Villa Rental Specialist 2000-2021

Because we're skilled travel fixers that
can craft an unforgettable experience


Top Travel Specialist 2011-2023

Because we can pull off the impossible
and make things work no matter what

The delight of staying in an historic villa or in a unique country home can be made even more enjoyable if one chooses to explore the surrounding cities, towns and countryside. Our art historians, many of whom teach in the American and English university programs found throughout Italy, are both extremely knowledgeable and very eloquent wherever your itinerary may take you. We can often arrange reservations to museums and secure private viewings of special sites and collections not open to the general public, arrange sessions with wine and food experts, secure English speaking drivers with vans or cars and schedule excellent musicians to play classical, traditional Italian or jazz programs for your evenings in our homes. The culture, art and history of Italy takes on new meaning when one is able to see and learn with specialized resources and to experience the lifestyle of our unique country.

Choose from over 80 Villas, Castles, Palaces and Country homes for rent in Tuscany, Venice and the Veneto, Umbria, Rome, Positano, Capri and Portofino.
