Idyll, Ltd. announces a breakthrough in do-it-yourself vacation rentals with their new product, The RIGHT Vacation Rental, offering accommodations in some of the hottest new European destinations.

Get ready to pay through the nose.

Idyll Ltd.(, known for 31 years for its European Untours, has solved yet another problem for do-it-yourself Internet shoppers. For the independent traveler, the idea of renting a villa or apartment (vs. a hotel) is tempting: having a home away from home and saving money are powerful draws. However, once you delve into the Internet to find the right property, it becomes a little like swimming with sharks. Depending on who’s doing the talking, “cozy" can mean “crummy,” and “ luxury” can mean “Get ready to pay through the nose.”

With its new product, The RIGHT Vacation Rental, Idyll now rents properties in all the most talked about destinations: the Amalfi Coast, the Greek Isles, Normandy, Dordogne, Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, the great "new" Europe destinations of Krakow and Slovenia, and more. Unlike with Untours, these vacation rentals are rented without additional services.

When an oddball company known mainly for its independence and integrity gets into the vacation rental market, it’s a breath of fresh air. When you look for vacation rental properties on your own, you worry about being swindled or overcharged, or ending up in a dump. Idyll Ltd. gives you some powerful reasons not to worry. Idyll has been called “one of the world’s 10 best travel bargains” by Arthur Frommer and has delighted thousands of travelers for 31 years. If shoppers still worry, knowing the company actually gives their profits away to charity can’t help but allay their concerns about steering clear of the "sharks" in this market. That this kind of a company is now doing straight property rental all over Europe gives the independent traveler something to cheer about.

One well known travel writer likens the experience of shopping for vacation rentals on the web to "floating in the black hole of cyberspace before one finds a good place." Now the property renter has a different kind of website at Idyll’s

  • The property has been hand-selected by Idyll, in the business of selecting great properties for 31 years.
  • The inflated markups that most “hand-picked” broker sites use are nowhere to be seen.
  • There is a wide range of properties from “simple” to “super-splurge” for all tastes and pocketbooks, with only one guarantee -- every property is good value for the money. Idyll sent its researchers out to look for themselves. They have kissed all the frogs, so you don’t have to -- you just get a choice of “princes” for properties.
  • Each property explains pluses AND the minuses, so the nasty surprise factor is eliminated.

For more than 31 years, Idyll, Ltd. has specialized in travel to Europe through their Untours, unique, affordable vacation packages that enable travelers to live in a European country instead of just passing through. Idyll, Ltd. donates nearly all of its profits to charitable causes across the globe through its own foundation, the Idyll Development Foundation (IDF). Over the course of its 31-year existence, the foundation has distributed $4 million to various projects around the world in the form of low interest loans. The travel agency and foundation owners, Norma & Hal Taussig, believe in living simply and in sharing the profits of their business to create a better world. In 1999, they won an award from Paul Newman and John F. Kennedy, Jr., for having the Most Generous Business in the United States. Their daughter, Marilee Taussig, directs The RIGHT Vacation Rental, Idyll’s first new product in its 31 years.
