhouse, rents year round for about €3,700 to €6,600 per week depending on the season. While this may be out of your price range it does sleep 12 so perhaps with friends it could be a reality (my wife mentioned that it reminds her of the villa in Stealing Beauty so perhaps a group of artists and writers could find their creativity here).
In any event, it is such a beautiful place (and beautifully shot video by VillaCampo.com) I couldn't help but post it. Perhaps it will help chase the winter blues away.
Buon divertimento! (Enjoy!)
