Tuscany is one of the world’s magical places, where everything you’ve dreamed about is true. The landscape of rolling hills, lush green valleys and golden sunlight is just as you imagined it. The local wine is light, refreshing Chianti, the food in made-to-linger restaurants is farm-fresh and home-cooked—and the pace of life is what you make it.

Take a hike, or a bike, and explore back roads where olive groves stretch for miles and cypress trees stand as sentries on the horizon; take in a concert at a medieval castle; take out an easel and paint. Stay for a week’s “Inclusive Tuscany” vacation at the luxury residential resort of Il Borgo di Villa Bossi-Pucci and you’ll be able to do all of that and more.

If you fall in love with Tuscany and Il Borgo, as so very often happens, you can stay forever—under a newly offered plan to purchase a suite of your own. On the grounds of a 17th-century estate with spectacular views, the 28 one-, two and three-bedroom suites with private balconies and fireplaces were created from farm buildings painstakingly restored and furnished in authentic Tuscan style, with all modern conveniences added.

Choose the vacation stay and soak up Tuscany’s enchantment under the guidance of host Fernando Guerrieri and his staff. It’s a flexible, all-inclusive package at around $2,995 that allows you to follow your own agenda, theirs or both. If you want to poke around the charming village of Greve, for instance, tell Fernando and he’ll have a driver take you there and back with suggestions on what to do and see. If you want to play golf, he’ll arrange it at a nearby course. Are spa treatments and massage on your list? Just ask.

Breakfasts are delivered to your room in a basket each morning, dinners are at local restaurants as part of the package. Nancy Beres of New York City and her traveling companion from suburban Larchmont called the breakfasts “just perfect,” and liked the idea that brochures about the places they’d visit that day were tucked into the baskets along with little gifts like bunches of fresh herbs and stamped postcards. They also liked the classes offered to guests in subjects such as conversational Italian, cooking and painting. “It was a vacation—and we were treated very well; in fact, we were pampered, which is what we wanted—and it was an education too,” Ms. Beres said, adding, “On the whole, we felt we really saw Tuscany.”

Investing in a Dream – Those who want to keep Tuscany in their lives can make that happen, too, here at Il Borgo. The purchase plan offers suites starting at around $375,000, along with all the amenities one expects in a luxury resort and the same do-it-your-way approach. Americans who’ve bought in like the idea that their “little piece of Tuscany” is furnished, maintained and managed for them. When they feel like going, they go. When they’re not there, they can add their suite to Il Borgo’s pool of vacation rentals, if that’s what they choose, and the staff will handle the details.

“I didn’t want to buy a place that would just sit there,” said Lela Jacobson, a realtor from Oakland who, with husband Ed Hart, bought an antiques-filled, two-bedroom unit with a sweeping view of vineyards. Pete Pickslay and his wife, Denise Botticelli, attorneys from San Diego, feel the same way about their two-bedroom, which they plan to use three or four times a year, and offer for rent in between.

“Basically, it’s an investment,” said Pickslay, “but it’s one that allows you to enjoy yourself.”
