The past year has kept many families and friendship groups at a distance. But the changing Covid climate of 2021 is bringing the hope of larger get-togethers – this year and into the next. And as we haven’t been able to venture abroad for some time, the thoughts of many are turning to overseas trips. So bringing these two factors together makes complete sense. Expansive, first-class self-catering accommodation in some of the world’s finest European destinations is the answer, offering travellers a renewed sense of excitement, along with the ability to meet multiple needs and provide abundant adventurous opportunities.

Home in Italy presents guests with a home from home. Guests have exclusive use of their property, along with maid service (five-star villa packages have a full complement of staff). Its large properties can comfortably accommodate bigger numbers, as well as providing the peace of mind that comes with a self-catering holiday; travellers can remove the Covid related worries of shared public spaces, buffet restaurants and busy resorts, by booking a private rental. Just you, and those you care most about. Time to catch up, relax and explore new shores once again – in the complete safety of your chosen bubble.
