Worcester-based David Carroll (pictured with daughter Chloe, right, and son Peter, top) owns a two-bedroom apartment in the Chiaia district of Naples. He and his children usually spend three weeks there every summer, as well as a week at Christmas and Easter. At all other times of the year, the apartment offers holiday rentals managed by a local agency.

What drew him to Naples? “I know it’s not an obvious choice for a holiday home!” David laughs. “I suppose most people are looking for a villa set in lemon groves or a house on the beach or something. But I just love the buzz of Naples. I love Neapolitans and their energy, and I wanted to be in the heart of this place. I first came here on business twenty years ago, and it was love at first sight.

And the food is to die for.

About Italia!

Our writers have travelled around Italy this month to bring you inspiration for your next adventures in 'il bel paese'. Lake Garda is our starting point, an ever-popular destination where quieter corners still remain – if you know where to go. We also head to the hills in Tuscany’s Casentino Forest (whose trees provided the wood for scaffolding to build Brunelleschi’s dome), and if you want to get fit, a healthy spa break in Puglia could be just what you’re looking for.
