Where it all began…
Founded in 1984 and acquired by Sonia Nesti in 1989, Villa Toscana Srl is an incoming travel agent specialising in self-catering villa holidays in Tuscany.
Sonia has worked in the travel industry for over 40 years. Her experience and passion for travel has given her a unique understanding of what makes the perfect holiday for visitors coming to this beautiful part of Italy. Having grown up in Tuscany, she has an extensive knowledge of the region and saw the potential to attract tourists to the lesser-known areas outside of the typical Chianti region.
Beginning with just a handful of apartments, she continued to source new properties each year and then began to be more selective and concentrate specifically on villas with private pools. In 1995 the company set up its first website and began to consolidate working relationships with some major international companies.
Today, with its office based in the picturesque hilltop town of Peccioli, right in the heart of Tuscany, Villa Toscana has built up a selection of hand-picked villas set in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Each of our villas has their own private pool, free wifi and many have air conditioning included in the rental price. Regular visits to the villas and constant contact with the owners help maintain high standards, ensure health and safety requirements are fulfilled and guarantee enjoyment for all our guests.
Our dedicated team of bilingual staff are always close at hand to manage enquiries on a day-to-day basis and to provide the best possible service and assistance to both guests and villa owners throughout the year.
Villa Toscana is here to help with any individual requests and to ensure your holiday in Tuscany runs smoothly with a perfect balance of traditional, Italian living and modern comforts whilst discovering the delights of Tuscan food, wine, culture and history.
We are always keen to hear from villa owners interested in increasing their bookings and maximising their rental income.
Please do contact us to arrange a visit to your property.
