Italian Encounters provides a small, choice selection of very special places to stay in Tuscany and Umbria. We created Italian Encounters after restoring our own home in Tuscany during the early 1990s and continue to personally manage our family business which specialises in this magical aprt of Italy. The family say we have a cool boutique company! Our properties include castles, cottages, villas, towers and farmhouses and provide a range of accommodation from romantic hideaways for two people to palatial palazzos for families and friends. They are all located in stunning rural settings and all have something special. We really look forward to helping your realise your Italian dream.
