Italy Travel Guide

Italy Holiday Villas

About Italy - Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy is a country in Southern Europe and shares open land borders with France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, San Marino, and Vatican City. Often nicknamed the Bel Paese (The Beautiful Country), Italy is long considered one of Europe’s most glamorous vacation destinations - you’ll find sunny isles, glacial lakes, fiery volcanoes, rolling vineyards, and urban landscapes harboring more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country. Few places offer such variety and most visitors wish they never have to leave. To make your Italy vacation more special, book your accommodations with Owner Direct Vacation Rentals. Choose from different properties like apartments, villa rentals, cottages, and farmhouses. Whether you’re on a family vacation or a trip with friends, staying in one of our vacation rentals can bring you comfort and a great time.

Where to Stay & Why - Ranging from magnificent historic estates and downtown apartment rentals to charming farmhouses in the countryside, Owner Direct offers accommodations with modern amenities plus deluxe features like pools, terraces, and outdoor dining areas with plenty of room for getting together with family and friends. Aside from having multiple rooms and bathrooms to make sure everyone is comfortable, spacious living rooms can have a sleeper sofa placed in front of a romantic fireplace and lead to a dining area. After exploring some of Italy’s must-sees, return to your home away from home and relax by the pool. Were you able to grab groceries at the market? Then head to the fully equipped kitchen, pour yourself a glass of wine and create your own Italian culinary masterpiece.

Outside, there could be a terrace where you can enjoy amazing views of the mountains, and a BBQ grill ideal for outdoor meals. Aside from that, there may be a large fenced garden, deck chairs, umbrellas, gazebo, extra seating and dining spaces, parking. Some properties even have a sports field, vegetable garden, orchard, private spa, relaxation room, and a gym. For a little extra, you can rent a home that offers daily housekeeping, breakfast, catering, airport transfers, and you can rent the place for parties and other events.

What to See & Do - This land never ceases to amaze, providing fresh discoveries and unexpected pleasures in many different ways. Choose well-appointed lodging that places the action right on your doorstep. Dare to visit Europe’s Mt. Etna, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and an active volcano. Visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa, which is famous for its striking beauty and awkward geometry. Discover the delights of Padua, home to Italy’s second oldest museum or sail around spectacular Sardinia, a diver’s paradise. Be inspired by the scenic Cinque Terre or bring out your binoculars and go wildlife watching in the National Park of Abruzzo. Take to the coast for water sports in the Italian Riviera in Liguria, the Adriatic, and Amalfi coasts. The beaches in Sicily are less busy, which has large sandy stretches on the southern coast. Many of Italy’s best dive sites are located in Sardinia.

Where to Eat & Drink - Aside from the usual pizza and pasta, tourists will enjoy waking up to the aroma of coffee and flaky pastries, and trying to eat their way through the day by sinking their fork into every decadent dish Italy has to offer. Sophisticated palates can embark on a deeper exploration of Italy’s many refined flavors with a truffle hunting adventure in Tuscany or an in-villa cooking course. You can also try some of the lesser-known local culinary favorites, such as Sicilian arancini. The good thing is, almost all vacation homes can easily access restaurants that serve fresh produce, like from an Agriturismo. In coastal villages, traditionally prepared fish and seafood are delicious!

With 4,000 years of vinicultural history, Italy is the choice destination for aspiring oenologists. From its noble reds like Chianti Classico to its refreshing whites such as Pinot Grigio, and its celebratory whites like Asti and Prosecco, there seems to be no limit to Italy’s wide variety of wines. You will surely enjoy your vacation home rental, most of which situated within reach of prestigious vineyards. For nightlife, cities such as Milan, Padua, Bologna, Rome, Naples, and Catania enjoy a raucous late-night scene with bars and clubs staying open until the early hours of the morning.

How to Get Here & Getting Around - By plane, larger airports are served by the major European airlines. Intercontinental airlines mainly arrive in Rome and Milan, with Rome being the main international gateway into the country. Rome Fiumicino (FCO) is the main hub, next is Milano Malpensa (MXP). Other prominent airlines with flights to Italy are Ryanair, Easyjet, WizzAir, Blu Express, and Meridiana Fly.

For getting around, Italy is a big country, and unless you opt for a one-base holiday, you’ll probably find yourself traveling around a fair bit. Both rail and bus services are good value and relatively efficient. Regular ferries service the islands and local buses link more out-of-the-way areas. Internal flights can be worthwhile for some of the longer journeys. Naturally, you’ll have the most flexibility with your own transport.

When to Go - The best time to visit Italy is in Spring (April to May) or Autumn (September to October). The weather in Italy is easiest to handle during this time and also less crowded. Peak season is between June and August. The sea is warm enough to swim in between June and September, but for those ski bunnies, you’ll want to holiday in Italy during December and April.

