Rent Your Own Village is a travel campaign by GroupAccomodation.com that offers “a place where guests can take home an experience, something to talk about and to remember.” Situated against the backdrop of the Sibillini mountains and sea, the tiny hilltop village of Petritoli is located close to the Adriatic coast within an unspoiled region of Italy, Le Marche, about three hours northeast of Rome.

By renting your own village, you can take in the ancient charm of this tranquil town, complete with stone homes, towers, winding cobblestone alleys, a Baroque theatre, Roman cellars, and a lovely castle, for about close to $2K per night.

Up to 200 visitors can stay in the village, with your choice of lodgings like a castle with pending gardens and swimming pools, self-catered apartments, charming traditional houses, boutique lodgings, bed and breakfasts, and a host of other hotels. You also won’t need to worry about food since there are 19 kitchens available for guests, with a professional catering team to provide breakfast, lunch, gala and banquet catering for up to 200 people.

This once-in-a-lifetime holiday deal is worthwhile, not just for the chance to enjoy an entire village all to yourself, but for the opportunity to experience the charm of authentic Italy. Guests will have access to private parks, amusement facilities, saloons, squares and gardens alongside the sights of the local beaches and the rolling hills.

“The village is hidden and has not got the typical trappings of tourism,” like multilingual menus, looming parking tickets or insistent vendors”, according to the website. “In no time, you will feel like a local, welcomed by the hosts of your village because they are happy you came.”
