About Us

Enzo and Sue Ardovini are the creative force behind The Big Dream Factory. Their commitment to ensure that you experience the ‘real’ Italy is what lies behind Italian Holidays. Their love and understanding of Italian culture, regional foods and the families that produce it, has also led to the development of the Adopt an Olive Tree project.

Italian Holidays is thankful for their amazing team of people dedicated to making sure that you

arrive a tourist leave as family

Angela Ferrara-McEllin whose roots are Italian (of course) is our travelling Master Baker and Cake Decorator for Ferrara’s Bakery as well as being a regular contributor to NBC’s Sunrise Breakfast show. Her Italian family recipes are much sought after by viewers, clients and students alike.

Fernando Carlucci and his team ensure that your stay in Italy is a very comfortable and hospitable one. He also provides a veritable gastronomic tour via his renowned restaurant ‘Il Ginepro’ and we are grateful to everyone there including the wonderful executive Chef, Gina.

Mike O’Leary is our extraordinary ‘WebMaster’ without whom of course, this website would not exist and we would have nowhere to share photographs and your experiences.

If you have questions about your next ItalianHoliday or need help planning one, even if you do not book through us, we are here to ensure that your vacation goes smoothly. Please contact us with your questions and inquiries.
