APARTMENTS & VILLAS

Apartment buildings can be large or small, but the chief identifier is that the building comprises a number of units. So, unlike a house, an apartment is part of a group of homes, sometimes on several levels. Most apartments also share common areas, such as car parking, courtyards and other green spaces. A villa is a fancy vacation home. Still, the word has been around ever since ancient Roman times to mean "country house for the elite." In Italian, villa means "country house or farm." Most villas include a large amount of land and often barns, garages, or other outbuildings as well.
