If you’re looking for holiday rentals in Italy, you need to make sure you’re careful so you don’t end up renting something – sight unseen – and find out when you arrive that it’s in horrible condition, dirty, or has a host of other problems for you to deal with while you’re trying to relax and enjoy your holiday. You basically have two ways to find somewhere to stay when you’re in Italy.  

Do Everything Yourself

This means investigating both hotels and rental units. If you plan on staying in Italy a month or longer, getting an apartment can save you quite a bit of money compared to staying in a hotel. However, you’re going to have to spend quite a bit of time looking around at all the different short term lease options available, which can vary dramatically depending on where you want to stay in the country.

If you’re going to be doing it yourself, here’s some advice.

  • Make Calls – While looking at website pictures and reading online reviews and listings can give you a good idea about different rental properties in Italy, to get your questions answered you’re going to want to pick up the phone and make the call to ask whoever is handling the renting process.

  • Spend the Time – If you want to increase your chances of getting a holiday rental you’re going to enjoy staying at, you should be prepared to put in the time necessary to find something that fits you perfectly. You only have so many options, but don’t rush through the process of choosing where you’re going to be living for a month or more.

Get Help from a Professional

Your other option – and some would say the better one – is to get help from someone who has booked holiday rentals in Italy many times before. By using their experience, you can avoid problems before they happen and be able to better enjoy the time you spend in the Italian countryside or inside one of the cities. Finding an apartment to rent for the short term can be time consuming. A better idea – for many – is to let someone handle all the paperwork and planning so that you can just concentrate on relaxing and having fun.

Your Holiday in Italy

So, what should you do? A holiday company to book accommodation within Italy will provide a range of different options for travelers. This is probably the best course of action if you want to make sure you rent a safe property that’s in good repair, is clean, and has everything you need to enjoy your holiday. Asking a professional for help is one of the best ways to avoid the stress and headaches of trying to research and plan everything on your own.
