Ian - Vista Spettacolore - Amalfi Coast
"Holiday Homes Italy were so amazing from start to finish, and everything was arranged to the finest detail. I can't praise Mark enough for the quality and professional service we received, nothing was too much trouble. Our villa Vista Spettacolare was on recommendation from Holiday Homes in Italy and we were not let down. The welcome we received from the owner Enzo was amazing and he couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was special, and that includes his home made Limoncello !! The villa is situated overlooking the sea with an amazing infinity pool, which is just so relaxing and includes jacuzzi gets too ! There is so much space around the villa and it is lovingly decorated throughout. There is no need to leave the villa, because you have everything there, but if you do a bus takes you into Positano, Amalfi and Sorento located at the entrance gates to the villa. Positano, a glorious picturesque town, is only 2-3 miles away, Amalfi is a further 5 miles on and Sorento is only 10 miles from the villa. There are three beaches at the foot of the cliff where the villa is situated and this takes about 15 minutes to walk down to. This is an amazing place to stay and will fulfil your dreams of a relaxing holiday taking in one of the most wonderful parts of the world. The owner Enzo provides the finishing touches to a special stay to ensure you have everything you need. Highly recommended !!"
Jeremy - Villa Melone - Tuscany
"Firstly, can I thank you for your service in arranging the holiday. You were extremely helpful and prompt in replying to all of my queries. You handled our brief well and found us a property when we were struggling to do it ourselves. Your instructions were clear and accurate. Great Job. The House. Pisa airport is 28 minutes to the west and Florence 45 minutes to the East. Siena is 1.30 hrs south east. Rolling Tuscan can be found about 30 mins south of the house. The surrounding region is unremarkable flat farming land. The site on which the farmhouse is situated is different. It is on a hill surrounded by trees which makes for a green, secluded oasis. As for the property. The description on the website is extremely accurate, with the phrase, "Traditional Tuscan Farmhouse," encapsulating the essence of the property. The house is rustic which brings its own charm. The downstairs bathroom needs renovating but the others are bright and modern. The beds are comfy and there are plenty of seating areas. The kitchen is large but the owners need to invest in pots and pans. 1 frying pan, 1 saucepan is not enough when the house can cater for 8 people. As for spoons, there were 2. Everything else was fine. The outside is fabulous. The owners spends a great deal of time and effort in making the grounds and pool perfect and they need to be congratulated for it. Well mown green lawns, which are watered every day, surround a large private pool which is shallow enough for children and deep enough for extra fun. I reckon it was 2.5M at the deep end. We were a family of 2 Adults, 3 children and 2 grandparents. It was big enough for us to rattle around in. We had a great time. Well done Homes in Italy, we hope to use you again."
Anita - Casa Pietra Vista - Umbria
"Our stay at Casa Pietra Vista was perfect for our family who had travelled from the UK, Australia and New Zealand. The attractively restored house is large, clean and well presented with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday. The views of the mountains and the nightly sunsets are literally magical. Anna and her team work so hard to ensure that everything is perfect, unobtrusively keeping the pool clean and beautiful gardens neat. Ripe tomatoes, cucumber and melon from the vegetable garden were picked and delivered for us to enjoy. We have travelled in Italy before, but would recommend Umbria for its exciting scenery and beautiful hilltop villages - we have been converted and will always head to Umbria in the future. Thanks to Anna and her team and also to you, Mark for finding the property and recommending Umbria to us. We are already thinking about going back next year, so will be in touch!"
