About Us

Kathy Perunic was born in New York and has been living in Tuscany since 1989.

Kathy Perunic“When I came to study in Florence over 20 years ago I fell in love with Tuscany (and with a nice Italian, today my husband). It was a magical year that changed my life. After receiving my BSFS from Georgetown University in Washington D.C, I decided to take the plunge and move to Italy. A few years later, I completed a degree in interior design and, together with my husband, bought an old farmhouse which we patiently renovated, turning what were ruins into a lovely home. This was an incredible experience that taught me so much about traditional Tuscan architecture and country living. Along the way, I learned to cook and speak like a native, and became a part of my local community, a small town outside of Florence.

A love for writing led me to become an editor and translator for Italian publishers, something that helped me perfect my linguistic skills and gave me extensive work experience in Italy.

However, traveling has always remained my passion, and the privilege of living in Tuscany means having some of the most amazing places at my doorstep. I have explored just about every corner of this stunning region and its beauty never ceases to impress me. Revealing its treasures to others and making them see why I chose to make Italy my home is an extremely satisfying experience. Over the years, it has been my pleasure to serve as a hostess for countless friends and family members during their visits to Tuscany, and I know for certain that one of the things they all appreciated was having someone "local" who could provide an inside glimpse of Italian life and culture.

Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to have a friend or relative living in Tuscany. This thought was exactly what sparked my idea for this company: what if travelers could borrow someone else's friend or relative to get an insider's perspective? I realized that I could be that person, using my experience to benefit those discerning travelers looking to discover the real Tuscany. By working with the best service providers and a staff of dedicated locals who share my vision and ideas, I can provide my clients with true Tuscan hospitality. Our goal is to offer travelers a unique and unforgettable stay, based on the "personal touch" we give to each vacation. This is what sets us apart from the others. Come be our guests, and let your next vacation be a new kind of experience in Tuscany!"
