Short Term Rentals in Milan

Famous for its world-class fashion and food, as well as its thriving financial district, millions of tourists and businesspeople flock to Milan all year round. The city's wide selection of rented accommodation caters to the needs and budget of any visitor; from rustic Italian holiday homes to luxury penthouse apartments. Whilst rental properties in the city's historic heart of Centro Storico tend to charge higher rates, more affordable accommodation can be found in the trendy Città Stud neighbourhood or up-and-coming Baggio. HomeAway offers an impressive variety of self-catering apartments, villas and holiday lets located across all nine of Milan's boroughs available to rent for two week holidays or extended visits of three months and more.

  1. Short Term Rentals for Families

    The infinite number of things to see and do in Milan makes it a popular holiday destination for families, especially during the warmer summer months. Instead of opting for traditional hotel accommodation, families may prefer to browse HomeAway's selection of elegant holiday homes with private gardens, ultra-modern apartments and spacious villas. Short term rental rates often work out cheaper per night when compared with hotels or serviced apartments and the extra space and self-catering facilities suit families after a more independent holiday.

    Families staying in Milan on a more permanent basis are advised to look at self catering accommodation in the family-friendly neighbourhoods of Porta Romana, Porta Nuova and Rogoredo. Located slightly further out are the upmarket, well-connected towns of Monza and Brianza, which are especially popular with expat families for the abundance of open green spaces and recreational amenities.

  2. Short Term Rentals on a Budget

    As Italy’s financial and commercial hub, Milan is renowned for its steep cost of living. However, it is easy to find affordable rental rates if you know where to look. HomeAway features properties in several neighbourhoods which are undergoing gentrification, such as Parco delle Cave and Ponte Lambro. Whilst students in Milan may find Città Studi too pricey due to its proximity to university campuses, they are encouraged to check out nearby Porta Venezia. Such areas boast excellent transport links and a selection of reasonably priced apartments and villas for those on a budget.

    The time of year also greatly affects the cost of short term rentals in Milan. Visitors will find that rent prices jump around public holidays such as Easter and Christmas, in addition to the school summer holidays, so those on a budget are advised to book their trips at off-peak times.

  3. Luxury Short Term Rentals

    As is the case with most European cities, most of Milan’s premium rental property can be found clustered around its historic heart. The obvious location in which to secure a luxury holiday rental is Milan’s Centro Storico; its quintessentially Italian piazzas, basilicas and al fresco restaurants encapsulating the cultural essence of the city. However, it is also worth checking out the chic neighbourhood of Porta Romana and the exclusive gated communities located in Arese.

    Couples after a truly indulgent stay can check out HomeAway’s selection of opulent holiday homes, whilst executives in the city on business for a month or two are encouraged to browse the array of elite apartments equipped with all the latest mod-cons. Large families and groups of friends are also catered for, with sprawling Italian villas boasting private gardens and swimming pools located in Milan’s affluent suburbs available to rent all year round.

  4. Short Term Rentals for Business

    As Italy’s economic capital, Milan is teeming with expats working in the city on a short-term basis. With its shimmering skyscrapers juxtaposed against traditional Italian architecture, Porta Nuova or “The New Gate” is the city’s main business district and therefore the first choice for accommodation. The area boasts several premier apartment blocks offering unparalleled views across Milan and must-have amenities such as fast Wi-Fi internet and underground city parking. Other alternatives include basic studio apartments in well-connected neighbourhoods such as Ticinese and Vigentino, complete with self-catering and laundry services for a seamless ‘home away from home’ experience.

  5. Alternative Short Term Rentals

    Aside from the short term rental market, Milan is jam-packed with alternative accommodation solutions sure to suit any visitor. The most conventional of these is obviously serviced hotel accommodation, with the city host to some of the world’s most exclusive luxury brands such as the Four Seasons Milan and the Park Hyatt. Other more affordable options include renting a spare room as part of a house share or browsing the city’s numerous bed and breakfasts.

    Milan’s hostels are mostly popular with young, international backpackers and often have lively, sociable atmospheres. Located just a few steps from the iconic duomo, Ostello Bello is one of the city’s best loved hostels and features free Wi-Fi and a traditional Italian restaurant onsite.
