About Us

Chrissie SailingWe, Chrissie and David, live in one of Italy’s most beautiful valleys, only 20 minutes north of Perugia.   We chose this area on account of its unique natural beauty, stunning views and proximity to Umbria’s wonderful hill towns.  Our love of Italian food, wine and the way of life prompted our move to Italy more than 12 years ago and we are keen to share this passion for all things Italian.

Chrissie is from Cambridge, England and prior to moving to Italy, worked as a chartered accountant  in Europe, Asia and Australia.
She is a keen walker and water sports enthusiast and recently completed her sailing license in Italian and loves to relax on Lake Trasimeno.   She is also very proud of her small herd of Alpacas.

David is from a farming background in rural Australia and worked in stockbroking, hospitality and the wine industry in Australia.  He taught business and academic English in schools and companies and worked as a Cambridge University Language examiner upon arriving in Italy. He is currently managing a vineyard in our local area and especially enjoys the tastings.




We specialize  in managing and renting  a select  portfolio of unique properties  in our local area.   We pride ourselves on looking after our guests during their stay in Umbria and making sure they get the most out of their time here.

We believe it is this unique service that we provide to all our clients that makes us successful, with the majority of our clients coming from word of mouth recommendations and many clients returning year after year.

Our clients know that they can be sure of our continued support from the moment they make their first enquiry until they are safely back home.  We like to go the extra step in making sure our guests enjoy their holiday to the utmost, from ensuring guests are aware of that special local festival on during their stay, getting the right table at the best local restaurants and the attractions to visit.
