Our Story

The Best in Italy was founded in 1982 by Count Girolamo and Countess Simonetta Brandolini d’Adda when they began renting their own property near Siena to acquaintances in the United States. Girolamo’s family originates from the Veneto and from Tuscany while Simonetta was born in the United States and has lived most of her life in Italy. Their daughter Polissena is now a partner in the company. After the first successful year many of their friends and relatives throughout Italy asked that their properties be managed by The Best in Italy.
