We've been dreaming of summer holidays and this company where personalised attention to detail is a priority, has villas right up our street.

Catering for all budgets, tastes and group sizes, Bookings For You is an elegant website specialising in luxury holiday rentals in Italy and France. Jo Mackay launched the site in May 2011, inspired by a magical fortnight with her family in Italy. Her aim from the start was to offer her customers an exceptional level of service. Come what may – and as the business and Mackay’s passion for all things Italian have blossomed – this personalised attention to detail has remained a priority.

Here, we pick our favourite Bookings For You holidays.
