Expectations were high based on referrals, materials and phone conversations with Lori Redmond but the actual experience exceeded them. It was perfect in every respect. We especially enjoyed the outstanding service provided by Asia and her staff.

The house was beautiful and extremely comfortable. The setting and the view were gorgeous. Antonella, Lucia and Asia are a fantastic team and made our stay very special. We love the pool. The entire crew could not have been happier or asked for more.   Thank you, we had a phenomenal time.

Hi Lori,

I just wanted to reach out to you again. I had sent you an email when we got back to the states. I just wanted to tell you again we had a very memorable trip to Positano. The trip was absolutely amazing.  From the transfer with Gennaro, the greeting with Paola, the villa, the restaurants,  the views,  the boat, and of course all your help.

I truly appreciate you making our trip a wonderful experience.  We have already recommended this experience to others and will definitley be back.

We are back to reality.  Home safely and already doing laundry. We had a wonderful family trip.  The villa was great.  The weather was magnificent, and everything in between was just amazing.

Thank you for making our family vacation a memorable week. We will definitley be back!

All the best,

Lori,
 
I hope all is well!
 
I just wanted to send you a quick note.

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our Italy trip.  All of the accommodations were awesome and your recommendations even better.  Candy is already looking into planning another trip as soon as possible.

We made great friends in Panzano at a small restaurant (Cantinetta Sassolini) in town recommended by Gabriele. The Rome apartment was in the perfect location, just off the Trevi fountain, where we found another awesome local restaurant (Il Chianti Vineria) and not in the middle of a touristy area.
 
Thanks again for everything and I look forward to planning another trip with Via Villas!

We were able to have a cooking class with Marta’s partner at the apartment in Venice Calle delle Erbe, after shopping the market with Anna. We found our first meal in a old local restaurant (Trattoria Altanella) 4 doors away from the apartment!

Thanks again for everything and I look forward to planning another trip with Via Villas!

My dear Lori, we are back in San Diego after a fabulous nine weeks in Italy! I want to thank you very much for all your recommendations for our trip.
Our five weeks in Positano were beautiful and although, at the beginning we felt a bit crammed in the apartment, in the end it really was perfect for the both of us. We met the owners, had a drink with them at their home in Positano, and all in all it was a great experience.
Rome however was a different matter! The apartment was way above our expectations! Beautiful, comfortable, completely equipped with whatever we could need. Ludovico, took care of every little eventuality. Jacky, the helper, was excellent. At the beginning we didn't take her every day but as the house filled up with our guests she came every day and with the greatest of dispositions.
I really want to thank you very much for making our stay in Italy so very enjoyable and rest assure that you will be included in our future planning - hopefully not too far in the future!
Looking forward to hearing from you and once again thank you very much.
Love, Gail T.

This was the most amazing place for a family vacation we could have imagined. The locale, the house and pool, the staff were everything we dreamed of. You have set the bar very high. It was worth every Euro.

Lori,

It was truly a memorable experience and all parties were amazed at the house.  Everyone wants to return and we will definitely contact you for future trips.

The house was overall much better than the web pictures suggested.

Thanks again.

Dear Lori and James,

Hope that you are well.

As you will see from my Feedback, our holiday in Villa Francesca was most enjoyable.

It has been a wonderful holiday for all of us at Villa Francesca. Francesca herself, her parents, her friend Camilla and, last but not least, the housekeeper, Elena, have looked after us in an exceptional manner. The close proximity of the villa to the village was a real plus. All the locals were lovely people and we made friends with them. I can only be complimentary about our experience!
 

Of all the other villas that we have rented over the years, this was the only one where we had close contact with the owners and what wonderful people they are!

Francesca and her family are the loveliest people - any request we had was immediately responded to.

Ited over the years this was the only one where we had close contact with the owners and what wonderful people they are!

Thank you again and it will be my pleasure to recommend your agency to my friends.

Rafael and Mariella were terrific. Great feasts! Wonderful thoughtful service. Bruno went out of his way to solve a transportation problem that arose when my son's airplane landed at the wrong city.

Good Morning Lori,
Just wanted to send a sincere thank you to you & James. We came back on Sunday from Italy & truly had one of our very best vacations.  We loved our little villa & the location, compound, Paola & Daisy were all perfect. The views/terrace were absolutely wonderful. As you know I was nervous having only used hotels/resorts, ships when in Europe.  Your attention to detail before & the management's once there were so spot on. Totally seamless & stress free.  No surprises!! Was wonderful to know you still had access to any amenities/ support you would desire but had privacy & the perfect environment. Was just what we were looking for so authentic & can't wait to return. Also, Gennaro was just great transferring us to & from Rome & also had a beautiful day with him touring the Amalfi coast.  We will always contact you first with confidence when considering a villa vacation & definitely recommend you to our family & friends.  Would love to organize a family vacation to this property!! Will work on that. smile

Have a wonderful safe summer!

Hi Lori and James,
 
I am sorry for the delayed response however after being away for a month it has taken this long to get things somewhat back in order. We would like to thank you both for helping us achieve what has turned out to be a dream vacation. Both villas were wonderful and the people we met connected with both were not only accommodating in whatever needed to be loved after , but personally delightful . We would never for an instant hesitate to return. We have already recommended both villas and you might have already heard from one party.  I am sure we will return and will definitely contact Via Villas of Italy first .
Again many thanks for your advise , and information to all questions it is and was greatly appreciated.
