We are an Agency founded on personal service: we visit all the houses and pride ourselves on finding you the best place for your holiday.
How it works
The easiest way to find a good villa is for you to write to us with your criteria and we will send you a list of properties we think might suit you, with pros and cons for each. Should you wish to discuss any in more detail we can ring you and go over the details of the properties; we visit each and every one and we know all the areas we deal with,so we will give you first hand personal advice. Our head office is in London but we have agents in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand - and they all come over to Italy and visit the properties. Send an enquiry
Searching on the website
You can also search on the website. We’ve tried to make it as easy as possible to search by area, or criteria, or jump start through our “collections” where we have grouped houses that have certain characteristics, like being within walking distance of a village, or good for family reunions, etc. As you search, you can add properties you like to your wishlist; when you’re happy with your list you can send to us as an enquiry, forward it to a friend, or simply keep filtering it down further.
Making a booking
When you find a house you like, you can make a booking by clicking on the “Select your dates” button on the right, under the pricing. On the next page you can select your dates by clicking on the dates you want - the website will then show you the price. By selecting the currency symbol you can see the price in one of our three guaranteed currencies. Whichever currency you choose, we guarantee your price will stay the same, so you do not have to worry about currency fluctuations. To proceed, click on “Reserve this property” and you will be asked to provide your details. Submitting your details will request the property, and reserve it for you at no cost for the next 48 hours. During that time, we also double-check with the owner that the house is available - most of our properties are exclusive, but some are not and also, by their very nature, many of the properties are privately owned and used by the owners. We will also contact you and make sure the house suits your needs and answer any queries you may have.
What happens next
When the property is confirmed you will receive an email with login and payment details. Your login, by default, is simply your email plus your booking reference, so there are no tricky passwords to set. By logging in you can check the details of your booking, add numbers in your party, arrival details and bed make-up and, crucially, pay for your deposit - 30% - and then your balance, due 10 weeks before your arrival date. You will receive automatic reminders at every stage and we will also track your bookings progress.
