There is a big difference between the different seasons in Italy, so your holiday experience will depend on the season of your trip. It is also clear that prices are highest in July – August, when most people travel to Italy.


Our holiday homes and villas are generally divided into 3 seasons:

High season is usually from the 4th week of June to and including the 3rd week of August (approx. week 25 – approx. week 35).

Mid-season Easter, May, the rest of June, September and the last week of August.

Low season all other periods

Some homes work with 4 seasons, where the 4th season is between high and mid season. Look under the individual holiday home and find the relevant season.

Almost all country houses and villas are rented from Saturday to Saturday. Arrival is typically after siesta (around 4pm), and departure on Saturday morning. In mid- and low season, the country houses can be flexible with regard to the day of arrival, so please inquire about the options. Some country houses have flexible arrival days, and if you can’t find them in the date search, contact us with your wishes at


The weather when you travel to Italy

Our destinations in Italy have generally seen mild, humid winters and hot, rain-poor summers. Normally our season in Tuscany and Umbria starts around Easter and continues until the autumn holidays in October. The seasons in Sicily and Liguria are longer; in Sicily there is a mild and pleasant travel climate all year round, and in Liguria the “high season” for hiking in the Cinque Terre is March/April and September/October. Golf enthusiasts also benefit from the mild climate in Italy and  golf trips to Italy in the pre and post season are a hit.
