Founded in 2002 by brother and sister team Ian Styan and Helen Forbes, Essential Italy came into being through their mutual love of Italian holiday escapes. They wanted to capture and share with others their own personal experiences of warm Tuscan evenings and provide a holiday company offering hands-on, friendly and professional service. They have been joined by a team of locally-living experts to make sure your holiday is the perfect Italian getaway.
