Discovering Italy is a journey of joy and we have villas in Italy for rent and boutique hotels to excite. Along the sparkling canals of Venice, to the splendour of Florence, the cradle of renaissance, up through the rolling hills of Tuscany and Umbria with their charming castellated hilltop villages, through the ruins of Ancient Rome and finally down to the vibrant south to Amalfi and Puglia with its conical-roofed trulli houses, Italian villa holidays enchant.

Not to be forgotten are Italian lakes holidays on the lovely lakes of Como, Garda, Iseo, Orta and Maggiore rich with historic palazzos and gardens of stately trees, flowering shrubs, manicured lawns all framing the lake views and mountains to the north.

Whether the Eternal City pulls at your cultural heartstrings, you dream of Amalfi Coast holidays, or escaping to a historic hill town is your dream, we have villas in Italy where you can uncover all the delights that one of the best holiday destinations in Europe has to offer.


However, the major cities are not the exclusive repository of these riches. Lots of luxury Italian villas are located near towns that offer elaborately painted duomos, rich histories and medieval antiquities. Thanks to the Etruscans, Romans and the Renaissance; Italy is considered the art capital of the world. Extraordinary paintings, sculpture, frescoes, Byzantine mosaics and architectural masterpieces in Rome, Florence and Venice form this astounding cultural treasury.

And what would a luxury holiday to Italy be without its food? Through the centuries, invasions by the Greeks, Arabs and Spanish, other political upheavals and even the discovery of the New World influenced its development. Italian food as we know it started to form after the fall of the Roman Empire when cities separated and developed their own traditions. Today regions are known for certain cuisine: the north for risotto and osso bucco, the central provinces for tortellini and the south for pizza and spaghetti.
