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

TUSCANY TESTIMONIALS

“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.”
