Wonderful property. This is our second time renting a villa through Via Villas of Italy and both times the properties were exceptional. We can't wait for a third!

Dear James and Lori,

Our trip to the Amalfi coast was the trip of a lifetime! The villa Vistamare was perfect for our group of 15 and an absolutely wonderful place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. The location offered us great access to see as much of the Amalfi coast as one can see in one week and we were all wishing we had a second week to just stay at the villa and enjoy the beautiful grounds and scenery. The two meals prepared and served at the villa were fabulous and better than any restaurant. It is always difficult to rent something you cannot see but our conversations and the fact that you actually visit the properties was very comforting. It was everything you said it would be and you can be sure that I will be recommending VIA Villas to family and friends who plan to travel to Italy in the future. With warm regards,

Just a quick note to say how much my family, friends and I enjoyed the villa in Praiano. Your suggestion was right on the money, both in terms of size and location (I can't believe how much Positano has developed since I was there last) and the beauty of it remains in my dreams now that I am back in dismal New York. So thank you. I also have to say that the driver, Gennaro was terrific--the provided transfers for several of us and he was a joy to work with and very reasonably priced-- I would highly recommend him again. James and Lori were wonderful throughout this whole process. Short of making the property free of cost, I can't think of anything else that could be improved.

The Villa was great, the staff Pina and Olga most accommodating and nice and made every effort to make us feel at home for 2 weeks. Thanks to James for talking to the owner, it made everything better. For James and Lori thank you very much for all your help and suggestions, we had a wonderful 2 weeks on the Amalfi Coast.

We had the pleasure of staying at this amazing villa from July 1st through July 10th with Pat & Christine and a great group of people. Your staff was absolutely incredible. Ester and Olga were first class, friendly and made us feel like we where being taken care of by family. We wanted to bring them home with us. Cannot wait to do it again. 

Thanks, Dan & Cheryl Boca Raton, Florida

It was awesome and Olga and Ester were fantastic. It was by far one of the most beautiful villas we have ever used. You both are great at what you do and we would recommend you to anyone traveling to Italy.
