When you think of Vail, Colorado, fashionably outfitted skiers gliding down snow-covered slopes and a lively après ski scene often come to mind. But what if we told you you could get a postcard-perfect Tuscan escape in the heart of Colorado as well? Rolling hills dotted to the horizon included.
That's precisely what this storybook-like seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom rental in the heart of Colorado offers. Fittingly called "A Piece of Italy" the beautiful villa available from the Plum Guide has Tuscan-inspired architecture both indoors and out, with a warm yellow exterior, natural stone details, and exposed beams and wood floors.
Inside, the master bedrooms are outfitted with super king-sized beds for maximum sleeping space and relaxation. The dreamy rooms also have stone fireplaces and balconies looking out to sweeping views of the surrounding mountains.
But la dolce vita doesn't end there, other indoor amenities include a cozy cinema room, a huge indoor gym kitted out with stellar workout equipment, a spa, hot tub, pool table, and a giant kitchen with a wood-fired pizza oven, copper pans, and of course a barista-quality espresso coffee machine. It's the ideal spot to perfect your Cacio e Pepe pasta recipe, or if cooking is off the table then a home chef can be arranged.
Adventurers wanting to venture out of the property will be pleased to know the area's a real hotspot for outdoor action, with vast mountain slopes for some of the best skiing in North America and charming hiking trails to take on in the warmer months.
