We have worked with the best hotels in Rome for over a decade and can advise accordingly. For those who want a complete escape, we can also arrange wonderful private villas out in the countryside a short drive from the city.

Tivoli Private Villa

Some of Italy’s most beautiful gardens and landscapes are a day trip away and make for a lovely contrast with walking the busy streets of Rome. There is no better place to explore Renaissance and early baroque gardens.

Rome Ninfa Gardens

Two of our most brilliant local guides live in Rome, and both published authors on the city and its history. They are passionate teachers and great fun to be with. They will transform your understanding of the Eternal City.

Rome Pantheon

Rome is a city of many layers and we love to show parts few people know about, let alone see: incredible private collections, atmospheric walks where there are few tourists and access to world renowned museums after they are closed to the public.

Rome St Peters

There are some wonderful restaurants in the South of France and over the years we have developed a list of favourites. We also arrange picnics in private gardens and dinners surrounded by private art collections.

St Tropez

If you like Picasso and Matisse, not to mention a host of other Modern artists, then you will enjoy the art on offer. Both artists moved here in the early 1920’s: Nice, Antibes, Biot, Vence, and St Paul de Vence all boast Modern art masterpieces. There are also small museums, foundations and private collections whose doors we can open.

Taking a villa is one of the ultimate ways to relax and have fun: reading by the pool, swimming, walking, and cooking lessons are all on the menu. But the Cote is also full of wonderful places to see and fabulous art. Why not have our lovely guide and driver pick you up once in a while and show you some of the most beautiful towns and villages nearby?

For those with a generous budget we can arrange an exclusive villa on the Cote d’Azur. Our villas are privately sourced and cannot be found on the internet. All our villas come fully staffed, have a chef and of course a beautiful pool, and some have extensive grounds.
