accommodation, typically in betifully restored buildings with
gardens, typical of the area. These places are intended for 1
or 2 week holidays for those wanting to simply 'get away' and
relax or to explore a particular area of Italy. With this in
mind, whether the location is countryside, mountain, seaside
or lakeside, we have selected only those places where during
the summer months, you have the possibility to swim on your doorstep
- this may be a pool within the grounds, a beach just footsteps
away or the crystal clear waters of a mountain lake or river.
These are in most cases, accommodation only holidays. Places
to stay can be just about anywhere so you would almost certainly
need a car, whether your own or hired locally.
by-TRAIN: fly to the recommended airport and
take a train to the place you will be staying for your short
break. Airport transfer times are generally less than 1h30 by
train. Almost all FLY-TRAIN breaks can be enjoyed as a FLY-DRIVE
break, but in general convenient and cheaper by train.
SELF-DRIVE: fly to the recommended airport, hire
a car, and drive to the place you will be staying for your short
break. Airport transfer times are generally less than 45 minutes
WE-MEETU holidays: fly to the recommended airport
where we will meet you on your arrival at the nearest airport
or mainline railway station, and take you to your hotel either
by car or mini-bus.
All places to stay are selected according to the folloing
criteria: Comfortable journey times from the main regional
cities and airports - Countryside, seaside, island, lake and
mountain locations - Charming places to tay on a B&B or
s/c basis - Highly recommended places where we would personally
be happy to spend a whole week in, or longer.
