Villa Vendicari

My villa is available for rental and/or home swap exchange. In low season (winter) I will consider also house sitting requests

*My villa has been published several times on architecture reviews and glossy magazines, I don't think I can put the links here, but once you've booked I'll be eager to point you out to the right links

**I'm setting this up as sleeping 10 people there technically could sleep 2 more people in a tent that I provide in the tree house and if necessary two more beds could be added inside. There are 4 bedrooms and two living-rooms with two double sofa beds. There are 3 full bathrooms + 2 hot showers outside. Are you more than 8 people? Let's talk and see if this is suitable for you before you book ;)

Please take a look at the pictures and contact me I'll be eager to write you back. I marked an indicative price it can be as low as 500/week or as high as 4,000/week depending on a lot of factors such as the season, number of people and, most importantly, the exclusive use of the whole place or the use of just one of the two separated villas. The price you see should be right attending season and volume of travellers of the period, however we can talk and I will just send you a 'Special Offer' with the right price if we need to suit your budget and we can... I can't set just one price on a given night because that same night can cost half of the posted price if you go for the small villa (Junior link on airbnb here https://www.airbnb.it/rooms/16641911) only or double for the big villa (Senior link here https://www.airbnb.it/rooms/16670443) or triple if you want the exclusive on the whole place.

I have added two more listings one called Villa Vendicari Junior and the other Villa Vendicari Senior, if you want to rent only one of my villas and not the whole complex. See links above.

As a rule of thumb the price value works like this
1-Junior villa only, lowest possible
2-Senior villa only
3-Junior villa + exclusive (meaning no other family in the other villa)
4-Senior villa + exclusive
5- Whole place in use, meaning both villas and exclusive on the whole fenced property. Max value.

Want to know how much exactly? Contact me and I'll send you a 'special offer'.
