Famous for its excellent wines and fabulous Tuscan food, cypress trees and olive groves, and perfectly preserved Renaissance treasures, Toscana Village in Balesin Island is a masterful model of Italy's Tuscany region. The Mediterranean climate calls for outside living areas so enclosed gardens and patios for dining and recreation are a common sight.
The architecture boasts traditional Tuscan rustic yet sophisticated techniques with curved archways, high and vaulted ceilings, exposed wooden beams, terracotta bricks and textured neutral walls with warm rich earth tone accents of yellow, red and green.
We went back to this Italian themed-village that afternoon to swim and savor the most-raved about ultra-thin pizza you can only find at Trattoria Toscana. Made with only the finest ingredients, it was the best 4-Cheese and Prosciutto Pizza I've ever had the luxury of tasting!
I fell in love with the rustic feel and exceptional Italian food in Toscana, making this my second favorite village in the island paradise of Balesin. So the next time I will travel here, it would probably be a tough choice on where to stay between Mykonos and Toscana!
