Oliver's Travels villa holidays will give guests the chance to drive through the Tuscan countryside in a selection of some of Bond's favourites, such as the Aston Martin DB5 as seen in Skyfall, the Bentley Mark IV which appeared in From Russia With Love and the Ford Mustang driven in Diamonds are Forever.

005 Take to the air, land and now sea in true Bond style as guests follow the shores of the Tuscan coast and the islands of Giglio e Giannutri in an Sunseeker reminiscent of the Sovereign 17, as featured in 'Quantum of Solace', before arriving at the Michelin Starred Pellicano restaurant at the prestigious Hotel Il Pellicano, a regular celebrity haunt.

In the comfort of their private villa, guests will be taught how to make some of the most famous cocktails featured in Bond films by one of Tuscany's most experienced mixologists. Guests can then enjoy their creations with dinner cooked by a professional Oliver's Travels' chef on Talamon Tower's beautiful terrace.

As an added bonus, Oliver's Travels will organise a professional poker dealer to host a game of Texas Hold'em at the villa for guests to experience their very own private casino. Afterall, some of James Bond's best moves take place at the card table.
