Live Like a Local

More and more travelers are discovering the rewards of villa travel – the opportunity to savor the local lifestyle. A BeautifulPlaces villa vacation is about rest, relaxation, and enjoying good times with family and friends. It is also about a deeper understanding of the area - meeting local people, exploring and discovering the natural beauty, food, wine, history, culture and recreation of the destination.

This section is not a comprehensive travel guide. It is designed to give you a taste of local life and insight into the town or region closest to your villa – shopping, restaurants, culture, history and activities. It includes some of our personal favorites both well known and hidden gems. This section also contains Spotlights on current hot topics – events, local celebrities, things to do, dining out, culinary arts, and up and coming wineries.

When you book your BeautifulPlaces villa, we will share our local connections, access and insider tips to facilitate a rich and authentic vacation experience.
