Italy

Holiday cottages in Italy provide the perfect opportunity to relax, explore and enjoy a slice of “La Dolce Vita”. The fact that Italy offers such a taste of the sweet life should come as no surprise. After all, there are few other holiday destinations that present such a welcome mix of warm climate, fantastic cuisine, fascinating heritage and stunning scenery, so it’s hardly surprising to find that many of our customers return to Italian cottages year after year.

Rome was famously not built in a day, so we’d suggest a holiday cottage in the region if you want to make the most of your time there! Alongside its iconic attractions – the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Forum, Vatican and more – you’ll find something of interest on every street of Italy’s wonderful capital city. It’s also been said that it’s impossible to have a bad meal in Rome. This is something that our previous holidays – not to mention our waistlines – can attest to. If you fancy exploring the birthplace of Italy’s celebrated culture then we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a holiday cottage in Florence. Birthplace of the Rennaissance, and home to one of the world’s most famous Davids, it’s a region filled with fascinating history and unrivalled beauty. Venice’s network of alleys and waterways has been delighting visitors for years, and it still offers one of the definitive Italian holiday experiences. If you fancy something a little more tranquil then Italy’s rural landscape offers patchwork hills, sparkling blue waters and golden sands aplenty. Tuscany may be one of its most celebrated destinations, but neighbouring Umbria is equally attractive with great food and drink, a fascinating history and a wonderfully relaxed pace of life. Italy’s south offers plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind in the sun. Explore Sicily and enjoy a beautifully diverse array of attractions within a stunning landscape that offers some of Italy’s finest beaches. Capri and the Amalfi coast also offer some of the best beach locations to make the most of your time on your Italian holiday.

With so many activities, and such a diverse landscape, Italy is a fantastic holiday playground with a wealth of options for all ages. Uncovering the country’s history, culture and heritage is one of the most popular ways to enjoy your time there, but if you’d prefer to relax by the pool then we’re sure you’ll be equally satisfied. Beach breaks are equally popular for those with Italian holiday cottages and the country boasts some of the most spectacular shoreline you could wish for. Basically, however you choose to spend your time in Italy you’re guaranteed a wonderfully memorable holiday.
