  • Apartment on Lake of Como

    Lecco: Apartment
    2 BDR • 1 BA • Sleeps 6 • #119449
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    Ann says ‘All you need for a quiet holiday on Lake Como’
    The apartment was basic but clean and had everything we needed for a quiet holiday, including wonderfully powerful shower for after sport activities. We felt the rental costs were very reasonable at this time of year. The apartment had beds available for up to 7 people. Lovely balcony overlooking the lake and across the lake to Lecco. Parking was easy on the road immediately under the apartment. Bar, 2 restaurants and ferry stop within 5 minutes walking distance and local supermarket just 5 minutes drive away. The owner responded quickly to any request we made, right from the day we booked and gave us a friendly greeting - with Prosecco when we arrived.

  • Holiday Accommodation

    Amalfi: Apartment
    3 BDR • 2 BA • Sleeps 5 • #227144
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    Glen & Irene says ‘Outstanding Location’
    The apartment is 3 kilometres east of the town of Amalfi. Amalfi town is overcrowded on most days so better out of town than in it. The apartment itself is spacious and has two great decks that overlook the coast east and west with views a good 20 kilometres across the bay - that alone makes it special. There were only two of us in the place so the deck off the master bedroom was the morning and afternoon deck of choice. It is protected and the daily parade of boats going by is mesmerizing. There is a natural rock arch below the apartment that draws lots of boating action. The kitchen is functional and is sparsely equipped - we like to cook and did three of our four nights. We were hiking so we’re without a car - not sure you would want one as driving is difficult. Groceries are a planning event and you can bus or walk into Amalfi for fresh meat, poultry, fish and other staples. We had our driver stop in Minori on the way in to pick up groceries and meat at two different places. There is great fresh fish in Amalfi every AM and a functional barbecue on the upper deck for cooking. There are also two restaurants a short walk up the Main Street from the apartment - we tried one - the pizza, fish place and it was excellent. Make reservations. It was a lovely visit and by far the most beautiful location of our 4 stops along the coast. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Large and Bright Apartment

    Rome: Apartment
    1 BDR • 1 BA • Sleeps 4 • #65298
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    Kieran says ‘Roman Holiday’
    Having never visited Rome before I wasn't sure if this apartment was handy to all the sights. I needn't have worried - it is one street away from a metro station from which we were able to easily access all the sights and tours of this beautiful city. Many thanks to our host, who met us and gave us directions to everything and recommended a few more. He was also kind enough to organise our return trip to the airport at the end of our holiday. Excellent service. Many thanks again

    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    Christine says ‘Country house in Umbrian hills’
    A spacious and very comfortable country house, lovingly restored and exceptionally well equipped. Superb views, particularly from the corner terrace, perfect for enjoying an apero and watching the sun go down! The owner is very friendly and helpful, his mother, Gabriela charming. In addition, we were spoilt by the fresh figs and grapes.

  • Two Bedroom Detached Villa

    San Gimignano: Villa
    2 BDR • 3 BA • Sleeps 8 • #201154
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    Mike says ‘One week stay in late August’
    Perfect location and really close to San Gimignano, and easy drive to Florence, Siena, and Pisa all within about an hour. Directions to the villa are excellent. Host was very friendly, came early to meet us, and each day someone comes in to maintain the pool and gardens. Very private location in between two residential villas and on the small road from San G to Uignano.
    Pros - beautiful views over the Tuscan hills into the distance, very clean, well appointed, secure, private, excellent sized pool, spacious villa could sleep 6 at a push with three doubles (one of which is sofa bed) and there were two single beds available too. Mosquito nets over windows are very effective - didn't get any bites overnight! Two kitchens, with main kitchen with large fridge/freezer and cooker, no microwave. Three separate showers and toilets. Utility room with washing machine and iron.

    Cons - no air conditioning in bedrooms but ceiling fans and portable fan available - don't take your pyjamas! Only one bath towel per person, and no pool towel which would have been nice. House is on three floors, so if you don't like stairs without handrails this is not the villa for you.

