Villas are luxurious country residences, usually on the larger size. In Roman times, only the elite or very upper-class citizens lived in villas but after the fall of the Roman Empire, they took on a different function. They became small farming compounds, or even monasteries sometimes, if the ownership of the villa was transferred to the church. Nowadays, villas have taken on a glamorous and often romantic feel, usually set in locations with phenomenal views and beautiful surroundings that take one’s breath away. Villas can be found from the most remote of paradises to the middle of urban settings and are ideal for a vacation that’s both luxurious and connected with nature. So take a look and see what catches your eye. We're sure you'll find something you love.
