Destination guide

Rent a Naples holiday let

Poolside villas and palm-fringed mansions that shoulder above the Mexican Gulf are all in the mix when it comes to Naples holiday lettings. They straddle the sparkling beaches of West Florida, and one of the most stylish and chic resort towns on the coast of the Sunshine State. Coming here is all about topping up the tan then, come evening, strutting your stuff down glitzy boulevards. It's about shopping along well-to-do 5th Avenue and treading on sugar-white sands as the sky-blue waves roll in. What's not to love?
