Why Rent With RentVillas.com?
We care more about your trip than anyone else.
Yes, it's a bold statement. But after more than 25 years... We get it. We really do.
"Rentvillas.com was so good, that at first I sort of questioned their sincerity – how could an on-line
company really care that much about my vacation before I actually went. But from beginning to end they
provided me with the RIGHT information. They communicated with me in a timely manner,
treated all questions as important, and sent me the best materials to support our trip."

Twenty-six years ago, a month in an 18th century Tuscan villa changed my life. More than a vacation,
it was a complete cultural experience! In 1984, I founded Rentvillas to share that life-altering experience
with others. Today, I continue to travel, touring properties and brushing up on my Italian with the owners.
My desire is to provide you with accurate, up-to-date information and the best personalized service in the industry.
A native of the island of Sardinia, Marinella has lived in many beautiful coastal locations, including Sicily and Hawaii.
“To this day, I have yet to see a sea as beautiful and clear as the one in Sardinia”, she says. It’s no surprise that her
favorite food is lasagna-like suppa cuata, a traditional Sardinian wedding dish made with stale bread, fontina, pecorino,
and broth. Marinella has seen her share of European cities, but finds Rome to be the most beautiful.
From basking in the otherworldly quiet of Naples Bay as she heads toward
our newest villa... to discovering exactly what happens when you don't get advance
tickets for the Uffizi, Barbara will use her fluent Italian and two decades of experience
in Europe to get you the information-- and the helpful tips-- you need. You might
even ask her for some pointers on local cooking...

Jannah’s passion for foreign travel began in high school, where travel was a key component of the curriculum. Upon graduation,
she postponed college and journeyed throughout Europe. She became fluent in Italian during her years as an ex-pat in Ticino, the southern Canton of Switzerland. She also grew to love wild
mushrooms, risotto, and gorgonzola with mascarpone.

favorite country (the Virgin Islands are a close second), and she can even speak a few words! No stranger to Italy, Sarah has also explored Germany, Denmark, Holland, Sweden, and Norway.
