Hi Christine, Nicola and Lucy,

Just a quick note to thank you for finding us such the beautiful Villa Ravello. It is a really special villa and worth every penny. It is in a fabulous location and the views are the most beautiful of any hotel or villa we have ever stayed in. We normally would avoid booking a villa with staff who live in but the housekeeper and gardener have been lovely and we keep getting supplied with freshly made cakes and home grown fruits. We only came to Italy as a last minute holiday as we were due to go to the Far East for a month but our daughter broke both her arms two days before we were due to travel. However I cannot imagine that that holiday could possibly match this fabulous week.

We had planned to go to the Maldives next summer but we now want to go Italy again. Thanks again for your help.

Kind regards

It is rare to find a place better than you expect. The Villa Pieve di Camaiore is really lovely; spacious, well- designed and more comfortable than its pictures led us to believe. The decor is delightful and the garden and pool really large and well-maintained. I would definitely book it again. The location is excellent too.

Mrs Simon. August 2014

Pietrasanta on the Tuscan coast is every bit as good as Christine, Nicola & Lucy say it is & the hotel delightful. Booking in/out times are different perhaps to the villas which Bridgewater specialises in at 2pm & 11.39am respectively which is fantastic as it exposed us even more to the skeleton staff of 4 who were exceptional hosts; always welcoming and offering to help with ideas of where to visit & best mode of transport, sorting the courtesy bikes for local trips & train times, booking the same & restaurants. Notwithstanding Lucy's great choice & arranging of the vineyard/wine tasting visit (support needed for struggling/hardworking farmers like this) & to our meal at "Vaticano".

Dear Christine, Lucy and Nicola

Thank you very much for your assistance in booking our Italian holiday at Villa Stella. Giovanna was very helpful and the house was really great, it suited our needs perfectly. We enjoyed the location , being so close to the beach and shops and the kids loved riding the bicycles a really nice added extra. The whole process went very smoothly and I would highly recommend you and the villa for a family holiday. Thank you for all your assistance

Lucy, Christine & Nicola

We wanted to thank you for arranging our lovely holiday last week at Villa Stella. We travelled with you to Marina di Pietrasanta on three occasions in the 1990s so this was an opportunity for us to revisit old haunts and explore new ones. Sometimes it turns out to be an error to go back to places you have been before but this definitely wasn't one of those occasions. We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely go again. Thank you so much for all the care and attention you give to your clients. You provide a much more personal service that is really very appreciated by us. We will certainly recommend you to others (indeed have already done so) andI hope that we may visit with you again in the future.

I booked my family’s holidays in Tuscany with Bridgewater's Idyllic Italy and I am extremely happy with their service and support before and during our stay.
We stayed inVilla Pieve di Camaiorethat they recommended for us next to Camaoire. The villa is beautiful and very spacious and has amazing garden. The nature there is stunning and gave us the relaxed stress free holidays we needed. It is also very short drive from the beaches, Pietrasanta, Forte dei marmi and other nice towns to enjoy. Next to the villa there are two excellent pizzeria/restaurants for the evenings we didn’t feel like driving. I highly recommend Bridgewater Idyllic Italy for booking your holidays in Tuscany.

Ruslana Toncheva. Bulgaria. 2013

Probably the best property we have ever stayed in over 20 years of family holidays. Superb swimming pool and grounds, ideal for teens plus. (Villa Torre)

Mr Johnston. 2013

Thanks again for your help with the honeymoon, I was just talking about it today with a colleague who had been to Tuscany this summer too – wonderful memories.(Casetta San Terenzo)

Jenny King. 2012

Hi, back from lovely Pietrasanta and we enjoyed every minute. Lucy was very kind and came to find us on our first night at the little restaurant up the road as we had had a problem getting from the train station to the villa. (no taxis). Anyway she then very kindly collected us the next day and dropped us at the market and came to pick us up and took us to the bike place to hire bikes. So she really went the extra mile to help us. Carla and Nene were absolutley lovely and made us soooooo welcome. Nene event took us back to the station for our return journey. As you said the Coop was fantastic. So thankyou for all your help and hopefully we shall return.......Take care.....Elaine

