Although Italy is known for its inimitable style, delicious food, and incredible wines, it's also known for its boisterous spirit. Italians are warm, talkative, and expressive. They live with gusto! From the Dolomiti Mountains to Agrigento, and from bustling, cosmopolitan Rome to the canals of Venice, you will find an enthusiastic welcome, a treasure trove of artistic riches, and incomparable beauty. History buffs will delight in Italy's diverse ethnic background, shaped by Etruscan, Greek, and Roman colonization. Wherever you may travel and in whatever season, Italy will enchant you with its gastronomic delicacies, art and music, and incredible landscapes and architecture. The best way to experience the tremendous beauty and culture of Italy is to rent your own Italian villa or apartment for your family or friends. You'll have a home base from which to explore the surrounding area, while such amenties as a swimming pool, enchanting views, and storied pasts will make your stays at your Italian villa as memorable as the many new places you discover.

Abruzzo  -  [ Matches:  1 Villas and Apartments]

Our Most Popular Villas In Abruzzo

Amalfi Sorrento Peninsula  -  [ Matches:  109 Villas and Apartments]

The Sorrento Peninsula is located in Southern Italy and forms the Southern side of the Gulf of Naples. The peninsula is named after its main town, Sorrento, which is located on the North coast. On the South is the Amalfi Coast. The island of Capri lies close to the tip of the peninsula in the West. The whole area is an important tourist destination and offers many sights and activities to visitors. If you are looking for a deluxe villa in Sorrento or an Amalfi Coast villa for your family vacation view our Italian vacation villas in the Sorrento Peninsula.

Campania  -  [ Matches:  111 Villas and Apartments]

This southern region includes the densely populated capital of Napoli, the gorgeous stretch of the Sorrento and Amalfi Coasts, and the islands of Ischia and Capri. It also includes Mount Vesuvius and the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Caserta, home of the splendid Bourbon palace Reggia di Caserta (or Palazzo Reale), lies northwest of Napoli. During your stay in one of our Italian vacation villas you'll enjoy the cuisine of Campania which highlights all types of seafood and locally grown produce such as lemons, tomatoes, and peppers. In the summer, you'll almost always find insalata caprese, a delicious salad of sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, and olive oil. Campania's other specialty is limoncello, a delicate, lemon-infused digestivo that is served ice cold. Throughout the region you'll find an impressive number of excellent eateries, from casual, down-home trattorie to upscale restaurants. If you are looking for a private Amalfi Coast villa or an apartment for your family vacation, or a villa with swimming pool for your romantic honeymoon, view our Amalfi Coast Villas in Campania

Florence City  -  [ Matches:  82 Villas and Apartments]

A city of many layers, Florence is at once an over-run tourist magnet and a living, breathing medieval city that is home to proud Florentines. Stomping ground of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Dante, and Machiavelli, its cultural importance can't be overstated. It is home to three of the world's most renowned museums: the Uffizi, L'Accademia, and the Bargello, and boasts an incredible number of important churches, which house equally important master works. Sights such as the Ponte Vecchio, the Boboli Gardens, the Pitti Palace, and Giotto's duomo are but a few of the city's many offerings. A walker's city, the center of Florence is a compact labyrinth of alleys and piazze. Comfortable shoes are a must! Rent your own Florence apartment in the historic center to explore the myriad shops, museums and charming restaurants. You will return from your busy day to the quiet and calm of your own apartment where a refreshing glass of wine will help you relive the adventures of your day. View a listing of apartment rentals in Florence, Italy.

Lazio  -  [ Matches:  80 Villas and Apartments]

The heart of the Roman Empire, Lazio, or Latium, is a region of volcanic lakes, mountains, vineyards, and olive orchards. Rome is its cultural center, boasting more antiquity than arguably any other city in the world---not to mention inimitable style and verve. As an alternative to the region's famously crowded beach resorts, the countryside lakes of Bolsena, Albano, and Bracciano offer peaceful respite from the hustle bustle of Rome. For archaeology aficionados, Lazio has plenty to offer: excavations such as Cerveteri and Tarquinia provide a window into ancient Roman civilization. While in Lazio, sample the venerable spaghetti alla carbonara, a regional dish. A stateside plate of spaghetti with meat sauce will never look, or taste, the same again. Explore our Villas in Lazio, Italy.

