10 seaside houses to spend the next holidays From the Masseria in Salento to the villa overlooking the Amalfi Coast

Everyone keeps saying it: this is going to be a summer different from all the others. But why not enjoy a relaxing stay among sun, sea and good food? The safest and the most shared option is to rent a house on the beach, perhaps with a swimming pool or with direct access to the sea, where you can escape in the company of family and friends.

The types of accommodation are endless: from the farmhouse with spa in Salento to the late 19th-century residence on the sea of Sicily, from the house in Capri with panoramic terrace to the villa set on Monte Argentario; from the eco-lodge to the modern and minimalist house in Puglia.
