Ever dreamed of staying in a Tuscany villa with a championship-class golf course on your doorstep? Well that is what the Manzano Golf Resort in Cortona is offering visitors.

Set within 200 acres of rolling hills, the resort boasts a stunning 18 hole course designed the legend Gary Player.

However, don't forget to organise sports travel insurance in the rush to get to the crisp, lush, challenging fairways and greens.

Created as a tourism development, Manzano Golf Resort is a multi-functional resort featuring classic hotel accommodation and exclusive villas, with an on-resort wellness centre and extensive sports facilities.

Stefano Tosato, CEO of developer company, Manzano Sviluppo, said: "Planning permission is difficult to obtain in Italy and we are fortunate in having such a generous site allowing us to create a traditional Tuscan hillside community resort with the benefits of a world-class golf course and other guest facilities."
