    Come posso tradurre “casa vacanze”? La traduzione sarebbe “vacations house”?
    Grazie in anticipo!

    Is a "casa vacanze" a second house used for spending leisure time? In the U.S., this would be called a vacation home or (if it's used primarily in summer, as many are) a summer house. Here in New England, the descriptor is often omitted. If you live in Boston, but have a house on Martha's Vineyard or Cape Cod or in the Berkshires, people will understand that it is a second home where you go to "get away and relax." :)

    Salve a tutti. Sono nuovo del forum e purtroppo per me ancor piu’ nuovo dello studio della lingua inglese.
    Come posso tradurre secondo voi una "Casa Vacanze" che io affitto a terzi. Ovvero a chi vuole passare una vacanza al mare e ha bisogno di una casa. Piu' praticamente trattasi di case al mare che affitto a turisti inglesi e non. Come posso tradurre in inglese questa offerta? Ho pensato a "Tourist Houses" ma non so se e' giusto.


    Thank you in advance..…

    Ringrazio MünchnerFax per il suo aiuto e le sue indicazioni, e ne approfitto per scusarmi per aver posto due treath in una sola comunicazione e anche per averli ripetuti. Come gia' specificato sono nuovo del forum e ancora non ho dimestichezza con le tante regole di questo.
    Grazie per la comprensione..

    In una vecchia discussione si parlava di "vacation rental". Può andare?

    Come direste voi: la composizione della casa vacanze è la seguente?

    Io ho scritto: The composition of the holidays house is:

    Andy, what exactly do you mean by composizione?

    I'd suggest "holiday home" in BE or "vacation home" in AE...

    Forse in questo caso, "composizione" significa "arrangement"?

    Un suggerimento: The arrangement of the vacation home is as follows:

    The layout of the holiday home is as follows:

    The holiday home is made up of:

    I believe this is the right answer, but since the Italian sentence is all but clear, I'd wait for an alternative and better written sentence.

    Hello everyone,

    sorry to bring up an old topic. I'm also looking for a correct translation for "casa vacanze". I need the reader to immediately understand it is a house for rent and not my second home where I go to have a rest.
    How do we translate this? The last suggestion was "holiday home", but wasn't the word "home" mostly used to define the house where we live?
    I translated this as "holiday house" or "vacation house" in AE, but still.. i don't know if it would be correct for a native speaker and if it would let them immediately understand it's a house for summer rental what we're talking about..
    Any advice? Thanks!

    Rental holiday/vacation house

    In Australia we also use rental holiday home even if we don't own it.

    A complete sentence would help.

    Thank you You little ripper! Actually there is no sentence.. it is for a turistic website translation, showing "case vacanze" in their sidebar menu. So I should add the word "rental" to let a reader immediately understand?

    Thank you! Would you suggest "house" or "home" if you had to choose?
  21. You little ripper! Senior Member

    Australian English
    'Houses' is probably more correct, but 'homes' has a more welcoming feel about it, so I would choose the latter.

    Yes, when you think about it, a house is a thing whereas home is an idea. :) For an advertising brochure, I agree with YLR that home is much more enticing.
