Italy Holiday Villas

Italy Travel Guide

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.

Why & Where to Stay

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.

    €188 to €188 EUR/night  
    A beautifully restored free-standing stone farmhouse with a fully independent 90 square metre apartment below (see separate listing), providing a secluded haven after a busy day's sightseeing. Both the main house and the apartment can be rented separately, or together for a larger group. The house is maintained to a high standard to ensure the comfort of our guests, as well as ourselves, as we often return for extended stays. Every year we refresh and update whatever needs attention, from small things like new linen and updating kitchen appliances to major improvements such as as redecorating or replacing heating systems. When we’re in Australia our manager, who lives nearby, maintains the property as if it were her own. She is like family to us and is always there to help if there are any problems. A booklet of information covers the A to Z of the house, details local services, and gives support phone numbers including a direct line to us in Australia. Being a real home rather than a dedicated holiday rental is one of the things that makes the house special. Tastefully furnished and well-equipped, it is a house to feel at home in. The generous country kitchen features a large antique table and is really the heart of the home. An oak refectory table and antique boudoir grand loaded with family photos dominate the dining and living rooms. (Having made the journey from the south of Italy to Australia then back to Tuscany, the piano is sadly now more ornamental than musical.) Antique farmhouse furniture offers ample space for guests to unpack and completely settle in, and the comfy Natuzzi sofas make a quiet night in with a DVD a viable option. Additional power supply supports the many appliances. There's reliable plumbing and strong water pressure. All windows have screens and internal cypress shutters. In summer the 400m elevation promotes refreshing breezes, while the thick stone walls help cool the interior. Efficient central heating keeps it warm and cosy in the cooler months. (Unfortunately the fireplace seen in the photo doesn't work.) The house nestles in the hills 3.5 km above the village of San Polo in Chianti, so a car is a must. San Polo is slightly removed from the tourist turmoil yet it offers great essentials shopping, a popular restaurant and good road access to the must-see towns and sights of Tuscany. Proximity to Florence gives us convenient autostrada access, although you can’t see, hear or even imagine an autostrada from our tranquil rural setting. Set in its own private fenced garden in a rural neighbourhood of farmhouses and olive groves, each window of the house has a pretty outlook over the garden or the valley. The lawn is often scattered with daisies, and fireflies sometimes come out at night. The garden overlooks the Arno valley towards the distant oak and pine woodlands of the central Apennines. The surrounding forest offers up its bounty of porcini mushrooms, wild asparagus, even truffles, to intrepid locals who set out in small family groups to enjoy the peace on sunny weekends. Depending on the season, around the house and garden you may find grapes, plums, raspberries, apricots and figs. The squirrels usually get the hazelnuts and almonds. Ahead of their trip, our guests receive a comprehensive booklet (PDF) of tips and recommendations, from our favourite restaurants and day trip suggestions to the best outlet shopping and other little-known gems. It’s quite extensive and, like the house, is updated each year. Many guests find it useful, particularly first time visitors to Italy.

