A few words from Luca...

Hello!  My name is Luca and I guess that if we were a large corporation you could call me the "CEO" of Summer In Italy.

Instead we are proud to be a small business, focused on the happiness of our customers, so just call me Luca. ;-)

In 1995 my mom was teaching at her school in Salerno, Italy, when a colleague of hers asked whether we would be willing to rent our summer house in the Cilento National Park to her sister Sandra and her brother-in-law from Germany.  After a brief consultation within the family we gladly agreed, and that year our German guests spent a few weeks in our villa in Perdifumo.

Much to our surprise, in 1996 we received a phone call from Sandra, asking whether we would agree to rent our villa again, this time for a longer period.  She had talked about Cilento to some friends and they wanted to spend their summer there.

The year after that we had to ask friends and relatives if they wished to rent their own summer villas, as we could not accommodate all the people who were calling to ask for a nice house near the seaside.  And so we started managing their properties...

For five years we based our activity exclusively on word-of-mouth, satisfying more and more guests every year.  Also, year after year new friends kept asking us to manage their villas.  In response to these increased demands, we have setup this web site in 2001.

At we are proud to present our selection of beautiful villas and apartments in some of the most charming vacation spots in Italy: the Amalfi Coast, Capri, Sorrento, the Cilento National Park, Tuscany, Umbria, Lake Como...

I would like to invite you to browse our properties and visit this magical land where we live.  I'm sure you will remember this trip for the rest of your life!

"Great service, attentive and friendly. Spending a large sum of money via an unknown website can be daunting but I never felt in anyway that it would be unsafe. A great selection of villas, a really good website and lots of helpful info too."

Mark Collin, Preston, United Kingdom


"Summer In Italy is a marvelous organization of travel experts, with virtually instant availability. Your web site is oustanding; your advice is thoughtful and consistently reliable. From my initial contact, through the rental agreement and confirmation process, you provided comprehensive information and thorough directions. You did not leave one stone unturned or one question unanswered. We felt very much at home and never 'alone' in the event that we needed help or had any questions."

Linda Lang, Bethesda, MD, USA


"We just returned from our trip, and it was wonderful. Suite Regina was very nice and the view onto the Mediterranean was magnificent. Everything went so smoothly, greatly in part to your organization, Summer in Italy. Thank you so much, and I will be referring friends and family to your website in the future."

Charles Ariz, Cheyenne, WY, USA
