Holiday Homes Italy – plan your dreamlike getaway
When we think of Italy, we think of images of the beautiful blue sea with an array of colourful houses perched on the shores alongside it, the country's long and fascinating history, its delicious cuisine, unique culture and of incredible, famous architectural works such as the Colosseum and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Whether it's a romantic city break or a week at the beach with the kids you're after, there will definitely be holiday villas in Italy which suit your tastes. Located in southern Europe, the Italian peninsula stretches out into the Mediterranean Sea, giving the country on average a good climate, although it is much colder in regions around the Alps (especially during the winter!), whereas areas along the coastline tend to experience much higher temperatures. Average temperatures in Sardinia, Sicily, Rome and Venice during the summer are in the early to mid twenties, when the warmest months are July and August. It is usually warmer in the south, for example in Cantabria, and slightly cooler in the north of the country.
