“This is a great opportunity to surprise a loved one with the magic and romance of a villa vacation in Italy,” says Kit Burns, President of Doorways Ltd. For single couples, Burns recommends Villa Sorrentina- a romantic luxury cottage with its own private pool, complete with a hydro-massage area. Situated between Massa Lubrense and Sorrento, the cottage is perched on a cliff, with views overlooking Sorrento and the Amalfi coast. Villa Sorrentina has been recently renovated with new furnishings, but retains its charm and rustic feel with original stone walls and a terrace providing panoramic views of the island of Capri.
Groups of couples looking to double date Italian style will find several larger properties discounted as part of the villa vacation promotion. Among a host of luxury properties, Burns suggests Villa Marina- set among the Italian Riviera. “The area is a happy mix of glamour and natural beauty set against a backdrop of sparkling turquoise sea,” says Burns. Villa Marina offers tranquility with a private elevator that connects the harbor and a walking path that leads to the local lighthouse.
Destination weddings can also be booked under this limited villa vacation promotion. Burns recommends Villa Buonvisi as the ideal Italian destination wedding spot. The sixteenth century Tuscan villa is set in the tranquil town of Lucca, among 300 acres of vineyards, orchards and olive groves. Villa Buonvisi was recently listed as among the top “I Do” villas in Tuscany in Susan Van Allen’s new book, “100 Places In Italy Every Woman Should Go.” The Buonvisi Estate, accommodating a total of 22 guests, offers a unique frescoed bridal suite and complimentary pre-wedding cocktail party.
