Tuscan Dream

October 10th-17th-4 ROOMS LEFT

For 1 week, immerse yourself in Tuscan culture - Our one of a kind Tuscan tours provide you THE ultimate experience in understanding this unique region's past - through cooking classes at our private villa, sightseeing in medieval cities like Siena and SanGimignano and our hand-selected off the beaten path excursions like a visit to the legendary butcher, Dario Cecchini from Chef's Table (Season 6), organic wineries, a cashmere goat farm, and so much more!

A note from the Chef:

"Get ready for a culinary experience that takes you beyond the kitchen!


You will live in 5-star luxury in your private Tuscan villa! Complete with our on-site master chef/sommelier to prepare the best local food and wine pairings of the region, cooking classes from authentic Tuscans, sightseeing in the hamlets and hilltowns of the ancient valley, expert and private Tuscan-born tour guides, and even the sound of the wild boar to lull you to sleep at night....


In addition to this, we have paid special attention to providing you with plenty of relaxing time at the gorgeous villa for reclining around the pool,  perhaps a walk in the gorgeous surrounding hills for a Porcini mushroom hunt (they will be in peak season along with Black Truffles), or curling up with a good book by any of the walk-in fireplaces!"

- Chef Linda 



We'll get a chance to meet the legendary butcher - Dario Cecchini (Chef's Table season 6, episode 2) - and eat at his famous restaurant Solociccia and explore is world-famous butcher shop Antica Macelleria Cecchini!


We'll visit a real working Cashmere Goat Farm nestled in the heart of the Chianti Valley. An amazing lunch will be provided by the lovely owner - Nora - as well as an opportunity to shop her hand spun, Cashmere textiles, soaps, and wearables!


In addition to the historic sightseeing, be sure to bring an extra suitcase for all your newly purchased authentic Florentine leather, local artisan-made goods, and specialty food products!

“Did this trip in 2019. Outstanding! The tour was perfectly planned and each excursion was an exciting adventure with amazing food and drink constantly. My favorite was a whole week of not having to make any plans, decisions, or worry about money. Everything was planned for us and was amazing.”

— Betty B.
