My wife and I are looking at staying in a villa or boutique hotel somewhere in the area of either Florence, Rome, or Venice. We want to go around fall of 2010 possibly, and are looking to start making arrangements. Anyone have any suggestions as to their experiences in these areas and any reccomendations? We're not millionares, so anything cost-effective would be great.

Hi Wisconsin
Give me an idea about budget and what you think you want to do. Are you visiting all three cities? Do you want just one villa ( splurge) experience or three separate accommodations. HOw long ? When are you going? Early or late fall? Prices change accordingly. Have you been before? I know I canhelp but need more guidance.

I've been to Milan, but not the rest. Probably September-October. Prefer to stay in one place the whole time. 7-10 days.

Hi I am not sure what you really are looking for but here are a couple of suggestions for the Florence area. Will you have a car or are you planning to use the train? We had the pleasure of staying at Monsignore della Casa located about 16 miles north of Florence. They have 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and villas with their own pool on beautifully landscaped property. Take a look at their site. www.monsignore.com/country_resort_e.htm
It was not hard to get to Florence by car or train. About Start at about $1425 per week.

Then south of Florence is Villa Le Barone Equally as beautiful but more money About $2300 per week and it is only a room with breakfast but look at the site.

Now if you want your own villa (self contained) check out Parkervillas.com We found then reliable and properties were true to pictures.
