  • Great Apartment

    "This is a wonderful, large apartment in the heart of Florence. We walked everywhere from this central location. The apartment is in a building with an elevator - something that was appreciated after busy full days of sightseeing. It is very comfortable, with a large couch in the well lit living room. The kitchen was very nice, and very functional - including a toaster and an American style coffee maker. The bedroom was huge! Once the windows and shutters were closed, there was no sound or light from outside. The bed was so comfortable, I needed to struggle to get up in the morning! The bathroom was very nice and modern, with plenty of storage room. And above all else, the apartment was very clean. I know that we will want to stay here on our next visit to Florence."

  • Florence riverfront appartment

    "Our week at Christina's apartment during the Christmas holiday was fabulous! The apartment had everything we needed; supermarket and restaurants close by, easy walk into the historic city center or metro station and parking just outside the door. The park across the river was an easy walk and absolutely beautiful. We could have easily spent a month there if we didn't have to go back to work... Thank you Christina!"

  • Beatiful Navona.

    "Myself and my wife spent a week in Rome in February which was really enjoyable. This appartment is magnificent and its location on the Piazza Novona, perhahs the best Piazza in the world, is ideal. Location means you can walk all of the centre of Rome and have a great place to come home to. We love Rome and will be back and I hope we will get to stay here again. I spoke so well about this appartment that a good friend of mine is staying there now for a week. Paul."

Piedmont Travel Tips

Piedmont vacation Rentals are at the top of Italy’s ‘Boot’

The unusual shape of Italy is often referred to as a "boot." At the top of the boot, in the northwest, is the Piedmont region. Its capital is the renowned city of Turin. It is surrounded on three sides by the Alps, the Italian regions of Lombardy, Liguria, Aosta Valley, and France and Switzerland. To get to Piedmont vacation rentals, fly into the international airport at Rome and take an internal flight or train to the regional capital of Turin.

Possibly still one of the world’s best-kept secrets, the Piedmont region has everything that attracts visitors to Italy but without the crowds. People come here to see the world-renowned Shroud of Turin and stay because of the wealth of beauty, fabulous food, wonderful wines and so much more. Turin, or Torino as it is known here, is a lively city close to the borders with France and Switzerland. In fact, its proximity to the Alps is where the region gets is name, Piedmont, meaning "foot of the mountain."

Italian Food and Wine at Piedmont Villas

Some of most famous wines originating from Piedmont are Barbera, Barolo, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo, Grignolino and Asti Spumante. There are some wonderful rich reds and some glorious crisp whites and sparkling wines among the wines produced here. This region is also home to world-renowned Vermouth. In fact, it is how the name originated, from the producers, Martini & Rossi.

Food is an important part of Italian culture. Visitors to Piedmont villas will find a delightful array of ristorantis (restaurants). Ristorantis are formal restaurants and not the place to stop for a quick bite. They are usually more expensive and often family-run. For less formal dining where local specialties are found, try a trattoria or osteria. For a quick meal, a panineria is best; they are often good places for quick meals at any time of day. And, here, a pizzeria is not just about pizza!

Traditionally, the Italians do breakfast very differently. It often consists of an espresso (a small cup of strong coffee) or cappuccino (coffee with milk) and a sweet pastry called a brioche. Lunch, or pranzo, is often the main meal of the day and may consist of a starter (antipasto), followed by a primo piatto which will usually be a pasta, rice dish or soup. To finish the mean, Italians will have an espresso or maybe an amaro or grappa, both of which are strong digestive liqueurs. Cena is Italian for dinner and similar to lunch.

Historic Turin is Home to the Shroud

Visitors to a Piedmont accommodation will find the ancient capital of Turin to be a wonderful city. Its historic architecture, bridges and old-world squares are a treat for the eye. There are a wealth of museums, historic houses and interesting streets to explore. Famous as the home to the Shroud of Turin, this city has much to offer a visitor. Among the attractions of the region are the buildings of Royal House of Savoy, a beautiful series of buildings from the imposing Royal Palace in Turin, and many country houses and hunting lodges. Also, visitors will enjoy exploring the nine Sacri Monti or Sacred Mountains. These are a group of churches and other buildings dedicated to different aspects of Christianity. The buildings themselves are certainly impressive but what makes them unique is the setting. Each has been integrated into their surroundings of forests, hills and lakes. They are home to many significant art forms, such as wall paintings and statues.

Find Your Piedmont Accommodation in a Beautiful Region

Piedmont vacation rentals include a variety of accommodation choices, from 17th-century villas to farmhouses in the heart of the wine country. Visitors looking for all the modern conveniences of the 21st century in an historic villa will not be disappointed. Each home is stocked with everything you need to make a perfect base for all that exploring, and plenty of room for the souvenirs and gifts bought along the way. These houses are homes in every sense of the word, with all the little extra touches that make a nice house into a wonderful home. Some even come with transport!
