Our Clients Testimonials

  • We have just returned from Rome and although we have visited Italy before and love the county and it's people, this was the first time we have booked with Bridgewater. I would like to thank you for your excellent service. Our apartment was delightful and exceeded our expectations. Thank you for an excellent holiday, now we have discovered you we will most certainly be booking future holidays with Bridgewater.

  • I have used many travel agents over the years and Bridgewater Travel ranks amongst one of the best. A total delight and pleasure to deal with, they listened to my needs and we had probably one of the best holidays ever. I would recommend them without any hesitation.

  • Hi Nicola,

    We will not likely be returning next year as there is lots of the world left to see. But we will definitely keep you on our radar for future trips and I have passed on your information to friends who are interested. You and Lucy were wonderful to work with!

  • We had a fantastic holiday at La Limonaia. The villa was absolutely beautiful and our group of 16 were well looked after by the staff at Bridgewater’s idyllic Italy. Nicola made various excellent recommendations, one of which was a chef who came to the property and cooked a delicious meal. I would highly recommend this villa and Bridgewater’s idyllic Italy! Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

  • Hello Nicola

    I just want to let you know we had a wonderful stay at Villa Castelli.  Perfect location, not far from airport for the wee baby and toddler, but in the hills with lovely views.  Very spacious and comfortable. The huge gym was a great bonus and I found the heated pool warm enough even after one day of copious rain. Thank you for your help with directions. We needed them and with them found it without difficulty. We had a terrific catered meal in their pupose built private estate dining room after a short walk through the vinyard and wine tasting. Babies came too. Truly memorable way to celebrate turning 65/70.
