  • Best way to experience Florence & Tuscany

    "We stayed at Villa Calcinaia and the lower (gorgeous) with a very large group. Additional friends rented the home that sleeps four also on the grounds of Piazzele Michelangelo. Over the course of two weeks we had a total of 14 people in and out of three apartments and a house--a lot for any experienced property owner to manage. Everything was great!! This property is an IDEAL location if you want to truly see Florence and greater Tuscany. We spent a total of five days touring Florence (off and on), took the train (a 10 minute walk downhill) to Pisa (very easy to make this trip from the villa), enjoyed a day at the beach in Viareggio, went to Vinci, Lucca, took a drive into France and Monaco, and did a biking tour/wine tasting through the Chianti Classico region. Other people in our party did either day trips or overnight trips to Rome and Venice. I have a bad back and always worry about mattresses. I had NO ISSUES WHATSOEVER with my back and hips, etc. (I need to ask Paola where I can get one of her mattresses!). Paola, our wonderful owner and hostess, is extremely helpful. She can arrange for taxi services, tours, etc. She graciously drove us to the grocery store and a few other places."

  • Beyond Expectations!!!

    "We are a couple who came to Rome for a week, we really loved our stay in this house. It's the perfect location to stay in Rome (walking distance to Vatican!!!), the area is pretty safe and quite but still with shops (you have a bio shop just down the road:))), nice restaurants ect... When we arrived, we were greeted by Daniele, a very approachable and friendly person that took time to explain to us all we had to know about the apartment and the surroundings. The flat was lovely, comfortable and had all we needed (even a bath with hydromassage), very spacious (2 big rooms 1 with shower and toilet and a huge living room with plasma tv), the internet worked really well and sky tv with lots of English channels. If we come back to Rome, we will definitely come in here, we really felt home away from home. Ines & Cris"

  • Wonderful week in Cetona!

    "When I first stood in the doorway of this beautiful house in Cetona, I had to pinch myself. Finally I was actually standing in this amazing place I'd been looking at in pictures for months. Marco's place is absolutely beautiful. The style and design is perfect in every detail, the architectural renovation was carried out splendidly, and you really do have your very own cave at the back of the side sitting room. Marco was so helpful and responsive, from the beginning of my inquiries to the last day when I emailed to ask directions to the nearest gas station for our departure. His daughter met us in Rome to give us the keys and detailed directions, and all of our interactions with both her and Marco have been friendly and helpful. We stayed for a week in Cetona, a wonderful small town with its centuries of history and modern life centered around the main square, the Piazza Garibaldi. We chose this house in part because of the convenience and charm of being able to walk to shops and restaurants, and we especially enjoyed interacting with the kind and friendly people who live there. In a minute we could walk to a wonderful bakery, a deli, a wine shop, a green grocer, other shops, and a larger grocery store up on the main road. We enjoyed delicious meals at the two excellent restaurants just steps from the house, the Ristorante da Nilo and the Osteria del Merlo. Cafe Sport, between the two restaurants, serves up delicious gelato, coffees, and wine by the glass. Cetona is also a great jumping off place to visit the Tuscan hill towns and thermal mineral baths (hot springs). We drove to Siena, Pienza, Montepulciano, and Chianciano, and the Fonteverde spa in San Casciano during our stay. I only wish we'd had more time here, as Umbria is right next door and we never did venture there, nor did we fully explore the small towns scattered around the countryside. We would definitely stay here again, in a heartbeat, and we'd recommend this place to anyone looking to step off the wheel and breathe in the beauty of rural Tuscany for a while. I totally agree with the previous reviewer who stated that you can have expectations as high as you can imagine, and that you will exceed them here. Thanks for everything, Marco, we hope to be your guests again someday! Sonja and Doug"

