Luxury Villas near Venice & the Lakes

My site is about Marche, Piedmont, Liguria and Sardinia but I felt it would be remiss not to include luxury villas and apartments in the other regions I love - namely Veneto and the Lake District.

My wife’s family is from the Veneto, while the Lake District is where we have enjoyed many summer weekends. These Italian regions offer exquisite scenery, rich history and a fabulous gourmet experience.

The homes I offer are not cheap, but they are all places that I have personally vetted. They are invariably of uncompromising quality, ideal for the independent minded person looking for a luxury holiday in Italy. Ideal too if you would like an occasion (wedding or such like) to be unforgettable.

If you are rather looking for five star hotel accommodation then I would suggest you visit my luxury hotels in Venice page where you will find my choice of the best hotels in Venice.
