Tuscany’s Real Estate Agency


Finding the perfect home is one of life’s most important and exciting experiences, but one which can also be stressful and daunting, especially in another country. At Gran Toscana Properties we aim to take the stress and uncertainty out of the process by providing a comprehensive 360-degree service where we are with you every step of the way, from helping you understand the characteristics of the Tuscan real Estate market, the area you wish to purchase in, to finding the property and dealing with any legal, administrative or bureaucratic aspects.


For our clients who wish to sell a property, we are equally dedicated to providing the same level of service. We understand that there are many reasons behind the decision to sell and we are committed to ensuring your property is marketed in the best possible way.


We have created a tight, trusted network of external partners to help deliver this promise, made up of some of Tuscany’s most respected professionals and Tuscan Real Estate experts. Whether you are buying or selling, you can draw on the expertise of architects, notaries, legal and financial consultants who share our local knowledge, passion for the area and commitment to delivering exceptional service.


Based in Forte dei Marmi on the northern Tuscan coast, our property agency is specialised in luxury properties and investment and development opportunities in Versilia, Tuscany and Liguria.




Our core focus is on three areas:

  • Looking for and appraising ideal properties so we can match the perfect property to the right client
  • Identifying and appraising real estate development opportunities in the residential and tourist accommodation sectors
  • Evaluating ROI on property improvements and renovations


Whether you are looking to buy or sell, we would love to hear how we can help you, so please call us or visit our office in central Forte dei Marmi.


A presto!
