About Us

Welcome to Hidden Italy!
Are you looking to rent a house or a villa in Italy? For a couple, a family or a group of friends? In search of that special atmosphere? A place that combines the poetry of yesterday and the comfort of today? At Hidden Italy you will find it. 

Hidden Italy is a small and personally run travel agency based near Bonn/Germany. We are specialized in the rental of historic Italian villas and apartments throughout Italy.


Our story
In 1995 we started our company with one villa in Tuscany, since then the number of properties we have been offering has increased considerably. With 25 years of experience in holiday property lettings behind us, we are now able to offer more than 200 rentals across Italy. We represent a great collection of exclusive private homes: skilfully converted farmhouses, cosy cottages, romantic apartments, elegant villas, grand palazzos and sumptuous medieval castles. These properties are located in unmatched settings in some of the most stunning regions in Italy: in Tuscany, Umbria, Veneto, on Lake Como and Lake Maggiore, on the Italian coast from Portofino (Liguria) to the Amalfi Coast (Campania) down to Sicily.

On a personal note, you might like to know that Hidden Italy was founded by Bettina Röhrig, who studied history of art in Bonn, Florence and Rome. We inspect all of our holiday homes personally and make certain that they remain in first-rate condition. We favour historic properties with atmosphere, charm and character.


Why us?
We offer authenticity: Most of the homes in our portfolio have a distinct historic value. They are imbedded in century old estates and belong to old Italian families deeply rooted in Italian history. Therefore our guests can savour the authentic Italian life and can enjoy the atmosphere of true Italian hospitality that will make you feel instantly at home.

We provide extraordinary accommodations: We know that beautiful décor and comfortable furnishings are very important in making a holiday unforgettable. We focus on comfortably and tastefully designed interiours in harmony with the property’s authentic charm and individual personality.

We work transparently: We collect guest reviews. You can see reviews for many of our properties clicking the button "Guest Reviews" in their web page. 

We work closely with our guests: Working with a small staff makes us flexible and fast. We consult you throughout the process of selecting a home in order to make the right choice. We welcome every question asked, whether it is about a particular house, the location or area in which you are interested, or any of the many other services that we can provide, and promptly provide straightforward, well-informed answers.

Hidden Italy and the estate owners offer a lot of services from which you can choose: These services and the cost differ from one house to the other. For example at many villas we can arrange for an arrival dinner after a long trip, we can fill the larder with the initial shopping items, a cook can prepare lunches and dinners for you, extra cleaning help can be provided, as well as other services such as car rentals, museum ticket reservations and much more. We are confident that this service is the primary reason why so much of our business comes from returning customers and their friends.
