On HomeAway you will have little trouble tracking down a great place to stay with our range of villas in Italy. Italy has epoch-defining culture and heritage, sumptuous cuisine, beautiful rural landscapes, and a sandy coastline that is never far away. Whether you have your eyes on a luxury apartment in Venice, close to the sights, or a quaint stone holiday cottage in Umbria, you will find it easy to browse our selection of holiday rentals in Italy. You can also choose bespoke facilities and comforts to make your stay even smoother. It might be an internet connection, an outdoor barbecue for summer evenings or even the option to be able to bring your pet; you can specify your needs and find the villa that matches up with them.

Things to do in Italy

  • Culture in Italy – Italy is a cradle of Western civilisation, there’s an incredible variety of interesting places to visit and things to experience; with more UNESCO World Heritage Sites here than any other country. From Florence’s prestigious museums to the numerous Roman and Ancient Greek archaeological sites and countless parish churches boasting Renaissance masterpieces, Italy almost has too much heritage to list.
  • Food and drink in Italy - Italian cuisine hardly needs introduction and nothing beats experiencing it first-hand in Italy. What’s striking is how much it can change from town to town, with a wealth of revered local specialities. Still, there are classic ever-presents, like pizza, gelato, risotto, tiramisu and several varieties of pasta. Italian wine is also renowned, with Chianti from Tuscany being particularly famous. We have an extensive range of villas in Tuscany, so if wine is your thing, then be sure to have a look through the accommodation that we offer here.
  • Beaches in Italy - 246 of Italy’s beaches have achieved Blue Flag status for their cleanliness and facilities. They are well distributed across the peninsula and islands, from Apulia to Liguria and Sicily to Sardinia. The variety is impressive, from rocky coves on the Ionian sea to the vast sweeping beaches by the Tyrrhenian to traditional fishing villages and modern resorts, packed with activities.
  • Outdoor recreation in Italy - Often recognised by its undulating hills, Italy’s rural landscapes are something to behold, and offer the perfect backdrop for walks, horseback riding and bike rides. In the north you’ll encounter spectacular lakes and mountain resorts. There are also 24 national parks in Italy, covering five percent of the country’s total area.
  • Sightseeing - Italian cities are home to some of the world’s most famous sights. You’ve got the Colosseum in Rome, the leaning tower of Pisa, the unmistakeable cathedral complex in Florence and St Mark’s Square in Venice, to name but four. Natural sights include Vesuvius near Naples and the mythical island of Stromboli, off Sicily.

Weather in Italy

Italy has a number of different climate systems, due to the varied topography and distance from far north to far south. In much of the Alpine north there’s a humid subtropical climate, which means relatively high precipitation, warm summers and cool winters. On the highest ground here winters can be severe, with lows dropping to below -10 and consistent snowfall. If you visit one of our Italian villas on the coast you’ll experience a Mediterranean climate, bringing long, warm and dry summers when temperatures reach the high-20s or more, with mild winters. A little way inland from the coast, in most regions, winters and summers are a little cooler due to high ground.

Travelling to Italy

Whether you’re travelling domestically by road or rail, you will find Italy’s transport network to be reliable and well-developed and it will be easy to find whichever of our holiday rentals in Italy you have chosen as your base. There’s a high-speed railway linking most of the larger urban centres north of Naples and Turin, Rome, Milan, Naples, Catania and Genoa all have metro systems. Ferry travel is common between the mainland and islands of Sardinia, Sicily and Capri. If you’re heading to your Italy holiday home from abroad, the entire peninsula and its islands are well-served by international airports, with the main gateways to the country being Rome and Milan. Low-cost airlines offer routes from the UK to every recognised tourism destination.

Non abbiamo potuto sfruttare al meglio le due terrazze, era il periodo più freddo dell'anno, ma nonostante ciò, facendo capolino, non abbiamo rinunciato alla vista mozzafiato. L'appartamento è ben pulito, tenuto bene e attrezzatissimo. Costantemente riscaldato non abbiamo sofferto il freddo in nessun giorno della nostra permanenza. Le scale? Salire le scale fa bene alla salute e quindi abbiamo unito l'utile al salutare. Grazie ai preziosi consigli del signor Giovanni siamo riusciti a sopperire ad ogni nostra piccola defaillance. Sicuramente, quando torneremo a Firenze, fisseremo le date del nostro soggiorno in base alla disponibilità dell'appartamento. Grazie ancora signor Giovanni e, sicuramente, a presto.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

It is about a 30 minute drive from Olbia airport and is relatively easy to find (Homeaway provided detailed driving instructions) although at the end of our journey, it took a few minutes to realise that having turned into Via degli Argonauti, you come to a junction where you turn left for about 15 metres and then Via degli Argonauti continues on the right. Having turned right, about 10 metres on the left, you will see the gate of the little community of properties in which the villa is situated. We eventually arrived at about 8 pm and as instructed we phoned the housekeeper who opened the gate and showed us to our property. (Note that the housekeeper only speaks Italian so it helps to speak a little Italian). The villa was clean, spacious and well-appointed and the swimming pool was just great (it is big enough to swim in rather than just paddle about !). There is a shaded area on the terrace and a large table so you can eat outside if you wish. There are two small supermarkets within 5 minutes walking distance and we recommend the fresh fruit and vegetables both sell. There is also a very good restaurant within 10 minutes walking distance which we recommend. You can walk to the beaches to the North East although it helped to have Google Maps on my phone ! (By the way, there is excellent 3G/4G Mobile service in the area and good and reliable WiFi in the villa). We spent one day touring and the roads were very quiet (certainly compared to the UK) so this made driving a very pleasant experience. Sardinia has some spectacular scenery so we would advise at least one day touring. Massimo (who speaks English) was extremely helpful with all our queries both beforehand and while we were there and he clearly takes care to ensure his clients have as good a holiday as possible. In summary, if you are looking for a relaxing break with your own private swimming pool in a quiet area, we would definitely recommend the Villa Allesandra.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

There is plenty of investigation for nature lovers as well as nice restaurants and a few little shops. We didn't expect the apartment to look even more beautiful than in the pictures - Italian style interior with oil paintings, stained glass windows and nice furniture. All the necessary sundries inside the apartment were carefully thought of. We enjoyed spending evenings in wonderful garden terrace. The hosts were helpful and nice and the price very reasonable. We will be definitely returning to this place next year.
