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.

Whether you’ve been to Italy before or still planning to tick it off your bucket list, check out Owner Direct’s travel guide to help you explore Italy.

Seven good reasons to visit Umbria In Umbria you learn to know the meaning of beauty. Umbria is the heart of Italy, but not simply for its geographical position. The region’s wealth of natural and artistic wonders seems almost inexhaustible. Travelling the roads of Umbria is a journey full of surprises, continuously suspended between the signs of a well-preserved past and a vocation for the future that is entirely new, that has reawakened Umbria from a torpor that lasted for centuries (from the Renaissance onward, at least), bringing to light a region that is alive and exquisitely beautiful. Umbria today, reinventing itself fashionable but without overdoing it, has much to offer visitors: sport, culture, museums, epicurean delights, healing waters, and musical events of international renown. Because Umbria is a land of balance, able to assemble a thousand facets and a thousand different souls into a single fresco. Pool heat is not required from May to September, outside of that it can be heated for a metered fee that will be collected on departure.

The region’s wealth of natural and artistic wonders seems almost inexhaustible. Travelling the roads of Umbria is a journey full of surprises, continuously suspended between the signs of a well-preserved past and a vocation for the future that is entirely new, that has reawakened Umbria from a torpor that lasted for centuries (from the Renaissance onward, at least), bringing to light a region that is alive and exquisitely beautiful. Umbria today, reinventing itself fashionable but without overdoing it, has much to offer visitors: sport, culture, museums, epicurean delights, healing waters, and musical events of international renown. Because Umbria is a land of balance, able to assemble a thousand facets and a thousand different souls into a single fresco.

    Location Lying in the heart of the Valle d’Itria at the crossroads that connect the two market towns of Martina Franca and Cisternino; this home is approached by a steep rocky climb before opening up to the calming dimensions that surround the Tenuta. Then commence the generous grounds, the green laid grass that softens the stone network of paving between the whitewashed lamia and trullo buildings, before taking its journey to the bamboo shaded pergola, the garden terraces of rock roses, the lavender bushes, grape vines and climbing jasmine, silvered leafed olive trees, vegetable basins and finally the majestic oaks (fragni) that overhang, cloaking the property in a line of custodial protection. The aquamarine water pool is inlaid into the stone paved environs and from here the scenic backdrop that fills the skyline to the West can be viewed, the baroque town of Martina Franca. Family & Friends Congratulations. You have chosen a home, a dream-like space to accommodate your friends and family and have the pleasure of being sheltered from the world.

The kitchen is bright and airy with those expansive double doors to the pergola providing a naturally well-lit interior. The kitchen is assembled with examples of modern technology and ancient ways blended and forming a new contemporary. Every detail considered to achieve balance and harmony, combining selected and collected pieces to amuse the passion of the creators, native to Puglia. Exteriors A pergola covered with bamboo occupies central stage in front of the kitchen doors; the stone table can seat comfortably all outside for al fresco dining during the BBQ season. Lofty olive trees scattered around the pool area provide a natural place for an afternoon snooze under a canopy of coolness and an oak tree lined pathway circles the grounds which beckons its visitors to take an early evening stroll. Naturally, there is a swimming pool, a private place for a plunge, to be playful or to simply cool off. The panorama is stunning, breath-taking, calming. All the inner and outer spaces come together, like a group hug, to the centre, to the large open courtyard that is the soul of this home, where the sky above and the earth below, creates a peace within.

