Villas in Tuscany & Beyond

Villas in Tuscany & Beyond


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 and we have some of the best villas in Tuscany in our catalogue.

You'll see some paintings dotted around the website, these are my paintings of the area that I have been doing for over 40 years as I visit the houses and the area. You can see more of them, some for sale, here:

Why book with us?

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.

Hand-picked villas

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. 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.


Self-catering villas are a green way to holiday and that ethos runs through our company. We started 40 years ago from a self-sufficient farm in Tuscany and still carry the same values. This website runs on Green servers, powered by the wind.

Personal Care

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.

“ Fantastic Personal Service ”

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.

“ Utterly Professional Service ”

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.

“ Dedication and eye for detail ”

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!