Mrs Townsend. 2012

To the Pearson family, We just wanted to thank you for the effort you put into making our honeymoon so special. Thank you for the lovely flowers and for arranging an evening out for us. We will definitely be back and recommend you to our friends!(Villa le Terazze)

Sally & Mike. Aug 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at (Villa Le Terrazze).The house and pool area suited our vacation perfectly as other family members took over the downstairs, whilst my family had the upstairs. The lounge and dining area fitted the 8 of us with ease. The views were gorgeous and the villa quiet and peaceful.

Mrs Lisa Odendaal. Jul 2011

Dear Bridgewater, We wanted to say thank you for the arrangements made on our behalf during our stay in Tuscany (Pietrasanta Apartment Filippo). The apartment suited our needs perfectly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Pietrasanta.... You are right, it is indeed a special place. The attention provided by Lucy was much appreciated - you did a first class job.

Karen & Derek Newman

Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday. Pietrasanta is absolutely beautiful, and it was fantastic to sit in the main square and enjoy an Italian beer in the sun, with the view of the mountains in the distance, snow capped. We did, fortunately, find the central heating an asset as it did cool down at night. Thanks for everything.

Andrew and Jackie Walker.

Thank you for your note - and for the apartment. We have had a lovely time and were impressed by the general standard and equipment you provided us with. We will certainly came again and will let our friends know about you. This has been our first visit to Italy, a most memorable and pleasant stay - Thank you. Arriverderci

Sue and Craig Wood. Apartment Stagio Stagi

The property far exceeded our expectations. It was an amazing location!

Jayne Carter.

First time our children have been abroad. A wonderful well organised holiday. Thank you!

Mrs Lind.

Wonderful views from terrace, excellent owner's wine. Superb holiday!

Mr. Gawlik.

We have just returned from staying at one of your villas in Pietrasanta, Tuscany). It was fantastic! Many thanks for such a professional service, ranging from the ease of booking, prompt service, your friendly telephone reps, superb brochures and excellent information - especiallyLucy, your daughterat the Pietrasanta office. We will certainly recommend you to our friends and we hope to be back with you next year! Very, very impressive all round.

Paul and Anne Tandy.

Well it just gets better as the years go on doesn't it? We've been back a few weeks now and it hasn't worn off yet. That must say something. Thanks for sorting us out a villa, it was brilliant. We were able to to re-visit all our old haunts and were not disappoimted in the slightest. It is as magical as we remembered and the villa was spot on.

David and Val Wilson

You may be interested to note that I booked again for this year because, even though you were not the cheapest, I knew the quailty of your product having used you before. The lower prices elsewhere did tempt me but the quality is more important in the long run.

Mr A German.

This is a first class villa with a wonderful garden and pool in a stunning rural location - we loved every day we were there!

Richard Winter.

Thank you for a very enjoyable holiday. The welcome pack was great - the wine too. The villa was very comfortable!

Mrs Marroni

Again, many thanks for yet another wonderful holiday - everything was perfect - villa, setting - not to mention the company!

Mr & Mrs Connolly.

Thanks for the first class accommodation Bridgewater fixed for my family in Tuscany. Il Cerro proved ideal, not only in accommodation terms but also as a location. We couldn't have asked more of a house situated on an organic farm or it's owner Gloria, who provided a constant supply of tomatoes, pears & strawberries. Once again, many thanks for all your help and advice in helping make this a holiday to remember for my family.

John Maddock.

We have just returned from Rome and although we have visited Italy before and love the county and it's people, this was the first time we have booked with Bridgewater. I would like to thank you for your excellent service. Our apartment was delightful and exceeded our expectations. Thankyou for an excellent holiday, now we have discovered you we will most certainly be booking future holidays with Bridgewater.

Marlene, Keith & Matther Powley

A great holiday as usual!

Mr and Mrs Heath.

We have always enjoyed a very good experience with Bridgewater. Very friendly service and excellent properties.

Mrs Filmer-Sankey.
