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

My desire is to provide you with accurate, up-to-date information and the best personalized service in the industry.

Although she's traveled throughout Italy, France, Switzerland, and Monaco, Kate's

an experience not to be missed!
Of Italian and French descent, Cami has spent most of her career in the film industry-- even working with famed Italian

food, and at the moment she's learning how to speak Italian.
Nicole's love of travel began when she spent time living in Spain. Her passion started in Alcala de Henares, but grew deeper with each
trip throughout Spain, Italy, and Portugal. Want to experience culture come to life? Let Nicole guide you into a world of tapas, festivals

If you're on our mailing list, you've
already "met" Nikki, who keeps our clients up to date on the latest villa news and bargains! Though her claim to fame is "surviving"

her favorite hangouts include London, Florence, Cortona, Prague, and the rather obscure English village of Lichfield.
Ever wonder who's responsible for those tantalizing descriptions on our site? That would be Nicole, our resident writer.
Prior to joining Rentvillas.com, she lived in France, where she fell in love with Paris: "I love wandering the streets,

destinations are Cannes and London.
