It’s the holiday with a licence to thrill James Bond fans.
A seven-night package to Tuscany has been launched to mark the release of the latest Bond film, No Time to Die, on April 3 – and it includes a helicopter ride, driving cars that have featured in Bond films and a stay in a villa used as a filming location in Quantum of Solace.
Guests will also get the chance to sail along the Tuscan coast on a Quantum of Solace-style speedboat and dine at a Michelin-starred restaurant.
Talamon Tower in Italy, which featured in the James Bond film Quantum of Solace. Guests can stay in the villa on a 007-themed holiday
The villa is an ancient watchtower on a spectacular clifftop that has been fully restored. It sleeps up to 12 people

The package has been created by holiday rental company Oliver’s Travels and costs £90,000 for 12 people, or £7,500 per person.
The adventure kicks off with guests being taken by private helicopter transfer from the airport to their accommodation – Talamon Tower in southern Tuscany, where Rene Mathis tells Bond that Vesper loved him in Quantum of Solace.
The fully restored former watchtower has six bedrooms and six bathrooms and occupies a spectacular clifftop position.
Sleeping up to 12 people, it offers views of the Tyrrhenian Sea, the sandy beaches of Maremma Natural Park and the surrounding pine forests.
A professional butler will welcome guests with martinis and be on hand to make sure every need is met.
Not only do guests get to stay at the villa on the 007-themed holiday, but they are also treated to a helicopter ride from the airport to the property

Throughout the trip, Oliver’s Travels will also give guests the chance to drive through the Tuscan countryside in a selection of classic cars, such as an Aston Martin DB5, as seen in Skyfall, a Bentley Mark IV, which appeared in From Russia With Love, and a Ford Mustang, driven in Diamonds Are Forever.
Guests will also have access to a Sunseeker boat, reminiscent of the Sovereign 17 as featured in Quantum of Solace, to sail around the coast and the islands of Giglio and Giannutri.
The boat will also take holidaymakers to the Michelin-starred Pellicano restaurant at the prestigious Hotel Il Pellicano, a regular celebrity haunt.
There, a black-tie dinner will be served and guests will watch the sunset as they enjoy ‘delectable creations’ by chef Michelino Gioia, known for his ‘contemporary twists on traditional Italian cuisine’.
