Dick at To-Tuscany is the BEST! He has guided me through two bookings and the help he has provided is invaluable (arranging catered dinners, housekeepers and other staff for our trips).

Dick has been very helpful, not only in finding a villa that will accomadate all of us, but also sharing his thoughts about how to make the entire trip as enjoyable and carefree as possible. Also has given us tips on how to save money, where to shop, and weather conditions.

I found the website easy to use but learned even more after talking to Dick, he was broadly knowledgeable about a host of items. As a first time visitor to Tuscany he was exactly what I needed. Thanks!

We didn't have an agent. I just found the website when I googled "Best family villa Tuscany".

Dick was very helpful. I told him that we had never been to Italy. I told him what we had planned and asked him for any advise or changes that we should make. Dick had great suggestions and we are looking forward to our trip to Italy. Thank you Dick for all of your help!!!

No live agent was used but the fact that you don't accept American Express was a huge disappointment. An additional fee could be charged so what is the drama about not accepting AMEX?

Dick Calabro assisted us in makingour reservation and was great. He answered all of our questions and when he could not, got back to us promptly. We looked as several other web sites dozens of properties. It finally came down to the service provided by Dick.

Dick answered our phone calls and emails extremely quickly and thoroughly. The whole booking process was very efficient. I feel it's an extra bonus to have a booking agent in our own country that we can call on if needed.

Dick spent a lot of time on the phone with me and gave very candid information, in a very relaxed manner. I have no doubt that he's a sincere and honest person with a lot of personal local knowledge. I had a couple of concerns about the property based on past reviews and he was able to contact the owner and reassure me within 36 hours that those things would be addressed. I have booked the villa and I feel completely confident that it will be wonderful and as described.

Your agent (Dick) was very responsive and your owner flexible enough to allow a "non-standard" rental.

Dick Calabra saved the day! We booked a terrible property with a different company. We called Dick and he immediately sent us directions to a property that we have considered earlier. It was beautiful, just what we were looking for. The pictures on the Internet did not do it justice. The property manager wanted 850 euro/week. We paid 600 euro/ week through To-Tuscany. Dick made all the last minute calls and we were able to move to the new apartment within 24 hours. Thanks for saving the day, the apartment exceeded our expectations. We will recommend " To-Tuscany.com" to all of our friends and family. And will definately look to you for future rentals.

I can't be more pleased with the service To-Tuscany provided. Dick Calabro was especially helpful answering all of my pre-trip questions in a most helpful and timely fashion. Your website is probably one of the best I have seen for traveling in Tuscany. And for a first time visitor to Tuscany, it was very helpful. I have forwarded your site to a number of my friends who are interested in traveling to Tuscany.

What did you like about our service?
I first used your service in 2008, and the thing I liked most, other than that you had a good selection of villas, was that I could actually talk to your representatives, who either knew the answers for my particular villa questions, or found the answers and called me back. That's very rare and very important. The villa was as presented, at least as delightful as you presented it, and the owners were wonderful, Your procedures are easy and without any residual "brain damage". And to top it all off, I just received a lovely gift from Dympna, as a condolence because while I was in Italy this year, my best friend died in her sleep and I had to continue on the trip because I was leading a group. That thoughtfulness went way beyond anything i would have expected from even the best villa agency.
What did you dislike about our service?
There was nothing to dislike, so I congratulate you!

The speed at which you responded. From my initial e-mail to Sean inquiring about the property right to the very end your response time was outstanding. Fast friendly service is a definite plus especially to Americans who want everything yesterday if you know what I mean.
No problems, good directions. Your company is doing it right as far as I am concerned.

Michela,
I want to thank you for all your recommendations and correspondance with me
before the trip. It certainely added a lot and helped make a really special
trip for us. All you recommendations were great (parking at the stadio
helped us a couple times in Siena)
We are  very pleased with To-Tuscany and the service provided (I'm sure
you've heard about our dissatisfaction about the pool not working, but that
falls with the owner of La Casetta not To-Tuscany in any way). I'm sure we
will book through you again
La Casetta, all in all, was a great choice for us. THe property was
beautifully mained, and the house very nice. THe location was perfect for
exploring the many villages and cities. Thank you for helping to choose that
particular villa.
I look forward to working with you again in the future.
Regards,
Anna-Sigga 

Dear Sean,
Thank you for all your assistance over the two years we planned our trip to Radda in Chianti.  For us, it was well worth the wait.  We fell in love with the town of Radda.  It is not a "tourist" town. It felt like home.  The butcher, wine merchant, fruit vendor, ceramicist, despite the fact that we speak no Italian, made us feel welcome.  Your restaurant suggestions were excellent, accurate, and appreciated.  Tom especially loved San Sano.  I thought Volpaia and La Vigne in Radda were exceptional.  Thank you again.
But, most of all the Soldani family are friendly, generous hosts.  The Casa Ceperano was immaculate.  Sarah was always there and helpful when needed.  You may have heard that one of our sons had his possessions stolen from their rental car on the outskirts of Rome.  Sarah helped  replace their rental car with Thrifty in Florence, directed them to malls and shops where they could buy replacement possessions, and was just very kind and thoughtful.  Our only disappointment was that we could not have Sarah cook for the family while we were there.  So, of course my sons are talking that we must go back soon!
Thank you again for a memorable vacation in beautiful Tuscany.

We LOVED our stay at Montefiore!! The Pesci villa was just perfect for us!
Here are my answers to your questions:
What did you like about our service?
The customer service we received was outstanding! Any question I had was promptly answered (even from representatives in Britain, when necessary), and every request given consideration. I was extremely pleased with the level of detail in the information that was provided to us....especially since this was our first trip to Italy!
What did you dislike about our service?
Driving directions to Montefiore could have been more detailed.....we had some difficulty finding it, but it was also our first day driving in Italy! After the week of driving around the region, I think we probably would have been more "successful!"
Please offer some suggestions to improve our website
I loved it! And I loved the level of detail (especially specific details about what would be available in the surrounding villages, etc.)
