Savor a Taste of Italy
If you crave the aroma of fresh pasta complemented by views of the Mediterranean Sea, look no further than your own private villa. Owners at the Executive, Presidential, and Chairman’s Club benefit level can use Vacation Club Points to make Italian vacation dreams come true through Villas of Distinction®.
Whether you’re planning a reunion in wine country, a destination wedding on the beach, or a large getaway with friends, these spacious homes are the ideal home base to explore the region’s best cuisine.
TUSCANY, SICILY, AND THE AMALFI COAST
With over 200 Italian villas, you’ll have plenty of options with space for the whole family. Your vacation retreat will come equipped with all your favorite comforts, and your personal Concierge is standing by to help arrange services, including transportation, excursions, local experiences, and much more.
In Tuscany, you can explore Renaissance art and architecture; see the Leaning Tower of Pisa; and explore the charming towns of Lucca, Florence, and Siena. The region is home to some of Italy’s most popular wines, which pair perfectly with a fresh-made Italian dish. From a 7-bedroom home on a tranquil Tuscan countryside estate to a 10-bedroom villa near Lucca, you can plan a large family getaway. A 3-bedroom villa starts at only 1,000 Vacation Club Points per night.
Traveling with a smaller crowd? 3-bedroom villas begin at just 1,000 Vacation Club Points per night. While in town, savor the fresh, simple seafood cuisine the city is known for or explore Palermo, Sicily’s capital, for ancient charm and vibrant markets.
For dishes flavored with the juice and zest of fresh lemons, head to the Amalfi Coast, a region known primarily for its cultivation of the fruit — as well as exceptional cuisine. Enjoy a couple’s retreat or family getaway at a 2-bedroom villa just moments from Positano starting at just 1,500 Vacation Club Points per night. Or host a large celebration in a villa with majestic views just a short walk from the beach beginning at 9,500 Vacation Club Points per night.
