Tuscany is a magical place. Every time I arrive there, I think that Tuscany is Tuscany for a reason. The area almost glitters with the burnt sienna light that is characteristic of this special region. From Florence to Pienza, it takes your breath away. Sensory overload is the norm of each day.
You know you can count on us to host vacations that dreams are made of, but now it’s time for something completely different.
Autumn is the time of harvest and nowhere is that abundance more evident than in Tuscany so join us for a week of sightseeing, feasting, sampling local foods, feasting, wine tastings, cooking classes, olive oil tastings, feasting, shopping and…well feasting.
Our villa is the lovely and artfully restored Villa Rossi Mattei, dating back to 1800, belonging to an ancient noble Family (Rossi-Mattei) of Arezzo. The villa is today an elegant holiday villa, situated on the archaeological hill of Castelsecco, one km from the city center of the historical city of Arezzo, surrounded by green in a beautiful historical park.
We have so much in store for you, I can’t wait for you to be there with me to experience it all. We’ll enjoy wine and olive oil tastings, as well as visit Bologna, Florence, Cortona, and many other cities and villages that make Tuscany so special.
From Tuscany, we head to Majestic Rome October 3-6, 2020
Leaving the magic of Tuscany behind can be tough, unless you’re leaving it for the ancient majesty that is Rome…which we will be doing. Arriving at Albergo Santa Chiara in the shadow of The Pantheon, we begin two days of touring (and yes, more feasting…) including The Vatican and Sistine Chapel, the Colosseum and the Forum. You’ll be in awe of what you see, hear, smell, taste and experience.
I hope you know me well enough to know that my crew and I will be dishing up the best the Tuscany has to offer in our own kitchen, for two meals daily. Our luscious plant-based feasts at the villa are supplemented by one meal eaten in the city we are visiting on any given day; (and yes it is all inclusive). Robert and I have planned delicious menus to be enjoyed as we take in the magic that is Tuscany.
