Hi, my name is Dan Wrightson and I run "Invitation to Tuscany Ltd."
We have been finding beautiful villas to rent in Tuscany and beyond for nearly 40 years. We pride ourselves on handpicking and vetting all our villas with personal, regular visits. Select your favourite destination or villa type below, safe in the knowledge we've been there and checked it all out for you. If you have any questions get in touch and we'll be right back to answer your questions.
Invitation to Tuscany provide an absolutely fantastic personal service. Dan went out of his way to come up with the perfect options to suit our dates and our family. Both villas we stayed in were beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. We had the best holiday in Tuscany. Will definitely use Invitation to again.P. Bensberg staying in Pagliaio. Jul 2020
Myself and my wife stayed at Casa Guelfi and Ponte Romano during the first two weeks of August 2020 and could not have had a better holiday! What beautiful villas and seamless, utterly professional service from Dan. Thank you Dan for having us, and for making our holiday so memorable! Invitation to Tuscany is a must visit destination for access to some truly special places.T. Mc Kenna staying in Casa Guelfi. Aug 2020
I had a fantastic experience with Invitation to Tuscany - and an even more beautiful stay in the Casina Moresca! I really loved the easy communication and the dedication and eye for detail of Dan the owner. We felt very welcomed, always cared for and extremely happy to have indulged in this experience! Totally recommendable and we will be back for sure!C. Stadlinger staying in Casina Moresca. Sep 2020

Villa holidays are special occasions and we love to make sure they are.
We choose our villas on character, charm and location to make sure your holidays are memorable. We inspect each and every villa we list and we know the areas well - the best way to find your perfect villa is to ask for our specialists' advice. We can ring you to discuss your needs - just get in touch.
Invitation To Tuscany is the original Tuscan villa specialist. We’ve lived and worked here for nearly four decades, so nobody knows the region better than us. We started in 1982 and soon became famous for our brochures, illustrated with drawings and watercolours - you can see many of the original paintings here: Invitation to Tuscany Brochure Covers.
As a small family company, we get to know every property, owner and customer individually. That means we look beyond the number of bedrooms and bathrooms to help find the ideal holiday home for you. You can book quickly online if you like, but we prefer to have a chat.
Once we know what you want from your holiday – whether it’s to relax by the pool, go wine-tasting, see hilltop villages or even enjoy a bit of nightlife – we can then steer you to the most suitable properties. And we’ll also tell you if one you have your eye on might not be right for your needs.
We’re still very much a family company. My mother retired in 2005, when I took over, while my sister Sally manages the books. My wife Sam and our two children help me scout out properties. Plus we have a small team of long-serving staff who help in our offices in London and Tuscany, and a handful of agents around the world who know our villas inside and out.
Unlike many villa companies, we thoroughly inspect every property on our site. And while our listings vary from charming small houses in village centres to luxurious Tuscan estates amid the vineyards, I have a rule – if my family feels uncomfortable there, I won’t list it. We want people to relax in our villas, not panic if they spill a bit of olive oil on the table.
Our holiday homes might be beautiful, but they’re also excellent value for money. We have such strong connections to the region and long-lasting relationships with our owners that we get the best deals for our customers. And because we’re members of the Association of British Travel Organisers to Italy (ABTOI) you know you can trust that we’ll take care of any problems that might arise.
After you’ve booked, we don’t just send you on your way. From the moment you reserve your villa right until you return home, you’ll have access to our free concierge service. Our knowledgeable staff can help with anything from finding train times, arranging airport transfers and babysitters to suggesting local cafés, sunset spots and Italian cooking classes.
Whether you’re travelling as a couple or having a family gathering of 65 people, give us a call. We’d love you to have a taste of the good life too.
