Windows on Tuscany is a brand with over 27 years of experience in the market of prestigious apartments and luxury villa rentals in Italy. Its origin dates back to 1986, when Leonardo Ferragamo – from the fashion house Salvatore Ferragamo – created  Windows on Tuscany out of his love for the historical city of Florence and for its artistic heritage.

In 2007 the company became part of the group Windows on Europe.  The group was originated when Mr Ferragamo’s commitment to the luxury rental market found its perfect match with the expertise of Pietro Martani – current Managing Director – who already managed several rental agencies.
Built on solid and strong bases, Windows On Europe has shown to be a trustworthy group comprising other companies such as Rentxpress, Gentili e Roy and Halldis.


Stunning architecture, renaissance-style, vaulted and coffered ceilings, original 15th century frescoes and panoramic rooftop terraces make Windows on Tuscany villas luxuriously unique and exclusive. Antique furniture, valuable fabrics, and a timeless atmosphere combined with comfort and functionality are just some of the secret surprises customers find out when stepping in the main door. Every detail is carefully thought to enable customers to emerge in the city history, culture and art while encountering a true home experience.

Bringing together years of experience, specific knowledge and market expertise, we welcome you to browse through our extensive portfolio of prestigious villas which boasts also stunning outdoor pools and outstanding views over the Chianti vineyards, the typical Tuscan cypress lined hills, and the renowned Tuscan seaside.

Sophistication, exclusivity and comfort have been our guide values during the passionate and careful selection of properties throughout Italy. Cosy places where ancient characters harmoniously blend with modern travelers needs are the secret ingredients of a special stay which is offered as an valuable alternative to the hotel.
