After the hectic festive season, we think that craving a bit of a peace and calm – and summer sun – is a perfectly normal thing to do.
However, we understand just how difficult it can be to find the perfect villa for your holiday; so we’ve curated a handful of villas in Italy which are ideal for couples looking for a romantic break in Italy this year.
We think this is the perfect villa in Italy for a romantic break. Based in the heart of Spello but enjoying picture-postcard views of the Umbrian countryside, it offers the perfect balance between peace and quiet but within easy access of bars and restaurants. The private walled garden and terrace is the perfect spot to relax in during the day, whilst inside the decor and attention to detail is impressive.
