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.

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.

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.

    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.

    Stylish hideaway tucked away in the countryside of Ostuni. This trullo offers two contemporary and stylishly furnished structures. Traditional architecture and modern comforts synchronized to accommodate two spacious bedrooms and living spaces. The recently added swimming pool demands relaxation in the shadow of formidable long views of the valleys of Ostuni. Location Immersed in the olive groves of Ostuni's inland valleys, this trulloa is located along a rural farmer's track and reached through the olive groves once having passed the trulli complexes, some restored, some abandoned ruins. Although in Ostuni territory, the trullo is within a 6km drive to the market town of Cisternino. Here you can find all amenities required of a holiday with shops, boutiques, restaurants, festivals and a historic town to stroll about and explore on a warm summer's night. Friends and Family Two couples or a couple with young teenagers or children (have to share the twin) or equally couples with a small child (we supply cots and highchairs) would work best at this trullo. The rooms are ample size for you to be independent and enjoy personal time. Interiors: Stylish interiors with a touch of travel incorporated. Puglia is evident in the structure and restoration works but each room has a trip down memory lane as the owners have been fortunate to have travelled the world before having settled on purchasing a crumbling down trullo in Puglia. Comfort is by far evident with lounge space dedicated to relaxation mode. The principal unit is the trullo cone, that was once a pile of rubble, restored and amplified to create a double or twin bedroom, lounge with fireplace and kitchen and dining room. The second unit is equally as large with a bedroom and ample lounge. Mini-fridge and coffee/tea making facilities. Exteriors: Relaxation within and relax out. The BBQ area found just outside the kitchen area and where you would dine al fresco many a night if you're not enjoying a meal at one of the numerous restaurants in the Itria Valley. Additional seating area provided outside for reading under an olive tree or just soaking up the panoramic views. The swimming pool, 10 x 4 metres, has by far the best view across the valleys. As the sun sets over the horizon, the sky is filled with some of the most spectacular colours that nature impulsively grants us.

    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.
