Renting a holiday villa in Friuli will be the perfect base to explore one of the most versatile regions in Italy. From snow capped mountains, roman ruins and sandy beaches to lagoons filled with birdlife, renting a holiday house in Friuli provides the traveller with a variety of exciting activities.
A region which speaks own language (Friulian, or furlan) with much influence from its Austrian and Slavic neighbours. Parts of the city of Friuli date back to the 8th Century and some of the old buildings are worthy of a visit including the Santa Maria nunnery chapel of Santa Maria in Valle. Further east you will find a Slavic influence, with the chance to be in two countries (Italy and Slovenia) at the same time when visiting the border town of Gorizia. Perhaps you will be seeking a holiday house in Friuli to visit the city of Trieste, a crossroads of Germanic, Latin and Slavic cultures. Historically Trieste became a prosperous seaport in the Mediterranean region, which now boasts many cultural attractions, museums, cafes, ancient Roman remains and magnificent castles to explore. A stay in a holiday house in Friuli will not go without a feast on some of the regions locally produced foods; some of Italy’s finest white wines can be found here, as well as the infamous San Daniele ham, and world-renowned coffee. Active and sports oriented travellers may seek a holiday house in Friuli’s northern Alpine areas of Carnia where hiking and skiing activities are on offer. For the wildlife lover, there are plenty of bird-watching opportunities in the lagoons of Marano and Grado. And lastly, let’s not forget the golden sand beaches and the tranquil sea of Lignano and Grado beach resorts. Go in search of your holiday house in Friuli to find a perfect getaway the whole family can enjoy.
