A luxury villa holiday in Italy is an invitation to sample the finest Europe has to offer, and - importantly - to do so at your own leisure, ideally with a gelato in hand. Should you wish to sample the local wine, you can do so by setting yourself down at an old oak table in a rustic farmhouse in the heart of Tuscany or Umbria and bask in the pastoral beauty of the surrounding olive groves. If your passion is architecture, then the ancient wonders of Rome and Florence's monuments to the Renaissance will provide endless inspiration, as will the splendid trulli houses of Puglia. Lovers of skiing and winter sports can delight in the wonderful pistes on offer in the iconic spruce-topped peaks of the Dolomites and beyond. Should you wish to merely stretch out on the soft sand and let the gentle waves of the Tyrrhenian Sea sing you a lullaby, there are countless paradisiacal beaches stretching around Sardinia.
Kids too will love a trip to Italy. Whether they're discovering ancient wonders and living out their gladiator dreams in Rome, eating pizza and other mouth-watering dishes until they explode or taking joy in the unusual trulli houses of Puglia and leaning tower fo Pisa, they are sure to return home eager to tell their friends about their perfect holiday in Italy.
A luxury holiday in Italy will leave you spoilt for choice for unmissable things to do and see!
Foodies, too, are spoilt for choice the country over, with a vast number of dishes, both regional and national, celebrating Italy's abundance of delicious natural produce. Whether you're enjoying a glass of Vernaccia and looking out over the surrounding fields dotted with cypress trees, rows of vines and olive groves from your luxury villa in the beautiful village of San Gimignano or sampling the day's catch in a restaurant of one of the many picturesque villages that crescent the fishing harbours of the Amalfi coast, Italy's famous gastronomy is sure to have your tastebuds dancing.
While the food is uniformly fantastic, what impresses most about Italy is the sheer diversity of it. Beyond the obvious touchstones of pasta and pizza, Italy enjoys many specialities that are best enjoyed in their home regions. The cuisine of northern Italy's lake district, for example, is heavily influenced by the nearby alpine region and features heartier, stews, polenta-based dishes and rich, creamy cheeses, like fontina. Whereas, the gastronomy from the south of Italy is marked by a prevalence of olive oil, fish and fresh vegetables (notably tomato), lending it a lighter, fresher feel. Wherever you find yourself in Italy, the joy of tasting this celebrated cuisine in-situ is second-to-none.
