Homes and Villas Abroad enlarges holiday homes portfolio

The Italian lakes region has for millennia enraptured visitors, with some of the country’s most sought-after property located here.

Now HomesAndVillasAbroad.Com, one of the leading Italian property companies, can announce it is significantly broadening its portfolio of apartments and villas for sale in the region in response to demand from its clientele seeking to purchase real estate here.

To this end the company has signed partnerships with a number of real estate agents in the lake district to market their portfolios to a wider, multinational client base.

Homes and Villas Abroad is a complete package provider for people purchasing in Italy and has also hired a team of bilingual specialists in the lakes area to ensure the company offers as tailor-made a service as possible to its customer base, drawn from throughout the world.

Languages that the company caters for are English, German, French, Italian, Norwegian, Russian and Spanish.

Marketing head Simon Llewellyn commented: “Demand for homes in the lakes arearemains solid, in particular with clients from Russia, with units boasting a lake view understandably being most important on their wishlist.

“It is an area in which we were already had a presence, but we decided to seek additional partners to help us in meeting increasing demand.

“Despite the enduring appeal of Tuscany, the lakes region is one of Italy’s most beautiful areas but is not as out of reach financially as many people think; our prices start at about US$130,000 for a single-bedroom condo.

“Despite famous names such as actor George Clooney, soccer coach Jose Mourinho and airline tycoon Sir Richard Branson all owning expensive mansions here, there is something to suit pretty much all pockets.”

The region’s principal lakes are Como, Maggiore, Garda, Orta, Iseo and Endine.

There are excellent transport links, thanks to the six nearby airports. The nearest is 30 minutes away in Lugano, just over the Swiss border. There are three others in Milan, all within a 90-minute radius, while the final two are slightly further afield in Verona and Brescia.

Beautiful Flooring Direct have put together a superb range of all types of flooring for the complete floor covering market and the company is pleased to note that one of the most hard wearing and popular of all the ranges is the luxury vinyl tiles which are becoming such a staple workhorse of the market. The quality of the product is one, which Beautiful Flooring Direct has been proud to put at the forefront of their full range of luxury flooring business. The luxury vinyl tile is an expanding market, which has been growing quite quickly for the past few years. Increasingly, you’re now able to buy luxury vinyl tiles online, as more and more retailers get involved with what is a booming and ever popular type of flooring.

Beautiful Flooring Direct has been pleased to supply their full range to a large variety of different applications where the tiles have invariably been used where their major qualifications have been used to the full. The vinyl tile is ideal for use in areas where there is a need for a hard wearing surface that can be cleaned instantly and returned to its former glory. The lifespan of the luxury vinyl tile is excellent and when such a floor is installed it will outlive most of its users and it is more likely to be changed from the wish to see something new or change the design of the room. Beautiful Flooring Direct recommend this type of flooring for use in the kitchen, hallways and utility rooms where there is a regularly hard wearing pattern and the possibility of spills or muddy shoes as the quality of the flooring will result in a standard cleaning bringing the floor back to its original state. Indeed luxury vinyl tiles in bathrooms are becoming more of a common sight too, as the surface is ideal to contain spills without becoming overly slippery.

Beautiful Flooring Direct – – has seen some excellent designs using the luxury vinyl tile as the versatility of the range allows a superb style range to be achieved. The luxury vinyl tile range can come in almost any type of material finish. The tile may look like stone with all the imperfections and grain styles and striations or it may look like quartz or a fantastic Italian marble effect. The advantage that this has to the designer is that the designs that suit the particular materials can be reproduced with the luxury vinyl tile. It is quite usual to see the luxury vinyl tile system being used in a typical modern take on the Roman marble floor. The Roman patterns can be reproduced and there are ranges of border or edging strips, which can be used to profile the design or to set the boundaries of the design. The door strips, ramps and cover strips are used to finish the design and provide a great boundary to the edges of the flooring.

The range sold by Beautiful Flooring Direct give a fabulous amount of options to the designer and the complete range of different types of luxury tiles can be seen on the company’s web site. If there are any queries the company will be only too willing to answer any queries by email or telephone.
