Wouldn’t it be fantastic to book your villa holiday this year and then plan your trip around visiting local markets, reconnecting with family and friends over a meal as you graze the fresh and flavoursome dishes? Open a bottle of Chianti, explore the countryside and really live ‘La Dolce Vita’ (the sweet life). Whether you chose your own rented villa, a house or apartment in Tuscany, the Lake District, Sicily or anywhere else in Italy, House of Travel can make this dream come true. Villa Accommodation: Tuscany: Spend the week in your own restored Tuscan barn, set on the hills surrounding the town of San Gimignano which is just a short 3km away. Choose to relax by the pool or explore the glorious sun drenched countryside. Make sure you climb one of the towers in San Gimi to get some great scenic shots and after enjoy a gelato from one of the local gelato bars. Lake Como: Breakfast on the terrace overlooking Lake Como is a pretty fantastic way to start your day! On the lakes edge, this apartment is central and just a few steps to restaurants, supermarkets, bars, public transport and cafes. Jump on the ferry for a day trip to Bellagio, passing the grandest homes on the lake - or pop next door to Switzerland for a visit! Puglia: In an untouched rural area of Western Salento, close to the tip of the ‘heel’ of the Italian boot, you’ll be overlooking the nearby lonian coastline. This villa is ideal for al fresco dining, the terrace has a dining area and there is an inviting pool to cool off or lounge beside. The sandy beaches are down the hill and the charming summer resort of Gallipoli is only a short drive away for a great evening out. Amalfi Coast: This villa is near the peaceful Atrani and its sandy beach. The views and scenery in this area are stunning. There’s no need to have a car with this villa as its easier to use the local transport. Head to nearby Ravello to sample the superb local cuisine and to try the limoncello - look out for the terraces of lemon trees along the way! > Click here for our HOT Italy deals > Check out our cheap flights to the UK and Europe here!
