There's an extra level to relaxation when you don't have to pile into a car every time you need groceries, or the kids would like an icecream. Stroll into your local village for your morning Cappuccino or for your evening meals, then walk back in the evening as the fireflies flicker in the fields and the moon rises over the vineyards; this is real Villa living. We've selected all of our villas in Italy and France with villages, towns or restaurants within reach of shanks pony - we visit each and every one personally and test the walks too, so we can give you first-hand advice and accounts on what each walk is actually like, and what is close by. From Provencal Stone houses on edge of villages in the Luberon, to luxury Tuscany Villas with a restaurant just round the corner, or romantic honeymoon cottages with a hamlet a brief walk away, we've been there, so just ask!
