Tuscany, often decried as too busy or too “done”, is neither when the right areas are visited at the right times – the lower Tuscan Appennines, say, in late autumn, when Val di Luce (www.valdilucesparesort.it; from €162) will begin accepting guests. This Alpine-style spa-cum-ski resort is set amid pine and birch forests, just 100m from its own ski-lift and a short drive from other modestly sized ski resorts – though the light-suffused suites, billiards and games rooms, indoor and outdoor pools and saunas may deter you from many excursions.