  • Wonderful apartment in the heart of Rome

    "It was a real pleasure for us (two couples) to stay in this wonderful apartment. Paolo was a perfect host. He answered every e-mail request very quickly, arranged all necessary details in advanced and welcomed us at the apartment on time. Additionally, he gave us a thoroughly guidance through the apartment and provided us with touristy and culinary recommendations (make sure to check out at least some of the recommended restaurants and bars - both in the immediate neighborhood and in the inner city - they are all excellent). The apartment was exactly as the images suggest. Both bedrooms and the living room were huge, everything was clean and nicely decorated and - best of all - there's this amazing roof terrace to your exclusive use. I would solely take this apartment for this roof terrace. We had breakfast and dinner there while enjoying and amazing view over the city (with the Colosseum, St. Peter's Basilica and Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II in the center of your view). Especially at night, having a glass of wine and admiring the beautiful lights of the city is way better than spending your time in a crowded bar in the city). Furthermore, the apartment is perfectly located in the center of Rome, only 5 minutes from the Colosseum. You can easily walk all major sights and in our five-days stay we only took the metro (which is not far away) only once to the Vatican. The neighborhood is very nice with a bakery and a mini-market just across the street and fantastic restaurants and tratorias in walking distance. The only negative thing was that Paolo told us on our first day that we can have the apartment to our own on our last day and that we don't have to check out in the morning. But at 10 am they wanted to start cleaning the apartment. We arranged that they come back at 11 am and that we can leave our luggage until we leave, so this was no major problem. I would definitely recommend this apartment and Paolo as a host!!"

Campania Travel Tips

Come to Campania for a Real Italian Experience

If you are planning a vacation to Italy, you should definitely consider Campania. Campania, Italy is known for its beautiful landscapes, pleasant year-round spring-like climate, rich textures and colors, and so much more. Time spent in Campania, Italy villas allow you the opportunity to enjoy nature, art and culture, archaeology, and authentic Italian cuisine. It has been a prime destination for centuries, starting with the ancient Romans who loved this region immensely. Once you arrive, you will know exactly why.

The Culture is Inescapable

The history of Campania reaches far back to the 9th century B.C. with the founding of Partenope. During the age of the Roman Empire, the rich would visit the region to enjoy its thermal spas. Traces of these spas remain today, despite the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. which devastated the ancient towns of Herculaneum and Pompeii. Centuries later, we still learn from archaeological digs uncovering monuments, temples, and everyday homes. These ancient towns are open for tours and learning experiences alike. To get a real taste of the art and culture of Campania, you absolutely must visit Naples. It is a lively, friendly city full of theater, museums, and monuments. The adorable pen-air cafes and plenty of shopping don't hurt either!

The Food and Drink

Booking Campania, Italy accommodations simply means that you will not only have a wonderful vacation but a gastronomical adventure. Thinking of the food of Campania, you cannot avoid the thought of pizza. Around the 19th century, a Neapolitan cook invented the dish which would later become a worldwide favorite. You can only get “real” pizza right in Campania so do not delay! The pizza is indescribably good, consisting of San Marzano tomatoes and fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese. Of course, aside from the pizza, the seafood is to die for with fresh mussels from along the coast. And do not forget the locally made Limoncello di Sorrento, a lemon-based liqueur, delicious on its own or with dessert.

Arriving in Campania, Italy

Unfortunately, there are no direct flights into Campania, Italy but there are more than enough inbound flights to the surrounding areas. The Almalfi Coast Airport, also known as the Salerno Airport, is about an hour and a half away by car. Naples International Airport, about an hour and 45 minutes, is another option, with the most direct inbound flights from major hub airports including JFK, Dublin, and London Heathrow. Arriving by train is another possibility but the rail can be quite slow. If you do decide to take the train, your best bet is to arrive in Naples or Salerno then transfer to a bus that goes into town.

Getting Around Campania

Do not worry. If you are nervous about driving in another country, you do not have to during your stay in Campania, Italy vacation rentals! The public transportation system offers a unified ticket system known as Campania Unico. This means that tickets are categorized into zones and with just one ticket, you can travel within one or more zones. There is a maximum time limit for the ticket and the zones radiate out from Napoli which means travel is made easy. The system includes buses and national trains but not ferries. Just be sure to ask the agent when purchasing your tickets if you have any questions.

Things to see and Do

Because of the rich cultural history and beautiful setting, Campania has plenty to offer. While staying right in town is just fine and will fill your days with the local markets and eateries, day trips are a perfect way to explore the area. For one, the Statue of Liberty in Central Naples is a must-see! Another big lure of the Campania region is the ocean. The Amalfi coast is like no other, peppered with mountainside towns that seemingly tumble into the sea. Spend the day visiting Ischia, Capri or even Procida as well.

Do not Miss the History

Italy is filled with ancient cities, especially the areas surrounding Campania. One in particular, Calitri, should be at the top of your list. Located in the center of Italy, it lies between the ruins of Pompeii and the Amalfi coast. On your way to the ancient village, you will see aristocratic palazzos, castles, and historical sites.
