Italy is a Mediterranean country situated in the south of Europe and has for years been a very popular self catering holiday rental destination with families. The north of the country shares its border with France, Switzerland and Austria. The summer months are generally hot and dry and the south of Italy can get very hot in the middle of the summer. You can rent Italy villas in most parts of this beautiful country and most have their own private swimming pools which are great to cool off in during the intense heat of the summer. If you are coming on a romantic break you should visit Venice and stay in holiday apartments in Italy and use them as a base to explore this beautiful city.
To the north of Italy lies the Lombardy Italian Lakes which is often referred to as the Lake District of Italy and is made up of stunning landscapes and scenery. Here you can find Italy villas to rent in Manerba, Tre Capitelli and Manerba Del Garda and you can spend your days swimming in one of the lakes, learn how to sail or go for walks around the lakes admiring the peaceful and beautiful surroundings. Liguria sits just below to the west and sits on the coast and if you are looking for coastal villas in Italy you may consider renting a beach villa in Loano.
Further south again is Tuscany and Florence and it is said that this region is one of the prettiest in Italy and here there are many fabulous luxury holiday villas in Italy with swimming pools. When you come here with your family or friends and stay in holiday rental homes you are going to experience a holiday full of charm and culture. Be sure to explore the towns of Florence, Forte dei Marmi and Lucca or perhaps stay in large villas in Italy in Vinci and Monte San Savino. When you come to Tuscany, Italy, you will discover a country full of fine art, a rich historical background, superb food and of course many different local wines. You may well want to split your visit up to Tuscany and Florence and also rent holiday villas in Italy in San Gimignano, Camaiore or Massarosa.
Umbria lies to the east of Tuscany and it is in the middle of Italy. The area is full of mountains and rugged countryside with many forests and rivers. Here you will find villa holidays in Italy set in the countryside that offer you the chance to sample the traditional way of life of this area. The scenery is magnificent and you can get a true flavour of the region by booking Umbria villas in Umbertide and Tuoro Sul Trasimeno.
Campania is further south by the sea and is a great place to visit to explore the ancient ruins of the Greeks and Romans. There are also several coastal resorts where you can stay in coastal villas in Italy. Probably the most famous are Sorrento, Amalfi and Massa Lubrense with a range of luxury villas by the sea that offer dramatic views across the coast with many perched right up on the cliff edges with the sea right below.

To the south east is Puglia and yet again there are many great value holiday rental villas in Italy here and if you can wait till the last minute to book you will find some great deals on cheap villas in Ceglie Messapica and Vieste.
Just off the coast of Italy are the islands of Sardinia and Sicily.

Over on the island of Sardinia you are also able to stay in an Italian villa rental in San Teodoro, Costa Paradiso and Porto Cervo. This is definitely the place to come and get away from all of the hassles of modern day life and experience a relaxing villa holiday in Italy in a rural location.
