When to go to Borgo Pignano

Tuscany is a region with a mild and sunny climate, so you can plan a villa holiday here for almost any time of the year. Temperatures drop in the winter (especially at night), but this is also a great time for a villa holiday if you fancy adding in a day or two skiing in the Apennine Mountains. Peak time in Tuscany pairs with the European school holidays – and it’s also the hottest time of year here too, with summer temperatures that can rocket into the early 30s. You’ll find the most pleasant weather in the summer’s bookend months – May, June, September and October are still warm and sunny, and crowds and prices will noticeably drop for the better.
