It was by far the best day of our trip. 

Betty R.

Thank you for 10 glorious days of great food, great wine, great sights… Your newly renovated Tuscan Seaside cottage should be in a magazine… It is absolutely perfect.

Susan R.

Spending time with you in Tuscany was the highlight of our trip and thanks for dealing with us and being so understanding/patient with the changed itinerary.  You have inspired us to learn more about wine. 

Jenny B.

Thanks you so much for yesterday…Everyone loved the day in Florence AND tasting your wines!

We are very fortunate to have chanced across such a magnificent and beautiful Villa to call home for a week! Even better, such gracious hosts we now call friends. We learned a ton about Italy; culture, customs, food, pleasantries, travel… and vineyard soil. Grazie!

A chef and cookbook author offers Italian cooking classes to our guests. Learn the history of Tuscan cooking and the techniques needed to make everything from homemade pasta and sauces, to tempting desserts.

You will dine in Restaurants that have been selected for their commitment to artisan Tuscan cuisine. Italy is the country where the slow food movement began!

Outdoor activities such as cycling, hiking, tennis, yoga and boating are optional. Afterwards, natural hot springs at a spa can soothe any tired muscles. These thermal springs have been used since Etruscan and Roman times!

A little time is always set aside for shopping in charming shops, markets or Florence’s outlets. We’ll help you find and ship home your treasures.

Italy abounds in culture; Museums and churches art and architecture are discussed and de-mystified. Ancient ruins will come to life through an archaeologist led site tour.

Taste and Learn to make authentic Italian gelato or cappuccino from a master. Sample extra virgin olive oil right from the producer.  Tuscany’s extraordinary wine, cheese and oils can be shipped directly to your home.

You will have access to a private villa, a local landmark, where you will enjoy a glass of wine and a sweeping view of the Mediterranean Sea. Recently restored, it was featured in a miniseries for Italian TV. The villa and chapel may be booked for small weddings and events. A limited number of rooms may be available at the villa for your stay. Alternative accommodations are at a four star hotel with pool and spa amenities or a charming B&B with spectacular views of coastal Tuscany and an outdoor pool on the grounds. Wherever you go you will be treated as a friend.