    Planning to go back again next year to this beautiful villa. It's a magical place for a holiday.

    John says ‘Loved our stay’
    Loved our stay. The owner was very helpful in providing all the info we required before our stay. The villa is spacious, completely private, well appointed, and has some of the most special views we have ever seen. For a quiet, off the beaten track place to stay while near to all Tuscany has to offer, this place cannot be beat. It is ideal for large family or friend gatherings. Looking forward to returning soon.

  • Old Villa Close to the

    Cefalu: Villa
    3 BDR • 2 BA • Sleeps 8 • #205898
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    Ian says ‘Fabulous location in Lemon grove near the sea’
    Oasi delle Salinelle is a large well appointed Sicilian villa set in a very large garden full of lemon trees, olive trees and beautiful flowers.
    The outside space is fabulous with large shaded patio and an open first floor terrace that looks out over the lemon grove. The property is well appointed with large kitchen, lounge & dining area, 2 shower/toilet rooms, 2 cosy double bedrooms and a twin bedroom. Note no air conditioning. There is a secluded path leading directly to the sea shore not more that 5 minutes walk through the lemon groves and garden. The beach immediately accessed from the villa grounds is sandy and unspoilt where we could bathe and enjoy evening picnics. We were there at the start of June and the beach was pretty and fairly quiet, there are two small lidos on either side of the seashore at the back of the property but not intrusive. Nearby is a small restaurant and lido bar to relax and enjoy a cool drink and some pleasant food.
    The owner speaks English and is a wonderful, charming and warm host who went out of his way to make sure our stay was perfect .
    Note there are 2 or 3 other small cottages in the grounds but they were not near the villa and did not intrude on our privacy. The villa is located right on the small road leading to the quiet village of Salinelle so please expect some noise from passing traffic at various times in the day also being set in such lush vegetation you may want to prepare for mosquitoes, ants etc. as you wander through the grounds.
    There is a nearby train station so you can get into both Cefalu & Palermo without the hassle of taking a car into these popular and busy places if you want to. I would certainly recommend this villa to my friends!

  • Overlooking Montepulciano

    Montepulciano: Country style house
    3 BDR • 2 BA • Sleeps 6 • #204536
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    Martin says ‘A Dream of Tuscany’
    So what do you imagine when you think of Tuscany? Rolling hills with ancient walled towns, woodland, cypress trees, wild flowers, butterflies, vineyards, olive groves. This cottage has it all! The view across to Montepulciano is simply stunning. Montefollonico, a 13th century gem, is in walking distance and has great restaurants - 13 Gobbi is recommended. And you can get great take away pizza at Il Botteghino - a 10 minute drive. Close by are Pienza, Montalcino and Torrito di Sienna - all worth a visit. And don't forget to tour a winery.
    The cottage itself is lovely. Comfortable, full of character, simple but adequate kitchen (stone sink!), good showers and a lovely terrace for outside eating. Roe deer barking in the distance, nightjar churring in the meadow.
    We simply couldn't imagine a better place to chill out, kick back, and experience the Tuscan hills.

  • Visit 5 Terre and Relax in

    Casarza Ligure: Apartment in a villa
    1 BDR • 2 BA • Sleeps 4 • #235299
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    Natalie says ‘A view to die for!’
    This charming apartment clings to the hillside above Casarza Ligure offering spectacular views of the mountains and villages the region is famed for. The ever changing sky makes every day a different masterpiece to savour. The apartment has a large light living kitchen and dining room with two double doors to the terrace, which gives the same size living space outdoors. The bedrooms are cool and comfortable and the bathroom has modern fittings and plenty of hot water. The charming owner and his family live close enough to be helpful but not too close! There is a second sun bathing area with trees for shade which leads to a hot tub, with a view to die for. Parking is secure in the gated compound, shared with one other upstairs neighbour, who visits only occasionally. You need a car to get about these hilly treasures.
    Close by is the seaside resort of Sestri Levante, which boasts bars and restaurants alongside beach clubs and churches.
    I would recommend this villa without hesitation and will be going back!

