Looking Back, Looking Ahead + a Christmas Giveaway
What a year it has been at Villa Pia. Indeed, what an exciting few years. As we approach a brand new decade, we’ve taken time to reflect on some highlights. We are proud to have welcomed hundreds of lovely families, new and returning, to our award-winning Tuscan holiday retreat.
Family Holiday Testimonials and Reviews
It delights us to receive so many fantastic family holiday testimonials. Special mention goes to our hardworking staff, who are very much part of the Villa Pia family.
We are thrilled by the coverage we’ve had from top journalists and bloggers from the UK and Europe. You can read two of the latest blogger reports here and here. Take a look at some more of our holiday reviews.
Retreats at Villa Pia
In recent times, we have also introduced a number of retreats and group excursions. Villa Pia offers anything from art and yoga, to philosophical talks and lessons in rock guitar!
Anniversaries and Milestones
It has been our pleasure to host your special celebrations. Our super creative staff works hard to put all the finishing touches on some stunning Italian weddings at the villa.
In 2016, Villa Pia celebrated a milestone 20th Anniversary at Bocca di Lupo in London, where we caught up with old friends and shared some wonderful memories. In 2018, The Guardian newspaper voted Villa Pia as one of the Top 20 Family Summer Holidays in Europe!
Looking Ahead to Villa Pia 2020 (and beyond)
So what does 2020 hold for us here at the villa? It’s hard to say, especially with Brexit imminent and what feels like some major cultural shifts happening in the UK and across Europe.
What we can affirm is that we will always be an open, inclusive space for families of all descriptions, particularly for new mothers desperately seeking a proper break. We are proud of our Anglo-Italian connections and no matter who you are, or where you come from, you can find a home away from home at Villa Pia.
Here’s wishing our readers a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year. To more family, fun and feasting!
