Are you one of those people who dream about the perfect holiday to Italy? The one that takes you away from your daily stressful life completely? When going on a holiday, the most important thing is the accommodation you choose. Some people automatically opt for a hotel, because hotels are a common accommodation for holidays. People are used to that.
Have you ever thought about renting an Italian villa or cottage?
And now you’re thinking: “But isn’t renting a villa less relaxing or more expensive?”
The answer to that question is: NO!
And here’s why:
For starters, let’s do an imagination exercise. Just as you dreamt of your trip, let’s imagine how the holiday is actually going to be.
Family of four, two adults and two children, renting a hotel room. Two double beds with just a little walking area left in the room, a small balcony and one bathroom. Does that sound like a relaxing holiday?
No? We agree! Hotels can be limiting, crowded and impersonal. Now imagine that you’re staying in an Italian villa with two, three bedrooms or even four bedrooms, a kitchen with everything you need, separate private bathrooms, large living areas, balconies and terraces. Doesn’t it sound better?
Now let’s take a closer look at this short list of things that you normally evaluate when choosing your vacation spot:
How do you imagine your holiday? Each day starts with a quiet breakfast, a relaxing swim… definitely not something you can get at a hotel where you have to put up with all of the people who want to take a swim or get breakfast or lunch at the same time.
Because you have more freedom: you can eat like a local by choosing delicious local meals, and just like a real foodie, eat them in the dining room, living area, at the side of the pool or anywhere else you like. You want to take a bubble bath and eat your favorite italian food while relaxing? You got it!
If you are meeting lots of friends on your trip, instead of renting a high number of rooms in a hotel, you can rent a villa and pay less per room. Now that you have some extra cash on hand, you can do whatever you want with it!
It’s also worth mentioning that young children have enough room to play safely.
You can even take your pet with you, if you wish!
If you feel like you don’t want to have lunch one day, you don’t, whereas in a hotel you have meals included and you pay for them anyway.
When in Italy… we’re all about experiencing the country as much as possible. Why let a gondolier show you around Venice, when you can take the pole and do it yourself? Why not experience the culture of Italy by wielding a gladiator sword in Rome and staying in a local Italian villa or cottage nested among the hills and vineyards? From the farmhouses in medieval Tuscany, to the cliff-side terraces of the Amalfi Coast where villa renters are treated like honorary residents – Italian Breaks will help you find the perfect place. If the genuine experience is for you, of course!
Enjoy your stay!