    Authentic Trullo Style - this Trullo is a small group of reclaimed abandoned trulli cones, restored over a decade, as a weekend hobby undertaken by its owner; wishing to recover the past and bring the trullo with graceful simplicity, into the future. The allure of this Trullo is the location in which it resides; along a silent country road, surrounded by nature, overlooking the vineyards and wide-open wheat fields. Little by little the owner has put the pieces together, from ancient stones left behind, others re-found, forming niches and alcoves, to create a homely trullo accommodation for a small family or two couples or perhaps a group of friends. The addition of a large courtyard and swimming pool, all within a fenced in and secured area; offering a private and restful ambient to its occupants, a brief separation from the every-day routine. Location In the heart of the Itria Valley,a valley topped with white washed towns, and quintessential villages and hamlets; neighboured by the Adriatic Seas to the East and the Ionian Seas to the west. The Itria Valley, with five main towns, is the central part of Puglia, making it a fitting place from hence to visit the area during your holidays. Alberobello is famous for its trulli population, they say there are more than one thousand in a concentrated expanse; Locorotondo, the quaint whitewashed round town also known for its white wine; Martina Franca, elegant and poised with a deep reputation for its ‘capocollo’; Cisternino, listed as one of the most beautiful towns in Italy with narrow streets and alleys, decorated balconies and stairs all leading to the main Piazza of boutiques and niche restaurants; and Ostuni, friendly and lively with panoramic scenery of the Adriatic Coast. Friends and Family The trullo is endearing, a charming crash pad for a couple or couples wishing to explore the area and return to the trullo to relax in the hypnotic evening sun. For young families, the poolside is a welcome distraction for many hours of fun. Interiors Warm, modest and cosy. The bedrooms are compact with full sized double in one, night tables for bed time reading, a niche for hanging summer dresses and a set of drawers. The twin room (could be used equally as a double if pushed together) has plenty of hanging space in the alcove and night tables. The kitchen corner is well equipped with dishwasher, and full-sized fridge. A small dining area in the lounge as a back-up for cooler nights when dining outside is not an option. The lounge area has a small TV with Italian channels, sofa bed (could sleep one) and two arm chairs. Wireless internet indoors. Exteriors Holiday essentials include a swimming pool and this Trullo will not disappoint. The fresh stone faced trullo and modern 10 x 5m pool (2 metres at the deepest end), compliment the setting. A main courtyard faces the entrance and a gazebo to the side for outside dining next to the stone BBQ and pizza oven. The poolside is private and enclosed with stone wall to the rear giving it full protection and foliage to the front and sides ensuring total privacy; a hide-out for grownups and an entertaining haven for children. This Trullo is the owner's passion, the result of years of hard work and love. He’s created a peaceful corner of Puglia with his hands, with an eye for tradition and simple living.

    This trullo is what holiday dreams are made of. Where better to celebrate an important anniversary or plan an Italian wedding than in a setting generously choreographed to rejoice in salubrious style. The original trulli cones date back some 150 years and have been restored under the attentive eye of the Milanese owners who have added a “few” modern modifications to enable their guests to experience life in a trullo whilst being utterly spoiled by its structural magnificence and interior elegance. Not with mentioning the addition of an infinity edge pool anchored on the hillside with teak deck surrounds and an impressive covered veranda furnished with dining facilities for all the family to share in the preparations of grilled food over a barbecue. Family & Friends This Trullo would suit couples old and new, a young family with children travelling with their nanny or a group of friends travelling together to explore the mysteries of the southern tip of Italy. With one doubles and three twin rooms plus four bathrooms there is a mix to suit all needs. Further details of the indoors: Lavishly restored trulli have been dedicated to the night area with the master bedroom occupying three trulli inclusive of private ensuite and dressing room. Two further twins share a bathroom within the same complex. Opposite the main trulli structure there is a private self contained trullo/studio ideal for a young couple or teenagers needing distance from the main holiday group. The living area, naturally well lit is a separated and non-communicating lamia with high barrel vaulted ceilings. The high-tech kitchen is central to the dining area with ample seating for 6-8 people adjacent to the open lounge with cozy ambient. Further details of the outdoors: The grounds are lawned encircling the main structure before the 10,000 square metres of surrounding land becomes dedicated to agricultural fields of oak and olive trees. The panorama has been preserved with pleasurable distant views across the Valle d’Itria to the front of the property with a contrasting wild woodland to the rear. The swimming pool is 12 x 5 metre infinity pool with a depth of maximum metres open from the beginning of the summer season through to the end of September.
