Post: How do I find a luxury property in Italy?


Italy, a country rich in history, culture and breathtaking scenery, attracts many visitors every year to enjoy its charms. For those looking for an even more exclusive experience, renting a luxury property is the ideal option. Here are 3 ways to find and rent a luxury property in Italy.

Use a real estate agency specializing in luxury properties

Many real estate agencies specialize in luxury property rentals, particularly in Italy. They can offer you a range of options tailored to your needs, with the advantage of local expertise. There are several advantages to working with an agency:

  • Their agents are familiar with the geographical areas you’re looking in. This can facilitate your search and help you identify the best opportunities;
  • agents generally have access to a large network of contacts. This increases the chances of finding properties that are not yet on the market;
  • agencies specializing in luxury rentals often set up specific services (chauffeur, butler, household staff) to meet their clients’ expectations.

Once you’ve found the ideal luxury property, it’s vital to fully understand the various clauses of the rental contract. Take the time you need to review each element of the contract. Don’t hesitate to ask for explanations if necessary.

It may also be a good idea to call on a professional (lawyer or notary) to help you read and sign the contract, to ensure that your interests are protected.

Selecting and preparing your luxury property for a successful rental

The choice of property is obviously important, but so is the range of services offered throughout your stay. So, on delivery and during the initial inspection of your villa or apartment, be sure to check that :

  • All the equipment advertised is present and in good working order (air conditioning, Wi-Fi, household appliances).
  • Outdoor facilities (pool, garden, terrace) are in perfect condition and ready for use.
  • A regular cleaning service is included in the rental price to ensure optimal property maintenance during your stay.

To complete your stay in a luxurious Italian residence, it may be worth considering additional options that will make your experience even more unique:

  • Request a personal chef to savor the local gastronomy without having to lift a finger.
  • Request an exclusive program (private tours, wine tastings) to discover the region in a different way.
  • Opt for in-home wellness services (massages, yoga) for optimum relaxation in your Italian haven.
