With over 20 years experience in historic building renovations, David & Gary combine their skills to create your ideal vacation (holiday) home.

Le Marche is home to an abundance of medieval properties in towns and villages, as well as country homes which usually need restoring and renovating when a new owner takes one on.

Our ethos is to repair rather than replace, making your home appear as if it has aged well. This also ensures that you won’t have to spend a fortune in bringing new life to the beautiful period features in your Italian casa.
