RENOVATING HOLIDAY &
VACATION HOMES IN ITALY

Whether your holiday (vacation) home in Italy is a private haven or a holiday-let (vacation rental) investment, D&G Design provides a complete service from the purchase process, right through to the renovations, restoration and interior design.

Based between the historic city of Bath in the UK and the rolling hills of Italy’s Le Marche region, D&G Design’s creative workforce can meet with you in either country to discuss and plan your dream holiday or vacation home in Italy.

Overseeing the project from conception through to completion, the duo – consisting of Historic Building Restoration Specialist David and Interior Decorator and Designer Gary – offer a practical, hassle-free service, taking your property from shabby-shack to vacation-ready without the need for you to travel.

For more complex projects requiring structural changes, tiresome red tape is taken care of by native Italian speaker David, who will work with your architect, obtain quotes, source reliable local tradespeople and translate legal documents, making sure that you’re always kept well informed.

We know that time spent at your Italian vacation home is precious. Time you’d rather spend relaxing with your family than negotiating with plumbers and builders.

Let us do the hard work.

We’re ready to make your holiday home somewhere very special.
