The Parker Collection — We are not a listing service.

Very few rental companies employ their own staff in Italy to assist clients 365 days a year, regularly inspect properties and train homeowners to anticipate guest needs by properly maintaining their homes at all times. We do. Sites advertising hundreds or even thousands of rentals hardly ever set foot on a property. Unverified listings leave travelers little recourse when something's awry. Parker is not a huge company nor do we want to be. For us it is always about the number of satisfied customers who refer their friends and loved ones and who confidently return to Italy through Parker Villas year after year.

Parker Villas — Uniquely Personalized for You

In today's hectic world three clicks, two texts and an email may book a cruise or cookie cutter tour. To ensure a delightfully memorable experience from staying in one of our villas, don't be surprised that we insist on speaking with you by phone. While we greatly respect your present time constraints, we place equal value on the time you'll be spending in Italy. In addition to securing a home that best meets your needs, Parker can also arrange hotel reservations, car rental, half day excursions and reality check your entire itinerary. Our unsurpassed attention to detail, our intimate knowledge of Italy and our narrow minded dedication to quality need not frighten you. They are the means to an end we all seek — you having the best vacation ever and us making certain that all your surprises are pleasant.

About our founder

Mario Scalzi is a born and bred Bostonian who schooled in Italy as a child and is fully bilingual Italian/English. He has traveled across Europe extensively, been to Italy over 300 times, bought and sold foreign property, met with owners, inspected homes, established Parker's Italian operations and conducted promotional seminars on behalf of the Italian government and individual regions of Italy. In his teens, Mario hosted a daily Italian language radio program in Boston. In his twenties, he owned a newspaper and later went on to manage sales organizations spanning from financial services to Fortune 50 high tech consultancies. During his management career, Mario realized that making his own international travel arrangements for his sales staff led to greater efficiency and profitability. In 1993, he founded The Parker Company on a simple premise: "I may not know much about the travel industry, but I do know how to travel and how I like to be treated when traveling."
