Connecting you to travel's original local experience
Nothing connects you to the soul of a place like being invited into the home of a local. Our story began in 2009 with the Esposito sisters, who invited us into their home in Sorrento, Italy and introduced us to the power of human connections with their warm hospitality and homemade limoncello. From these humble beginnings a decade ago, we now offer Be My Guest experiences exclusively on every trip^, each boasting a rare opportunity to see a destination through a local's lens.

The name ‘Villa Il Leccio’ comes from the centuries-old oak trees (‘leccio’ in Italian) on the property.
Located in the peaceful hills of Chianti, Villa Il Leccio is only 15 kilometres from Florence.
The building was originally a medieval tower house before being converted to a country residence.
Set against the backdrop of oak trees and olive groves, Villa Il Leccio is a slice of heaven in the Tuscan hills. On our exclusive Be My Guest experience, guests will enjoy a guided tour through the wine cellars, picturesque gardens and ancient villa (where the family still lives) with the chance to sample the Landi’s homemade extra-virgin olive oil and Chianti wines.
