Enjoying a vacation rental in a Tuscany vineyard

  Wandering the hilly, narrow cobblestone streets in our home base of Montalcino, a medieval city of interlocking passageways, steps, and alleyways curving around and through and behind and beyond the main square, I reminded myself I was walking through history spanning eight hundred years. Stopping for lunch, I ordered a glass of the house wine. A bottle arrived at the table. When I protested, I was told to drink what I wanted and I would be charged accordingly. Not a bad system, I thought.…

Venice, Sicily & Clientan Coast cited in 'Using Astrology to Plan Travel this Holiday Season'

fshok.com Still vibrant and popular today, the five-thousand-year-old art of astrology can identify, say, business and romantic opportunities or challenges. And those celestial bodies slinking about the stars can also help pinpoint optimal times and places for travel. And since destinations have their own astro-charts -- which interact with yours -- astrology can even serve as a kind of spiritual travel agent. It can tell you, for example, about places likely to be harmonious or challenging…

Sicilian cannoli in '5 of the Best Baked Desserts from Around the World'

mat's eye If you were to imagine the best dessert or baked item in the world, then your favourite would likely be very different from your friends and family members. From childhood treats to family recipes, there are many foods that are personal to each individual and this is especially true when it comes to desserts. Sugary, sweet treats hold a lot of nostalgia for most people and often these bakes and desserts use influence from local flavours. A lot of these “desserts” are actually…

  • Italy for Honeymooners

    What is the fatal charm of Italy? What do we find there that can be found nowhere else? I believe it is a certain permission to be human, which other places, other countries, lost long ago." 
    ~Erica Jong


    Is there any place as romantic as Italy? For nearly two hundred years Italy has been the destination of choice for those who are looking to lend the gloss of sophistication to their persona. Between the mouth-watering food, painting-worthy vistas and a language so imbued with romance as to make your heart beat fast just listening to it, is it any wonder that Italy has become one of the top honeymoon destinations of all time? 

    If you have considered or are currently considering an Italian honeymoon you might want to consider look into these top Italian honeymoon destinations.

    Amalfi Coast

    The Amalfi coast is one of the most visually appealing areas on the planet. With breathtaking coastal resorts, pristine white beaches and a sultry Mediterranean temperature you won’t regret spending your first days together in such a gorgeous area.

    Here are two Barclay International Group villas which are actually large enough that you could bring family or friends along with you. All have kitchens, of course, for those romantic meals for two!

    Abelarda 
    Villa Il Gioiello

    abelarda.jpg



    and here are a few apartments within villas that will offer an unforgettable holiday:

    Villa Amore 
    Fior di Limone 


    vit-amore.jpg



    Venice

    It doesn’t matter which movie you watch, nearly every movie that mentions Venice marks it as being one of the most romantic places on earth. The reality is really not that much different. With food to die for, wines that will leave you slightly dizzy and architecture and art that combine to give you the glorious sense of being cast headlong into the past, especially when you hear the gondoliers calling to each other in the moonlight.

    Barclay International Group’s Venice apartments are extremely affordable! Take a look:

    Cannareggio 
    Garibaldi 
    Raffaele 


    garibaldi.jpg



    Rome

    From fantastic midnight espressos to architecture that will have you dreaming of millennia gone by, Rome has something for everyone. While Venice and Florence tend to be more “proper” as far as modern music and fashions, in Rome – anything goes and not only will you find the beauty of the past, but you’ll also find the modern lying cheek to cheek with the ancient in a heady and romantic mix.

    Barclay International Group has a wide selection of apartments in Rome which can be seen here.

    To select just a few:

    Cinque Colori 
    Residence Palazzo Al Velabro
    Emanuele 


    giubbonari.jpg



    Florence

    For those who are more drawn to the pastoral and artistic beauty of Italy, Florence is the perfect choice for a honeymoon. Here you will get all of the beauty of the Italian language, the deliciousness of the food and wine, but without the chaos that cities like Rome tend to include as part of their appeal and which might very well be more appealing to a couple looking to spend their first days together as husband and wife.

    Again, Barclay International Group has a huge selection of apartments in Florence, as seen here

    A few examples:
    Giorgio 
    Guelfo 
    Residence Palazzo Ricasoli 


    vit-guelfo.jpg



    Tuscany

    For sheer sensuous pleasure you need look no further than Tuscany. From fine art to fine wine to extraordinary scenery that encompasses mountain paths, rolling hills, seacoast and islands, there’s always something wonderful to gaze upon and explore. Aside from Florence, you’ll want to select from Siena, Pisa, Arezzo, Cortona, San Gimignano and Lucca. Any and all can be a perfect location for an absolutely stunning honeymoon. 

    Barclay International Group offers villas of many sizes in Tuscany but here are a few apartments in villas that lend themselves especially well to parties of two:

    La Poggiolaia 
    Pratale 1 & 2 
    Villa Il Pozzo 
    Li Zuti 


    LaPoggiolaia.jpg



    It doesn’t matter if you love to party or are an art connoisseur Italy has something for everyone and even the most diverse of couples will have no problem in finding a honeymoon destination that will provide them with the memories of a lifetime.

    We are currently updating rates for 2012. If 2011 rates appear, please call us and we will provide updated rates. Also call for more information on these or any other property. We are at 800-845-6636.
