"I loved your calendar style itinerary. It really helped me visualize the week." Meryl S.

Couple enjoys an Umbrian Villa for a week.


Chris and Jim Kaspar have traveled many times to Italy but had never rented a villa for a week. Chris and I went to high school together and she contacted me to help find the perfect villa in Umbria for a base to explore the area. They loved taking day trips to small towns to explore the culture and countryside. Jim is an excellent photographer and has a small business James R. Kaspar ~ JRK Images and loves capturing the beauty of Italy and it's people and history.
