About Merrion Charles

Having worked for many years in the luxury travel industry, organising every variety of trip to Italy, be it walking tours in Sicily, private villas in Tuscany, ski guiding in the Dolomites or romantic tailor-made honeymoons, I finally came to live here in 2007. In 2008 I set up my own consultancy and have Italian citizenship. I live with Muffin, my lovely Welsh Terrier, who follows in the footsteps of MoJo, and accompanies me all over Italy researching and checking out new and existing destinations for my portfolio.

I am a fluent Italian-speaking British born Italian citizen, and Italy’s leading provider of special, tailor made holidays. I live in the hills of Northern Tuscany with Muffin, my lovely Welsh Terrier, who, following in MoJo’s paw prints, accompanies me all over Italy researching and checking out each and every element of my portfolio.

I set up my business in 2008 to provide a true 24/7 tailored concierge service drawing upon my extensive network of personal relationships with villa and hotel owners, guides, restauranteurs, chefs and wineries built over more than 30 years in the luxury travel industry.

My aim has been to provide clients with unique unforgettable experiences that I could recommend with absolute certainty having visited and approved every hotel and villa and, most importantly, their owners and local attractions. Please see my Testimonials page for more detail.

As I hope you can see, I love what I do  – I know Italy intimately –  and I look forward to helping you arrange your honeymoon, wedding, private villa, cookery course or ski safari very soon.