  • A Unique Romantic Place in

    Venice: Canareggio: Apartment
    1 BDR • 2 BA • Sleeps 2 • #212617
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    Susan says ‘Wonderful Apartment in Venice.’
    The apartment is located in a 500 year old building that has plenty of charm, even while showing its age. The apartment, however, is updated and modern. This is a great apartment on a quiet cul-de-sac, and it is close to everything. It is very spacious, with a lot of natural light as it is located on the top floor. And there is a great view of the small canal and roof tops from the kitchen window. It is a little hike up the stairs, but there is a small lift attached to the steps that takes the luggage up to the apartment. The caretakers of the apartment meet you when you arrive and they handle getting the luggage up the stairs. The king sized bed is very comfortable, and the 2 bathrooms are large and in excellent condition. The air conditioners are quiet and work very well, and the wifi works perfectly. I would definitely recommend this apartment and will stay again when we return to Venice. If you don't speak Italian, I would recommend downloading Google translation on your phone or tablet - this enables you to better communicate with the caretakers - it is the ideal solution and they will also have it on their phone.

    Margaret says ‘Wonderful Week’
    We spent a wonderful week at this beautiful villa in the Italian countryside near Venice. Every day we explored nearby towns, ate at local restaurants, self catered, and also had a delicious meal cooked for us. The accommodation and gardens were beautiful. We were given advise on what to do in the area, but it was also great to enjoy our surroundings. I would definitely recommend this property and have been telling our friends about it.

    Jean says ‘Wonderful Vacation Spot.’
    This was an ideal villa for 7 of us on our two week stay in San Gimignano. The villa is very well equipped and located in beautiful grounds with wonderful views. The house is divided into two self-contained units which can sleep four each. It was an easy walk uphill to San Gimignano. The owners live on the property and were very friendly and accessible, providing lots of local knowledge, maps and guides.

    This is a beautifully renovated farm in the Casentino valley with amazing views in all directions. Our cottage was spotlessly clean and well furnished. The owners could not have been more accommodating. It was an excellent home base to tour Central and Eastern Tuscany.

    San Gimignano: Cottage
    1 BDR • 1 BA • Sleeps 4 • #201138
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    Christa says ‘Peaceful Tuscan Paradise.’
    Only minutes away from San Gimignano, this cottage was everything we hoped for. It was spacious, well equipped and the view was to die for. Every morning when we opened the shutters, looking out over vineyards and olive groves towards the Towers of San Gimignano we were in awe of the breathtaking landscape all around us. But it was not only the landscape that made our stay special, it was also the lovely, well kept grounds of this beautiful estate which made it so enjoyable. It was obvious that the owners took great care of their property. The attention to detail could be seen everywhere.

    I need to mention that I am mobility challenged and that even the 2 steps into the Cottage would have been very difficult for me. The owner immediately created a ramp so that I could enter the Cottage with my scooter. This was beyond the call of duty and much appreciated. Many thanks to the owners for their help and caring.

    This apartment is close to everything on both sides of the Arno. Lots of room in large bedrooms and living spaces. We were very warmly greeted and enthusiastically told about great local gelaterias and restaurants. Also highly recommended is the small gelateria in the square below.

    Our stay at the Gina unit was amazing. It's too bad we were there only a week. The unit was perfect with a view that we couldn't get enough of. We loved the vineyard and enjoyed walking the property. The fruit trees were nice and in season. The wine tour was great and the wine cave is stunning. We definitely would return on our next trip to Italy which can't be soon enough. Thank you so much!

    Di says ‘Loved Venice!’
    Had a wonderful stay in this property in August. First time to Venice and travelling alone. Guido was the consumate host, greeting me with some wine and cake before taking me on a mini tour of the local sites and imparting his extensive knowledge of Venice. The apartment was better than what i expected, great quiet locatiion, close to transport, comfortable, spacious with free wifi. I have travelled often and always stayed in hotels but not any more. I will book with owners direct from now on.
    Love Venice and I Venice loves you back. Cant wait for my next trip. Thanks
