The unusual side of property management in Italy!



We have been involved in a myriad of tasks since starting this business, not only the ordinary cleaning, gardening, swimming pool maintenance, meet and greet guests, cook entire menus but here are two examples of the more out of the ordinary days:
moving a Grand Piano in a snowstorm up a 5kilometre white road.
removing a bee swarm from inside some shutters in a house, (the upside was great honey!).
The latest was by far the most unusual request.
One of our clients was making a film in Canada and was prompted by the cast to take one of the props and ship it to his house in Italy. This just happened to be a full size Gondola!
The attached pictures show my husband and our wonderful builder's merchant preparing the crate for its final journey up yet anothe rmountain to its resting place.
Life is never dull or perhaps I should say a Life less ordinary!

Golfing holidays and events


If you are a keen golfer and would like a golfing holiday combined with fantastic accomodation in one of the most beautiful countries in Europe then we can help you!
We have some beautiful villas in Umbria and can arrange either a day's or week's golfing break on a fantastic Robert Trent Jones challenging golf course in a fairytale setting.
Apart from all the amenities on offer, the club also offers wonderful social evenings such as a wine and olive oil tasting and Jazz night. Combine this with visits to historic and beautiful cities, the Umbrian Jazz festival in Perugia and lazing by the pool, what more could you ask for?