    The view from here is - "just stunning but wait until you see the pool..." ... Villa is - "simply beautiful " Two comments form guests in August 2016 Villa is for sure, a really special property for both friends and families to enjoy. Tucked away on the sleepy hillside of Castiglion Fiorentino and where guests can make this their "home from home" - The property welcomed its first guests in May 2016, - The villa is set within an olive grove where the visible ruins of an ancient defence castle of Castiglion Fiorentino can be explored and enjoyed. Adjacent to the larger villa is a (deconsecrated) church from the 12th century which has also being restored. The Villa and its annex provide three bedrooms, three bathrooms, modern kitchens, 2 sitting rooms, a vast terrace with some of the loveliest views of the valley and the town of Castiglion along with the private Infinity Edge pool - strategically situated to enjoy the fabulous views. It is about 3 km from the town, where there are many restaurants, bars and shops and, there is also small shop,bar and restaurant just across the valley if you did not want to travel into the town, Much like the other villas here, this is also a good location - an excellent base to explore Tuscany its many hill towns, festivals, wineries and countryside including easy easy day trips to Cortona, Pienza, Montepulciano, Siena etc - Florence is also easy by either car (1 hour) or by train from our local station. This is one of our first reviews from May 2016. A first review says: “The houses are surrounded by a beautiful old olive grove. There are two terraces overlooking the valley and a very nice infinity swimming pool. The view is breathtaking. I have been in this valley before but the view here beats everything. There is a small terrace in the back to catch the early morning sun. The large (Giant) terraces in the front catch the sun from 10 am to sunset. For people like me who love to read in the shade : plenty of shade available under the surrounding trees. The olive groves around the houses are actually grassy meadows, ideal for children's play. In the woods on top of the hill behind the house lie the remains of a 13 th century castle. You have to drive up a drivable access road from the valley floor to reach this house. The next and only other house is 100 m down. The road continues up the hill for another 1.6 km, winding through beautiful olive groves and forests, offering breathtaking views. Then then for easy hiking, road changes into a hiking trail that joins the hiking trail that circumvent the valley. We were the first occupants in a newly developed property. We were two couples and stayed a week in May 2016. The property consist of two houses. The smaller one , just a few meters away, has one bedroom, with a king size bed, bathroom and a living space with kitchen. Tho main house has two bedrooms, with king size bed and the other with two single beds. The main house has two bathrooms. A dining room, sitting room and separate kitchen. Hendrik, NL.

The Villa is located in the Valle d’Itria, close to the small village of Sisto. Amidst the valleys and hills of the countryside, between the Adriatic Sea on one side and the Ionian Sea on the other, the Valle d’Itria has a unique mix of towns really worth a visit; Martina Franca with its baroque architecture, Cisternino and its panoramic views, Locorotondo and its indefinable charm, Alberobello - the city of trulli, Ceglie Messapica, and the dazzling white city of Ostuni. Sisto Village has many practical amenities including restaurants, a bar, and a mini-market. Plan a visit with your friends and family; we have room for 6, or 7 at a squeeze.

Services upon request Property divided in main farmhouse (sleeps 8, 3 baths) and two separate mini apartments (sleep 3 with 1 bath each), which allows for more privacy or easily splitting the house in two or three parts.

The living room has plenty of seating around the large fireplace, uncork some wine and - trust us - that is a good story telling space. The dining room table sits 14 and the kitchen makes you want to try your hands at making bread or rolling out some fresh pasta. Terra-cotta floors throughout the house, an open stone staircase, tiled bathrooms, a waterfall tub, exposed beams on every ceiling and dreamy views from every window. As soon as you step inside you will appreciate the care and heart that went into renovating this great property, careful to add high comfort, while keeping that wonderful Tuscan feel.

The kitchen includes a dishwasher. Our driveway is approximately 1.3 kilometers in length from the main road to Priello. Paved in bits and gravel in others it's a fun road you will learn to love. The road winds up to two farms, woods, over a little waterfall, past our neighbors around a corner, past hayfields and right when you think "is this the right road?" you will see our classic cypress lined drive and you have arrived. It is less than a mile to the main road but it seems a world away with peace and quiet you can only dream of. This part of the Tiber Valley is right in the middle of the Italian peninsula; in Tuscany, but borders on the counties of Umbria, Marche and Romagna, regions with varied characters which at different times have influenced its history, culture and landscape leaving marks which can still be felt today. It is an area which is between the Tyrrhenian and Adriatic seas. It has a complex story, as it is not only the valley where the river Tiber has its source, a river which has shaped the fertile plain for thousands of years; but it is also mountainous. Actually it is more mountainous than flat, but even in this case it is impossible to give a unanimous definition to the hills and mountains of this area.
