“We want to let you know how wonderful our stay at Villa Veste was, how much we enjoyed the villa, how helpful the staff was, and to profoundly thank you, Adriana, for answering all the myriad of questions and last minute changes we had.  It was a vacation of a lifetime and all our friends and family who attended were in awe of the villa, the grounds, the staff and the food.  Thank you for gently nudging us in the right direction during our planning and our stay.  We can’t thank you enough!
We especially want to commend Michele – he was invaluable as a resource and problem solver. Every time a problem arose, even if I didn’t ask his help, he came up with a solution.  We were constantly whipping out our phones to use Google Translate and figure out what the conundrum of the day was.  On the last night, he staged a spectacular celebration of my husband’s birthday, at the table in the center of the moat, complete with “fireworks” candles, a speaker system and lighting that complimented the occasion.  It made the last night incredibly special and something we will always remember.
The villa is a work of art – we spend so much of our time there marvelling at the forethought and planning that went into making it such a special place.  From evenings spent on the porch to afternoons in the pools, to mornings at the breakfast tables, everything was so special and enjoyable – thank you, thank you, thank you for helping make our stay there so very fantastic!” Villa Vesta Guest,

“We had a wonderful stay in your Vivaldi apartment at 4 Rue Chapon. It was such a fantastic location. The apartment was spacious, quiet and very comfortable. Our greeter Michele was such a pleasant person and gave us such a warm welcome. She gave us loads of information about the area etc. The flowers and wine on arrival were a lovely touch.” – Vivaldi Guest, 

“My family and I stayed here the week of my wedding which was also hosted on the property with 70 guests. It is a BEAUTIFUL estate situated near two beautiful towns, Grottaferratta and Frascati. The villa and its grounds were breathtaking. The staff also helped make sure our every need was met and assisted with planning every wedding detail. One of the highlights was the groundskeeper, Michele (Michael), who lives on the property. He worked tirelessly to make sure everything was perfect and even provided transportation during our stay. He was exceptionally pleasant and helped with many last minute tasks – like taking my wedding dress to a local dry cleaner to be steamed! This was a once in a lifetime experience that was truly a fairy tale for me and my husband. Adriana with Commendable Rentals was also in constant communication and helped arrange last minute transportation and dining reservations like a pro! We wish we could live this experience all over again and will not soon forget our time at the villa!” – Villa Vesta Guest, 

“As two newbies to Uzes, we found Peta’s Place warm, welcoming, comfortable and centrally located. The exceptionally large chef’s kitchen was a delight as was the second story sun porch. We felt very safe and secure as two single women with never a worry walking home at night. The town itself was charming and the Saturday Market makes one long to purchase and cook the many culinary delights available. Thank you for a wonderful introduction to this area of France and a most enjoyable stay in this “funky” apartment.” Peta’s Place Guest, 

“Arriving at Chez Vous met me with the feeling of ‘coming home’. This was my second stay in this stunning apartment and could not have asked for better. The home is comfortable with beautiful furnishings, a perfectly stocked kitchen for those nights dining in and total peaceful bliss when unwinding from the day. Uzès and surrounding areas, were welcoming, kind and generous to us as we all conform to the current rules of travel. I have rented a few properties in the past represented by Commendable Rentals and never have experienced disappointment. I will return, hopefully sooner than later to “my home in France.” Thank you Susan. A bientot” Chez Vous Guest, 

“Tout était au rendez vous pour nous faire passer un très agréable moment, l’accueil par la charmante propriétaire, le lieu chargé d’histoire, sa déco superbe… nous avons adoré, nous recommandons vivement !” Chez Vous Guest, 

“We had a great week! It is a nice house which is nicely situated on the outskirts of the beautiful village of Sermoneta. The communication was fine and the price/quality ratio is good. Thanks for the nice week in your beautiful house. We had a great time. It is a beautiful house, well located in a beautiful village with a nice pool.” Domus Doull Guest, 

“Old apartment with a lot of charm in the center of Rome in a quiet street, with a lot of cafes and restaurants. All attractions are within 30 minutes reach by foot.” Timeless Rome Guest, 

