Tuscany Now

was founded in 1990 by Simon and Barbara with a portfolio of just one single house, Vaggio Savernano. From then our 'family' has grown to include a team of 11 staff based in London and 180 owners of the exquisite properties you see on this website. Each one of us is devoted to providing you with your very own ideal setting in the most beautiful country in the world, Italy.

The approach we take is distinctly focused: our portfolio only includes properties exclusive to Tuscany Now, which not only meet our degree of quality but offer the features we consider essential and that include competent and friendly staff. We inspect every single property to ensure our high standards are maintained and, in partnership with two specialist travel agencies, offer seamless service and hospitality.

Our sales team is composed entirely of Italians or Italophiles who have lived in Italy and who know the properties and their surrounding areas first-hand.

In an Internet-driven age, we take the best of both worlds and prefer to talk to our clients directly, discussing their specific needs and expectations by providing local knowledge, useful advice and arranging a wealth of extra services to guarantee a fantastic travel experience. We complement this personal approach with extensive, in-depth information and our very own high-resolution photographs for every single property present on our website.

We simply rent private homes in Tuscany and select regions in Italy – and we do it very, very well…

OUR TEAM

These are the people who organise your holiday, arrange experiences and answer your queries. If you've booked with us before you'll probably know some of them pretty well! Every member of the sales team has visited the majority of our villas and is happy to talk to you about any of them. Alongside those in our London office, our team also includes fundamental external team members that ensure everything runs smoothly and successfully.

OUR Villa Owners

Without the owners Tuscany Now would not be able to exist. They are the people that have created the original, relaxed and welcoming feeling in every property. Their personal touches make the homes unique, and by working closely with them we can assure their cherished properties fulfil their maximum potential.

Support Staff

They are the ones that work to keep the private homes in excellent working order. Whether it is maids, gardeners, tradesmen or caterers – they are all committed to making your holiday as trouble-free and functional as possible.

THE SPECIALISTS

For a touch of luxury and to make your stay truly memorable our hands-on specialists are available to make your experience in Italy complete. From lessons with professional chefs to personal gelato makers at your villa, we collaborate with some of the finest Italian maestros in the area to add the perfect touch to your stay.
