This is your chance to win a holiday for four in Italy with the leading villa-hire specialists Tuscany Now, and The Independent on Sunday Review. You and three friends will stay for one week, from 6 to 13 September, at the Villa Rosso Fiorentino (pictured, right), a restored 16th-century farmhouse near the renowned medieval Tuscan village of San Gimignano. The house has a large swimming pool, five bedrooms and three bathrooms. It also boasts a stunning kitchen and Tuscany Now will be supplying a cook for two nights to prepare dishes, as featured in the River Cafe Cook Book Two. The prize also includes car hire, and more guests can be taken at your own expense.

To win, answer the four questions that appear during our serialisation of the River Cafe Cook Book Two. The first two were in the last two weeks' editions, the third is published today and the final question will appear on 11 May. Then send all four correct answers on a postcard, with your name, address and telephone number to The Independent on Sunday Review, Tuscany Now/The Independent on Sunday Competition, 1 Canada Square, London, E14 5DL by Wednesday 21 May. The winner will be notified the following day, and the results published in this paper on 25 May.
