The holiday season: stressful, magical and filled with love … and anxiety. This year, gather the entire family and escape on a vacation with a Christmas in Italy. Our villas offer enough space for the entire family to reunite and share the special season without the need for extra work in an already busy time of year.
Close to tourist destinations but secluded and private, you’ll find so many ways to make new Christmas memories and keep family traditions in these amazing vacation homes.
Here are five villas perfect for a Christmas family gathering in Tuscany and Umbria:
Villa Fontesanta is perched on a hill in Tuscany, just outside of Florence. With enough space for up to 20 guests, this gorgeous property offers all of the charm of a traditional Florentine farmhouse as well as all of the modern amenities needed to keep everyone happy.
Imagine opening gifts in front of a roaring fire in the stone fireplace, or gathering with loved ones to cook the holiday meal in a gourmet kitchen. It will be a family reunion no one will ever forget!
Villa le Favole is actually two stone country houses on one property near the beautiful village of Montepulciano. With jacuzzi bath tubs, spa-like showers and fireplaces in several of the bedrooms, everyone will spend their Christmas holidays relaxed, comfy and cozy.
A recent renovation of the two buildings was completed with the utmost care in regard to using original materials and artisan pieces. The peacefulness of the village and the awe-inspiring panoramic views are sure to delight.
Care to incorporate some history into your holiday in Italy? Spend Christmas with your family in a medieval castle still owned by descendants of the Bonaparte family! In the middle of a large park, this fortress has been converted into a luxury villa.
Castello dei Bonaparte has enough room for 30 guests in two buildings connected by a covered walkway. Furnished with antique furniture, this castle maintains much of its original architecture, including a dining hall fit for emperors – or a very special Christmas dinner.
If a fresh air, country Christmas is your family’s style; Villa di Montesoli will delight all members. From a snooker room and sauna in the old stables to a covered outdoor eating area with a wood burning stove, there is something for everyone in this luxury villa.
Sweet dreams of Christmas goodies will be abundant under the exposed beam ceilings and brick porticos throughout the farmhouse. Panoramic views and natural light are abundant.
Elegant and charming, you’ll feel like the royal family that built Colle a Pitiana in Tuscany. Updated furnishings mix in with ancient stonewalls, providing the perfect location for an intimate family reunion. In addition to spaces big enough to hold everyone, small libraries, levels of gardens and beautiful bedrooms offer plenty of private space, too.
Originally a defence tower, the villa is situated on the side of a hill overlooking the Arno Valley. The property is close to preserved space, perfect for morning walks and group outings in the crisp winter air.
Forget cleaning the house and figuring out where to put all your guests this Christmas. Let Ville in Italia help you find the perfect destination for you and your family this holiday season.
Get back to the meaning of the season and enjoy the warmth of your loved ones on an Italian Christmas getaway, but make reservations quickly – these charming homes are being booked up rapidly!
