We Make Dreams Come True...

Dream Italian Villas and Tours Logo

Distinctively Different

What does your Italian dream include?  A villa with your friends and family, or perhaps wonderful hotels, grand or quaint.  The romance of Venice, the fascinating history of Rome, and aaahhhh…the Amalfi Coast. Or-maybe a week or so in the wine country that is the heart of Italy.  Let us stitch your unique dream together. The sky is the limit.

If you prefer to spend an immersive week in one particular region, may we suggest our all-inclusive tours. These are tailored for those who want to explore the rich Italian culture in luxury, while staying in a villa.

Not a tour in the traditional sense — just 12 to 16 like-minded guests who want a seamless vacation with a private chef.  You will meet local artisans that will welcome you like family to their world of cheese, olive oil, and winemaking to name a few.  These experiences will further your intrigue of the Italians and their passion for life.  Your heart will be captured with memories to last a lifetime.

And if one week is not enough, we can recommend other areas to explore based on your particular interests.  We can also customize an all-inclusive package for your family and friends whether you want a villa, farmhouse, a quaint boutique hotel, or to visit several regions in Italy.

Or, may we suggest our new collection of tours offering you a B&B, or a boutique hotel while experiencing the same great tours from our villa program. This is best suited for those that want an ala carte vacation. These work well whether you want your own rental car, or a private driver.

I spent 30 years selling the world for 3 cruise lines, but now I offer you my first love, Italy.  I will introduce you to my Italian friends while making your dreams come true!

Buon Viaggio,

What others say about us

“The Tuscan experience was extraordinary! From the Villas’ decor and views from every room to outstanding cuisine by Chef Katie. Every excursion immersed us with the locals whether it was olive or wine tasting, or lunching at Festivals. We were truly off the beaten path. This cultural and culinary extravaganza went beyond our expectations of a Tuscan Villa vacation. Dream Villas is truly the perfect experience not to be missed in your lifetime.”
Margaret & Ian B.Former owners of TravelTST Top 10 Ensemble Travel in Canada
“Wow, we loved our villa experience and like cruising it fit our holiday style perfectly. The villa was a great venue to relax and socialize with friends. The included daily tours were well organized allowing us to explore the villages in the heart of the countryside. Meals prepared by our private chef Katie paired with local wine was the icing on the cake.”
Martin Gerretsen & Harvey StrydhorstCo-Founders of Sea Courses Cruises
The Tuscan Villa vacation was more than I ever imagined. It was the ultimate “foodie” tour. Our local tour guide was knowledgeable about the land and its agricultural offerings, and we enjoyed everything from local Tuscan wine, meat, olive oil and cheese to the exotic of local saffron spice. Chef Katie shared her wealth of culinary experience, and we enjoyed dinners cooked in the kitchen, the outdoor fire or the alforno oven. The Val D’orcia area is rural, peaceful and just the setting for a relaxing holiday.

The trip was so magical! The most amazing trip that we have ever taken! Your arrangements and scheduling and choices were so so perfect for us all. We absolutely loved RADDA and our hotel. We loved Paolo our guide on Monday all through Tuscany. We loved his knowledge and how he educated us on everything Chianti and Chianti Classico. We loved everywhere he took us! The tour and lunch at the Winery were so fun and delicious! We loved Bologna and our hotel! We especially loved and appreciated Natalie! She was such a delight. She was so knowledgeable about everything and was so fun and charming. This day touring the Parmesan Factory, winery, Balsamic Vinegar estate, and the family prosciutto factory will go down as one of the best days of all time. We enjoyed our time in Bologna and loved our train trip to Venice. We absolutely loved Hotel Kette in Venice and the location was perfect. We did everything and said no to nothing.
 We made amazing memories together…Moms and daughters….never to be forgotten or unappreciated by us and by our daughters. We have you to thank for this amazing itinerary and tour preparation. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!
