  • Very nice apartment with a great location

    "My wife and I stayed 3 nights here before going to Tuscany. It was a spacious apartment with a large sitting room (or extra sleep room) and a nice sized bedroom. The kitchen had all the necessary conveniences. It was quiet and secure (Carabinieri station just around the corner). I loved that I could walk around the corner to the Bar Roma Libera and get a cappuccino and panino in the morning. Carmela also was helpful in recommending two very good restaurants. She also arranged for transportation to and from airport which for us with two large suitcases was worth the extra money. It was a great base for seeing Rome. Just pick which bridge you want to cross to explore a different set of famous spots."

  • 1 week summer holiday with teenagers

    "Casa Bosco has rustic charm - accommodation is spacious and the house was equipped with everything we required. The garden offered a flat grass area to play football on , and a decking area as a pleasant place in which to sit and relax but it's only a short walk into the busy town of Chiavari . Although there are beaches locally and along the coast too, we weren't able to find a good sandy beach - at the time we visited all were very crowded and the vast majority are sectioned off by hotels who charge for access to a sun bed . The small strips of public beach were in our experience poorly maintained. However if you are looking for more than a beach holiday there are plenty of places to visit in the area & Chiavari itself is much more than a tourist town - you feel you are seeing the real Liguria . Jennifer was extremely welcoming, kind and helpful - it was good to have her on hand to answer any questions about the house or area and she dealt with a Wifi problem quickly and efficiently ."

  • Perfectly located cute apartment in a great area.

    "My wife and I recently stayed at this cute place in Milan on our honeymoon. Everything was exactly as the owner (Danny) had said. The apartment was actually bigger than we imagined and it was perfect for us. The apartment was very clean, very safe, had a nice kitchen and bathroom. Danny was a wonderful (away) host and was easily available to answer all our questions and make sure we had everything we needed. He even offered us access to his wines and many other products that were in the kitchen that were great for us to prepare some meals. This was our first time to not stay in a hotel and we were very pleased with everything. The communication, attention to details, location, and professionalism was as good or better than any expensive hotel. We were able to walk to most places in a short time and when we called for a cab they were there before we could get down the stairs! I would suggest to anyone traveling to Milan to stay at this place. It's easy, quiet, and you feel like part of the city rather than a tourist. And many, many thanks to Danny who treated us with such kindness and courtesy. And to the people of Milan who welcomed us and showed us their wonderful city."

Umbria Travel Tips

The Green Heart of Italy--Umbria

Famous for its wonderful wines and sumptuous olives, Umbria Italy villas are perfect choices for visitors wanting to explore the real Italy. Located next to its more famous neighbor of Tuscany, this landlocked region boasts so many ancient towns and cities that it is impossible to describe each one. The weather ranges from mild winters to warm dry summers.

Getting into the Heart of Italy is Well Worth the Effort

To get to Umbria, fly to Rome and choose either the high-speed railway or rent a car to fully explore this historic area. Airlines such as Al Italia and Delta provide flights from most U.S. international airports to Rome. Another option is to fly to London and then to Perugia in Umbria. The main towns of Umbria include the regional capital, Perugia and Assisi, Citta di Castello, Bastia Umbria, Terni, Gubbio, and Foligno. These towns and many others possess a unique charm and character all its own. You'll find even more unique character in Umbria Italy vacation rentals.

From Buzzing with Life to Peace and Tranquility

Visitors to Umbria Italy vacation rentals will discover a beautiful region--an unspoiled jewel dating from medieval days. With so much on offer, visitors may wonder where to start. A good place may be at Assisi, at the Basilica de San Francesco. This monument to St. Francis is one of Italy’s most famous Renaissance churches. The views over the valley below and mountain backdrop make this a "not to be missed" part of any trip.

In Gubbio, with lovely pink houses with terracotta roofs, visitors discover a determinedly medieval city which prides itself on its history. The regional capital of Perugia is a buzzing town with wonderful restaurants and nightlife. While here, visitors may want to explore Lake Trasimeno for a swim, windsurfing or some sailing.

This region is steeped in history. When planning a sightseeing trip, visitors should consider the Rocca Maggiore castle, the Church of San Pierto, dedicated to Saint Benedict, dating back to the 10th century. The Palazzo dei Priori (Priori Palace) is a medieval palace that is a must-see.

When planning a trip here, allocate some culture time and take in some of the variety of museums. With so many, no matter where your chosen Umbria Italy villa is located, you are bound to find several close by. The National Gallery at Perugia includes several famous masterpieces and the National Archaeological Museum of Umbria is another not to be overlooked. For more up-to-date culture, try the Gallery of Contemporary Art at Spoleto or the Civic Museum at Gubbio to see the famous Eugubine tables, seven bronze plates dating from the 2nd century BC.

Do not be fooled into thinking these beautiful, historic towns and villages have nothing to offer after the darkness falls. Whether it is romantic dining al fresco by candlelight in a medieval square followed by a quiet stroll through ancient streets or dancing the night away, you will find it here. Theater-lovers will enjoy discovering the Communal Theater Todio, the Lyric Theater, Sant Eufemia, or one of the large selection of theaters around the area.

Shop till You Drop near Umbria Italy Accommodations

Two major local products in the region are excellent wine and scrumptious chocolate. For wine, why not buy direct from the Tenuta Poggio el Lupo Winery, near Orvieto? For chocolate-lovers, head to historic Perugia lodging. If you are planning a trip in October, the "Euro-Chocolate" festival will be a chocoholic's dream! For mementos and gifts, explore the many markets. In Spoleto, the monthly market provides great gifts or the Bastia, Piazza Mazzini market sells everything from Italian ceramics to wonderful antique jewelry.

Why Choose an Umbria Italy Villa

The freedom afforded by renting a home rather than being tied to the restrictions of hotels provides travelers the space to relax after a wonderful day of sightseeing, shopping, and exploring the region. These villas come equipped with everything necessary to make a comfortable and home-like environment and the opportunity to live an Italian lifestyle for your vacation. What more could anyone want?
