Description

Toscana, Vino e Anima! Details

Enjoy the villa’s beautiful pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room, gym, ping pong table. There’s even a piano if you like to tickle the ivories!

The carefully crafted itinerary strikes the perfect balance between curated tastings, exploration, and relaxation! 

  • Soak in the unhurried pace of life in Tuscany with visits to wineries, olive ranches, and farmer’s markets. Marvel at the magnificent sunsets as we share family-style dinners at the villa.
  • Discover the magic of losing yourself in the tiny cobblestone streets and alleyways of ancient Etruscan hill towns.
  • Revel in the beauty all around you (architecture, paintings, sculpture) as you retrace the footsteps of the renaissance masters, magnificent merchants, and powerful political families of Siena and Florence.
  • Allow yourself to “lose it” for just a moment when you lock eyes with “The David” for the first time.
  • Prepare yourself for an amazing day of cooking classes, wine tasting/school, and truffle hunting at a 300-year-old family-owned winery.
  • Enjoy a relaxing afternoon soak at the nearby Rapolano Terme (hot springs)… or simply take a walk or bicycle ride through the vineyards and rolling backroads on your own.

A private chef will prepare meals for us at the villa on several evenings.  Naturally, paired with carefully-selected wines.
