Do the holidays have you wishing for an exotic vacation in 2023? Maybe one where you can take your extended family and maybe even some besties? Or, maybe there’s a special occasion coming up where you want to invite a lot of people.

Yes, there is a vacation rental service that lets you do that!

Just imagine soaking up the sun and the sights near the Adriatic Sea in a village where you and your guests are the only people around. And say “ciao” to Petritoli, Italy!

  • boutiques
  • vineyards
  • theaters
  • community squares
  • gardens/parks
  • bars/wineries
  • restaurants
  • two swimming pools
  • supermarkets and more

And, if you have a special occasion in mind, then Petritoli has a castle where everyone can experience a taste of royal life. You can hold collective meals in its halls or house up to 90 guests at one time.
