Designing Italy

Our trip to Rome, Tuscany, Florence and Venice was absolutely wonderful. The accommodations Ginger recommended and booked for us were all in great locations and staffed with super people! The two private tours we took in Rome and Venice were the perfect way to get introduced to the cities in a way we could not have done on our own. Ginger took time to talk with us and made recommendations that made this trip a great European experience for our teenage daughters and for ourselves. We definitely recommend her expert services!

Villa in Umbria


Elegant, cozy, and distinctive, this Villa in Umbria has been lovingly restored, retaining its original charm and adding the most modern comfort, amenities, and convenience. When you come up the road, you will see a place that could be on the front cover of "House Beautiful." Surrounded by dramatic terraces and artist-designed gardens, the house sits on a hill with views of a peaceful countryside-farmhouses, vineyards, olive groves, woodland edged with wildflowers, and rich pastures. This villa is a personal house, with a special charm and lots of room for you to feel the peace and pleasure of your Italian adventure.
