CIT Italy Villas & Experiences

Ever dreamt of staying in a villa in Italy? Imagine staying in a traditional trulli in Puglia, an Italian city apartment or rustic farmhouse somewhere in Tuscany or Umbria. 
From decadent, fully serviced luxury villas to rural agriturismo farm stays, we offer an amazing selection of self catering villa and apartment stays across Italy, perfect for families and friends and every type of Italian dream holiday imaginable.

Live the dream...in Italy!

Why stay in an Italian Villa or Apartment?

  • Be part of the Italian lifestyle. Blend in with the locals, get lost in the Italian countryside and discover remarkable cultural treasures around every corner.
  • A home away from home. Unpack your suitcases, create a home base to explore your surrounds...and relax. A completely different experience to staying in a hotel.
  • Live like a local and enjoy the comforts of your own private accommodation. Shop at local markets, try out your Italian with the locals, cook a great meal in your own self-contained, fully equipped kitchen. Or sit on your terrace with an aperitif or glass of wine, enjoy the al fresco experience and soak in the sunshine by the pool.
  • Save by doing it yourself. Staying in a villa saves you money on group accommodation and meal costs because you can cook up your own Italian feast with local produce and ingredients.
  • Time and freedom to enjoy. Rent a car and have complete flexibility and freedom to explore in your own time - go on easy day trips, visit local restaurants and discover the region as you like. Many smaller villages and hill towns are not accessible by public transport so a villa and car deal is the way to go!
  • Family and group friendly. Travelling in a group or with children is much easier and more relaxing in your own villa or apartment accommodation.
