Siena’s Villa Carina sits between the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Apennines and is surrounded by fields of grapevines, olives groves, and green oak forests. Guests can explore nearby wineries, and film buffs might recognise the location from Russian director Andreï Tarkovski’s movie, Nostalghia.

Sleeps 12; €1.295m via ArchitectenWoning

Masseria Battimuro is nestled within an olive grove in Puglia’s San Michele Salentino between the Ionian and the Adriatic Sea. The minimalist southern Italian holiday home is being touted as a commercial opportunity as well as a holiday home: there’s an opportunity to run an olive oil business with products from its groves or rent the space out for events and shoots.
