Travel in low season
July and August is the height of the summer season in Southern Italy and when most of our villas are booked. If however you’re not tied to school holidays, a villa holiday in May, June, September and October is a wise choice and here are 5 good reasons why:
Lower rental prices – rental prices in July and August are at their peak but off-season they are lower so you can save money by spending less on your rental or even rent somewhere larger.
Flexible arrival and departure dates – our bookings in July and August run from Saturday to Saturday but offseason, many owners are more flexible, giving you the option of extending your stay for a few more nights.
Cheaper flights – Flights are usually better-valued offseason, especially if they are not on set arrival/departure days, saving you money to spend on other things.
Warm weather but not too hot – July and August in southern Italy can be too hot for many visitors whereas in May, June, September and October it still feels like summer, the temperature is more bearable, the pools are still open, you can swim in the sea, sunbathe and dine outside.
Fewer tourists – as there is fewer visitors off-season, you may find that you have the beach, gallery or archaeological site to yourself which makes it a better experience.
