A familiar and firm favourite, Italy is known to everyone but for many for different reasons. It is the historic heart of Europe and the mighty ancient Roman Empire, home of innumerable cultural and artistic galleries and sites as well as world-renowned cuisine. We know Italy in intimate detail and would love the chance to give you truly unique, luxury holiday experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime. From tastings of Venice’s uniquely cultivated wines, discovered on the lagoon from your own private Riva to exploring the winding roads of inland Sicily from the back of a vintage Vespa or perhaps just a relaxing luxury escape to the stunning Amalfi coast, we believe Italy really does have something for everyone and all with the added bonus of being just a short flight away. Ranging from north to south, city to countryside and from mountains to beach we have handpicked a selection of beautiful hotels throughout the country in some of Italy’s finest destinations. However, please do ask us about alternative accommodation or destinations that might be of interest.
