Holiday villas in Italy

Many are the benefits of choosing vacation rentals in Italy villas as opposed to Hotel accommodation. Top of the list is the complete freedom in organising your holiday, planning your own schedule and arranging your meals to suit you, whether it be at one of the excellent local restaurants or in a leisurely atmosphere on the patio, as the day slowly fades away in a magnificent sunset.

Just imagine sipping the local wine down by the pool, in complete relaxation, immersed in the splendid panorama that surrounds you. Whether your choice is an elegant country residence, a city apartment or an ancient farmhouse, the character or splendor of these villa rentals will leave you with sweet memories as you sink into the Italian culture and way of life, something you would not experience in the usual package tour or hotel accommodation.Surprisingly, vacation rentals in Italy are not an extravagance. You will find that the rates per person are in fact either lower or on a par with Hotel rates.
