    Make a Holiday Rental Apartment in Meran, Italy, Your Home Away From Home

    The immensely picturesque spa town of Meran (or Merano as it is known in Italian), can be found in the South Tyrol region of Italy. It is literally just a stone’s throw across the border with the country of Austria, which lies just to the north of the town. Your holidays in Meran will be spent in a basin that is quite literally surrounded by awe-inspiring mountains which are known to peak as high as 3,335m in this part of the Alps. In turn, the positioning of the town is responsible for some unusually milder temperatures for this part of Europe. There are no end of activities to get involved in during your time in the area and this really doesn’t matter what time of the year you decide to visit. Self catering accommodation in Meran will prove to be a popular and comfortable choice whenever you choose to visit the area.