Liguria  -  [ Matches:  24 Villas and Apartments]

For our purposes, this region encompasses the Riviera dei Fiori (San Remo), the Riviera Levante (Portofino, Rapallo, Santa Margherita, Genoa), and the southern Ligurian coast (Cinque Terre). Considered the Las Vegas of Italy, San Remo has absorbed some of nearby Monaco's casino flair. Nonetheless, it's worth a visit, particularly during January's Festival della Canzone Italiana, when professional musicians come to perform the latest in Italian music. It's a major televised event all over Italy. Genoa, the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, is a stop over destination and not the place to spend any time. Head, instead, to Portofino or Rapallo, small coastal towns west of Genoa. They're lovely, ritzy spots known for attracting the jet set. Santa Margherita is situated between Rapallo and Portofino; it's a convenient base from which to explore both areas. Cinque Terre is an isolated collection of five small fishing villages linked by rail and hiking trails. Boasting incredible natural beauty and a low-key vibe, it's a fantastic destination any time of the year. View our Italian villas in Liguria.

Lombardy  -  [ Matches:  47 Villas and Apartments]

Located at the foot of the Swiss Alps, Lake Como and Lake Maggiore are the jewels of Lombardy. Surrounded by quaint towns such as Como, Varenna, Tremezzo, and Bellagio and lined with patrician villas, the lakes offer countless opportunities for exploration. While a trip by steamboat is an ideal way to take in the views, there are many hiking trails that afford even more panoramic vistas. In the unlikely event that you tire of blue sky and blue water, the noisy commercial center of Milan is nearby, as are Mantova, Brescia, and Cremona. Lombardy is known for its incredible cheese: bel paese, gorgonzola, mascarpone, and taleggio are but a sampling of the region's delights. Other wonderful specialties include bresaola, minestrone, polenta, and risotto. View our Private Villas in Lombardy, Italy

Marche  -  [ Matches:  8 Villas and Apartments]

Situated between the Appenine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea, Le Marche remains relatively undiscovered. From our private villas here you can still find deserted beaches and peaceful hill towns---even in summer. Ancona, the region's largest port city, is a convenient point of departure for Greece, Turkey, or the former Yugoslavia. While neither Ancona nor Pesaro are worth a touristic stop, nearby Urbino should be your first destination in the region. It is the jewel of Le Marche, and one of Italy's most beautiful walled hill towns. The Palazzo Ducale, completed in 1482, is particularly stunning. The town of Macerata is also not to be missed. It, too, is a lovely hill town that remains off the beaten tourist track. Hikers staying in our private villa rentals should be sure to visit the Monti Sibbilini, a particularly breathtaking range in the Appenines; Amandola is a good base for mountain exploration. Rimini, both resort and Renaissance town, is worth a mini detour if you can ignore the throngs of teenagers. It's best to avoid this coastal hotspot in high season, particularly August. Explore our Villas in Marche, Italy

Piemonte  -  [ Matches:  13 Villas and Apartments]

As its name suggests, Piemonte is nestled at the foot of the Alps. Bordering France to the west and Switzerland to the north, it has long been a destination for skiers and mountaineers. Torino, home of FIAT, is the region's industrial capital. In the countryside, there are quaint mountain villages, rolling hills, and fertile farmland. Piedmont produces some of Italy's greatest wines. The region's wine districts include notable names such as Barbaresco, Barolo, Canelli, Cavour, Monferrato, Roero, and Acqui Terme. The historic center of Asti, with its medieval architecture and long history of invasion, is a fascinating destination for those enjoying our nearby private villa rentals. Acqui Terme is also not to be missed. Here, you can relax in hot springs and view historic architecture. The countryside that surrounds Asti is filled with interesting sites and opportunities for outdoor adventure, including the citadels of Visone and Cremolino and the Orba and Erro River valleys. View our Villas in Piemonte, Italy

Rome City  -  [ Matches:  67 Villas and Apartments]

Rome is not for the faint-at-heart: It's a boisterous city of 2,900,000 that overflows with more history, art, and culture than arguably any other city in the world. Coexisting seamlessly with the modern beat of daily Roman life are classical, early Christian, Baroque, Romanesque, Renaissance, Rococo, and post-Unification relics. Each of the city's neighborhoods, from Trastevere to E.U.R., has it's own distinct flavor and rhythm. While enjoying a Rome apartment rental, you will discover Rome's dizzying array of sights, which includes such historic heavyweights as the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and the Roman Forum, are enough to occupy even the most zealous traveler for months.

