Airbnb Rentals with an Artful Twist


Palazzo Berardi: Renaissance Downtown Luxury Villa

The rental includes four levels, going from the ground floor to the Winter Garden Level, the Mezzanine, and the Terrace and Events Level. The five bedrooms it contains are on the Winter Garden Level.

Garden Studio in Giverny

One of history’s most famous Impressionists, Claude Monet, created some of his best works in the gardens of Giverny in France. Immerse yourself in the same beauty that inspired him in this studio apartment set inside its own garden. This apartment is located inside an 18th century home next to a hillside garden, which you can admire from the windows just as Monet did from his own flat back then. Although there is no artwork hanging in the home, you can see the real-life beauty that inspired Monet.


Van Gogh Room: Sleep in a Painting