“Le séjour fut à tout point de vue remarquable ! Nous avons été accueillis avec beaucoup d’attention et de prévenance et nous avons reçus toutes les explications indispensables pour passer le meilleur séjour possible. L’appartement est décoré avec énormément de soin et de goût. Il est à la fois moderne, confortable, très fonctionnel et parfaitement équipé. La literie est excellente, les deux salles de bain sont extrêmement agréables… Bref cet appartement est un véritable cocon. Il est en outre excellemment bien placé… dans un quartier de Venise avec beaucoup de charme et de caractère ; à quasiment 1 minute du traghetto qui permet de traverser aisément le grand canal, à 5 minutes environ d’une station de Vaporetto, et 5 à 7 minutes d’un supermarché de quartier où l’on trouve tout le nécessaire. Sa situation centrale permet en outre de rayonner dans l’ensemble des quartiers principaux de Venise en une quinzaine de minutes. Nous avons passons un séjour idéal dans un appartement qui a comblé absolument toutes nos attentes. Merci infiniment à nos hôtes pour la qualité irréprochable de leur accueil.” Clemente Guest, 

“We had the most extraordinary stay, the Convento is a dream we’d love to stay forever. Much love and appreciation” Il Convento Guest, 

“We came with all the family and had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. Very easy and central, the area is just incredible, not touristic yet very central and convenient to take boats (near the Academia bridge) and to walk around. Very nice restaurants below the property, on the Campo Santo Stefano. The hosts were great and everything went super smoothly. And we were with a baby and a stroller, and the two grandmothers, so the fact that there was a lift in the property was just incredible! The cherry on the cake 🙂 Thanks so much :-)” Tesoro Veneziano II Guest,

Perfect Italian Family Vacation:

“Last fall our family (Seventeen in all) enjoyed eleven unforgettable days at Castello di Pergolato. Upon our arrival we were greeted with friendly and professional staff. The property more than met our expectations, finding it well maintained, with museum quality furnishings yet comfortable and inviting. The delicious and extensive breakfast buffet every morning provided a wonderful start to the day, well worth the additional cost. Also, the beautiful dining room and lovely table setting, with a fire burning in the huge fireplace added to the ambiance. The property manager was on site each morning to oversee the daily operations of the castle, always available to answer questions, helpful in making restaurant reservations, and even called a doctor for a house visit… much appreciated, especially when not speaking the language. The highlight was the prearranged, four course, candlelight dinner for our family. It was an amazing meal and beautifully executed… again, “kudos “to the entire staff… truly, a magical night! The only negative was that the castle, although somewhat handicap accessible, was not suited for someone in a wheelchair, such as my husband. Portable ramps were provided for entering or exiting, but the castle’s interior had many challenges. In addition, there were a few “issues ‘the first night concerning the water temperature and the heart, but those problems were quickly resolved the following morning. In conclusion, Castello di Pergolato is a gem, with good location to Florence, defiantly a property we would highly recommend. A note of gratitude also goes to Susan Doull of Commendable Rentals LLC, who did an extraordinary job helping us in the selection of this unique Castle, as well as securing medical Equipment, obtaining a car van and driver (Elie) who became like family, and always promptly returned any calls. With much appreciation,” Castello Lorenzo Guest, 

“To make it short: there is absolutely nothing to complain about. Starting with the contact of the agency, handing over of the keys with the owner, cleanness, furnishing, sweet details etc… You really get the Kitzbühel alps feeling in this cosy hideaway!!!!!” New Kitzy Guest, 

“A brilliant place to stay! The interior is amazing and has a lot of character with various quirks and trinkets inside. It is a stunning house. Outside there is plenty of space which meant that various people could split up and it never felt crowded. The pool is lovely and big too. The town of Pitigliano which is only a short walk away is also perfect for going into for dinner or walk. The house, garden and location are spectacular!” Il Convento Guest, 

“Great accommodation and everything was perfect. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay (2 Adults/2 Teens). The best location for our 4-day visit; restaurants, shopping, historical sites all within walking distance. Adriana made check in great and Commendable Rentals was helpful throughout the trip.” Da Leone Guest, 

“Hi Adrian,

Indeed, we arrived home about 1 hour ago. A little sleepy but not as bad as when we went over.

Bev and I can’t thank you and Susan enough!! The trip was faultless…and so educational. Whether we were learning about South African politics, the people, the animal behaviour, the fauna, the economic system, judicial system, apartheid, the banks ( didn’t realize they were rated # 6 in the world…terrific accomplishment! )etc etc, it was just a fabulous experience! And the weather didn’t hurt either!! Your contacts and arrangements made it so easy for us to really enjoy ourselves….we really are extremely appreciative for all you did for us.

Once again, thanks so much for all you did to make our journey to South Africa so memorable.”
– Gord & Bev, Toronto
