Italian Countryside (Outside of Tuscany) Home Rentals

posted in: Travel 0

If you're heading to Italy, one of the best ideas I can offer is to rent a home for part of the trip. If you're interested in exploring a couple destinations while there, renting a home off the beaten path would be an excellent way to unwind and recharge a little. For example, if you're interested in Rome and Milan, maybe a rental in the Lake Como region would be an option. If you want to stay on the coast, rent a home with amazing views and soak in the atmosphere. If you're traveling with a large party, where several groups want to see different sites, you can all head to different cities for the first part of the trip, and then meet up at a large rental to share experiences. There's so many ways to make it work.

Renting a house can be a little intimidating for some, but it's so common these days, it's almost like renting a hotel room. The huge plus is the ability to rent a gorgeous house for around the same price as a hotel.

Below I have a list of homes that I would recommend based on the amenities and location. For each home I have the nightly price for rental (based on the second week in July 2020.) Then, in the little charts, I break down how much the house comes out to per room. This lets you know that the huge price tags some rental homes come with, are really a bargain. For example, a six house that rents for $1000 a night. Sounds pricey right, but when you look at the cost per room of only $167, that's a steal! So for this example house, maybe you have 3 families going in on a house together, the cost per family would be $334 per night. It's like getting a penthouse suite for a fraction of the price.

So, with that, I hope you enjoy reviewing the homes below!
