Since 1995

The Art
of Italian
Villa Travel

Inspired by a personal love of travel shared between co-founders Mara Solomon and Maryellen Auger, Homebase Abroad is a company of villa travel specialists, working exclusively in Italy. Founded in 1995 as a trusted resource in the pre-Internet age for finding reputable Italian vacation villas, Homebase Abroad has evolved over the last 20 years. Today we are a leader in the industry offering highly personalized travel services and a deep knowledge of Italy cultivated by in-depth research and an extensive network of personal relationships with villa owners.

Supported by a core team of Associates in the United States and a dedicated group of Concierge in Italy, Mara and her staff are constantly evolving and improving, pushing the standards for the industry as they strive to provide the best possible guidance and assistance to their guests.

We are a company of vacation
villa specialists, exclusively
representing Italy 100% of our
time. It is our passion and what
we love to do. We will approach
planning for your holiday with
your full experience in mind.
