Bryn Mawr, PA (PressExposure) January 17, 2012 -- Doorways Ltd., a firm that specializes in Italian villa rentals announces a new opportunity for those who previously thought an Italian villa vacation was out of their reach. From January 12 through February 1, Doorways will offer a ten percent discount on 100 of its top Italian villas throughout Umbria, Tuscany and Lake Como. This promotion, combined with the recent decline of the Euro opens the door of opportunity for those who have been dreaming of an Italian vacation. The value of the Euro has declined over 18 percent from its height of trading for the U.S. dollar exchange rate of 1.58 in 2008.
"The past few years have been a challenge for those on a budget, who have caught the European travel bug. Our hope is that this promotion, coupled with the recent decline of the Euro, will open doors for those who have been dreaming of an Italian villa vacation," says Kit Burns, President of Doorways Ltd.
For first-time renters, Burns recommends Villa Grazia. The 17th century Italian villa can accommodate anywhere from two to twelve guests, depending on which section of the property is rented. Villa Grazia is a luxury farmhouse set among extensive gardens and a large swimming pool. Buildings once used for olive oil production have been exquisitely converted into a residence, with two large apartments and a charming cottage. Amenities include satellite TV, fans, telephone, stereo, guest safe, Jacuzzi showers and tubs, dishwashers, washing machines and wireless internet access. "It's the perfect solution for everyone from couples to larger families, looking to bond under the tranquility of Tuscan living," says Burns.
More experienced Italian villa renters may find this is the perfect opportunity to upgrade to a luxury villa. Among a host of luxury properties, a recent favorite has been Villa D'Oro, Julia Roberts' choice of stay during the filming of Eat Pray Love. Guests take refuge on Villa' D'Oro's beautiful estate with an infinity pool overlooking the Italian countryside, an outdoor shower and the amenities of a luxury five star hotel. Villa D'Oro provides an authentic Italian experience, without sacrificing luxurious amenities. Guests fine beautiful antiques but also high speed Internet.
