Hi, my name is Dan Wrightson and I run "Invitation to Tuscany Ltd."
We have been finding beautiful villas to rent in Tuscany and beyond for nearly 40 years. We pride ourselves on handpicking and vetting all our villas with personal, regular visits and we have some of the best villas in Tuscany in our catalogue.
You'll see some paintings dotted around the website, these are my paintings of the area that I have been doing for over 40 years as I visit the houses and the area. You can see more of them, some for sale, here: danwrightson.com
Invitation To Tuscany is the original Tuscan villa specialist. We’ve lived and worked here for nearly four decades, so we know the region very well.
As a small family company, we get to know every property, owner and customer individually. That means we look beyond the number of bedrooms and bathrooms to help find the ideal holiday home for you. And because we’re members of the Association of British Travel Organisers to Italy (ABTOI) you know you can trust that we’ll take care of any problems that might arise.
Self-catering villas are a green way to holiday and that ethos runs through our company. We started 40 years ago from a self-sufficient farm in Tuscany and still carry the same values. You can read our Sustainability principles here.
After you’ve booked, we don’t just send you on your way. From the moment you reserve your villa right until you return home, you’ll have access to our free concierge service. Our knowledgeable staff can help with anything from finding train times, arranging airport transfers and babysitters to suggesting local cafés, sunset spots and Italian cooking classes. You can read what our clients think in our reviews or in the independent UpFront reviews here.
Whether you’re travelling as a couple or having a family gathering of 65 people, give us a call. We’d love you to have a taste of the good life too.
We were so pleased with Dan and Invitation to Tuscany. He helped me to select the perfect villa for my vacation with my extended family, and the property was exactly as had been described on the website and in my communications with Dan. We felt much more comfortable using Invitation to Tuscany as opposed to AirBnb or a similar service. We will certainly keep them in mind for future vacations!J.P. staying in Amorosa . Jun 2022
We’ve just returned after our wonderful holiday in Italy and it couldn’t have been better. The house was exactly as described, if not better, and ItT were extremely helpful throughout the whole booking/holiday process. Thanks very much !Roger P from UK staying in Casa Guelfi . Jul 2022
Dan was an absolute delight to work with as we planned our destination wedding in Tuscany. His intimate knowledge of each property and expert guidance on the region proved invaluable as we attempted to coordinate villa accommodations for 80+ guests with different housing requirements, preferences and budgets. He was extremely accommodating and flexible when COVID placed our wedding plans on hold for a year and our guest count dramatically shrank, requiring us to reconfigure our accommodations. We were finally able to hold our destination wedding in September of 2021 with 50 friends and family members, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome — it exceeded our expectations and was truly the best week of our lives!Gary & Mike staying in Montestigliano .

Myself and my wife stayed at Casa Guelfi and Ponte Romano during the first two weeks of August 2020 and could not have had a better holiday! What beautiful villas and seamless, utterly professional service from Dan. Thank you Dan for having us, and for making our holiday so memorable! Invitation to Tuscany is a must visit destination for access to some truly special places.T. Mc Kenna staying in Casa Guelfi . Aug 2020
Dan and the team at Invitation to Tuscany are superb. The agency is responsive, factual in its representations and provide a great service. I have used them twice over the past few years to book in Tuscany and both holidays were filled with unforgettable memories. If you are considering booking, I can only say “do it, you will not second guess or regret the decision once there!P. Cripps and family staying in Casa Allioni . Aug 2021
Invitation to Tuscany provide an absolutely fantastic personal service. Dan went out of his way to come up with the perfect options to suit our dates and our family.

I had a fantastic experience with Invitation to Tuscany - and an even more beautiful stay in the Casina Moresca! I really loved the easy communication and the dedication and eye for detail of Dan the owner. We felt very welcomed, always cared for and extremely happy to have indulged in this experience! Totally recommendable and we will be back for sure!C. Stadlinger staying in Casina Moresca . Sep 2020
A really professional travel company with some great accommodation. Very flexible and helpful when it came to the challenges during the summer of COVID-19. Will definitely use again and would highly recommend.D. Archbold staying in Castelonchio . Jul 2020
I have been travelling to Tuscany for holiday through Invitation toTuscany for around 15 years now and I would never ever do anything different. If you want to stay in an authentic Tuscan villa this is the only company to use. Daniel - son of the founders Alan & Susan runs this business professionally and cares deeply about all of his clients. This is always shown if ever there are issues, with a personal touch second to none. I cannot recommend Invitation To Tuscany highly enough, indeed I have recommended them to many friends over the years. Highly Recommended!J.K. and family from UK staying in Villa di Mezzo . Sep 2021
