Italian villas with soul

From the Alps in the north to Mount Etna in the south, and from Sardinia in the west to Puglia in the east, Italy is a land of a million natural, man-made and gastronomic marvels. It boasts more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country, and in terms of historical and cultural influence, it has had few rivals in the western world. Small wonder, then, that Italy has been one of the most desirable travel destinations for centuries.

Our regions


Sicily is the largest and the most diverse island in the Mediterranean. With its intriguing history, enviable climate, stunning beaches, active volcanoes, idyllic archipelagos, mouthwatering cuisine, and excellent wine, it has just about everything you could possibly wish for, and it’s no coincidence that so many of our clients return year after year, always finding something new to explore.


The heel of Italy, Puglia extends for some 400km from the north to its southernmost tip (finibus terrae to the Romans). Its coastline is lapped by the Adriatic and the Ionian seas and dotted with magnificent beaches and coves; its numerous pretty towns and villages are full of architectural, historical and cultural interest; and its excellent cuisine is humble by tradition and tasty by nature.
