There are an incredible amount of accommodation options to choose from for your holiday in Italy. First of all, you need to decide whether you want to opt for hotel accommodation or instead plump for self catering.
Of course, there are pros and cons of each. However, there is a lot to be said for choosing self catering accommodation for your next Italy holiday.
First of all, self catering is often a much more economical choice, particularly if you are part of a family group or larger group of friends. It’s economical, both in terms of the cost per room but also from a point of view of being able to purchase, store and cook your own food supplies rather than always eating out. This is turn, has the added bonus that you are your own boss. As an example, you’re not restricted by hotel breakfast times and aren’t subject to strict hotel rules that need to be enforced. If you fancy a lie in one morning, you can have it safe in the knowledge that breakfast will still be on hand after a late start. And you can certainly do it safe in the knowledge that room service won’t be knocking on the door wanting to make up your bed!
For groups of family and friends, opting for a holiday rental will also mean you have your own private living areas and maybe even private outdoor space to relax in together. That living space is often much more characterful and homely as well – hotel rooms need to be functional but all too often this can leave them without soul and character.
You might well find that choosing self catering accommodation in Italy also allows you to better understand the local way of life. You might be lucky enough to meet your neighbours, and can certainly find plenty of opportunities to practice your language skills and absorb the culture in the local shops and markets when stocking up on groceries.
If you’ve decided that self catering is the best option for you, then I’m afraid that there are even more choices that follow! Self catering options can include a traditional agriturismo, a restored farmhouse, an apartment or private villa…. with so many decisions to make, it can be hard to decide what to choose!