Stephanie - Casa Bosco (Tuscany)
"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Casa Bosco was absolutely fantastic - it exceeded our expectations! From the moment we arrived and met the key holder who was very friendly and helpful through our entire time at this beautiful property, we couldn't have been happier. The views are stunning from both the house, the many seating areas and from the pool - we could quite happily live there!!! The house was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. The towels are so soft! The only thing that would make this place better would be air conditioning - the house was cool in the day but as we needed to keep the windows closed at night we struggled to sleep properly - the heat was almost unbearable to be fair! That said, I would definitely stay again and would like to say how happy we were with the level of communication and help from Mark at Homes in Italy. Our next trip to Italy will most certainly be booked through this company"

Our guide to Tuscany
Tuscany offers a rich combination of culture, historic cities, antiquities, agreeable climate and friendly locals it encapsulates everything that is beautiful about Italy. Its cities such as Lucca, Pisa, Siena and Florence offer magnificent gothic, Romanesque and renaissance buildings and works of art. Tuscany has also been home to some of Italy’s most talented artists and writers, such as Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Dante. It is this rich mixture of art and history that defines Tuscany and sets it apart from its counterparts.
Something that you will find is that the regional landscape is very diverse, from the rolling hills and vineyards of the Chianti region around Siena to the rugged coastline around Argentario and the Apuan Mountains in the north.
"Chiantishire" the stretch between Florence and Siena still houses some of Tuscanys most charming villages such as Castellina, Radda in Chianti and Gaiole. Slightly further to the West of Siena are some of Tuscanys best-preserved medieval towns, such as Sam Gimignano and Colle di Val D'elsa.
For those loving the mountains, the rugged area to the north of Lucca, called the Garfagnana, is a treat. This area offers pretty stone villages perched on hilltops, especially in and around the towns of Bagni di Lucca and Barga.
What to do?
This is a region that is drenched in culture, so expect an array of festivals, especially in the summer months that range from simple flag waving village affairs to the world famous horse racing Palio in Siena and the Viareggio carnival.
Shopping is a favourite pastime in Italy and Tuscany offers great style and quality, especially in fashion, leather and also home design and furniture as well as antiques. For clothes shopping, Florence is second to none with fantastic boutiques and out-of-town designer outlets. Arezzo houses the largest outdoor antiques fair in its square and you can also find outdoor antique fairs in Lucca and other towns.
Italy is not known for its Golf but for Golf lovers, Tuscany really does steal the march with courses around Florence, Montecatini Terme, Punta Ala, Tirrenia and Orbetello amongst others. Other activities of interest include sailing and diving (especially along the more southern coastline around Argentario), horse riding and fishing.
Where to stay
With such a popular region, you will be spoilt for choice in terms of accommodation in Tuscany. The picture-perfect renovated vacation farmhouse in Tuscany is the most popular choice of accommodation nessled into the rolling countryside and there are also larger rustic properties converted into quaint apartments with shared pools for smaller groups.
In addition to this, you can really live the true Italian lifestyle by renting an apartment in Tuscany in one of the quaint towns.
How to get there?
Pisa airport is the main International Airport in Tuscany and the number and diversity of flights has increased dramatically in recent years. Amerigo Vespucci airport in Florence also has possibilities from the UK. You can also drive up from Rome.
What to eat?
An unmistakable ingredient in Tuscan life is its cuisine; good traditional food using fresh ingredients and is full of flavour. Tuscan vegetable soup is delicious as is the famous Florentine steak. Expect to see plenty of wild game on the menu and lovely rice dishes served with a mixture of meat and chicken.
The region also produces some of the most famous wines in Italy, with Chianti being the most famous and Brunello di Montalcino being considered to be the best.
The region offers a landscape that has the most lasting charm. It has an abundance of medieval towns that are second to none and a sheer beauty that it difficult to rival. A simple walk becomes a joy in these surroundings and you are faced with hundreds of years of civilisation. Strolling through medieval streets, you will fall upon endless art and architecture that is second to none.
For those simply wishing to relax, the beaches are lovely and most countryside villas in Tuscany have a swimming pool, perfect for lazy days to soak up the beautiful surroundings. The combination of coastline, mountains, countryside and beautiful towns and cities such as Florence, Siena, Cortona, Lucca, Montepulciano (and we could go on) is truly hard to match.
