Most Spectacular & Unique Villa Rentals in Italy

Home in Italy – Luxury Villa Rentals

After the latest round of lock downs, I’m sure like me, you are desperate to plan your next vacation. But somehow the idea of staying shoulder to shoulder with other tourists in a busy hotel is not quite as enticing an idea. Living with your own family and friends bubble however is much a much more promising proposition. With that in mind, villa rentals are the ideal way to get to your dream destination, but keep your distance from the rabble. And they’ve never been so popular.Finding the perfect villa is no mean feat, so here at Style Traveller HQ we’ve teamed up with uber-luxury villa rental connoisseurs, Home in Italy to compile a list of the most spectacular & unique villa rentals in our dream destination of Italy.

Authentic and unique, Morgana, Puglia

Morgana, Puglia

Perhaps one of my favourite properties is the 16th century Villa Morgana in Puglia. It’s rare to find such unique interiors in a rental property in any country.

From the hand painted fresco wall motifs to ecclesiastic decorative ceilings, each room is a work of art in its own right. You can wander around the properties private olive groves and hectares of vineyards.