Sardinia  -  [ Matches:  6 Villas and Apartments]

Boasting some of Europe's most spectacular coastline, Sardinia is the ultimate destination for sun seekers and those who prize the clear, blue waters of the Mediterranean. It's also a wild, exotic land that bears little resemblance to the rest of Italy. Perhaps its most famous (and beautiful) spot is the Costa Smeralda, a stretch of coastline that is dotted with chic towns such as Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo. Looking for adventure in paradise? The island's mountainous interior offers incredible hiking opportunities; there are prehistoric rock villages, canyons, oak forests, and mountain sheep. Begin exploring our Villas in Sardinia, Italy

Sicily  -  [ Matches:  25 Villas and Apartments]

Mild and sunny all year long, the island of Sicily has a long and complex history of invasion and conquer. Pre-unification, it was alternately under Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Norman, Aragonese, Austrian, and Spanish rule. It's precisely this colorful past that makes Sicily so fascinating: the Greek temples of Agrigento and Selinunte are some of the best preserved in the world. The Sicilian cuisine remains heavily influenced by Arab culinary traditions. The ideal destination for sun worshipers and archaeology buffs alike, Sicily offers clear, blue water, incredible ruins, and a taste of Italy that is perhaps warmer, friendlier, and spicier than what you find in the north. Taormina, Cefalu', and Piazza Armerina are some of the island's best spots. Gelato lovers take note: The ice cream in Sicily is widely regarded as the best in Italy.

Tuscany  -  [ Matches:  602 Villas and Apartments]

A hilly region rich in agriculture, Tuscany was the home of the Etruscan civilization, and later the birthplace of the Renaissance. It's known for charming, historic towns like Siena, Arezzo, Cortona, Lucca, San Gimignano, and Volterra. A destination for gourmands, the wine of Tuscany's Chianti region is famous around the globe. Extra virgin Tuscan olive oil, a staple in regional cuisine, is also highly prized. Tuscany's capital, Florence is a great art center whose centro storico remains closely linked to its medieval past, in spite of tourist crowds. The region's Tyrrhenian coast is famous for its white sand beaches and pine forests. Come August, Florentines depart en masse for spots such as Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi, and the island of Elba. A Tuscany villa rental is the ideal way to experience the region as it provides a comfortable base from which to explore while also providing the perfect place to rejoice and share after a day of adventures. Explore our wide selection of Tuscany Holiday Apartments and Villas.

Umbria  -  [ Matches:  52 Villas and Apartments]

Known as the Green Heart of Italy, Umbria is best characterized by verdant rolling hills, fields of yellow sunflowers, the smoky flavor of truffles, and the tang of sheep's milk cheese. It is both refined and wild. A land of Etruscan and medieval origins, Umbria is steeped in spirituality: the hill town of Assisi, birthplace of St. Francis, is considered the center of the Franciscan monastic movement. Perugia, Umbria's capital, hosts a world famous jazz festival, while Gubbio puts on its very own annual pagan celebration. Spoleto, Orvieto, and Urbino are also gems of the region. Perugia's Buitoni produces thirteen percent of Italy's pasta. It's no surprise, then, that the pasta in this region is delectable, especially the umbricelli, a specialty of Northern Umbria. Perugia's other delicacies include bruschetta, farro soup, pork dishes, wild pigeon, and squab. As for truffles, dogs or pigs sniff out these precious mushrooms in the area around Norcia and Spoleto. The cuisine of Southern Umbria highlights the subtle combination of truffles, olive oil, cheese, and homemade pasta. The white wine of Orvieto is the region's most famous. View our Italy Villas in Umbria

Veneto  -  [ Matches:  20 Villas and Apartments]

The Veneto truly caters to all travelers' tastes. There are mountains (the Dolomites), lakes (Lake Garda), beaches (the Adriatic), and monumental cultural centers (Venice, Verona, Vicenza, and Padova.) The region offers an extraordinary range of scenery and remains one of the richest in Italy. Although the canals of Venice steal the show, the nightly summertime operas in Verona's Roman forum are beyond compare. To the northeast lies the Friuli region---home of some of the world's finest white wines, and historic towns such as Udine and Trieste. Discover our Villas in Veneto, Italy

Venice City  -  [ Matches:  13 Villas and Apartments]

Inspired by the Greek and Arab cities of the early Middle Ages, Venice is built on 118 islands. It is a bewitching maze of alleys, bridges, canals, and piazze. Long a cultural center, the Venetian school bred high renaissance masters such as Titian and Tintoretto; the city's art collection is rivaled only by that of Florence. Piazza San Marco is perhaps one of the finest medieval squares in Europe. The dialect of Venice is without comparison and is virtually undecipherable to the uninitiated: for example, rio' means "canal", while rio' terra means "filled-in canal". Spring's renowned Carnevale is celebrated in distinctive masquerade and commemorated with theatrical spectacles. The Biennale, the world's most famous contemporary art show, draws an urbane, international crowd to Venice every other year.
