As far as Italian real estate goes, Umbrian villages are cool, Abruzzan villages are neat, but nothing—and we mean nothing—beats the prestige of owning an idyllic village in Tuscany. And that's exactly what someone willing to shell out €3M (approximately $4.25M) can have: a series of 30 stone houses located some 40 minutes south of Florence and nestled near scenic natural features such as Appennino Tosco-Emiliano National Park, Mount Falterona, and the Arno River. Included are 70,000 square feet of living space, with the potential of development permits to expand it, as well as more than 24 acres of land. "The village would be an ideal project for a hotel village, club hotel, spa hotel or similar," boasts the brokerbabble. Yet something about that seems at odds with the potential for the grand utterly glorious dolce vita.
