Whether you are a first time villa renter, or have rented before, we highly suggest you read the
information under this heading to give you information that will enable you to make the decision if
renting is for you. Just click on the subtitles to your left for helpful information about how to
choose your rental home (important glossary of terms), What to expect when renting a villa vacation
home, frequently asked questions from our clients, travel tips that we hope you find helpful, the
average temperatures in all regions of Italy and a currency exchange rate calculator.
Renting a villa has notable differences from a hotel. You'll obviously have more room, including
a kitchen which allows you enjoy the local markets alongside Italians shopping for the freshest
ingredients and return home to create a relaxing dinner with family and friends. Breakfast can be
had in your robe and slippers, gatherings around the fireplace or terrace at the end of the day with
a glass of wine, and lots of room to stretch out and relax.
While many villas offer maid service, just as many do not; however, we can arrange this at most
villas for an additional charge. These self catering homes most likely leave you independent, only on
the rare occasion will you have concierge service. Amenities will vary from villa to villa; cable TV
may only have Italian channels. Air conditioning and phones, something we take for granted, are not
always available in your rental villa. We list all amenities on the property's description page.
If you don't see it listed, it is not included in the house. If there is something you require when
renting, just let us know and we will be happy to offer some suggested accommodations.
