There is nothing that compares to Villa Collalto

Dear Isabella,
Our week at Villa Collalto has unfortunately come to an end.
We, our family and friends enjoyed the week so very much and we will all have beautiful lasting memories.

We appreciate your help and guidance over the last few months in helping us achieve our dream Tuscan celebration and unforgettable time.

Villa Collalto is a magical place in the wonderful Tuscan hills which we were privileged to enjoy. While Australia is also a wonderful place, there is nothing that compares to Villa Collalto. You must be very proud to have such a home.
N……… and I appreciated and very much enjoyed seeing you on Saturday and Wednesday. Your presence made the occasion even more special. Under the management of Matthew we were treated so well with great attention to detail and excellent and caring service, he is a great ambassador for the Villa.

As you know N……… and I love Italy and our week made this love even stronger.

We look forward to seeing you in a Rome again on our next visit and would love to host you in Australia and should you ever come to Melbourne it would be our privilege.

Thank you so much.

Kindest regards

J. C.

A lifetime memory

Hello Isabella!

I can’t believe it’s only been a week since we checked out! Everyone wishes we were all still at Villa Collalto.

I can’t thank you and the team there enough for the week of great memories you helped create. The service was impeccable, the food was amazing, the entertainment you helped arrange for each evening was unbelievable, and of course the Villa itself is breathtaking! The fireworks on the last night were spectacular and it certainly ended the week with a “bang”. We were also pleased to learn that some of the staff had never seen live fireworks before, so we helped them create memories too.

I have had so much positive feedback from our group since we returned to Canada. They were all taken by the whole week and you helped me create lasting memories for everyone. M……… was so surprised and she claims she didn’t notice a single detail missing, and that’s because you and your team managed to cover off every detail!

You have a beautiful property, with the right mix of modern changes to make it still feel 1200 years old!

It was a pleasure working with you to plan for the event, and I’m so glad I met you and that we all spent time with you and your mother. Thank you again for everything you did to help make it such a fantastic week and a lifetime memory for all of us!


A wonderful experience

Dear Isabella,

It was such a pleasure to meet you and your mother at Villa Collalto.  Our stay at the Villa was a wonderful experience and it was such an ideal setting for M………’s birthday celebration. I can not praise Mathew and the staff enough, including Maria, for the wonderful service they gave us during our stay.  They really made us feel at home and we felt extremely taken care of for the week spent there.  The musicians were a great addition to the festivities of the party as well.  They were extremely versatile in their selection of music and were very gracious in satsfying everyone’s requests.

We are back at home now and missing Italy very much.  So sorry that we didn’t get a chance to connect while in Rome.  Some other friends from Honolulu were there at the same time and our time there was very brief

Thanks again for a wonderful stay.  So glad to have met you and hope that we can connect next time in Rome and get to know each other better.

I am going to copy M……… this email as he would like to keep in touch with you as well.

All the best,

L. C .

The best decision I ever made

Again, I want to say how wonderful our stay was at Villa Collalto.
My family is still raving about it.
After picking my husband, and having children, sponsoring our family reunion was the best decision I ever made.  Thank you.

Regards, Lisa

It far exceeded my wildest dreams

Magical – Perfect in detail – exquisite decor – stately – truly tuscan

Villa is a 5 Star from all aspects – the service is very friendly, accommodating and impeccable – the decor is the best of old elegance Tuscan – refined – palatial – every room was exquisitely appointed – the location was fabulous for day trips to Sienna and Florence as well as magnificent countryside and local restaurants and wineries.
A world of quiet refined luxury and opulence for the eye and senses

It far exceeded my wildest dreams and far surpassed any expectations – I felt as if I had reincarnated as an Italian royal

It was beyond expectation

It was beyond expectation.

3 weeks of a magnificience of living, dining, and laughing; surrounded by a manager, owner, chef, and complete staff whose sole purpose was to ensure our complete satisfaction.
Through highly troubled with flights being cancelled, rooms being changed, additional people remaining, additional people coming before schedule, their professionalism in handling all these unpredicted calamities was to them a small pebble in a large ocean.
They were fantastic and made everyday perfect for all of us.
Yes, 75 overly happy people.

I wish we could go back tomorrow and stay longer!

Hi P., Sorry not to answer earlier…I had no time to e-mail while in Italy…..too many fun things to do!

We had a wonderful time…the wedding day was perfect!

Everything arrived on schedule and as expected. Even the weather cooperated…..a gorgeous evening!

The villa was beautiful and the staff was very helpful and eager to please.

The food was just incredible…I think we all gained 10 pounds!

Thanks so much for all your help along the way…I wish we could go back tomorrow and stay longer!

The vacation was excellent

On the whole the vacation was excellent.
The villa was absolutely stunning – the owner Isabella was charming . Her staff were very friendly .
The swimming pool was fantastic as we were there during a heatwave and the indoor facilities – the lounge, pool room etc were much appreciated.  The bedrooms were all equally lovely – and cool – so no family squabbles there.

A wonderful experience that we will all remember

Dear Isabella,

My family’s week at Villa Collalto was absolutely wonderful.  We had such a great time.  The villa is really beautiful and spacious enough that we were all very comfortable and happy.  The staff took very good care of us and were very sweet.  The meals were supurb and it was such a treat to be able to seat us all together outside.  That was one of the things I was looking for when I began to plan the trip—common space where we could all gather together.

I enjoyed meeting you so much.  Thank you for being there when we arrived and arranging for the excellent lunch (I’m afraid you worked too hard).  I was sorry that it didn’t work to get together while my daughter and her family and I were in Rome.  I would have loved to see you again and have a little more time to visit.  But we were invited to have dinner at the home of my son David’s friends that Tuesday night (the night you said you were coming back) and on Wednesday we had a full day’s tour with a Vatican guide of the Vatican Museum, St. Peter’s and the Castello.  When we returned to the apartment we were dead tired, still had a whole lot of packing to do, and were being picked up by a driver to go to the airport at 6:30 the next morning.  I hope there will be an opportunity to see you again sometime in the future.  In the meantime, plese accept my thanks for all you did to help make my family reunion at Villa Collalto a wonderful experience that we will all remember.

All the best to you,
Ann G.

We do not stop talking about this wonderful week

Cara Isabella,
Is, IO lo so qui o prenduto molto tempo per scrivere a voi…..
Tanti a passato doppo Collalto!
Ma una cosa e certa: non possiamo aterizare de questa setimana in terra e in realita
Now let me change to English because I am sure that my Italian spelling is full of mistakes.
Of course we do not stop talking about this wonderful week (the whole group) and at least half of the Israelis are jealous.
We look at the pictures on and on and smile with so good memories. As a matter of fact yesterday I finally set with a woman that is going to design the album for us and gave her the right instructions. I’ll probably have it by mail (it will take time) and I promise to send it to you.
How are you and your bella mama? Please send her all our love.
Again I personally want to tank for all you have done together with A……, A….., R….., H……, C….. to make this week one of the most beautiful in my life. It cannot compete with my marriage, the birth of my children and of course the birth of L…… my grandson which you know well all of them.
So hope to see you sometime in the near future and don’t forget, if you ever come to visit in Israel you are our guests.
All the best and baccios,