    This comfortable, well equipped 90 square metre apartment is ideal for a couple or small family. It occupies the most ancient part of our beautifully restored stone farmhouse, revealing small traces of its 13th century origins during the restoration. The apartment sits below the main house, which was restored by us some years ago as a family home. This much loved and cared for property is still more family home than holiday rental. We return from Australia every year to maintain, fix, renew and update everything that needs attention. Both the house and the apartment were freshly painted throughout in 2016. The apartment restoration was done with the same attention to quality and detail as the main house upstairs. The two properties can be rented separately or together for larger groups. Please see Property ID 231966. Totally independent from the main house, the apartment has its own driveway and entrance (although both are at ground level because of the slope of the land). It is very spacious, refreshingly cool in summer and cosy in winter. Additional power supply supports the appliances, it has reliable plumbing and strong water pressure, and all the windows have screens, internal cypress shutters and pretty views across the valley. Traditional farmhouse furniture offers ample space for guests to unpack and completely settle in. The kitchen is well equipped for preparing meals at home, and the comfortable living spaces and good range of DVDs make a quiet night in a viable option. The apartment provides welcome respite after a busy day's sightseeing. While it does not share the main house garden, it does have its own private little dining terrace which faces the valley and our cypress lined track, and of course there are the surrounding woodland areas. The forest offers up its bounty such as porcini mushrooms, wild asparagus, even truffles, to intrepid locals who gather in small family groups to enjoy the tranquillity on sunny weekends. There are many lovely walks around the property, or just take a glass of Chianti to the bench in our little olive grove and watch the sunset. The property nestles in the hills 3.5 km above the village of San Polo in Chianti, so a car is a must. San Polo is slightly removed from the tourist turmoil yet it offers great essentials shopping, a fabulous restaurant and good road access to the must-see towns and sights of Tuscany. Proximity to Florence (about a 25 minute drive) gives us convenient autostrada access, although you can’t see, hear or even imagine an autostrada from this peaceful rural setting. Although we don’t live on site, we do have a loyal group of friends and retainers equipped to resolve any problems quickly and efficiently. A booklet of information at the apartment covers the A to Z of how everything works, plus it lists local support phone numbers. We encourage guests to sms us with any concerns so we can ensure a quick resolution of any issue. Ahead of the trip, all our guests receive a comprehensive booklet (PDF) of tips and recommendations for things to do and places to go. These are some of our favourite things, compiled over years of experience in Tuscany and other parts of Italy. It’s quite extensive and, like the house, is updated each year. Some guests find it useful, particularly first time visitors to Italy.

    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. Also in the area are tennis courts, horse riding and , now the new Golf Course at Cortona -

This proves very popular and we recommend early reservation. We are spectacularly located in a prominent elevated position in a South facing valley which brings long hours of sunshine and a favourable micro climate. The house is approached by a lane which winds its way from the main road, crossing over a river by an ancient bridge and then winding upwards through olive groves to reach the property. There are extensive private wooded grounds which drop away from the house giving a real sense of privacy and peace. The whole atmosphere is one of utter tranquility – we are far from any major road and the only sounds are the splash of the water as it tumbles from rock to rock, the birds and the summer calling of the crickets. At night, we are far away from any light pollution and guests always enjoy the brilliance of the stars and the closeness of the moon. There is nothing to spoil the view and to witness a morning here is truly magnificent – the light has a wonderful brilliance and luminescent quality which never fails to enthrall. The living area is comfortable with sofas and individual armchairs, a hardwood dining table and chairs and occasional furniture. The kitchen area is finished and equipped to a high standard by an exclusive Italian designer and manufacturer. There is a wood-burning stove for the cooler evenings and the whole suite is centrally heated for winter use.

    This luxury villa is located in a serene, rural position, adjacent to the Monti Sibillini National Park, yet only ten minutes from Tolentino and access to the SS77(Rome-Florence-Bologna-Venice). Immaculately restored , it looks out on an idyllic vista of patchwork fields, gnarled olive groves and orchards and the occasional verdant grapevine. Its rose-filled garden tumbles down towards the superb pool which in turn mirrors the surrounding landscape. The restoration was led by a local geometra renowned for his appreciation of the Marchigiani architecture and his meticulous attention to detail. From the different terracotta tile patterns downstairs and upstairs, to the metre thick stone walls throughout and the wooden shutters, every care has been taken to ensure it looks as it would have when originally constructed – although enhanced by the benefits of modern architecture. With four large double bedrooms and four bathrooms it is ideally suited to families or up to four couples. The extremely well-equipped kitchen would challenge the creativity of both master chef and amateur alike. For more casual dining there is an original wood-fired oven as well as a modern gas barbecue. It is situated 10 – 15 minutes from several exquisite hill towns: San Ginesio (recently named one of Italy’s most beautiful hill towns), Loro Piceno and Urbisaglia being just three of them. The latter two have superb restaurants. Cultural pursuits can also be fulfilled with many nearby attractions.
