Welcome to Bridgewater’s Idyllic Italy
Handpicked luxury villa rentals in Italy
Discover the very best of this must-visit destination with a stay in one of our luxury villas in Italy.
Bridgewater is one of the UK’s longest established Italian villa rental agents. Our story began in 1973 when our parents Barry and Christine Pearson began renting villas in Versilia, on Tuscany’s golden coast. We’re still very much a family company and we appreciate how important the human approach can be when organising something as special as a holiday – for this reason we handle each enquiry on an individual basis. No call centres, just 1:1 personal service with highly experienced Italian travel experts who have a passion for Italy and giving you great service
We were born in to the Italian travel industry and it has been a part of our daily lives ever since. We’ve lived and worked between Italy and the UK for over four decades, so nobody knows this wonderful country better than we do. Even after all this time – this wonderful country never fails to delight us with each new visit. You can learn more about our heritage and story so far here.
We travel to Italy several times a year and return to Lucca & the Tuscan coast every summer with our own families so can give you first-hand personal advice on the areas and regions we feature . We have lots of experience of driving to Italy from the UK with small children and teenagers and happy to share tips on routes and keeping everybody happy 🙂
We handpick our villas based on their character, charm and location to make sure your holidays are memorable. Most of the properties on our site are bookable online. Every property in our portfolio is included on merit alone and none of the properties pay a fee to be featured. This means that we can offer helpful, impartial advice to find the right villa for you. We have visited the vast majority of villas on our website. If we haven’t visited your villa of choice, we will find out the necessary information from a trusted contact on your behalf, saving you precious time
In addition to the villas featured on our site which you can view here, we also offer a bespoke villa sourcing service which is perfect if you are looking for something special or have specific requirements – read more about our villa sourcing service
Thank you for stopping by – we look forward to assisting you with your Italian villa holiday and sharing our expertise.
