If you’re considering a holiday in the Italian Lakes across 2013, then renting a self catering villa or apartment is an ideal option for those with children. It tends to be much more economical than a hotel, but, importantly, it also gives you far greater freedom. You will have your own space to sit in the evening once the children are in bed. You can also enjoy a healthy balance between home cooked food and meals out.
