The news today is full of a ‘school holiday rant’, which a guy posted to his friends on Facebook and has since gone viral. He complains about the general practice amongst holiday companies of raising prices outside of term-time, making it much more expensive for families. And of course this comes on top of the case of a Shropshire couple who were fined £1000 a few weeks ago for taking their children out of school during term-time.

Lots to do on-site at these family apartments on an organic farm near Volterra, Tuscany

 

Are you planning a family holiday to Italy in May half-term 2014?  We have a huge selection of self-catering villas and farmhouse apartments in Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio where the rental price remains the same throughout May, including half-term (24th – 31st May 2014). Not only that, but the whole of May is priced at LOW SEASON rates.  In other words, it’s cheaper to go on holiday in May than in June, July, August or September. And that includes May half-term week. Swimming pools, tennis courts, table-tennis, table football, volleyball, five-a-side football – our range of holiday houses has plenty to keep the children occupied all week long.

And it’s the same in October. LOW SEASON rates. No price increase for October half-term.

The above applies to everything in Brochure 1 on our website.

For advice and personal service, contact Gillian at One Stop Italy.

P.S. We offer a free tailor-made holiday search service

Not all holiday companies are alike …

A client gave us some great feedback about his holiday in one of our villas.  He writes:

“I wanted to send you a note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday at Il Piscino.

Our first villa holiday & I feel we may have been spoiled from the start!

Il Piscino is very well equipped and in huge grounds (which, although the description says that, the images give no hint of). It’s very quiet and restful and the pool is just superb, exactly what we wanted. All in all a very good week.”

The villa is located in the Orvieto area of Umbria.  It has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  One of the bedrooms has both a double bed and a bunk bed in it, so it can accommodate a family of up to 6 people comfortably.  As it is set in such spacious fenced grounds and has its own private swimming pool plus a 1km trail with benches (ideal for joggers and walkers), it would also suit a honeymoon couple who want peace and seclusion and their own space.

Update: Rental prices for 2012 start at Euro 790 per week.  More photos and details of Il Piscino here.

Very busy this week with last-minute enquiries for July/August 2010 and also taking bookings for 2011!  It helps that the £/Euro exchange rate is steadily improving. And we are offering some great discounts.

4 easy steps to help you find a last minute holiday in Italy.

Step 1: Tell us your dates and the size of your party.

Step 2: Tell us your budget, if you have one.

Step 3: If you need a swimming pool, does it have to be private or is shared OK?

Step 4: If you are looking for 2 weeks, would you consider a 2 centre holiday i.e. 1 week in one place and 1 week in another? (This is often the best solution for peak weeks when availability is limited).
