Finding Great Holiday Villas Since 1982

We started from a farmhouse in Tuscany over 35 years ago, and since then have compiled decades of experience. We always personally visit villas and houses - and love matching people to the right holiday home.

Covid Statement

We know many people have been concerned about their travel plans in the current fluctuating virus situation. We are being flexible in moving holidays and delaying balance payments - please contact us if concerned.

Concierge service

We love matching you to a great villa; we also like to help you with a tailored concierge service for your holiday party. We can organise a chef, a car, a wine tasting tour - indeed anything that takes your fancy. Our team have an extensive knowledge of the areas surrounding all of our villas, so we can suggest exciting things to see and do.

  • From P.C., guests August 2021

    We had the great pleasure of staying at Casa Allioni for a week in August ’21 and it was fantastic.  The house and grounds perched on top of the hill overlooking the valley is a breathtaking sight.  The home has...

  • From Ina and family, guests July 2021

    we spent a wonderful time at Pietrina that is situated in a very panoramic position close to San Giustino Valdarno. Pietrina is a traditional tuscan farmhouse that has been enlarged over the times - this explains its somehow warped architecture...

  • From Ina and family, guests July 2021

    Our stay at Dipinta di Blu will be a memorable one: it is such a special house, in fact, a piece of art entirely. Each room has its own flair and character; I loved especially the "stairway to heaven" painted...

  • From Ina and family, guests July 2021

    I simply have to state that Villa Colomba was the incarnation of my dreams of a Tuscan farmhouse: it is a spacious house that has kept all the traditional elements of Tuscan farmhouses, as the old cotto floor, the chestnut...

  • From anon, guests August 2020

    Thank you for your hospitality and kindness that made our stay fantastic as usual. The home-cooking by Pieranna adds a touch that you cannot find anywhere else in Tuscany. The Chianti region is beautiful also in autumn.
