We created this site as our Italian home is proving to be particularly popular with YPO WPO members who wish to experience authentic Italian culture in addition to enjoying the beauty of the villa, its setting and award winning infinity pool. 

Drawing upon 22 years of ownership of La Collina del Sole and involvement in the local community we have created a package of “only in YPO WPO” experiences:
• Personal translator and concierge
• Italian cooking and pizza making lessons
• Wine and olive oil tasting
• Guided cross country walks
• Italian conversation lessons
• Riding in national park
• Chauffeur driven tours (Lucca, Florence, Sienna, Cinque Terre, Montelpulciano & Montalcino)
• Opera – Verona and Torre del Lago (Pucinni’s home near Lucca)
• Event bookings

YPO’ers have enjoyed “by invitation only” visits to the Maserati factory and riding a Ducati through the Italian countryside.


Members interested in staying a La Collina del Sole have found it helpful to hold a Skype call with us to create a personal programme of experiences. Please do not hesitate to contact us at chrissie@pearls.co.uk to set up a call.

Please enjoy exploring the site.
