More than twenty years ago, Margherita Bilenchi and Saffo Martelli created BRAVO Villas with the intent to offer prestigious accommodations in Italy – their homeland – combining their firsthand knowledge of the beauty and prestige of the Old World with the sensibility of the modern American lifestyle. Today, Saffo, in her role of Managing Director, still oversees all aspects of BRAVO Villas, the first and only Italian-managed villa rental company in the USA offering a unique collection of private vacation villas in selected sought-after Italian destinations. We invite you to browse our vetted selection of exclusive properties and let us indulge you.


For over twenty years, BRAVO Villas has been offering a high level of expertise in order to create memorable experiences in Italy. We focus on carefully evaluating and inspecting each villa before adding it to our portfolio – paying particular attention to American standards of comfort, and choosing only those properties that demonstrate a sense of style and place. Our professional team possesses deep knowledge about the villas and their surrounding areas, and, most importantly, is detailed-oriented and committed to impeccable service while crafting tailor-made villa vacations.
With BRAVO Villas, you will get insider tips and suggestions known only to locals, so you can vacation like Italian connoisseurs.
Once you consider who is curating your vacation, why book your villa with anybody else?
